Condi Rice on Face the Nation (just plain interesting)

Condi Rice was in the second half of Face the Nation. Worth seeing. She talked a lot about historical context of the current protests. She has quite a history herself growing up in Birmingham and being 40% European.

The transcript is here: [link:https://www.cbsnews.com/news/transcript-condoleezza-rice-discusses-race-on-face-the-nation-june-7-2020/|]

1. Aggravating, though, wouldn't answer direct questions.

5. Yes, I agree

Seemed like she was keeping all of her opportunities open. She stuck to an "advising the president" perspective for the interview.

What she said about China and Russia was spot-on, IMHO.

2. Screw her

She has no guts as she illustrated by walking the tightrope.

She's part of the oligarchy.

She can go to hell.

3. IIRC she said in 08 slavery was our country's 'original sin'---said when Obama gave speech on race

I believe she knew one of the girls murdered in the Birmingham church bombing

6. Her privilege was on full display.

She's great at condescension. The bullshit got especially thick when she was suggesting what our psychopath pres should do to be a uniter with "empathy" etc.

How stupid do you have to be to think asshole Trump can be empathetic? He's a psychopath. Get with the program, Condi.

9. "Twitter and tweeting are- are not great ways for complex thoughts, for complex messages."

This line from the interview said it all. Complex thoughts assume a cognitive capacity lacking in Trump. Its not hard to understand.

13. Waist-up interview

She wore a very smart white suit. I suppose it was for Sunday.

I had forgotten all about the shoe shopping and the boots.

16. Thread trashed. You're still kind of new here and not many posts so

you should know that posting stuff about Republicans responsible for two wars that crippled our nation is not the way to win friends and influence people on this website.
I will now view any future posts of yours complimentary about GOP with a certain suspicion.

23. Condi's DNA is 40% European, but she does not identify with it.

I saw her on Finding You Roots and the DNA results were surprising. She was shocked herself.

She states she had a white great-great-grandfather who was her great-great-grandmother's slave owner, but this would account for only 6.25%.

Obviously there is more going on here, even further generations back than she could trace. This is not unheard of in the AA community, although this is higher than average. Also sometimes DNA tests can over or underestimate ethnicity.

Unfortunately, she talks the talk, but doesn't walk the walk.
