of course she is lying partly because she is american. all right wing americans and most of the rest have lost touch with reality. its part of the delusional escapist thinking of the rich descendants of those who worked to create the contry. the descendants think they are owed and shouldn't have to work like the previous generations, just invade other people countries. and pay for oit with a credit card.

The al Qaeda leader, Al-Zawahiri, said Obama, Colin Powell and Condoleezza Rice "confirmed" Malcolm X's definition of a "house slave." He was referring to Malcolm X's distinction between slave-era "house Negroes," who lived comfortably in the big house abetting white supremacy, and "field negroes," who toiled in the fields under the whip, plotting resistance.

The race reference accomplished nothing! House Negro? Only a racist would use that title. I can see much jealousy from some here and even though it not a qualified way to ascertain, at least one person with a massive case of low self-esteem.
You are correct Martin, this Bobert person appears to be a Facist as well as a Racist and upon further reflection, several other "...ists"
that reflect those that want to destroy, not help, this Country
Mow that I have jumped into the center of posting procedures that I have been decrying, I will now go on that Sabbtical.

If you have time, reread this thread and notice how deceitful, without fact, and mean spirited it became. Yours truly included.

Trying to reinforce your position late in the thread with the same statement you started out with shows frustration with regard to the originator. More jealousy exhibited.

BTW, a 13 page memo from Richard Clarke has surfaced that he sent Condi Rice in late 2000 that outlines the threat of Al Qida. In the very first sentence he uses the word urgent and underlines it. He then goes on to provide a long detailed lists of terrorist comings and goings and asks for a "principles meeting' ASAP. But out Mr. Rice must not have thought it to serious since it was not acted upon until just a few days before 9/11...

It is the political party machine that chooses the candidates, Mary Garvey. They choose who the people get to vote for. They fund the campaigns. Most of the people they choose are those who will follow the established party line. It doesn't matter much what 51% of the people think when virtually all the key candidates are fielded BY the ruling $ySSTem and NOT by the public.

That was the way they did it in Communist Russia too. The Party chose the candidates...the people ratified them.

The only difference in the USA is that the Party is split into 2 supposedly separate wings...the Democrats and the Republicans...but it's still really just one huge Party, and IT chooses who you will vote for. Tweedledum or Tweedledee. There are very few real exceptions to that situation, which is really almost no choice at all.

Nuclear weapons ain't the "security blanket" it once was...

You are living in a Reaganesque dream world, my frined, that has nuthin' to do with the realities that somehow seem to escape Bush and his advisors... This ain't no rerun of "Death Valley Days". This id the real world. China is noe bankrollin' the US. Do you deny that?

You may think you are safe and depending on yer age you may be. But yer kids aren't. You president has sold their security off so he could give his buddies and contributors big tax cuts which have done nuthin' but make the US governement beggers to the *loan sharks* of the international community, i.e. China...

If 51% of the voters of each state don't want white guy politics they can vote for someone else. I think we might see that happen really soon.

Okay. Let me just interject a wee note of sanity here.

Ahem...

The real reason that Condoleeza Rice lies...sometimes...is that William Shatner rejected her once. That's right! He did. She wanted to go out with him once, back in the 80's, and he gave her the brush-off! She was devastated. She has been acting out her emotional pain ever since by doing things like lying about Iraqi WMD's and stuff of that sort. It's emotional compensation for a badly bruised ego, and we should all have some compassion and understanding for it. This sort of thing can happen to anyone. You or I could get rejected by someone we held in the highest esteem...as Condi did Shatner...and have the same thing happen.

Ms Rice is suffering the disadvantage of being in a high profile job which draws an unusual amount of attention to her emotional acting out of her pain, that's all. You can see the tension in her face and body language. This lady has had her heart badly bruised!

Now, in William Shatner's defence, I only want to say that he was under severe pressure at the time and was very busy, since Stevie Nicks was also interested in him at that very same time! What could he do? He's human, after all. (Unlike Spock.) He can only handle so much at any given time. He opted for Stevie, and that was that.

It's most unfortunate, really. Given better timing, things could have worked out for Condi and Shatner, and she would not now be lying to the American people and Congress.

But...that's the way the cookie crumbles.

So, give her a break, eh? ;-)

First of all, Dougie, I know my way around a dojo, so neither House Negro Condi of House Negro Colin scare me in the slightest. If either ot both of 'um make a move toward me you'll be helping them up off the floor. No brag. Just fact.

Secondly, if they were standing right here, right now in front of me, yeah, I'd confront 'um. They are House Negros. Study a little "History of the South". I took it in college. And that was in Richmond, Va., the capitol of the Confederacy. C & C are very much House Negros in that they do the massa's bidding... They are not folks in power but probably less powerful than the average guy on the street since they have both sold out to whitey...

