Scary Black Lady Susan Rice Once Said That White Children Should Be Forced To Learn Of Blacks’ Existence

by Doktor Zoom

Why do the blacks have their own history? What's next, black math? Haw! Haw! Haw!In an article that proves conclusively that U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice is, in fact, the scariest Black Power Radical who ever scared a white person on the internet (at least since that one terrifying door-opening man in Philadelphia on election day), the Daily Caller has a bombshell exposé that tears the lid off Rice’s involvement in writing a 1986 book that advocated a radical socialist agenda to teach black history in our nation’s schools. Even to white children!!!! Seriously, that’s in the actual headline: “Susan Rice in 1986 book: Make white students learn black history”

Sure. Go ahead and shock us, Daily Caller guy Charles C. Johnson!

In a 1986 book by U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Susan Rice, the future diplomat argued for the aggressive inclusion of a black history curriculum in American schools, claiming that its omission had “crippling effects” by “providing a child with no more than … a white interpretation of reality.”

The 86-page book, “A History Deferred,” served as a guide for secondary and elementary school teachers wanting to teach “Black Studies,” and was published by the Black Student Fund, an advocacy group where Rice had an internship.

Oh. My. God. There is a thing called “Black Studies.” Put that inside scare quotes, so as to protect the children! What is this world coming to?

So, besides the utterly unproveable assertion that American History is usually taught from a white perspective (which it is not — it is simply taught from an American perspective), what other shocking views did the probable nominee for Secretary of State have when she was 22 years old?

  • Rice noted in her book’s foreword [that] most students were “taught American history, literature, art, drama, and music largely from a white, western European perspective. As a result, their grasp of the truth, of reality, is tainted by a myopia of sorts.”

    “American history cannot be understood fully or evaluated critically without ample study of Black history,” Rice added.

  • “Ultimately, what is more important than the white or majority perception of black Americans is the black man, woman, and child’s perception of themselves,” Rice wrote. “The greatest evil in omitting or misrepresenting Black history, literature, and culture in elementary or secondary education is the unmistakable message it sends to the black child. The message is ‘your history, your culture, your language and your literature are insignificant. And so are you.’”

Wow! 86 pages, and those are the most incendiary things Charles C. Johnson could find? It’s far less shocking and rage-filled than just about anything you might pick at random from Soul on Ice, including the punctuation.

Still, Charles C. Johnson is a guy who managed to describe as “Orwellian” a 1997 proposal that would “[permit] everyone in Illinois to obtain decent health care on a regular basis by 2002,” so there just has to be something outrageous about Rice’s writing as a student intern. Maybe there’s a way he can simultaneously suggest that Rice’s call for “Afrocentric” education — a term she apparently didn’t actually use, or god knows Johnson would have quoted it — is both unnecessary and maybe even disgustingly hypocritical?

Despite lacking an Afrocentric curriculum at the tony National Cathedral School for Girls in Washington, D.C., Rice’s options were many and impressive.

Is this Obama's terrifying plan for a US Track And Field Army?Boom! The blacks can do pretty well for themselves, can’t they? Also, how dare Susan Rice pretend to share the experience of downtrodden urban blacks (who are mostly moochers on the welfare).

We think they are kind of weird about black people over at The Daily Caller. It’s all just so strangely retro, like they’re still scared of Black Power and the rest of America is like, “Oh, hi, it is not 1968. Did you maybe miss that?”

Does Tucker's Daily Pot Pie exist only to be the subject of ridicule such as this?

Signs point to yes.

Charles C. Johnson is a guy who managed to describe as “Orwellian” a 1997 proposal that would “[permit] everyone in Illinois to obtain decent health care on a regular basis by 2002,”

Even Orwell, who lived his whole life in socialized-medicine-polluted England, would describe this as "Orwellian." Or maybe "Obamian."

Doktor Zoom December 1, 2012 at 2:47 pm

Point of Order: Britain's NHS was instituted in 1948, and Orwell died in 1950. Needless to say, as a good old-line socialist he would not have considered it a precursor to Stalinism.

