Skip to comments.If Susan Rice were a white male, would it still be OK if he lied through his teeth?

How come every time a black person gets criticized for doing an awful job, the left instantly screams racism? Is being black an excuse for screwing up or bald face lies? I don't think so, nor does any other rational human being.
My second question is what type of massive screw-up or lie is worthy of anyone's criticism? What kind of lie would Susan Rice have to tell that everyone would be aghast?
The leftist mantra is; someone who is black can not be critically viewed, they can do and say whatever they like, about any subject and they are not to be ever held to task. How screwed up have the leftists in this country gotten?
Yoo mus’ be racis’...
She is a guy. Have you seen her gait? Janet Reno was more feminine
I believe that Susan Rice didn’t lie—she was told the wrong information and like a loyal servant just gave it out as the best evidence known. She was set up. Her sin—if there was one—is her loyalty. It was hoped her comments would silence the storm of questions—it didn’t work. Question is—do we want lock step loyalism as Sec. of State? I think not. Do not worry—she will not be nominated. Obama used her and he will then discard her. Its a pattern. Put not your trust in a false god.
I find it amusing that Republicans use the word “incompetent” to describe her, and the Left immediately says, “Oh, that’s a ‘racial code word.’ They’re being racist!”
I’m SO TIRED OF IT! SICK AND TIRED OF IT! There are lazy blacks, there are lazy Hispanics, there are lazy whites. There are incompetent blacks, incompetent Hispanics, and incompetent whites. If the distributions are disproportionate, blame it on the social or environmental conditions BUT DON’T BLAME IT ON WHITE PEOPLE!
We’ve given non-whites more opportunities to advance than any society in the history of the planet, but white people, specifically men, are considered racist for even passively mentioning that blacks account for the overwhelming majority of inmates. Apparently now statistics are racist too.
Just call me a big, fat, greedy white man who hates all people of color, I guess.
Hey, you don't need to stretch it that far. What if it was a black female named Rice who worked for George W Bush?
Would she be getting a pass, or would she get called every racist and sexist name in the books?
Rice shouldn’t be expected to be judged by the same standards as a melanin-challenged male. Her status is determined by her sex and race.
My guess is that she really isn’t smart enough to realize what the hell she was doing, nor the impact.
Coddled affirmative action elite who never had a real job, except as some kind of expert, and by expert, I mean the primary qualification is ‘black’.
Never nominate any woman whose last name is Rice to be Secretary of State. She’s bound to be caught in a whopper, whether it’s “the warning shot will be a mushroom cloud” or “a bad movie about Mohammed made them do it.”
It’s called affirmative action.
If black people and women, and especially black women, cannot be criticized or corrected, it’s a darn good argument for not promoting any such person to a high level.
That’s not my opinion, BTW, just a logical extrapolation from the notion that such people are above criticism.
Just as if hiring black people when they don’t work out is fraught with risk, it creates an incentive to just not hire them in the first place.
Rice is married to a White guy. They have two kids.
The problem is that people of a herd mentality all see anything that is happening to one of them, is happening to all of them.
The crime, or deed, doesn’t matter if perpertrated by a black person (unless they’re conservative), and they are - to their mindset - innocent.
In my hometown a recent news story is about a young, black male who stabbed his own Mother multiple times in the middle of the street, with his younger sister looking on.
Comments from a “friend” of his were, “He worshipped his Mother and Sister like a queen and a princess.” And, “he is a good man”.
Her comments concluded that if any other commentors said anything about it that we were racists and committing slander.
You can’t fix stupid.
I have to look at the word “racist” as a torpedo...and “damn the torpedoes, full speed ahead.”.
That should, of course, refer to “firing black people.”
Yes, because he would still be a DemocRAT. Now, were Susan a white male Republican...
Or perjured himself before a Grand Jury? Oh, right, he was a DemonRAT. Race really isn’t the issue—it’s about power.
Yes. To the vast majority of American-born blacks, being black trumps all.
I think your use of the word “if” is a dog whistle and racist code for, “I hate all black people and especially women!”
Report to your reeducation center immediately.
The left isn't the only one who does that when it comes to black females named Rice at the state dept. Do you think a bunch of conservative freepers would be drooling over the thought of running someone for President if a white male had been a total bust during Bush's second term and made these comments?
