Ouch! Piers Morgan Asks Ms. Rice Why She’s Still Single

January 24, 2011  |  

Piers Morgan sat down with former Secretary of State, Condoleeza Rice, and things got pretty personal. Among other things Piers asked Madame Rice how she managed “to avoid being snared.” Although he twisted the phrasing a little bit, (what woman doesn’t want to “snared?”), the question still pounced on a touchy subject.

Here we have yet another example supporting this false notion that successful women don’t marry and successful, black women are destined to die alone in a house overrun with cats.

Check out Condoleeza’s response in the video below:

You can read the full analysis of the situation over at Black Voices.

Should Piers have asked this question?

    Condi wasn't chosen as McCain's VP because she wasn't interested in the post or any other elected office. She is a beautiful woman, great example to youths, extremely loyal God, family, friend and country an extremely hard worker. Single professional black men over 50 are all stupid for not trying to "grab" her. If I were male, older and black she will not be single.

    She is gay. She and her lover have been together for years. It would kill her career to live life out openly gay. That’s why Sarah Palin was chosen over her as Rep. Candidate for VP.

  • Very good written post. It will be useful to anybody who employess it, including yours truly :). Keep up the good work – looking forward to more posts.

    I read her memoir, and I have a totally different view of her now. She is totally fab, and if it's meant for her to marry, she'll marry. If not, she is still a woman who inspired several young black girls to pursue a career that they may have never considered before seeing her.

    May not agree with a politics, but she is a brilliant women.

    Black men are too insecure for this beautiful brilliant woman. They would want her to act stupid so they can appear smarter. That's why if she marries it must be a white man whose her equal and secure in letting her be who she is. I'm a white Harvard man and I would date her in a minute and she could make fried chicken for me any day.

  • Shel

    To be fair, he asked George Clooney the same question. Maryland reader

  • archie

    they would have never ask a man that question…he was trying to throw her under the bus.

  • Piers is totally flirting with her! Cute couple.


    She cooks corn bread and fried chicken..? I don't buy that for a min. She better head on over to match.com I dont forsee any trips down the aisle in her future.