(But he would have, if he'd lived longer under its horrors! [/teabag])

Wile E. Quixote December 1, 2012 at 11:50 pm

Point of Order: Britain however passed the National Insurance Act in 1911, which required all workers making under £160 a year were required to pay 4 pence a week into the scheme, employers were required to pay 3 pence a week and general taxation paid two pence. This is obviously an early forerunner of Obamacare and is also obviously responsible for the decline and fall of the British Empire.

National Insurance Act of 1911

Doktor Zoom December 2, 2012 at 12:54 am

Point of Ordure: I did not know that! Cool beans! Those Brits were in moral decline long before I thought they were, then.

If they had paid me right, I'd have made up a *CliffNotes version that they could read in less time than it takes to strip mine a functional business leaving it a smoking hulk with a hole where the funds were held to cover the benefits set aside for retired or injured former workers.

* Nothing to do with the fiscal cliff we'll all be going over, Lemming style, or that guy Cliffy at "Cheers", either, also.

Not only is there a thing called "Black Studies" but they have a "Fund"! Horrors!!

Given the reading comprehension level of these folks, they probably read it as "fun", although they would find that equally horrifying.

ButthurtWingers2012 December 3, 2012 at 8:29 pm

Yes, pretty much…and I disagree with Doc unless he's being sarcastic by writing that history is not taught from a 'white' perspective but rather from an "American" perspective…same damn thing, Doc! That's why Custer used to be hero-worshipped, slavery was scanted (the South still thinks it was a fucking good thing for black folks while integration was terrible…) and the whole "KKK bombs, lynches and murders people" of the 1920's-64 (primarilly) was not given much thought. It's only been since American history has been revised that the "whiteness" of the old history really shows through…now we know there was for instance, black people, hispanic people and asians who actually did stuff in our country, big shock! Anyway, Susan Rice was right in her analysis and the Daily Caller constantly looks like Stormfront any time it's discussing anyone who is black and not ashamed of being black (not a black Republican in other words)

They're still reeling from election shock, but never fear, by early February if not before, one of the troglodytes will come up with precisely that accusation.

Today I "unliked" the Waylon Jennings fan page on facebook because they decided it was a good idea for (dead) Waylon to be president. Yes, I read every one of the comments – I'm not proud to admit that… anyway the rednecks there were all on board with (still dead) Waylon being in office along with (dead) Johnny Cash and (not dead but brain & soul dead) Hank Wms Jr. & Charlie Daniels. The icing on the cake was when I read the comment from the yahoo who called the POTUS a nigger.

Butch_Wagstaff December 1, 2012 at 7:29 pm

I guess it probably blow those idiots minds if they found out how popular Johnny Cash was in Jamaica.

Who is tony, and why is he at a school for girls?

ButthurtWingers2012 December 3, 2012 at 8:35 pm

Isn't that the usual conservative racist asshollery? "you weren't born in the 'hood, so you're fake!"…just goes to show how these pasty white pricks view "acceptable black people" (poor, lazy, indifferent, ignorant and on welfare…oh how they laugh when you mention that many more white people fit that description than black folks). What really bothers me about these people (okay, one of many, many things) is how they act 'genuinely' shocked when you point out how racist they really are. I mean can we form an agreement that at some point they'll just abandon their stupid act when confronted? Especially Fucker Carlson…

Oh sure — you just want to never bring up the formative event in young Barack Obama's life where he ate dog meat when he was seven years old? It's like you don't even want Mitt to win this election.

Mitt who?

