    Remember When The GOP Embraced Former Secretary of State Colin Powell ?

    Former Secretary of State Colin Powell said on NBC’s Meet the Press Sunday that the Republican party is suffering from a “dark vein of intolerance” and that some in the party seem to “look down on minorities.”

    Powell pointed to former vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin’s use of the “shuck and jive” phrase in reference to President Obama, calling it a “racial era slave term,” and took on Romney surrogate John Sununu for calling President Obama “lazy.”

    “When I see another former governor after the president’s first debate where he didn’t do very well, says that the president was lazy,” Powell said. “He didn’t say he was slow, he was tired, he didn’t do well, he said he was lazy.”

    “Now, it may not mean anything to most Americans but to those of us who are African-Americans, the second word is shiftless and then there’s a third word that goes along with it,” he said.
