    I know that it is the one charge that can be leveled at someone in a conversation and I immediately discount everything that the accuser says from then on. It's just obnoxious and trite at this point.

    There's a brilliant South Park episode where the children don't get it that a figure of black man being lynched by a group of white figures is racist. They don't notice at all that the men are different colors.

    One day.

    Re: Attorney General Trashes Americans as "Cowards"

    The only person that cares about and worships Eric Holder is PeteEU. Let's move on.

    Eric Holder, have you met Dr. James Watson? He tried to talk honestly about race and lots of your fellow travelers vilified him. He wasn't a coward. You really should direct your energy at reforming the attitudes of the race warriors in your own ranks before you call Americans cowards. Every scientist learned a very important lesson at Dr. Watson's expense - don't talk honestly about race if you wish to preserve your career.

    Eric Holder needs to resign or be removed from his post.

    HEll no, leave him there, better yet, push his ideas, get behind your AG Mr. Obama... show America what you really believe in.

    Don't tell me Obama didn't know Holder believed in such, nor try to tell me he doesn't support it.

    Re: Holder: US is nation of cowards on racial matters

    I would love to see a panel on race.
    Three 3-hour sessions in one day.

    We would send Walter Williams, Thomas Sowell, Larry Elder, Rev. Peterson, Alan Keyes, and Michael Steele.

    The left could pick from their all-star lineup of race pimps.

    If we aren't talking enough... then let's talk, and first start from inside "the community" that has made an endless stink about race and had the AG spewing his drivel about Americans being "cowards". Even though it is their party that has the long and cold record of enslaving people and doesn't recognize their past ways. Whether it's blacks or Japanese...

    Let's get it on record for all to see.
    Let's have a discussion and run it in prime time on some major network.

    Re: Holder: US is nation of cowards on racial matters

    Listen I too am tired of some people using the "racist" painting on every comment you make of a person of colour. I am also tired of the "anti-semitic" painting by people because you are critical of Israel.

    But that does not change the fact that racism does exist in the US and around the world, and in the US it is often pushed under the rug, especially by the Republican party. On the flip side, yes the Democrats use the "racist" painting far too often, which is just as bad and does not help. Because when there is actually a racist episode, the right can just dismiss it as another lefty hyperhole on the issue. The "monkey" song is a great example. Yes calling a black man a monkey is racist, but the right were given a free pass somewhat by saying it was a joke.

    So yes the US is a nation of cowards when it comes to racial matters. So is Europe, and most nations around the world. They often deny the fact that race matters and some people exploit race for their own political gain and others refuse to combat it and even worse, deal with it. I am glad that the US is dealing and discussing the problem at least in some circles, that is often more than we are doing over here, but it does not change the fact that race matters in the US.

    Totally agree.

    Repubs just don't care or are hyper careful about it usually, at least in my opinion.

    The monkey song was in bad taste I'm sure but if you make a big stink about it, then you give it power.

    No, we are not a nation of cowards nor is Europe.

    Race doesn't matter it is the culture of certain races.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.
