I happen to agree with Eric Holder, the first black Attorney General (the first black or Hispanic this or that didn’t matter when Bush was President), that we have a nation of cowards when it comes to race. We have a nation of cowardly people that won’t stand up to the racial extortionists. I firmly believe that to the vast majority of Americans, race is no longer a real issue. The nation elected a black President for crying out loud, I can’t believe we are still having this discussion. If it wasn’t for people like Eric Holder trying to keep the racial thing an issue, if it wasn’t for affirmative action programs, if it wasn’t for things like black history month, I believe that the identity of one’s skin would surely fade away. Hyping these things only forces people that didn’t care in the first place to respond in guilt or rejection. With all Obama things, this is a power grab. Using external characteristics to gain an advantage is completely contradictory to the movement to tear down racial divides. A house divided against itself cannot stand. If you advocate for equality but use inequality to gain it, your movement is null and void. With all that aside, I really am just flabbergasted that we still have to listen to this racket. What will it take for this to stop. What success must a black person achieve before we say it is done. I thought it might be the Presidency, so I can’t think of anything higher than that, except maybe messiah. Oh wait, that one won’t work either because Obama was a two for one on that. I don’t recall physical description in the bible. People were characterized by their region or beliefs, not by their appearance. When did this change and how do we go back?
