Colin Powell has come out in support of marriage equality.
“In terms of the legal matter of creating a contract between two people that’s called marriage,” Powell said Tuesday, “and allowing them to live together with the protection of law, it seems to me is the way we should be moving in this country. And so I support the president’s decision.”
This follows up a move earlier this week where the NAACP also endorsed marriage rights for same sex couples. Support for marriage equality has often been weak in the african american community.
