Do You Think Condolezza Rice Got A Pass From The Black Community?

I recently read a interview of Spike Lee and in the interview he raised some good points about Ms. Rice I am not saying I agree. As far as Ms.Rice I have respect for her personal accomplishments. I admire the fact that she is loyal to her party and she's a black woman.

Below is an excerpt from the interview:

People say "She's so successful" and "Look at her position as a Black Woman". She is a black woman who grew up in Birmingham, Alabama, and said that she has never experienced a day of racism in her life. Condi, stop smoking that crack! I know you love you Ferragamo shoes, but come on. While people were drowning in New Orleans, she was going up and down Madison Avenue buying Ferregamo shoes. Then she went to see Spamalot.



We all no how , Colin Powell caught major flack and some called him a sellout for his place in the Bush administration yet Condi has caught little to no flack from the black community leaders. Why do you think that is? She was and had been part of some of the biggest cover ups in the Bush administration. We all saw her "testimony" to the 9/11 committee.
I am not agreeing with Spike nor disagreeing but I personally thinking Spike Lee might have a point.
What is your view on this? Did Condi get a free pass or was Spike too hard on her?
