Powell’s statement on the young American Muslim killed in Iraq is incredibly powerful and poignant.
Like me, Powell agrees that this embedded racism and bigotry against Muslims who are American and Muslims abroad has to be reversed. I look forward to the day when we have Muslims on the Supreme Court, in the Senate and White House. I look forward to the day when we have Asians, gay people, Latinos, Inuits, and the like as Americans aspiring to occupy the highest offices in the land.
Powell put this out there in a big way. It’s long overdue.