That's what House Negros do...

Bruce,

I have shared that by virtue of my socialization, I do consider Condi {or anyone's} race and gender might be a greater or lesser factor in how she and other's see herself [her or anyone else' group identity.}

That is not how I want it to be.But I think it is how it is at this point in time. And all over the world more and more people are rising above things that limit them and determine who they are close to or have most in common with -things like race and ethnicity, and gender and nationality. The Internet is one way this is coming to pass. And I say this is all good.

However, that does not mean that we have reached the time when race and ethnicity -and gender- are unimportant descriptors to the majority of people. I think that they still exert an influence.
Apparently, you don't.

That notwithstanding, we both agree that Condi is a less than admirable person [which is the understatement of the century].

You said that you 'don't want to qualify her as a less-than-admirable-Black person of the female gender.'

I'm not asking YOU to do that. However I stand by my statement.

I would be greatly disappointed-and greatly limit myself-if I thought that everyone on Mudcat and everyone in the world has to think EXACTLY the same in order to be courteous and even friends with each other.

It seems to me it's HOW people disagree that is important [and yes sometimes it's WHAT they disagree about].

But as it seems you've already realized, I agree with your basic position about Condi Rice.

And, Bruce, sorry but I don't know what "ISFAIAC" means.

You're not silly at all, Azizi.

I think it's possible that Ms. Rice tells herself (so as to perhaps sleep better at night) that she is helping people with backgrounds similar to hers by getting into the positions of power she has been holding and that she holds now... that by getting into these positions, she is helping to raise the glass ceiling for such people.    At least I think that when I'm feeling generous.

On the other hand, I am reminded of something a guy said to Michael Moore in F. 9/11. Moore was being assisted by an African American serviceman (I believe he was a Marine). This man had already served one tour of duty in the Middle East. The military wanted to send him back there, but he refused to go, saying, "I refuse to go back over there and kill other poor people". He may have stood to gain something by going back (or he probably had something to lose by not going back), but his sense of honor and of right and wrong superceded his sense of self-interest. I have a lot of respect for that man, and maybe that is the sentiment that Azizi and dianavan are trying to get across as being missing from their estimation of C. Rice.

Because you sincerely asked, here is my response:

I believe that people have a personal identity and group identities. The personal identity is the person's name and physical characteristics as well as his/her interests & aptitudes [for instance John Doe is a man who is good at football}

The group identity includes the person's immediate family, extended family, region, state, nation, And group identity also refers to the person's ethnicity and race.. All of these identities may influence each other. Some may be more important to the person at any given time. And some may take on tremendous importance rightly or wrongly throughout the person's entire life. [for instance John Doe's great-great grandfather was the founding father of a particular town, and owned the town's only insdustry..John Doe is British and can trace his ancestry to the Duke of So and So..} John Doe's attitude toward himself will be influenced by all of this and by how people treat him because of these things.

With regard to Condi Rice, I believe that she has been largely shaped by the choices she made-Free will. Yet I do believe that to some greater or lesser extent she has been influenced by her race and her gender-and peoples reactions and responses to them.

I believe Condi is a politician who has turned her back on THE GOOD.
I think that she is part of one of the most repressive administrations in US history- one that is doing so much harm to the world-and not just in the Middle East. I believe that her race and gender has less to do with Condi's actions than her self-interest and lust for power. Yet I also believe that she has turned her back on the oppressed people of the world-and a great many of those oppressed people are people of color.

I was raised with the-admittedly simplistic and unrealistic view-that all African Americans were family. And family members were supposed to offer aid and comfort and a helping hand to other family members..I might add that experience has been a difficult teacher for me-as I acted on this philosophy in the real world and found out that many Black people don't live by it and think nothing about stabbing anyone Black White or Green in the back and in the heart.

So that is why I'm doubly disappointed in Condi Rice [and maybe triply disappointed since she is a woman as I am, but I wasn't raised with to have the expectation that women would help each other- I was raised with that tenet about Black peopel.]

I guess I am the idealist here..Like Rodney King, I want everyone to get along..

I want race and ethnicity to be value-less descriptors.

And I want everyone on Mudcat to be friends regardless of the positions they take on controversial issues.

Silly me.

I don't know that I idealize the world. I simply refuse to factor Condi's race into the equation, that's all. I won't factor her gender in, either. That kinda thing just sounds like excuses to me. I am unclear as to where you stand with regard to C. Rice. First she's a sista sista, is that right? But wait--then isn't she a sista sista working for herself? And doesn't that then make her a Condi Condi instead?

It is the height of racism to assume that because Condi is Sec. of State and black that she is immune to criticism.

She lies. She is supporting the most ruthless regime in the history of American politics by the Bushnik Neocon cult.

