"I got mad when I, as a national security adviser to the president of the United States, I went down to meet somebody at Reagan National Airport and nobody recognized -- nobody thought I could possibly be the national security adviser to the president.
I was just a black guy at Reagan National Airport. And it was only when I went up to the counter and said, 'Is my guest here who's waiting for me?' did somebody say, 'Oh, you're General Powell.'
It was inconceivable to him that a black guy could be the national security adviser."

Ha ha ha ha ha haaaaaaaa!!!!
Stop it! You're killing me!!!
I still find it hard to believe. It’s like finding out Tom Cruise is a professional football player.
You know what’s so funny? When we white people aren’t recognized for our importance, we have nothing to blame.
Don’t you know who I am?
Oops, I meant impotent.
Methinks Colin is becoming a head case. He’s turning into Al Sharpton.
ooooh... that musta left a scar. Sounds a little like another case of the same “Don’t You Know Who I Am” syndrome, than it was racism.
makes me want to wash my mouth out for ever supporting this guy. Shoulda known.
So what if I ignore spell chek?
Like so many other folks who got a job based on color and voted because of color.
Martin Luther King said he had a dream that this nation would be a color blind one.
Well the left have certainly forgot that dream of his.
Instead they look at color all the time.
they go on about diversity,look at color
they go on about affirmative action , again based on color
they put folks into groups, based on color and religion.
It is high time the left stops with their open racism and stop splitting folks up.
we will never be Americans as one if the left gets their way
I have a dream
one day we will get jobs based on grades not color
we will be all one not based in groups based on color
we will live where we want and go to school with who we want not based on color or religion
I want a color blind country too, no wonder MLK was a republican he saw how the left destroys people and judges them based on color
So he’s whining because he restrained himself by NOT sticking his chest out and asking, “do you know who I am”???
Somebody’s used to being fawned over. Sounds like a typical politican and this one’s trying to move in on Gates’ racial turf.
White people must be fully educated about which black people are important, so that when we see them at the airport (or at the whorehouse), we can give them (as Ray Barboni would say) "the proper fu--ing respect".
Is RINO a race?
When compared with other cars I’ve owned, I once had an old clunker and noticed when driving it that police liked to pull me over to let me know a headlight was misaligned or that I seemed to take a turn a bit too wide.
CP needs to retire...for good!
Well colin, you have also been a “victim” of affirmative action which is the only way a yokel like you could get to where you are.
But never fear....help is on the way.
Come on, where are those FReepers that wanted him to be Prez?
Lately it seems Powell and McCain are trying to outdo the other with self-destructive moronic public comments.
I’ve never had much use for McCain, but I have hated to see Powell screw himself into the dirt like this.
I used to respect the guy.
