There isn't another man in the country that's a more perfect example of the modern day black man than Colin Powell. Here's a man that started with nothing. He joined the army as a way out. Through hard work and the right attitude he worked his way through the ranks as a respected leader. He did all of that to end up working for a man that is less qualified than he is. Not only that, he recieves none of the credit and has to stand out there and take all of the blame. If that's not a black man's life then I don't know what is.
