Condoleezza Rice Has a New Career

Former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice has acquired a job as a contributor for CBS News.

.

It appears as if former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice’s dream career of becoming an NFL Commissioner is still at bay while she pursues other opportunities. Rice has acquired a new career as a CBS News correspondent. She made her debut on “Face the Nation” on Sunday and will be included on inauguration coverage on Monday.

The announcement was made on Sunday by president David Rhodes and chair Jeff Fager. The men believe Rice “will use her insight and vast experience to explore issues facing America at home and abroad.”

Many speculate this is one of many forthcoming attempts for CBS News to acquire a stronger viewership from the African-American community. MSNBC acquired a 20 percent boost in 2012 viewership after placing more African-American public figures such as, Touré, Melissa Harris-Perry, Rev. Al Sharpton, and many other prominent members of the Black Community on their network. The network’s African-American viewership was a whopping 60.5 percent. The network’s president, Phil Griffith, released a statement explaining the decision to hire more people of color in 2012: “We have a diverse on-air group of people, because that matters, and people want to know that we reflect their world. And it’s not just a single show – it’s across the board. You look at the guests every hour and we make sure that we have women, African Americans, everything, and I think to spend a day watching MSNBC is to see America as we have seen it.”

  1. She certainly brings a wealth of knowledge to the position, and she’s articulate enough to communicate the issues, but it remains to be seen how this will translate into increase viewers.

  2. May I start by saying that the term ‘people of color’ is stupid? I will stick with black and brown people. If you are offended, then tough.
    Good for Condoleeza. I admire her immensely, although I do not agree with her politics entirely.

    • I DON’T BEGRUDGE DEBORAH’S COMMENT AT ALL… about killing the phrase ‘people of color’, especially WHEN IT COMES TO TALKING ABOUT “YOUR” MARKET, “YOUR BREAD AND BUTTER”. WITHOUT A MARKET CBS NEWS DON’T EAT. TRY AND REMEMBER THAT. BY NOT CALLING THEIR NEW MARKET “AMERICANS WE HAVE BY-PASSED IN THE PAST BUT WE WILL NO MORE…”, BY INSTEAD DEHUMANIZING FURTHER WITH SKIN-TONE EPITHETS BECAUSE OF THEIR SKIN SHADE (IT’S ALL THE SAME SKIN, BY THE WAY) …BUT I FIND NO COMFORT AT ALL IN BRINGING UP ‘brown or black’, MS. RICE SKIN-TONE IS IN A WORD “IRREVELENT” BECAUSE THAT YOUNG WOMAN HAS PAID ALMOST THE ULTIMATE PRICE FOR HER POSITION IN AMERICAN SOCIETY SUCH AS IT IS. [THE ULTIMATE PRICE WOULD BE A WAR CASUALITY, OF COURSE.} [AND DITTO FOR BARACK & MICHELLE OBAMA. THESE PEOPLE HAVE ACCOMPLISHED FAR MORE IN LIFE THAN THEIR SKIN TONE OR HAIR TEXTURE. SO...IT'S TIME TO PUT DOWN THE "RACISTS SLURS" ON THE Q-TEE--"PEOPLE OF COLOR" IS STILL A RACISTS SLUR AND PLEASE DON'T SAY "MINORITY" TO ME--EVEN AT MY AGE I WILL STILL GO OFF; I AM JUST INCENSED WHEN I HEAR THAT WORD. HOW CAN I, A VETERAN, BE A MINORITY TO SOMEBODY, TO ANYBODY ESPECIALLY PEOPLE WHO HAVE NOT SERVED!

