Condoleezza Rice Dismantles Critical Race Theory

“I don’t have to make white kids feel bad for being white. So somehow, this is a conversation that has gone in the wrong direction.”

During an interview on ABC’s “The View” on Wednesday, Condoleezza Rice, a former Secretary of State and current Director of the Hoover Institution, slammed Critical Race Theory, saying that white people should not “feel guilty” over the past and that it is wrong to cause black people feel “disempowered by race.”

Her comments suggesting that people should be judged off the content of their character and not the color of their skin were made while discussing the issue of if parents should be able to have control over what their children are taught in school.

“If I could take a moment to talk about the whole issue of Critical Race Theory and what is, and is not being taught, I come out of an academic institution, and this is something that academics debate. What is the role of race and so forth?” Rice said. “And let me be very clear; I grew up in segregated, Birmingham, Alabama. I couldn’t go to a movie theater, or to a restaurant with my parents. I went to segregated schools till we moved to Denver. My parents never thought I was going to grow up in a world without prejudice, but they also told me, ‘That’s somebody else’s problem, not yours. You’re going to overcome it, and you are going to be anything you want to be.’ And that’s the message that I think we ought to be sending to kids.”

“One of the worries that I have about the way that we’re talking about race is that it either seems so big that somehow white people now have to feel guilty for everything that happened in the past. I don’t think that’s very productive,” Rice added. “Or black people have to feel disempowered by race. I would like black kids to be completely empowered, to know that they are beautiful in their blackness, but in order to do that, I don’t have to make white kids feel bad for being white. So somehow, this is a conversation that has gone in the wrong direction.”

    HOW CAN WE GET PAST THE LOOKS AND ACTIONS OF HATE TOWARDS, WHITES BY BLACKS, FOR THE PAST DISCRETIONS OF HUMAN HISTORY?
    PLEASE BE AWARE HOW THE CULTURE HAS CHANGED WITH THE INCEPTION GO THE BLM AND WORSENED WITH CRT! I AM ALMOST 70 AND HAVE NEVER TREATED ANY BLACK PERSON JUDGEMENTALLY! NOR ANY OTHER RACE SUCH AS ASIAN, INDIAN, ETC. WE ALL HAVE TO GET PAST THE “SKIN COLOUR” OF DIFFERNT HUMAN BEINGS AND NOT SEE IT ANYMORE, IN JUDGING PEOPLE! WHICH WE ALL ARE!

    Wish this lady would run for President. I think the GOP (rinos) should think about it.