ButthurtWingers2012 December 3, 2012 at 8:42 pm

Exactly….and they do this lil' act time and again. What makes it funny is when it gets done back to them then they are all "oh, all the nerve!" It makes it almost worth it to sit through this banal shit so we can embarass some dumbassed wingnut 'superstar' with evidence of exorcisms (Jindal), or fucking Glen Rice and going into a racist tizzy over it (guess who) or being a bully who pinned a weaker kid down and cut his hair (RMoney…that's still the gayest thing I've heard of being done to bully a gay kid outside the usual rape…because they aren't gay and hate gay people of course). Or how Glenn Beck raped and murdered a girl sometime in 1989…when is someone going to finally confront him over this?

sundaytrucker December 1, 2012 at 10:16 am

Wait…you mean blacks weren't invented in the 80's? So how come I never saw them on TV before that?

kittensdontlie December 1, 2012 at 10:59 am

During the 70's, they eschewed use of the auto, instead traveling by the lesser known Soul Train.

Dashboard Buddha December 1, 2012 at 11:30 am

Oh you saw them on tv before that…like those hot summer days in Alabama where the police so kindly turned fire hoses on black people that were just melting from the heat…they also brought their dogs out to play because they thought that poor blacks couldn't afford pets of their own.

tessiee December 1, 2012 at 4:35 pm

The love and affection white people of western European descent have showered on those of African ancestory in the 19th and 20th century, those of direct Japanese descent during World War II and on those of Spanish origin today is but slghtly removed from the love Nazis shared with the Jews. Hell yes it should be taught in schools to all students, and I am as western Europen white as it gets.

"BarcaLounger of Ignorance" is just so perfect: You can almost imagine a pair of them in every winger living room in front of the 55 inch plasma screen with Hannity or some other half-wit on FNC.

Palin fought back against the idea that Rice is being targeted because of her race or gender, and criticized the media for “going right along” with the Democratic narrative on what happened and ignoring a serious scandal.

When a woman, who's national Party operatives descended into Alaska as the "Truth Squad" to white wash her creosete blackend First Dude erected fence – and used the State's communications arm to encourage citizens to incur a backlash against ethics filers says the Lamestream Media should get on her good side and investigate Rice and Benghazi to her satisfaction. . .then I don't know which part of America Michelle Obama should be proud of.

When the Australian died a couple of years ago, either Smith or Carlos (or maybe both) flew over there to be a pallbearer at his funeral. Lot of respect between all three of them after 1968.

I think Australia's government just apologized for the criticism he received back home for that move.

I agree. I met Tommie Smith when he was a student at San Jose State. He lived next door to my friend. The thing I remember most is how Tommie's living room was jam packed with trophies.
Having said that, I think Susan Rice is one scary woman. It has nothing to do with her race or gender, but rather her stern demeanor and her affiliations, for example the Council on Foreign Relations.

Oh the horror, learning about slavery and racism. Jeez, it might make otherwise good non mooching white people feel empathy and lead to some understanding about race relations in US Amercia.

Next thing you'll know, Susan Rice will demand that black people be cast on TV shows. And if that continues then those uppity Latinos and Asians might feel the same way and demand to be on TV too taking away jobs from white actors like Lindsay Lohan.

Black History Primer for Honkeys:

6000 BC: Allah creates people in Africa. Much like Hip-Hop, it doesn't become popular until Crackers learn how to make a buck off of it.

6000BC to 1776 AD: Nothing happens.

1849 AD: Despite being born a slave, Harriet Tubman starts her own railroad.

1865 AD: White people free the slaves. You're welcome.

1896 AD: Despite being born a slave, George Washington Skippy Jiff Carver invents peanut butter.

1897 AD: Despite being born a slave, George Washington Skippy Jiff Carver gets some of his sexual chocolate in his peanut butter. Invents the Reese's.

1965 AD: Martin Luther King too busy dreaming about mountain tops and shit, so white people pass the Civil Rights Act. You're welcome.

1969 AD: Tyler Perry born.

1981 AD: Gimme a Break! premieres, fulfilling Dr. King's dream that someday black people can play maids on TV.

2008 AD: Despite being born a slave in Kenya, Barack Pol Pot Hitler Karl Marx Obama steals Presidential election. Racism ends.

