    The subtext of McGruder is his belief that Condoleezza is antithetical to black interests. His hyperbole was over the top, as is his wont. Say what you want about her, that she was a horrible Secretary of State or that she was ineffective as a National Security Advisor, or that she’s a murderer (as McGruder has said), but she’s not “anti-black”. One of her better statements on the issue: “Black Americans were a founding population. Africans and Europeans came here and founded this country together: Europeans by choice and Africans in chains. That’s not a very pretty reality of our founding. Descendants of slaves did not get much of a head start, and I think you continue to see some of the effects of that. That particular birth defect makes it hard for us to confront it (race), hard for us to talk about it, and hard for us to realize that it has continuing relevance for who we are today.”
