In a wonderful surprise yesterday, former Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Colin Powell told CNN’s Wolf Blitzer that he does support Marriage Equality. Powell now joins a series of African-American leaders who very vocally support marriage equality, including Russell Simmons, the Rev. Al Sharpton, and Jay-Z.
Support for Marriage Equality from the African-American community is now at an all time high of 59% according to an ABC News/Washington Post poll.
It looks as though Republicans are on the WRONG side of history.
