Powell’s accusation [that there is a “dark vein of intolerance in some parts of the Republican Party on race”] is ridiculous on its face. Part of the Republican Party’s problem today is that the party’s leadership, if that’s the right word, is even quicker to grovel on matters of race than Democrats are, almost always at the expense of the Americans who might actually consider voting for them. The quickest way to reduce a typical Republican pol to a quivering jelly is to whisper “racist” in his ear."Calling Out Colin Powell." By Henry McCulloch, The Thinking Housewife, 3/19/15.
Powell’s ongoing ingratitude illustrates another aspect of the pointlessness of Republican “outreach” to most minorities. Not only does the pandering alienate possible supporters, but the pandered-to, even when as lavishly preferred and honored as Powell has been, are almost never grateful. In Powell’s case, the pandered-to diversity paladin is not only ungrateful, he’s a back-stabber to boot.
