Susan Rice Drops Out of Running For Sec. of State Due to ‘Partisan Politics’

According to NBC News, UN Envoy Susan Rice has dropped out of the running for the position of Secretary of State.

She says the partisan politics – and particularly the GOP’s opposition to her possible nomination – that would follow her nomination would be “lengthy, disruptive and costly – to you and to our most pressing national and international priorities.”

Rice has been under fire from Republicans for her intial characterization of the Sept. 11 Beghazi attack as a spur-of-the-moment response to an anti-Muslim film.

Who Brought Colonialism to the Party?

Dedicated to the girl with the red beret. To dissing me for writing about celebrities lately.

Rumor goes that, in Chicago, they shut down the predominantly Black/Latin@ bus routes early to keep us away from the white spaces. Route 80-Ashland, Route 70-Division, just to name a couple, make it hard to experience the nightlife of the metropolis on foot patrol. Philly’s going through the same thing; they got two major train lines that call it a night a few minutes past 12. It’s the story of our lives: the free movement of our bodies causes too much of a security issue to not curb. No don’t tell me that there’s justification, because you’re gullible enough to permit these institutions to classify the crimes of a few individuals as knowledge about the lives of colored people. If this talk is real then you should know that the management of colored people in motion is embedded in a world view.
