More Hope & Change… Attorney General Says America Is "Nation Of Cowards"

I feel uplifted.
Eric Holder today told Department of Justice employees that America is a “nation of cowards.”
MSNBC reported:

At a Department of Justice program this morning celebrating African American History Month, the nation’s first black attorney general — Eric Holder — said the United States is a “nation of cowards” when it comes to racial issues.

Holder said average Americans “simply do not talk enough with each other about race.”

Holder maintained that Justice Department employees have a special responsibility to advance racial understanding throughout the country.

“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. Though race-related issues continue to occupy a significant portion of our political discussion, and though there remain many unresolved racial issues in this nation, we, average Americans, simply do not talk enough with each other about race.”

Coming from a Democrat, this does make some sense.
