I find it sad that in the land of the free that a black person always has to prove how black they really are or be torn apart by members of the "black community". I think that to an extent we should be doing what we can to support them as a member of our community and perhaps this will lead to an opportunity to sway them to an afrocentric way of thinking. Negative criticism and attacks on a person's blackness just drives them further away- is that what we should be doing?
While I do not agree with the policies of the US government (yes very surprising for a foreigner) I think that Dr.Rice still could be a great example to many young black women both in and out of the United States.
It tickles my heart everytime I see her dealing with leaders in some of the most mysoginistic societies in the world and they have to play nice as she has their balls in her hands.
