The Illinois Leader has a column regarding Condoleeza Rice and her treatment by the left wing of the Democratic Party. Here's a quote...
"Condi Rice has garnered the scorn of her Democratic colleagues, not because of what she has accomplished, but because of who and what she is. She is a black American, who is guilty of an unspeakable crime in liberal eyes. Her crime? She does not worship at the altar of the Democratic Party. Condi Rice has committed the unpardonable sin. She has dared to carve out her own political path while black.
And so has any black American sinned who dares to look the Democratic Party in their face and say, “You are wrong. I don’t need you. I don’t want you. I can do better than you”. And so she has."
A few months ago, there was a man who visited my home looking to do some business with us and somehow we got on the subject of Condoleeza Rice, he also mentioned Clarence Thomas in passing. He said two things along the lines of Condoleeza Rice is a white person in a black person's body and they may have our skin color but they are our kind. An outrageous statement for sure.
