Lawrence Wilkerson is a retired military officer who fought for our country, former chief of staff to Secretary of State Colin Powell, a visiting professor at the College of William & Mary in Williamsburg, Virginia, a white man, and a long-time member of the Republican Party. He has something to tell you.
The only way the GOP will realize that they betting against the tide of history is to lose this and all elections big time, until they realize that the Party of Abraham Lincoln should not discriminate.
VOTE ON NOVEMBER 6 AND TELL THE REPUBLICANS THAT IT IS NOT CORRECT TO CATEGORIZE PEOPLE ON COLOR ALONE.
Between the two people in the above photograph?
Except that the guy on the left has it on his tee-shirt and the guy on the right, a chief Romney surrogate speaking for the GOP, says it on national television and cable.
We have come too far in the last sixty years to let Mitt Romney and his party take us back to the “good old days.”
PLEASE VOTE AND GET YOUR FRIENDS AND NEIGHBORS TO VOTE ON NOVEMBER 6. LET THE GOP KNOW THAT IT IS NOT RIGHT TO GO BACK TO THE “GOOD OLD DAYS.”
By playing the race card in summarily dismissing Colin Powell’s endorsement of President Barack Obama for President of the United States, chief Romney surrogate, John Sununu, reveals the Romney campaign’s fundamental reason why white people should vote for Mitt.
Of course, in the grand old tradition of the Grand Old Party wherein they say what is really on their mind, then immediately retract the statement and apologize, Sununu later retracted his claim that Powell was only supporting Obama because he is black.
All of the Republicans have done this from Akin to Mourdock to Romney, himself.
Remember what Mitt Romney said about the 47 percent and his later “apology?” This tactic is so obvious and is so tacky. But then, the GOP seems to be stuck in the Fifties and all that entails don’t they?
Get the real message you want out first, and then “apologize” for saying it.
Don’t let Racism win.
GET OUT THE VOTE ON NOVEMBER 6TH.
He was a young man growing up in a racially segregated country. As he came into his own, he was able to achieve many great things and become the architect of one of the most formidable military strategies of all time. He was embraced by both parties as a leader and statesman.
Today, he announced who he will support for President of the United States of America in a carefully reasoned and elegantly phrased interview.
