Former MSNBC host, Touré Neblett, branded Condoleezza Rice a “foot soldier for white supremacy” over her opposition to Critical Race Theory (CRT).
Neblett, in a column that ran on the MSNBC division site, The Grio, late last week, blasted the former Secretary of State for promoting “white-centric” views.
“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,” he wrote.
“Her thoughts on Critical Race Theory are completely white-centric, as in, they revolve around the thoughts and needs of white people,” added Neblett.
Touré Neblett is taking issue with comments Condoleezza Rice made during a recent appearance on “The View” in which she denounced Critical Race Theory.
“I would like black kids to be completely empowered to know they are beautiful in their blackness but in order to do that I don’t have to make white kids feel bad for being white,” Rice said.
“One more thing, it goes back to how we teach the history,” Rice added. “We teach the good and we teach the bad of history.”
“What we don’t do is make 7 and 10-year-olds feel they are somehow bad people because of the color of their skin,” she concluded.
Touré Neblett’s column suggests that Condoleezza Rice is seeking to “whitewash” history by protecting the feelings of white children.
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?
Except, that’s not what she said. At all.
She literally says she wants to empower black children, not focus on denigrating white children.
What Rice is opposed to is force-feeding children in our schools a Marxist curriculum seeking to divide people between races.
And that’s exactly what CRT does – rewrite history with America as a terrible nation that promoted rather than abolished slavery.
The controversy surrounding CRT comes as Attorney General Merrick Garland recently mobilized the FBI and federal prosecutors to meet with local leaders to address parents who ‘pose a threat’ at school board meetings due to objections over CRT.
Garland’s actions come as the National School Boards Association asked for an investigation into whether or not confrontations from outraged parents are a violation of the Patriot Act, suggesting some parents’ actions “could be the equivalent to a form of domestic terrorism.”
The National School Boards Association would later backtrack on their letter accusing some parents of violence after it was revealed they had coordinated the effort with the White House.
What’s worse? Touré Neblett’s smear of Condoleezza Rice may not be the most outrageous thing you’ll see this week when it comes to CRT.
Here’s a prime example.
An op-ed in the Washington Post argues that parents have no right to shape the curriculum that their children learn in schools.
Former President Donald Trump signed an executive order in September of 2020 prohibiting federal agencies, federal contractors, and federal grant recipients from providing workplace blame-focused training such as race stereotyping.
Trump further took aim when he announced his 1776 Commission designed to promote patriotic education and push back against leftist indoctrination efforts.
“Students in our universities are inundated with critical race theory,” Trump stated at the time.
“This is a Marxist doctrine holding that America is a wicked and racist nation, that even young children are complicit in oppression, and that our entire society must be radically transformed.”
President Biden revoked the executive order on his first day in the White House.
Neblett, meanwhile, wants white children to be miserable about something that they, nor their parents, have ever taken part in – slavery.
“White children and adults should absolutely feel bad about the past atrocities committed by white Americans,” he writes. “They should feel guilty. They should cringe at what their ancestors did.”
In more recent history, Neblett was accused of sexual harassment by a co-worker in 2019.
