College Students: Madeleine Albright is ‘Too White’ to Be Our Commencement Speaker

Sure, Madeleine Albright is the first female Secretary of State of the United States…. but does that earn her the “privilege” of speaking in front of a bunch of hungover college students on graduation day?

Fox News reports:

Soon after officials at all-female Scripps College, in Claremont, Calif., announced Albright would speak to graduates, an article in the school paper derided the Czech-born diplomat for her skin color and previous policy positions, and other students posted their concerns on social media, according to The Claremont Independent.

“Just out of curiosity, does anyone know how many [people of color] we’ve had as guest commencement speakers at Scripps?” asked one student.

The 78-year-old Albright, who worked for the National Security Council during the administration of President Jimmy Carter and later taught international affairs at Georgetown University, was U.S. ambassador to the UN before being named secretary of state by then-President Bill Clinton in 1996.

The icing on the cake?

The newspaper noted that Scripps students did not object when Angela Davis, a radical-turned-academic who was on the FBI’s Top Ten Most Wanted list for murder and kidnapping—spoke on campus earlier this year.

Selective outrage at its finest….

There are many reasons to oppose Madeleine Albright as a commencement speaker, but her race isn’t one of them.

Shallow college progressives need to look beyond the color of people’s skin, because it’s getting really old.
