Former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice said on a Thanksgiving edition of Face the Nation that America may have come a long way in confronting racial inequality, but will never be “race blind.”

“We have a Black president. We’ve had two Black secretaries of state. We have Black CEOs. Obviously African-Americans are pushing way into territories that, probably, my grandparents would never have thought possible,” Rice said on CBS’s Face the Nation, but added that race will always be a factor in American life.

It is a birth defect with which this country was born out of slavery; we’re never really going to be race blind,” she said.
She pointed to the confluence of race and poverty as a particularly troubling constraint for overcoming inequality, and wondered if that problem isn’t becoming even more exacerbated in recent years.
