Troubled by conservatives pushing the idea that Obama is a Muslim or of Muslim heritage, Colin Powell gave a passionate defense of Obama and Muslim Americans citing a Muslim American soldier that gave his life in Iraq.
“Well the correct answer, 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 a Muslim in this country? The answer is no, that’s not America.” - Colin Powell, 10/19/08
Thank you General Powell for putting the white KKKristian party in it's place.
Despicable and predictable, conservatives are already implying Powell’s endorsement is about race: Drudge Report headline:
POWELL FOR OBAMA: IT'S NOT ABOUT RACE
