Only blacks are lazy?  Only blacks are evasive?

Colin Powell seems to think so:

"There's also a dark vein of intolerance in some parts of the party," Powell said on NBC's "Meet the Press." "What do I mean by that?  What I mean by that is they still sort of look down on minorities."

Powell, who endorsed Obama, pointed to a number of statements that were directed at Obama as evidence that there is still racism within the party.

"When I see a former governor say that the president is 'shuckin' and jivin'.' That's a racial-era slave term," Powell said, referring to former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin using the term to describe Obama's response to the attacks in Libya.

Powell also pointed to former New Hampshire Gov. John Sununu, who was an aggressive surrogate for Mitt Romney, for calling Obama "lazy" after the first debate during the campaign.

"He didn't say he was slow, he was tired, he didn't do well; he said he was 'lazy,'" Powell said "Now, it may not mean anything to most Americans, but to those of us who are African Americans, the second word is "shiftless," and then there's a third word that goes along with it."

In the absence of real racism, it has to be sniffed out where it is not, apparently.  According to Wikipedia, "Shuckin' and jivin' (or shucking and jiving) is a slang term for the behavior of joking and acting evasively".  And Obama's response to the Libya attack has certainly been evasive. Or am I racist to say that?

Powell's admitted to voting for Obama because he's black and then calls others racist. Look in the mirror General.

The day i meet an American black who was actually born in Africa, i'll call him an African American. All the rest are just doing what they always do, looking for special treatment, as if there's any special treatment they don't already get.

As for Powell, he's a phony "war hero". It wasn't he who ran and won Desert Storm. It was a true hero, Gen. Norman Swartzkauf. (sp) And, anyone who voted for the Marxist-in-Chief (only) because of his color can't afford to call anyone else a racist. This is also true of 98% of America's blacks, all of whom voted for Obummer for the very same reason.

"Beware of those who cry racism, for they are the true racists..."

Not hate, but we're learning fast from those of you on the left. And only a leftist would call him a "patriot".

Apparently there is/was a "racial-era"...
When was that exactly?
I think many people who viewed the first debate would have assumed that the President went into that underprepared. And many would have then believed that the cause for being underprepared was with underestimating his opponent and/or laziness.
While I can certainly accept racial undertones in "shuckin' and jivin'" there are none in lazy.

Anon 6:47, Obummer's poor performance wasn't due to lazyness. It was due to his extreme arrogance.
