This man is a stooge

Yesterday, to mark Black History Month, our new U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder got up in front of an audience and called us a "nation of cowards."

I hate to take anything out of context. So, when I heard the outrageous news reports of the incident, I quickly got my hands on the entire text of his little speech.

He really said those words. And, he justified them with a rather poor argument that we are afraid to talk about race in America.

What a load of hooey.

The last time I checked, not only are Mr. Holder and the president he serves both African Americans. But, the heads of both major political parties are also black men.

Clearly, our country as a whole is a lot more comfortable with our multi-racial/cultural environment than is Mr. Holder.

Evidently, he will not be content unless we are constantly talking about our feelings. (More likely, he would expect us all to sit quietly while he pontificates.)

I say we have some bigger fish to fry, and maybe he needs to get to work administering some justice or something that fits his job description.

Hope and change.
