    Condoleezza Rice’s CRT stance proves she’s a foot solider for white supremacy














    Touré
    ·5 min read



    In this article:




    OPINION: Touré writes we are debating about whether we should teach our children real American history or if we should lie to them and protect their fragile white hearts.
    Condoleezza Rice’s recent appearance on The View was offensive and disgusting for many reasons but she was who we thought she was: a soldier for white supremacy. Her thoughts on Critical Race Theory are completely white centric, as in, they revolve around the thoughts and needs of white people.
    Her primary argument against Critical Race Theory is that history should not be taught in a way that makes white kids feel bad. What? We should whitewash U.S. history to protect the feelings of white children? Excuse me, I misspoke — we should whitewash U.S. history even more than we already do in order to protect the feelings of white children?

    First of all, what about the feelings of Black children? What would their feelings be if they knew they were being taught a version of American history that was distorted to protect white kids? What message does that send to them? And what about the feelings they have when learning about the real American history?
    Also this — white children and adults should absolutely feel bad about the past atrocities committed by white Americans. They should feel guilty. They should cringe at what their ancestors did. They should also understand that modern white power is directly related to those atrocities. White people gained economic and institutional advantages from slavery and segregation and the long-term subjugation of Black people that continue to help them to this day.

    White people should know that American history is rated X and their relatives are the one who Black people had to fear. They didn’t arrive and have a nice dinner with the natives and buy Manhattan for a few trinkets.
    The Europeans who settled early America made treaties with American Indians and then violated those treaties and slaughtered the natives as rapidly as possible. They didn’t merely own slaves and treat them kindly. They had a cruel and peculiar institution that kidnapped and human trafficked and then beat and raped and subjugated humans for generations.
    Slavery was far more cruel and frightening than most people even know unless you read diaries written by former slaves. And the past is not done with us — slavery created the economy and the wealth that led to America becoming a global economic power. You didn’t have to own slaves in order to participate in that wealth-building but all of the wealth derived from it went to white people and was thus stolen from Black people.

    American history is a series of cycles where white people grow more powerful because of the legalized oppression of Black people. American history is a series of stories where white people knock us down and stand on our necks and then ask why we’re on the ground. If we don’t know history we don’t understand reality and how it was constructed. I really don’t care if learning this makes white kids feel bad — and if it doesn’t then they are too heartless.
    Also this — yes the teaching of American history can sometimes make people feel bad. Terrible things happened and it’s traumatizing. We should not hide the truth from our kids; we should aim to teach them what happened and then, together, deal with how we feel about it. Because even if the history initially makes you feel bad, that’s not enough of a reason to not teach it.
    I recall many days where I learned more about slavery or segregation or Jim Crow or lynchings, days in grade school or in college where I was a Black Studies major. I often walked out of a classroom in a rage, thinking about the indignities visited upon my ancestors. But when I calmed down I realized those lessons had filled me with a sense of purpose —knowing what my people had gone through from slavery to the Civil Rights and Black Power movements made me feel like I had to do something valuable with my life in order to honor the fights and the sacrifices they had made.

    I could feel the shoulders that I was standing upon to reach up for the life that I had and I owed it to them to use my life in a way that might honor them and make them proud.
    On The View, Rice suggests that learning about America’s racial history could make Black children feel disempowered by race but it had the exact opposite impact on me. Just because the stories are hard to hear does not mean that it will damage the listeners.
    Our classrooms should not be another example of white privilege, they should reflect the ugly reality of American history. But really the whole discussion is bizarre — we are debating about whether we should teach our children real American history or if we should lie to them and protect their fragile white hearts.
    I cannot accept a country that contorts itself to avoid causing white pain. I’m not here to help comfort white people. And Lord knows I am never, ever going to center them.

    Ed, it makes no difference where something comes from. What's important is that we understand what is transpiring in America. We White people, that founded, fought for, and created a "Great Nation", are being marginalized in it's History. It's funny as hell how blacks are portraying their ancestors as the builders of America. How in hell do they think that uncivilized, uneducated people with pubic hair on their heads, designed and constructed the once greatest Nation in the World. If in fact, cleaning the Owners homes and picking his Cotton and Tobacco equals creating America is like Russ saying he screwed Angelina Jolie because he was thinking of her when he jacked-off. In other words.....it only happened in their wildest dreams. Also, anyone that believes that **** is a fvcking Idiot with the I.Q. of a grasshopper....just saying.

    Al, count me in.....I just can't function normally sober anymore. Just the thought of how racist we are is really tearing me apart. I wonder if the splibs will let me identify as African American. Maybe I could join the NAACP like Russ did. Even better I could tell them Amos and Andy was my great uncles. It worked for Russ when he told them Whoopi Goldberg was his twin sister.....

    The lunatics will soon be running the asylum. Because it's lunacy to think white children should be made to feel guilty for things they had no part in, things that happened long before they were born.

    These radical blacks just can't let it go.

    They have to keep racism alive, they have to holler "racism!" at every opportunity. Because if racism disappears there's no need to give them special treatment. THEY are the ones that keep stoking the fires of racism because it's in their best interests to do so.

    And they're doing a good job. Obama wasn't elected by Black voters. He was elected by White liberals who've been programmed to feel guilt over slavery by the Leftist media...a media that is influenced by Black accusations of racism.

    You see, it's a form of racial extortion. If you don't come out and prove you are not racist, you will be accused of racism. Companies, business's, corporations, organizations, government agencies, falling all over themselves to prove they're not racist. Why do you think almost every advertisement on TV now features predominantly Black actors?

    Because the advertisers are scared they'll be labeled racist if they don't.

    That is why Trump is hated so bad by the Progressives. He stopped the momentum Obama had going. What's happening in America is not a thing that will go away if we take back the House and Senate. It's going to take actual "Hands On" adjustments.
