My wife was watching some ridiculous reality show about women who are in the ministry with their husbands. Last night as I was walking by the TV, I heard the word “Plantation”. Apparently the subdivision or the club or something was named, xxx-plantation or something along those lines. One of the black women became angry at the name or word “Plantations”. I looked at my wife and said, this woman is supposed to be a pastor’s wife and she’s acting like that? Furthermore, what’s wrong with the word “Plantation”? I asked my wife if the woman had ever been a slave on a plantation and if so, she should be quite old.

I’m black and I really get tired of these people who want to demonize other people by monitoring what they say. According to Powell, white people on the right should watch what they say b/c they don’t understand what it means to be black. How many times do you think he was called an Uncle Tom and an Oreo by the same people whose TV shows he goes on when he was fully supportive of the Republican Party? I wonder if he is bothered by the names he was called back then by the very left who he has aligned himself with?

Thank you Alvin for your excellent and salient post. I too am thoroughly disgusted by the method in which obama and his minions use "racism" ONLY to accomplish their despicable goal of achieving 'POWER AND CONTROL' over all of America.

While I have always stated that the only good thing that came out of the 60's was the Civil Rights Act, (and I mean that) and I always knew that as a white woman, I had the same status as a human being as does anyone else, I never knew hate.
Again Alvin, thank you

Yes, Republicans are SO racist that a Republican made him Joint Cheifs of Staff, a Republican made him Secretary of State, and a Republican appointed a balck woman to succeed him when he decided the best way to serve his country was to abandon it and point fingers for HIS OWN MISTAKES. I used to have alot of respect for Colin Powell but he is just furthering the degradation of America. His support of Barrack Obama is in direct violation of his Oath of Service, He has placed personal bigotry before the Constitution of this country and as such he is unfit for the respect he once held amongst US servicemen. I am ashamed of him.

Black Americans are being used by racist to promote an agenda that will destroy whites, blacks and all other races. This is the same tactics that Jackson, and Sharpton use to maintain there base of supporters. Obama's agenda has had a devistating affect on the black community, with increased unemployment, and taking away incentives to work. As long as you live on food stamps you will be a pawn of the federal government.

Last night on the O'Reilly Factor, former Secretary of State Colin Powell again accused the Republican party of racism, saying calling President Obama lazy is code language despite Obama referring to himself as lazy. Powell's comments come two weeks after he said the GOP had a "dark vein of intolerance" on NBC's Meet the Press.
