Susan Rice on Principles & Values

 

 


Pitcher at Morehouse College & Congressional Baseball Game

In Congress, he continued the cross-party friendship with neighboring GOP Rep. Steve Scalise that began when they both served in the state legislature. Richmond would also lead the Congressional Black Caucus from 2017 to 2019. Perhaps most famously, though, Richmond was unquestionably the best player from either party in the annual Congressional Baseball Game, and Democrats dominated almost every game featuring the former Morehouse College pitcher.

Against divisiveness; Americans sink or swim together

"One of the critical reasons why we are in such a difficult spot, whether with respect to the pandemic or economy, national cohesion, racial justice issues is because we are now burdened with leadership in the White House that thrives on dividing us and pitting Americans against each other," she said. "We absolutely have to move past that to a point of a recognition that we are all in this boat together, we sink or swim together."

Fierce love of country should override disagreements

We can't take the view that, because you and I disagree over politics or religion, or whatever it is, that we're dismissing each other as Americans. If that happens, our country's going to fall apart. There are people who are benefiting politically from pulling us apart. We, as Americans, can't allow that to happen. We have got to have the same sort of fierce love of our country and tough love that we try to apply in the family context, challenging as it sometimes is.
