The left has a bad habit of thinking they know what is best for everyone. They assume that people should think a certain way because of their economic position, social class, or race.
Former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice called out Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden for thinking that black people should act and think a certain way just because they're black by saying, "if you have a problem figuring out whether you’re for me or Trump, then you ain’t black.”
Rice said, "I don't really care if we're colorblind, but I would like to get to the place that when you see somebody who is black, you don't have preconceived notions of what they're capable of, who they are - by the way, what they think, which is a big problem of the left. You look at somebody who's black and you think you know what they think, or you at least think you know what they ought to think."
Rice believes that the country is still trying to repair the long-term damage of the "birth defect" of slavery in the United States and systemic racism is still a problem.
"I am not one who believes you can just sort of 'take on systemic racism,' I don't even know how to start. I do think you can take on the impact of the educational system for minority kids that leaves most of them behind. I think you can take that on. But people might not like my answer. My answer is: Let's do school choice in a big way," said Rice.
President Donald Trump and Education Secretary Betsy DeVos are vocal advocates for school choice which is a system in which the government gives education tax dollars back to families so they have alternatives to the poor educational options in their neighborhood. Whether it be public, private, charter, or homeschooling, parents can pick what best fit their child's need.
Quality education is the first step in changing our future. Like Churchill said, "Those who fail to learn from history are condemned to repeat it."