FeloniousMonk December 1, 2012 at 6:26 pm

Depends who you believe. Nightfall preceding Sunday, October 23, 4004 BC according to Ussher. It's 3929 for John Lightfoot, 3761 for Jose ben Halafta, 3952 for The Venomous Bede, 3949 for Joseph Scaliger, and 3992 for Kepler. I think Nate Silver should figure out how to weight these estimates.

Wile E. Quixote December 1, 2012 at 3:37 pm

God Almighty, the Daily Caller is a rag. How does Tucker Carlson show his face in public?

You really have to wonder. I mean here is little Little Tucker Carlson, who has all of this money and all of these advantages (and whose father was once president of the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, I shit you not, it's in Wikipedia). Little Tucker Carlson is the ultimate example of wingnut welfare. His stepmommy is an heiress of the Swanson food conglomerate, he goes to an exclusive private boarding school, St. George's and then to an expensive liberal arts college (Trinity College of Connecticut) and probably because he couldn't get into a state school) and then doesn't get a degree. But here's the thing, he doesn't have to! He's on the wingnut welfare plan, he gets a job at Policy Review, the Heritage Foundation's wingnut organ (heh, wingnut organ, Chet Kincaid said it first.). He then gets a job at the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette and then leaps to another wingnut organ, The Weakly Standard.

Little Tucker then gets a job at CNN (the "C" in CNN really stands for "conservative") and also his own show on PBS. Little Tucker's CNN gig ends in 2005 after Jon Stewart totally pwns his ass in what has got to be one of the most famous episodes of pwnage ever. Other people who weren't on the wingnut welfare gravy train would have been fucked at this point, but not Little Tucker. Little Tucker got a job at MSNBC, and despite the fact that his show's ratings were dismal managed to last three seasons. But eventually his shit ratings on MSNBC caused him to flame out and he ended up at Faux News. But being at Faux News wasn't enough for Little T, he's an ambitious boy, he also undertook to go on a regular tour of the wingnut rubber chicken circuit and create his own news site, The Daily Caller, for people who needed a massive fix of rabid, wingnut bullshit but find Wingnut News Daily rather a bit too dèclasse.

You have to wonder how wingnuts like Matt Drudge and Erick Erickson feel about preppies like Carlson and vice-versa. Carlson got his job as token wingnut on CNN based upon all of his family's money and media connections. Erickson put together Red State and managed to get so many batshit insane frothing wingnuts paying attention to him that someone at CNN said "Damnit, we need someone from the fetid swamps where the right-wing lumpenintelligentsia live who can appeal to the batshit insane frothing wingnut demographic but who won't shit all over the furniture like Michael Savage does. Can we get Erickson? I like the cut of his gibberish." Drudge did the same thing as Erickson, pulling himself by his bootstraps, such as they are, and built the Drudge Report into a mighty wingnut organ (heh, wingnut organ). How much respect can those guys have for someone like Little Tucker who has had everything handed to him.

emmelemm December 1, 2012 at 3:56 pm

You somehow left out Tucker being on Dancing With The Stars.

Also, "cut of his gibberish" is pure, unadulterated genius.

Chet Kincaid_ December 1, 2012 at 5:10 pm

Well done. I find it peculiar that Tucker enjoys slumming in wingnuttery so much, as if he has no self-respect. Oh well, I guess he's "their" Anderson Cooper.

Negropolis December 1, 2012 at 10:58 pm

Two things speaking in Susan Rice's favor for Secretary of State is that Dana Milbank reports that she gave Vietnam Phoenix Program alum Richard Holbrooke the finger during a Bubba Clinton White House argument, and that she has openly said McWalnutz' foreign policy statements are reckless. Those actions give Dana a sad, but Dana folks frequently dropped him on his head as a young child, so take his tears with as many grains of salt as you require.

wow, too many ways to have fun with this. First off in 1986 she was all of 22 years of age, so hardly fair to keep calling her "UN Ambassador" or act like she had/has awesome power. Plus the "History Deferred" references "A Dream Deferred" by Langston Hughes which sounds like a bomb at the end – hence she's a terrorist too! All of which is why the Repugs are telling her (to paraphrase PT Barnum) "This way to the egress – negress!"

