Race, racism, and racist are not verbs. Gen. Powell is a Republican Party member. 99 to 93% of American black citizens are not members of The GOP.
Gen. Powell can only speak as a Republican Part member. He, Justice Thomas, Thomas Sowell, Walter Williams and Condolezza Rice, don't speak for the 99 to 93% of us American black citizens. He, Gen. Powell, is yours. Not a progressive or liberal bone in his whole body!!!
