Colin Powell Still Sees 'Dark Vein' of Intolerance in GOPSpeaking on the day following the 50-year anniversary of “Bloody Sunday” in Selma, Alabama, the first African-American Secretary of State Colin Powell said he still sees a “dark vein” of intolerance in the Republican Party, echoing comments that he made in 2013. I still see it in the Republican Party and I still see it in other parts of our country. President Obama, along with former President George W. Bush, was in Selma Saturday to mark the anniversary of the seminal moment in the civil rights movement. They were joined by Rep. John Lewis, D-Georgia, who was brutally beaten during the march out of Selma that day in 1965.
