Attorney General Eric Holder, a Clinton administration retread, wants to revive Bill Clintons National Conversation on Race. (Whats next? Hillarycare?) Holder recently told his Justice Department employees that the United States was a nation of cowards for not talking more about race. It is an issue we have never been at ease with and, given our nations 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.

Well gee, maybe if libtards hadn’t criminalized white people speaking frankly.
Here’s my conversation about race relations. I’m white. You’re black. Who cares. End of conversation about race relations.
Actually, I agree with Holder. We ARE a nation of racial cowards. Just look how we cower and snivel every time JJ or Big Al play the race card. Look how we refer to islam as the “religion of peace” when they’re a bunch of homicidal barbarians. Look how we are afraid to identify black perps as black perps, especially when they attack whitey.
We ARE a nation of cowards, just not in the way Mr. Holder meant.
People don’t talk about race because people like Al Sharpton get their nose out of joint by cartoons that have nothing to do with race.
So the black AG (and Stedman look-alike), chosen by the black President, bellyaches during black history month. This routine is now outdated, don’t you think?
Exactly. I don’t give a whit what color you are - it’s what you believe in and how you act that I care about.
If I mock a black man who was just arrested for selling crack on a street corner, I mock him because he is a loser, not because his skin looks different than mine. It is a concept liberals just cannot comprehend.

Ditto that. Thanks.
Hey Holder, maybe the reason that this nation doesn’t talk about race more is because those in the “majority” demographic would be accused of racism if we did. BTW, do the “cowards” include members of your own family? They’re in America too, right?
Sadly, this creep will surely get a free pass for his “coward” comment just like his boss did for his “bitter” comment.
Hey, Eric, let’s talk about liberals like you who have undermined black achievement in our society, hmmmm?
That's what I was thinking. I am waiting for someone to show some courage when they are falsely accused of being "racially insensitive". Usually, people fall all over themselves apologizing over nothing.
I remember a while back, a Colorado governor or mayor was having a town meeting, and the electricity kept going out. He said something like "you guys better fix this; the natives are getting restless". He was accused of being insensitive to "native Americans" (i.e. Indians) and other minorities, and apologized for his remarks.
He should have sais "I was making a joke!. The term 'the natives are getting restless' has been around for many years. Those of you who are too ignorant to know that or are too racially insensitive can kiss my ass! I'm not apologizing for something I didn't do!"
But, no one ever does that, because when it comes to race, we are a nation of cowards.
Nation of cowards?....Hey dufus!...tell it to your whack left liberal friends! they are the ones who institutionalized friggin P.C.!....IDIOT!
And who is it that always plays the race card?? the blacks..
