Boy oh Boy the Democrats are such a fickle group. After his endorsement of Barack Obama they rushed to embrace Colin Powell. Flaunting the significance of the endorsement. Yet as recently as February 2007 prominent African American Democrats such as Al Sharpton were calling Powell Bush’s House Negro:

Singer, Activist, and Democrat Harry Belafonte Agreed

In an interview on San Diego radio station KFMB-AM last Tuesday, Belafonte compared Powell to a plantation slave who moves into the slave owner’s house and says only things that will please his master. “There’s an old saying,” Belafonte said in that interview. “In the days of slavery, there were those slaves who lived on the plantation and there were those slaves that lived in the house. You got the privilege of living in the house if you served the master … exactly the way the master intended to have you serve him. Source CNN

So which one is it Guys, Is Powell the significant endorsement or the House Negro? As Mr. Belafonte might say, You cant change your mind every Day-O
