Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Mediaite.com: “Condoleezza Rice Cautions Trump on Race Issues: 'The President Needs to Be A Lot More Careful'”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice told CNN she isn’t happy with how President Donald Trump is handling race issues, saying “the president needs to be a lot more careful.”

“The president needs to be a lot more careful in the way he speaks about these things, because race is a very delicate and raw nerve in America. We have a birth defect of slavery, we have a birth defect of a number of people being treated badly, so you have to be careful,” Rice said.

“But I’ll tell you, Fareed, it’s not all coming out of the White House. I hear a lot coming out of the left on these issues, too, that I don’t like the language that is used about people, the notion that because somebody looks a certain way or is of a certain color, they ought to think a certain way, and if they don’t think a certain way, then they’re really not black,” Rice said.
