- History professor at Arizona State University
Dr. Angela Wilson is an assistant professor of history at Arizona State University. She teaches her students that the Republican Party is a racist entity, and that Colin Powell “sold out” to the enemies of African Americans by accepting President Bush’s appointment as Secretary of State. She has also criticized Powell for opposing reparations for slavery. Reasoning from the axiom that Republicans are only interested in black people if they can exploit the latter for political advantage, she sarcastically told her class that it was “convenient” for Bush to send Powell, “a black man,” to represent his administration at the United Nations.
