Powell is voting for Obama simply because he is black. No other reason

Really, Ryan? General Powell says otherwise. In fact, he gave a thoughtful, well-reasoned basis for his decision -- one which was respectful of both candidates, yet critical of how McCain has chosen to campaign.

On the other hand, you don't provide any basis for your comment. That lack of any supportive argument really speaks for itself, doesn't it?

Now, let me ask you a question: why are you suspicious when one African-American supports another? Are you similarly suspicious of whites supporting other whites, or do you take that for granted?

You need to examine your own racial bias. I believe that psychologists call what you're doing "projection".
