The senior US diplomat described racism and discrimination in the US in
taped remarks this week to Al Sharpton’s National Action Network.

“Is the president going to remove an African American woman with decades
of experience in the Foreign Service who is widely respected around the
world from her position as ambassador to the UN? He is not,” Psaki said.
“He is proud to have her in that position. She is not only qualified, he
believes she is exactly the right person in that role at this moment in

Racism is the problem of the racist. And it is the problem of the society
that produces the racist. And in today’s world, that is every society.”

counted black slaves as three-fifths of a person for purposes of taxation
and representation. The Constitution was amended in 1865 to ban slavery.
