did any see Connie Rice on CSPAN?
Connie Rice is the cousin of Condi Rice she is the co-director of the Advancement Prioject. I was watching the Brown vs Board of Education 50th anniversary discussions and I tell you they're like night and day both in their political affiliations and their looks.

1. She was on NOW
with Bill Moyers several weeks ago. I found it hard to believe they were related - their ideals and world views are so different. PLUS her smile looks genuine not put on like Condi's

2. Yep, if there's one thing that really impressed me about her...
is that she hasn't forgotten where she came from. I have a sister who has forgotten where she came from and it makes me sad.

3. Yea, I have one of those sisters too,
but can't imagine Condi having a sister. She mostly doesn't seem to be human. More like an alien. Almost robotic with a automatic nod and a tape recorder that answers questions with programed answers wither the answer applies or not.

4. She sold her sole
she has no feelings left. Her alien/robotic persona is no suprise.

5. I'm embarrassed to have to admit
Edited on Sat May-15-04 08:59 PM by rocknation
That when I first heard of Connie Rice, it was on AirAm radio, and I was expecting a comedy skit!



Constance L. Rice, Lawyer
...Rice gained admission to Harvard, only to be physically beaten during her freshman year by a fellow student whom she had refused to date...Rice...(became a)...national...(tae kwon do)...champion...(and earned)...degree(s) in government from Harvard (and)...in law from New York University...

The Advancement Project, which Rice co-founded, is responsible for a dramatic court victory that required the state to spend the funds it had to build new schools in the districts that needed them. Also, her firm was deeply involved in efforts to expose the recent Ramparts corruption scandal and it now has a contract to advise the city's police union...Unlike her second cousin, Condoleezza Rice, Constance Rice avoids party affiliations and political labels. But she says the two women share an appreciation of "facts, analysis and a solution."

6. I like her a lot - saw her on CSpan and she's on NPR sometimes
She's a frequent guest on Tavis Smiley's new show. I don't catch it live, but the entire show and/or parts of it are available at www.npr.org .

I did NOT know that she's Condi's cousin! First time I heard of her, though, I thought Tavis was saying "Condi", but I doubted that because she was being critical of BushCo.

Connie can be witty, she speaks the truth, and she's way cool!
