U.S. A Nation OF Cowards On Race!?!

When I heard this I was astonished!
But then after a while, it began to make sense. We are a nation of cowards because we won't stand up to the black man and INSIST that he discontinue his attitude that his only way to make money is through a life of crime, and begin to work for his room and board like the rest of us!

White Guilt is rampant in America!
Americans are afraid of confronting the black man!

Holder Calls U.S. 'Nation of Cowards' on Race Matters
In a speech to Justice Department employees marking Black History Month, Attorney General Eric Holder said the workplace is largely integrated but Americans still self-segregate on the weekends and in their private lives.

WASHINGTON -- Eric Holder, the nation's first black attorney general, said Wednesday the United States was "a nation of cowards" on matters of race, with most Americans avoiding candid discussions of 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.

(And where is it written that I have to socialize with you just because you're black or green or yellow or pink? I'll hang with the folks I want to hang with Mr. Holder!)

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

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."

Holder's speech echoed President Barack Obama's landmark address last year on race relations during the hotly contested Democratic primaries, when the then-candidate urged the nation to break "a racial stalemate we've been stuck in for years" and bemoaned the "chasm of misunderstanding that exists between the races."

Obama delivered the speech to try to distance himself from the angry rhetoric of his former pastor, the Rev. Jeremiah Wright.

Holder cited that speech by Obama as part of the motivation for his words Wednesday, saying Americans need to overcome an ingrained inhibition against talking about race.

"If we're going to ever make progress, we're going to have to have the guts, we have to have the determination, to be honest with each other. It also means we have to be able to accept criticism where that is justified," Holder told reporters after the speech.

Holder urged people of all races to use Black History Month as a chance for honest discussion of racial matters, including issues of health care, education and economic disparities.

Race, Holder said, "is an issue we have never been at ease with and, given our nation's history, this is in some ways understandable... 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."

In a country founded by slave owners, race has bedeviled the nation throughout its history, with blacks denied the right to vote just a few decades ago. Obama's triumph last November as well as the nomination of Holder stand as historic achievements of two black Americans.

Holder told hundreds of Justice Department employees gathered for the event that they have a special responsibility to advance racial understanding.

Even when people mix at the workplace or afterwork social events, Holder argued, many Americans in their free time are still segregated inside what he called "race-protected cocoons."

"Saturdays and Sundays, America in the year 2009 does not in some ways differ significantly from the country that existed almost 50 years ago. This is truly sad," said Holder.

Andrew Grant-Thomas, Deputy Director of the Kirwan Institute for the Study of Race and Ethnicity at Ohio State University, praised Holder's general message but said the wording of the speech may alienate some.

"He's right on the substance, but that's probably not the most politic way of saying it. I'm certain there are people who will hear him and say, 'That's obnoxious,"' he said, adding that what was missing from Holder's speech were specific examples of what painful subjects need to be addressed.

Hilary Shelton, vice president of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, called the speech "constructively provocative."

"Nobody wants to be considered a coward. We've learned to get along by exclusion and silence. We need to talk about it. People need to feel comfortable saying the wrong things," said Shelton.

Soooo... What is Holder really saying?

It seems to me that Mr. Holder is calling us out!
That he wants a fight!

And, I'm not the only one to see it this way!

A Nation Of Cowards?
Matthew May
Of course, Eric Holder is correct.

When it comes to race we Americans are, for the most part, a nation of cowards. This cowardice was on full display during the most recent presidential election and continues today.

As they are in so many other areas of life, chief among our American cowards are the representatives of the national political media.

During the presidential campaign, there was a maniacal effort on the part of the national media to find whites who would not vote for Barack Obama, never mind the reasoning for choosing so.

Whites who were not for Mr. Obama were automatically racist in outlook and action, you see.

No major media network or national newspaper attempted to investigate the associations of Barack Obama with William Ayres and the Annenberg Project in Chicago.

No major media network or national newspaper launched an investigation as to the release of Barack Obama's grades in college, the lack of legal scholarship that somehow landed him as president of the Harvard Law Review, or any other aspect of his mysterious academic record.

Think back to how resolute and determined that same media were in smoking out the academic record of George W. Bush to prove he is a dolt.

What is the difference?

It is the difference between the incurious or deliberate ignoring of the seemingly endless and disturbing associations and utterances of Barack Obama and the deliberate attempts at smashing anything and everything associated with Sarah Palin.

Because Palin is white, she was fair game.
Because Barack Obama is sort of black, anything said against him or an honest inquiry into his past was automatically deemed racist - literally no questions asked.

While such cowardice is to be expected from the national media, there is, however, an element of cowardice among too many of us who blanch at the thought of fighting back when accused of racism or an unwillingness to "discuss race," whatever that means.

We are reluctant to inflame or we think that perhaps it is understandable that some black Americans believe that all white Americans are inherently racist in thought and action and, as such, those who prattle on about white racism are not checked and required to defend their statements.

Too many of us are unwilling to risk the censure of our self-proclaimed betters, or risk being labeled racists for fear of retribution in the workplace or the neighborhood.

Too many of us are unwilling to say out loud that we truly live by the credo laid down so eloquently by Martin Luther King, Jr., on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial in 1963 and demand that it be proved otherwise.

Too many of us are reluctant to remind others that the "salient datum," as William F. Buckley, Jr., observed in Tennessee shortly after Dr. King was murdered, was not that the United States bred the murderer but that "we bred the most widely shared and the most intensely felt grief...as if felt over the loss of one's own sons."

Too many of us are unwilling to respond to real racism perpetrated by the likes of Eric Holder, Barack Obama, and Jeremiah Wright by repudiating their bigotry in loud, bold language.

Instead we slink to diversity awareness programs at work and school and pretend they are useful.

We yield to the propaganda our children - all of our children - are fed in government schools at the expense of the canons of Western civilization without standing up to demand better of our educators.

When reluctant to stand up for our children against the onslaught of illiberal education, it is difficult to imagine how much more cowardly we could be.

Yes, there are rabid racists about in the land.
They come in all shades. But they are few in relative number.

Yet too many of us have cowered in the face of these racial bullies.
No more.

Americans of good faith, Americans who live our lives with love in our hearts, charity in our actions, and malice toward only those who seek to destroy us must stand up for ourselves and resist these baseless charges and worthless observations. It is obvious that our acts alone do not satisfy the race-warmongers among us, and it behooves us to conclude that they never will.

We, Americans of goodwill, must push back and declare that the sentiments of people like the attorney general are invalid, untrue, and unacceptable. We must stand up and demand that our president state clearly if he endorses the remarks of the attorney general who, it must be remembered, serves at the pleasure of the president.

Anything else and we truly are cowards.
Yet we know in our hearts that we are not. Let us prove it once and for all, no matter what anyone might say.
So... the truth is revealed!
White Americans voted for Obama out of FEAR!
Fear that if they did not, they would be labeled RACISTS!

Maybe it's time we stood up to this Obama character and called him out!
