She needs to grasp the fundamental truth about this Race idea. She doesn’t grasp that everybody is a member of some race so everyone is free to talk about race whenever and however they please, just as she does.

Condi needs to know it’s better to talk about race than to keep her ideas to herself and simply lash out whenever she wants to but others need to shut up.

Rice said, “Look, the president needs to be a lot more careful in the way that he speaks about these things because race is a very delicate and raw nerve in America. We have a birth defect of slavery. (What “WE”???) We have a birth defect of a number of people being treated badly, so you have to be careful.”

She continued, “But I’ll tell you, Fareed, it’s not all coming out of the White House. I hear a lot coming out of the left on these issues, too, that I don’t like the language that is used about people, the notion that because somebody looks a certain way or is of a certain color, they ought to think a certain way, and if they don’t think a certain way, then they’re really not black. You know, come on, we need to all backoff. We need to watch our language toward one another. We need to start to apply that golden rule. Don’t say something about somebody that you wouldn’t want to be said about you. And I think we’ll all be better off. I think this is a national project, not a White House project, not a congressional project. It’s a national project.”

She added, “I’ve said, and I think everybody understands that I don’t like a lot of the language that this president uses. I especially don’t like the language about immigrants because, in so many ways, immigrants are an easy target.”
