The newly appointed Attorney General Eric Holder is wasting no time in proving that he is indeed better than all of us when it comes to race relations. Calling America a “coward” with regard to discussions on race, Holder set forth his race-baiting agenda over the next 4 years.
Report from Breitbart:
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.
Race issues continue to be a topic of political discussion, Holder said, but “we, as average Americans, simply do not talk enough with each other about race.”
He urged people of all races to use Black History Month as a chance for frank talk about racial matters.
“It is an issue we have never been at ease with and, given our nation’s history, this is in some ways understandable,” Holder said. “If we are to make progress in this area, we must feel comfortable enough with one another and tolerant enough of each other to have frank conversations about the racial matters that continue to divide us.”
He told Justice Department employees they have a special responsibility to advance racial understanding.
Here’s the groundbreaking statements via MSObamaNBC:
The first African-American Attorney General appointed by the first African-American President says the country is a “nation of cowards” on the issue of race. I’m sorry, did I miss something? I know, some will tell me that I don’t understand and race is a “complex” issue and having the first African-American President doesn’t “solve” the problem.
Here’s a newsflash, perhaps people avoid talking about race because unless they conform to the liberal viewpoint they’re brandished as raaaaaaaaaaacists. Perhaps if the race-baiters stop calling everyone a racist with whom they disagree we might have a more open dialogue, ya think?
So basically, according to Holder, Americans elected the first African-American President but we’re all still racists because he says so. Of course, the phrase “honest discussion” can roughly translate to “agree with me or you’re racist.”
There, it’s been said.