Seymour Hersh of the New Yorker magazine has much to say about the state of our government, the lack of news media reportage, the total inability of those who dissent to even be tolerated by the Bushniks, the lockstep followers of the Neocon cult and the American public who are not privy to any decent or useful information about what is really going on in Iraq. The Baathist regime and the Nationals are so powerful there that the rate of American and Iraqi deaths are increasing exponentially each month. It was originally thought that Bush had won the war but what he didn't realize is that Baghdad was taken easilly for a reason. The guerilla warriors were fighting their war at their
convenient time, not Bush's.

Even the well-touted election has overtones of fraud and manipulation by the American Government. The well-intentioned Iraqi people are being exploited. Not many know that Allawi was a Baathist who may be pulling the rug out from the US. We know who Chalabi is and if he wins, you can be sure that the election was rigged. Even at that, how can you have an election that means anything at the point of a gun?

Bush doesn't care about the bodybags and the brain damaged.
The real amount of American casualties are unreported by the press. And we don't know the extent of the torture or the war crimes committed against innocent women and children either.
You're not going to find that in the US papers or media.

Do you honestly think that Condi or Bush will make a dent in the policies toward Iraq of the US former allies? They will be all too glad to see the dollar devalued and watch for the next step...
petro-Euros.

Condi is a symbol for all of this and she is being used by the Bushniks but doesn't know it.

To Ebbie and Brucie, both well meaning folks I'm sure:

IMNSHO,

your hearts are in the right place...

I would prefer the world
to be as you idealize it..
but it ain't necessarily so.

And having said that I am DONE with discussion of the whys and wherefores of a woman I never met don't want to meet don't like don't approve of definitely don't respect as a human being a woman a smart woman a powerful woman a black woman ...If I could I would disown her from the dues playing club of sista sistas world wide, incorporated whose members know who they are and most others do too and yes she still is considered a sista sista by me and others since its a club you're born into-though some refuse to use their membership to othrs benefit and some who were not born as members have been known to have been granted membership otherwise-maybe some of you reading this- for services rendered to the greater all encompassing cause of one people IRREGARDLESS with truth and justice for all.

Best wishes,
and yours in friendship

Azizi

"Maybe you should get to know her before you pass judgment and make accusations about what she feels"
An excellent point Martin, what a pity you don't take your own advice.

To all the White people who may be wearing rose colored
glasses as they work to make the world a place where
race & ethnicity truly will become valueless descriptions-
thanks for your idealized view of what the world is.
But because you are not a person of color living in a world
that still devalues people of color because of their group identities, please don't think you know what I or other
people of color think or feel.

Needless to say you can speculate all you wish,
but in this instance white is not necessarily right.

And what kind of role model did Shirley Chisholm serve as? No neo-con, she. I repeat: Condoleeza Rice is a bright woman who has gone far- in the wrong direction. And it is because she has serious lacks inside herself, not because she is black.

I will try to explain this again.

The problem with Condi being a black woman in a position of power and authority is that the model she provides to others is that the only way to get there is to serve the Neo Con agenda. It makes no difference to the White majority if she is Black or White but to women of colour she is a big disappointment. In other words, the only way to rise to the top is to kiss butt and deny your cultural heritage.

Condi is a bright woman who could have used her brains to serve the people but she has chosen to serve the Master.

This is a common problem for minority peoples. Once you are educated, your assimilation is so complete that you have more in common with the oppressive, ruling class than you do with your own people.

If Condi were White, would most people have difficulty perceiving her to be a Neocon mouthpiece pandering to the Washington leadership? Spouting the Party Line? I doubt it. Her colour has little to do with her seeming dishonesty, IMO.

Smarten up? See, I still see noting that she is black as being beside the point. If being black is part of the equation, I think that's an admirable part. It's not easy having to prove oneself every step of the way. It's difficult to do when one is a woman; being a black woman has to be harder.

Colin Powell is black but I don't know how hard it was for him, as a man, to make it to the top. I should think that the part that was hard for him as a black man was proving himself in the military, rather than in politics.

Nope. I think Condoleeza Rice's problem is not her blackness; it is something that she lacks inside herself. Much like her boss.

I don't consider Condi a "token Negro" but very much a "house Negro", much like the black folk who lived in massa's house and did massa's biddin'... These folks were the cruelest folks on the plantations... Yeah, some of you may remember them as "overseers" and that is what they were called in those days. They were probably good people who were turned bad... I don't know... But they were no friend of the slaves, that much is fir certain...

I consider Condi squarely in the "house Negro" category. No racism here... Just fact... Condi Rice would be no safer in some of the nieghborhoods I know down in D.C. than Bush, Boss Hog or George Wallace, fir that matter...
