RIP Colin Powell

See this guy? He was a real American patriot. He was the first African American to hold the office of Secretary of State. He was also a big time military commander and an author who really understood America. When you look at all the clowns parading around with confederate flags and telling you they are American patriots, refer them to this guy. Because he was the real deal. One of these days, America will hopefully wise up and understand they they are a melting pot country. That white privilege is the thing that makes the country look smaller and more bigoted than it probably is. Colin Powell was a great American, and it didn't matter what colour he was or what god he worshiped. Great is great.