      AMERICANS ARE THE GARDEN-VARIETY THAT NATURE PRODUCES: WE ARE MULTICOLORED, MULTICULTURED, AND MULTIPLEXED ETHNICALLY. Ms. RICE HAS DONE WHAT ANY TOP-RUNNING SOCALLED 'WHITE' WOMEN PROFESSIONALS WILL DO, HAVE DONE, IS DOING, TO GAIN PROMINENCE. SHE IS AN AMERICAN; WHY DOES SHE HAVE TO BE KNOWN TO HER EMPLOYERS AS A 'BLACK' WOMAN OR BLACK-SKIN-TONED-WOMAN-OF-COLOR? ESP. WHEN HER CULTURE IS OBVIOUSLY NOT WHOLLY "BLACK". THE "BLACK" EXTANT ETHNICITY IN AMERICA WAS/IS A/THE "MILITANT" COUNTERPART TO A PASSIVISM (THAT WAS CAREFULLY AGGRESSIVE) THAT MLK CREATED AND CARRIED OUT. BUT SOME 'BLACK' ETHNIC PEOPLE ARE AFRAID TO LET GO OF THE SKIN COLOR-THANG-THANG, OR EVEN THE N-WORD; BUT OBVIOUSLY SOME AFRRICAN AMERICANS HAVE MOVED ON AND ARE MOVING ON TO THE "TOP DRAWERS". THEY ARE AS CAPABLE AS ANYONE ELSE ON THAT TREK. (I'M PLAIN SICK OF IT AND BORED WITH IT MYSELF...BUT WAIT...I DO UNDERSTAND "ETHNICITY" ["RACE" WAS ALWAYS AN UNINTELLIGENT CONCEPT] BUT NO “ETHNICITY” CAN BE ANY GROUP WITH A SHARED IDENTITY; IT CAN BE A COMPUTER GROUP OF PROFESSIONALS THAT HAVE THEIR OWN CREED AND CODE.

      One last word on this and then no more, I promise. Our “beloved” BO came on American’s centerstage with all his intelligence and ability and first tried to be the AfricanAmerican Moses, if you will. He tried to tell you where the promise land was for his generation and beyond. He tried to tell you to let go and let the old folks die with their racist ways. Shut the door on racism Obama said but no, the folks held on to their ‘blackness’, their skin color identity and ignored the ‘battle’ call to become an American. Just an American through and through. That’s how Condi feels inside I’m sure. She has not forgotton where she came from; she just remembers that the big gigantum price was not paid for her in vain; that’s likely how she thinks: She is making sure that the big price was not paid in vain but she is certainly not going to live where she was (or from) now in today’s world when she was/is capable of performing as the Secretary of State of the Free World. So. You say the proverbial response: “Condi is still black. She is still dark.” Well, when they call Ms. Rice forth to join the Congress For Humaness, or Secretary of the United Nations, only (some) American ‘blacks’ will still refer to her by her skin shadebut others will just see her as Ms. Rice, a woman how can perform at the level required. WHY? Because most of the world has people in their population that is all shades of skin. GIVE IT UP. MOVE ON. MAKE YOUR DREAMS COME TRUE. IF NOTHING ELSE RAISE A WONDERFUL AMERICAN FAMILY WITH DARK COMPLEXIONS, IF YOU MUST SAY THAT, FOR THE FUTURE. AMERICA NEEDS THEM NOW AND WILL NEED THEM THEN. “THANK YOU FOR THIS OPPORTUNITY TO EXPRESS.]

  3. I wish her well since the GOP has no futher use for her.

  4. Condoleezza Rice is just like any other negroid, who works on the white boy’s plantation…you do what you are told…plain & simple! She got paid millions, while working for the government, but other government workers (slaves) are only paid thousands!!! And, you know, who they are.

    To be honest about the matter, what would you do? What can you do when somebody CONTROLS you, and pays you a check? YOU MUST DANCE TO THEIR MUSIC!!! Anytime you slave (work) on the white boy’s plantation, you still have to go buy his rules!!! Regardless, if you work a 9 to 5 or shift work…YOU ARE STILL A SLAVE!!!

