Time to Play "Face the Racist"

The other night, I turned on CNN in hopes of getting some intelligent Presidential election coverage and instead I happened to catch a follow up commentary by John Sununu on Piers Morgan.

John is no stranger to making a complete ass out of himself on national television, but at the (1:02) mark of this clip something more sinister showed through his thin veneer.

John Sununu - "When you take a look at Colin Powell, you have to wonder whether that's an endorsement based on issues or whether he's got a slightly different reason for preferring President Obama."

Piers Morgan - "What reason would that be?"

John Sununu - "Well ... I think when you have somebody of your own race that you're proud of being President of the United States, I applaud Colin for standing with him."

When you take a look at Colin Powell ... ?

What are we looking at?

Are we looking at his black skin, John?

Perhaps we should be looking at your cold black heart, John.

I had my coat on, and was ready to go toilet paper my local Republican Party campaign office, when a glimmer of light appeared on my TV.

I cannot tell you how impressed I am by Lawrence Wilkerson in this clip. The world needs more men and women like this ... brave enough to speak out in the face of this kind of ugliness.

Col. Wilkerson's chilling comments are tradgically echoed by new polling results released by the Associated Press today.

- 51% of Americans now express anti-black attitudes, compared with 48% in a similar 2008 survey.

- When measured by an implicit tacial attitudes test, the number of Americans with anti-black sentiments jumped to 56%, up from 49% during the last Presidential election.

- 52% of non-Hispanic whites expressed anti-Hispanic attitudes. That figure rose to 57% in the implicit test.

As coincidence would have it, the polls also show 51-52% of Americans behind Romney/Ryan.

ERX Pro As a new bodybuilding routine exercise confusions reigns about whether it in order to be done for your whole body or halfway. In most gyms the bodybuilder is not permitted to let the knees go past the toes as a subject of principle.
