Condoleezza Rice Criticizes Left for 'Big Problem' When It Comes to Race; Cites the Merits of School Choice

TrĂ© Goins-Phillips : Aug 6, 2020

"A child's zip code in America should never determine their future ... we're very, very strong on school choice." -President Donald Trump

Rice, the first black American to serve as secretary of the US Department of State, talked about systemic racism during a Zoom call with New York Times' Peter Baker for the Aspen Security Forum.

"I don't really care if we're colorblind, but I would like to get to a place that, when you see somebody who is black, you don't have preconceived notions of what they're capable of, who they are—by the way, what they think, which is a big problem of the left," Rice said. "You look at somebody who's black and you think you know what they think, or you at least think you know what they ought to think."

One example of this issue bearing itself out occurred in May, when presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden said during an interview with liberal talk radio host Charlamagne tha god, who is black, that voters "ain't black" if they choose President Donald Trump over him.

Rice explained to Baker she does believe systemic racism remains an issue in the US, calling slavery the country's "birth defect."

However, she explained it's critical to target tangible issues with actionable steps, rather than going after a loosely defined proverbial boogeyman.

"I am not one who believes you can just sort of 'take on systemic racism,'" Rice said. "I don't even know how to start. I do think you can take on the impact of the educational system for minority kids that leaves most of them behind. I think you can take that on. But people might not like my answer. My answer is: let's do school choice in a big way."

President Donald Trump and Education Secretary Betsy DeVos are both advocates for school choice, a system in which the government sends tax dollars back to families so they can choose the best academic fit for their children... Subscribe for free to Breaking Christian News here
