In an interview with Fox News’ Dana Perino on her show “The Daily Briefing,” former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice addressed topics like the Iran deal, which Trump will most likely to decertify, and North Korea.
Then, Perino addressed the elephant in the room: the NFL protests.
Rice gave an honest answer, saying, “We’ve had a long history of racial injustice and trying to come to terms with it. No human society is perfect … Democracies are imperfect. You just have to keep working at them.”
“We do need to get over this controversy. Whatever the players were trying to do in drawing attention to these issues, it’s gone another way now. And that people have stopped listening to each other,” she added.
“When you want to lead on an issue, you want to bring as many people to your side as possible. So I hope the players find a way to make their concerns known, to talk about them honestly. What do you mean by social injustice? How are we going to get there? But to do it in a way that brings people to your side that doesn’t alienate people.”
The former Secretary of State also made it clear that when the national anthem plays or the flag is raised, she will be standing:
“Since I personally believe very strongly that the American flag stands for the millions of people who have sacrificed over the years, either with their lives or with their willingness to protest and to be really, really tough until we got better. It represents those people, too.
That’s the reason it needs to be respected. Not because America is perfect. America is imperfect. But as citizens of a democracy, you have an obligation to work towards that perfection. And the flag is simply a symbol of the fact that we have greater freedoms than any peoples in the world. I would prefer to see it respected.”
Well said, Ms. Rice.
