“Bill O’Reilly asked Colin Powell a question during a recent interview that appeared to offend the former Secretary of State.

On Tuesday night, O’Reilly described Powell as “a staunch Republican” until he voted for Barack Obama twice, and noted that he has also recently been critical of the GOP.”*

Colin Powell asked a simple, yet important question of Bill O’Reilly: “Why do you only see me as an African-American?” This is a challenge to the assumption that the only reason Powell could support Obama was on a presumed racial bias. David Sirota challenges the notion and the questions never asked out loud.

  1. I have often wondered why this is so but then again I always knew that , that is the mindset of the majority of the white race.

  2. Thanks for your video. Bill O’rielly has been stuffing gullible right wing listener with false information about Obamacare. He has lying –“oh it’s not working, people are being bumped of their insurance, premiums are higher etc. At the same time Bill O was whining his premiums were increasing exponentially last year. I was been listening, unfortunately, to Bill O and Charles Krauthammer. They were hammering President Obama as a Black man, is weak for Ukraine crisis. They were sked if they wanted President Obama to put American “boots” there. They said no. Bill O and Krauthammer did not have solutions. Then they attacked Obama for reducing military cuts. Bill O and Krauthammer forgot it’s the Repubs and TPs who don’t want more government spending. They can’t have both ways. Then Bill O called Paul Ryan to discuss how Black Americans perceive Ryan. Ryan has been taunting that Blacks are lazy. Bill O defended Ryan and was proud that Ryan and he were viewed as racists. Bill is an old fart who cannot stand seeing a Black American as leader. George Wallace was the same as Bill O now. I hope God punishes him.

  3. The objective by the EXTREME RIGHT TEA PARTY so called conservatives was to impreach this President BEFORE HE LEAVES THE OFFICE OF THE PRESIDENCY, the same MO they did with President Clinton, this was the plan from DAY one of the Obama Presidency. The racial connection of the rich and powerful like Colin Powell is killing these HATERS of a BLACK MAN who has power OVER them ALL..not only ONE elected but twice and the AMERICAN PPL as an collective decide NOT CONGRESS.. not these RACE BASED HATAS..

  4. I have told you Repubs and TPs such as Ted Cruz, Paul Ryan as encouraged by FoxNews like Bill O and Sean Hannity, want to kill us all Blacks for being in this Country. Of course in the cause of killing Blacks they may kill poor Whites some may be their relatives. Look, they are holding Unemployment benefits for 2 mi. Americans for no fault theirs – they cannot find jobs. These Repubs are encouraging CEOs to ship jobs abroad living people here on welfare. Many businesses are closing in Wisconsin. I am surprised people still vote for these people. Bill O should thank God he has a job and may die of a natural death or old age. He must also thank FoxNews that he has good pension benefits. I hope he will call Tommy Thompson, former Wisconsin governor does not have a job now, to see how bad it is to be without a job for no fault of yours. Both Blacks and poor Whites should make sure they don’t vote republican in November. Let Ryan, Cruz and TPs operatives go home to live with their grandparents.

  5. Why do we pander to Bill O'Reilly and his like. We know what he is about. In interviews with African Americans he does respond to the answers he gets., he just goes on with his prepared script. Dismiss him as a racist.

  7. And to take it to another level the idiotic question by O'Reilly was inaccurate. President Obama has had to piecemeal his policies because of obstruction by the GOP. He has YET to implement many facets of what he's been trying to achieve. Yet he's STILL been successful at pulling the entire country back from a near depression in spite of GOP foot dragging!
