Condoleeza Rice Lines Up with Obama on Race

For the first time in quite a while I found myself agreeing with Condoleeza Rice. She refers to the race discussion of today as a consequence of a "birth defect" afflicting the United States at its birth. The defect was slavery, and she expresses her observations of today's manifestations of the birth defect.

She was one of those white minded darkies BillHawk approved of before this. I wonder how she will fare now?

Yeah slavery was a "defect". White man should NEVER have brought them over and he would not have had he realized the consequences. Most slaves were happy though, I dont understand what all the fuss is about. They lived in homes (some real nice), had food and everything. They worked instead of stealing, selling/using drugs and killing each other all day and leaching off the system. Much better than most of them are doing today if you ask me.

Eh, there are many examples of slaves treated right. Not all, but the majority from what I understand were. Oh, and I read plenty, thank you.

Driving home this evening and listening to NPR on the radio, I heard an interview with a guy who wrote a sort of biography of Condoleeza Rice. Sort of one because she is obviously still generating material for a real biography since she isn't yet dead. I believe the book is called "Twice as Good" or something like that.

JayReilley better buy it and read it, along with a few others who sing her praises here. She ain't what you boys think she is. She is a lot more interesting that I ever thought she was, which should give you pinheads reason to pause. Jim

I read the words in the article cited from the OP, and agree with her assessment of where racism began and where we are today, I wouldn't expect that anyone could disagree with that. I don't see this diffusing the issue in the democratic presidential race, however. I wonder, now that you know her a little better, what would you expect her to do if she happened into a church and heard a sermon like the one which stirred this up . . . think she'd go back?
