So who's the racist?

HEY, STOP trying to confuse me!   I began the week reading comments from such conservative Olympians as Limbaugh, Will and Buchanan (Pat, not James!)  that the reason Colin Powell endorsed Obama was that - need I say more? - well, it was racially motivated.  Both, in case you didn't know,  are African-Americans who have doubtless shared  a lot of time after hours in billiard parlors touting their bookies' latest odds on NBA games.  Still, I must ask whether the same conclusion would apply to a retired white general who would endorse THAT WHITE ONE for president because he wanted the election to be in his own colorless comfort zone?
