Today on the Ed Show, Colonel Lawrence Wilkerson, former General Colin Powell Chief of Staff decided to get tough and frank about the current state of the Republican Party.He was responding to John Sonunu’s racist statement where he said that General Colin Powell endorsed President Obama because they are both black (paraphrased).

Mitt Romney has not made any attempt to remove Sonunu who seems to have a preponderance of hate for the president as he continues to insult him racially both subliminally and overtly. Change will only occur when evil is called out as Colonel Wilkerson is doing.

Colonel Wilkerson said:

My party is full of racists and the real reason a considerable portion of my party wants president Obama out of the White House has nothing to do with the content of his character, nothing to do with his competence as commander in chief and President and everything to do with the color of his skin and that is despicable.

I got the pertinent snippets of the video below. Please listen and share it. Let’s help good Republicans reclaim their party.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
