Black Women’s Group Seeks to Support Susan Rice for Secretary of State

Post By RelatedRelated Post

For some, the politics of race trumps all other forms of politics when it comes to choosing who is going to lead the nation.  This rule may apply whether you’re referring to Republicans who can’t stand President Obama for being black or for those who support all of the president’s policies because they feel he is one of them.

The possible appointment of Susan Rice as Secretary of State has reignited strong racial conversation, with both sides either attacking or defending her with reckless abandon.  One group, “The Black Women’s Political Action” group is trying to get support from the public for Rice’s appointment.  Rice has been under attack since the attack on the US consulate in Benghazi and has been stuck in the cross-hairs of the Republican Party ever since.

According to Afro.com: 

Ambassador Susan Rice has been criticized by Republicans for providing incorrect information in the wake of the attack, which killed Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens and three other Americans.

Rice appeared on several major talk shows on Sept. 16 and, according to The New York Times, used information provided by the CIA to say that the attacks were a “spontaneous reaction” to an anti-Muslim video which had surfaced on the Internet. Subsequent analysis of the attack found that the assault appeared to have been premeditated, putting Rice at the center of what critics said was an attempt by the White House to mislead the public.

“Once again, we find ourselves in the position to stand boldly against the forces in our government that would challenge the impeccable credentials of one of the most outstanding, qualified leaders in foreign policy in our land,” Dezie Woods-Jones, California state president of the BWOPA said in a statement. “Ambassador Rice—who has demonstrated throughout her career in both the public and private sector her commitment to international peace and the equality of all people—should be honored for her dedication and service and not summarily dismissed by those that seek political gain.”

  1. Please, sign the petition.

    • Not sure which peition site they're using, but it's cumbersome and not very user friendly. I suggest they find another site for online petitions if they want people to sign because that site is not very good if they want a high number of people to sign the peition.

  2. I SUPPORT SUSAN RICE. THEY ARE SCARED THAT SHE WILL BE IN LINE FOR THE PRESIDENCY. TAKE A HIKE MCCAIN AND ALL YOUOTHER RACIST. THERE IS A GOD THAT SITS HIGH AND LOOKS LOW. THY WILL BE DONE ON EARTH AS IT IS IN HEAVEN.

    • Those two White male sissies John McCain and Lindsey Graham feel they can defeat a “girl,” so they go after Rice, especially when it’s a person of “color.” They would go after Hillary too, but not as aggressively as a woman of color.

      At least our Black man Oboma “gets it.” Oboma will do his best to protect us Black women against whatever–at least he has two Black daughters. Yes, we can count on Oboma to publicly “respect” us as Black women. Unlike some of the Black males who post on this site (You Derrick) who refer to Black women as “hoes and bitches.” You need to deal with your male slave “baggage.” So sad of you.

  3. Ladies;

    Believe are not. There are a lot of Black men who do not support her, as well as, black women. Blacks are so use to having the white man over them, until they disapprove of anyone black who has authority. I am supporting Rice. If you want to hear negative comments about susan rice, tune into GW on the Hill at 4pm mon-fri sirus 128 or you can listen on line.

  4. Most Black men are so scare of the White man until he will do anything to appease him as well as disrespect Black women. You see, Black men because of their inability to support and protect Black women, they have a disdain for Black women. The white man is not threaten by them that is why they are not afraid to kill or imprison black men. They are the weak link in our race. They were never capable of protecting their women and children. The reason they date white women is because they don’t have to protect her and they can feel superior to the black woman. Ladies I would not waste my time praising cowardly black mem.
