Beckel: ‘Not Sure’ Condoleezza Rice Should Be ‘a Symbol’ for Black People in Inner Cities

Later, co-panelist Andrea Tantaros confronted Beckel for downplaying Rice’s experience as not being reflective of the black community, as well as for diminishing her accomplishments.

​”I think it’s really unfair for you, Bob, to codify the black community,” Tantaros said. “If you start in a middle-class family, your message isn’t worth it — ‘Sorry, Condoleezza Rice​, you didn’t have to overcome anything’ — that’s not fair.”

Beckel largely stood by his statements, saying that she benefited from coming from a family with a mother and a father.
