An addendum to Darleen’s previous post, re: racism and Susan Rice, performed as a series of leading questions
Hey. Can anybody here remember the US ever having a black female Secretary of State? Has such a woman of color ever existed? And if so, was she ever criticized or attacked — or is it the case that such an onslaught, had it hypothetically occurred, was met with cries of racism and misogyny!, then followed on by a fierce protection of this unfairly beleaguered (weak) creature by the very people who are today invested in protecting Susan Rice from having to answer for mistakes that (goes the essence of the argument) are only considered mistakes because they were made by a woman of color, not because the mistakes themselves have any kind of empirical existence outside the sexual and racial identity from which they flowed, or outside the sexual and racial identity of those wishing her to answer for them?
Just wondering. If anybody knows of such a set of circumstances. Like maybe an historian or some such.
