i came across a quote from another question in regards to Colin Powell being an "angry black man looking to stick it to the white man." do you think that black people or african-americans that speak openly about any issue, race included, are trying to stick it to the white man as quoted?`Answer Question

Maybe some are. If they are in the corporate world they are usually well educated and look beyond race. My husbands boss is black. He has no chip on his shoulder and hires based on ability and does not just hire black people for the sake of helping a brother out. He was born in the ghetto and got out on his own. Many of his own race call him a sellout because he went to college and got his master's, speaks in an educated way (they say he speaks white) and now has a high 6 figure salary. He said frankly he feels uncomfortable going back to his old neighborhood since he has been called out.
I don't agree with the statement. Colin Powell is not an angry black man. He is a man who should change his party if he agrees with Obama. Powell like many is enamoured with Obama but if he really has Republican values will find he disagrees with him on most everything soon enough

No, I think they are moving up in their chosen careers because the are bright, educated people who want to succeed. It has nothing to do with anyone "sticking it" to someone else. There could be a few out there like that, but the majority are just hard working people who are trying to better themselves just like anyone else.