Oh, this "reasoning" again.

You learn about gays, you might become one.
You learn about religions other than Christianity, you might convert to one of them.
So, I guess here the fear is…what, more whites listening to Public Enemy? Defending O.J. Simpson? Unironically watching Tyler Perry movies? (Okay, in the last case it's a pretty valid fear.)

'Oh, this "reasoning" again.

Huh, when I learned about gays I became one too, maybe they're right!

Oh wait, that was just puberty hitting, never mind.

poorgradstudent December 1, 2012 at 5:24 pm

Hmm, great point. Like I suggest above, gay sex does have its perks, especially if you're a guy who mistakenly believes only women have a g-spot. As for other religions, well, speaking from experience Eid al-Fitr is pretty awesome, although I did feel terribly guilty for partaking despite the whole "not fasting during Ramadan" thing.

Obama will take international relations to a whole new level when HARPO Productions, Inc., puts world leaders on stage with Oprah where she can counsel and chat about the world's issues. This radical approach has been dubbed the O-O Project (for the first names of the President and Winfrey).

It would be nice to know about any good Dem candidates for the House that Wonketteers could support early on. These Dems who decide to run just before the filing date & then do nothing but run a few ads in late October are not likely to succeed. Early money is like yeast, right? And also non-financial support like making calls, help with web design/maintenance & social media stuff…? Wonketteers have skills & ideals- it would be nice if we could target at least one House race early enough to make a positive difference.

And we've seen more than one or two of those incumbents lose to wingnuts in the primaries. I live in a blue county in a red state, and I see that not all voters are voting by party- many are voting for the people they like best- or find more attractive.

Every state I've ever lived in defined "residency" as "where you normally live most of the time". For some folks (and not just the very rich, e.g., snowbirds) this can be ambiguous, so they let you pick one.

I've never lived in Massachusetts, so I don't know their rules, but the states I'm familiar with would frown on claiming them as your residence when you live elsewhere the great majority of the time.

As a university reference librarian, my favorite time of the year is when the black students taking Western Civ come in looking for books to do reports on, and it falls to me to explain why their curriculum doesn't consider Africa "western" even though it's directly south of Europe. (Hell if I know.) Likewise, this continent apparently only became "western" when white people stumbled upon it. They should just be honest and call it History of White Folks.

Doktor Zoom December 2, 2012 at 12:58 am

God, I love reference librarians.

cousinitt December 2, 2012 at 4:12 am

As it happens, I am a geographer by training and as I point out to my students, most of "Western" Europe lies in the "Eastern Hemisphere." Near, Middle, and Far East were likewise, spatial yardsticks based upon the view from 19th Century London and Paris. I also ask them which continent/civilization is never classified within the East vs. West spatial continuum paradigm. After some thought, many realize that Africa is that continent. Then they get it.

And no, Africa is not western or Western even now. Only a small part lies west of the Prime Meridian and by most measures of spatio-cultural nomenclature, Africa south of the Sahara and north of South Africa is by no means western. The only thing Western about sub-Saharan Africa is how Western nations have totally screwed over the people and land to an extent rivaled only by well, all other indigenous peoples of the world.

What is it about Bowie, anyway? He's skinny with bad teeth and basically looks like an albino rat — and yet, somehow, he's been consistently glamourous for at least the last 40 years.
As one of my favorite books said (not about Bowie) "feature by feature, the man's a mess. put them all together, and he's magnificent" (also true of Jimi Hendrix).

Really, any comparison between Newt and the noble races of Suidae and Salamandridae is an insult to the animals.

Greg Sargent made a similar point — that even with the pre-2010 district boundaries, most of the same incumbents would have won anyway. Even more than incumbency, though, is probably the fact that most people don't vote.

One of my favorites. I'm humming the theme song in your honor.
