…somebody shared this necessary, obvious statement with
our big, dumb, xenophobic, pretty-damn-racist country America:
“It is permitted to be said, such things as, ‘Well you know that Mr. Obama is a Muslim.” Well the correct answer is that he is not a Muslim, he’s a Christian. He’s always been a Christian. But the really right answer is, what if he is? Is there something wrong with being Muslim in this country? The answer’s no, that’s not America. Is there something wrong with some seven-year-old Muslim-American kid believing that he or she could be President?”
There are things that Powell has done that I will never be happy about, but I will always be grateful he had the balls to finally stand up and say this.
