Washington, DC -- Our new Attorney General has let loose his views about us commons folks: He says we are a nation of cowards when it comes to racial issues!
In remarks made during a speech to honor Black History Month, Eric Holder said the country remains "voluntarily socially segregated," making head-turning comments that could spark fierce dialogue and the ire of some conservatives.
Yes, we are voluntarily socially segregated. That's called "freedom."
Addressing reporters after the speech, Holder, 57, said his comments were "a question of being honest," adding that "we have to have the guts" to talk about race issues instead of avoiding them.
The problem, however, is not that we are afraid to have such talks, the problem is that any WHITE person who speaks out on such issues is immediately attacked, smeared, besmirched and ostracized as a "racist." I know this from first-hand, personal experience.
One cannot talk about black crime, the black out-of-wedlock birth epidemic, the failure or refusal to do well in schools and a host of other legitimate issues without having one's life wrecked by the politically correct crowd.
So, Mr. Attorney General, we're not cowards' we're realists. We are willing to talk about racial issues but not at the expense of having our lives ruined. Solve that and we can talk.