    These political gangster caucasoids OWN oil companies, banks, and even some of y’all’s minds, but nobody says anythang. They do more dirt, than a city dump, but y’all negroids are scared to SPEAK UP and talk about these heathens.

    We have all this economic buying power, we have all these degreed politicians, we have all these big time screachas, we have all these Black teachers, we have all these Black doctors, lawyers, and judges, but Black people still don’t OWN a da.mn franchise nation wide!!!

    HOW COME PEOPLE LIKE RICE AND COLIN POWELL, CAN’T GO TO A BLACK CHURCH OR ORGANIZATION, AND ‘TEACH’ OUR CHILDREN!!! THEY NO LONGER HAVE CHAINS AROUND THEIR NECKS, IT’S TIME TO PUT THOSE DEGREES, KNOWLEDGE, WISDOM AND EXPERIENCE TO USE, TO HELP OUR CHILDREN AND ADULTS!!!

    We could build our OWN schools, and be taught by people, that look like us, and love us. This is the ONLY way our children are going to prosper and learn…WE MUST TEACH THEM OURSELVES!!!

    I KNOW I WOULD!!!

    • Brother Derrick—- since the Enslaver killed, murdered, assassinated, and silenced the well known,and the unknown Black Men and Women in america- there has been some reluctance on the behalf of Black Leaders and those Blacks who have the economic wherewithal to make change happen. Yet- when your educated by the ENSLAVERS-you don’t want to stick your neck out for anything worth while that would help Black folk. The fear of being dealt with by the Enslaver is so server – (live on your knees or die)- the negros who have the means to make change- settles for the trinkets and the honor of being accepted by the ENSLAVER.

  5. I have the utmost respect for Rev. Al Sharpton, Melissa Harris-Perry and Toure. I have NO respect for Condi. She has credentials, but is clueless when it comes to mainstream African-American issues.

  6. Is it just me? But I think the storyline on ‘scandal’ is loosely based on Condi and Bush. Remember when Hillary said George ran the white house like a plantation. Everybody took this to mean he was acting like massa in the basic sense. I remember Paul Mooney said read between the lines, she meant him sleeping with Condi. Slave massa with the slave girl. I don’t know for a fact if they were gettin it on, but it does make you think. Hmmmm

    • GREAT OBSERVATION!!!

      I never would’ve thought about that scenario because I don’t look at bullshyt like ‘scandal’!!! But, I believe you are RIGHT!

      Keep posting that Truth!!!

  7. I question the wisdom of anyone accepting a position with CBS. They treat their employees like c**p and blame them for poor ratings when it’s really the ones at the top who ought to resign since there’s no one to fire them. Maybe then they’ll have better ratings.

  8. Condi, Condi, Condi…what will we do with Condi!!

    Well I guess she’s doing whats expected of someone who has served and contributed to keeping the system afloat.

    Condi I hope you do well, just don’t rub the wrong persons the wrong way in there as the consequences for doing so are no different from what Black folk generally experience when they fall out of luck with ‘higher-ups’ in the corporate world…I’m sure you wouldn’t want to associate with, or lower yourself to such conventional misfortune and debauchery huh Condi?!? ;-)

    • Her name is CONDOLEEZZA, not condi!!!

      Do you hear yankees chopping up the names of caucasoids?

      Did you hear those yankees call Madeleine Albright…Maddy?

      Do you hear crackers calling Hillary Clinton…Hilly?

      Her name is CONDOLEEZZA…remember that, okay ‘trav’!!!

  9. Aunt Thomasina needs to fix her grill….

  10. she is still tap dancing

  11. Yeah, I’m not a fan of hers. They have gone after Hillary and Susan Rice like crazy but Condoleezza gets a pass. Powell has apologized over and over about the misinformation about weapons of mass destruction, but C. Rice acts like all those deaths are just collateral damage on way to her career goals. She gave the same stupid government answer at the 9/11 commission. Her father taught her well while criticizing Fred Shuttlesworth and the other civil rights leaders.
