    Attorney General Trashes Americans as "Cowards"

    Eric Holder has some serious audacity:

    The Right-Wing Underground: Obama's Attorney General Trashes Americans as "Cowards"

    The question is: Is it Americans or Democrats who need to man-up and stop being cowards on race?

    Democracy is two wolves and a sheep voting on what's for dinner (paraphrasing James Bovard).

    Seriously this right wing underground is just as legitimate as listening to Osama bin Laden talk about ethics.

    Race issues continue to be a topic of political discussion, but "we, as average Americans, simply do not talk enough with each other about race."
    Why should it even be an issue? Why is race something that needs to be discussed at all? I suppose every time I converse with Hatuey I'll be sure to remind him of his blackness and how it informs the issues we are discussing.

    Holder: US is nation of cowards on racial matters

    WASHINGTON (AP) - Attorney General Eric Holder described the United States Wednesday as a nation of cowards on matters of race, saying most Americans avoid discussing unresolved racial issues.

    In a speech to Justice Department employees marking Black History Month, Holder said the workplace is largely integrated but Americans still self-segregate on the weekends and in their private lives.

    "Though this nation has proudly thought of itself as an ethnic melting pot, in things racial we have always been and continue to be, in too many ways, essentially a nation of cowards," said Holder, nation's first black attorney general.

    Now all that was just complete crap, the end part is the best though, the part that had a white man said this...


    He told Justice Department employees they have a special responsibility to advance racial understanding.
    Yes that is the job of the JD... to enforce racial understanding....

    Why do we even need to mention race anymore? Whatever happened to content and not outside appearance. Stuff like this makes me want to kick Holder in the head.

    I grew up being told that King guy had the right of it... ya know "judge a man by the merit of his character not the color of his skin..."

    Guess no one told him that wasn't the path to riches and power by the race hustle machine.

    We are such cowards on racial matters that an American of African descent has just been elected President of the United States.

    This is just hate filled misinformation in an attempt to draw lines and create an enemy. In the neighborhood you see school youth dropping the gang related bandannas and different races intermingling now equipped with a weed bandannas.

    I don't know how many times during conversations with people around the block you get asked eventually in a casual tone, "Are you racist at all?"

    It is a very easy to topic to talk about now days if you are not retarded.

    Now.. lets talk about the image of retarded people and how society acts towards them instead.

    There are some blacks in this country who have wiped their asses with the memory of MLK.

    I think he's linking this site because it has ads for his book.
