Reporters want people to believe that racism is worse than ever under President Donald Trump and former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice isn’t having it.
According to Sista Toldja on Thursday, during an interview on NBC’s “Today” show on Thursday, NBC News’ Sheinelle Jones tried to push onto Rice the idea that “there are people who will say it feels worse now when we’re talking about race” and that Trump was fostering a “divisive environment.”
Rice shot that narrative down with all the force of an anti-air missile.

Rice is no stranger to tossing this kind of narrative in the trash. According to the Daily Wire, Rice has run into several situations where she’s had to demolish narratives, such as the idea that black people have to swing left:
In May 2018, Rice was also asked about race and politics, this time in the context of rapper and fashion designer Kanye West being lampooned by the media for throwing his support behind President Trump.
“As a successful woman of color out there, when you see Kanye West talking like this and getting the pushback that he is, what do you think?” asked host Maria Bartiromo on “Mornings with Maria.”
“Well, my view of it — first of all, I haven’t spent a lot of time thinking about it, but I can say that people should be able to express their views. Not all of us have to think politically the same way,” said Rice.
“I’ve said to people sometimes, ‘I’ve been black all my life. You don’t have to tell me how to be black,’” she continued. “So I think we need to recognize that in some ways the height of prejudice is to look at somebody and think you know what they think because of the color of their skin.”
Racism comes in many forms and believing that a person must think a certain way due to their skin color is very racist. It’s a problem that the Democrat party runs up against quite often, with black Republicans often being referred to by derogatory names such as “Uncle Tom,” or being told they’re not black enough.
Rice is a perfect example of what it is to break away from that kind of thinking and recognize realities. When it comes to race relations, things have never been better, despite what the social justice community wants you to believe, or the racism they themselves commit.
While history can’t be changed, Americans have made great strides in rectifying things, and while there are still problems, many of the problems stem from widespread ignorance thanks to a media that’s only too happy to push narratives that help keep Democrats in power. If these narratives were to disappear tomorrow, and the finger pointing and blaming of others stopped, then we’d really start to see change.
However, so long as there’s power to be gained from turning races against each other, you can bet Democrats and its media will continue to whisper in the ears of anyone who will listen.
