Are We Post-Racial Yet?

Eric Holder, our first African American Attorney General serving under out first African American President, has these words about his fellow citizens:

Though this nation has proudly thought of itself as an ethnic melting pot, in things racial, we have always been, and we, I believe, continue to be, in too many ways, a nation of cowards,” Holder said in remarks to his staff in honor of Black History Month. His comments appear on a transcript provided by the Justice Department.

Someone should have asked him about that at the confirmation hearing. I have no idea what he could possibly be thinking other than to throw crumbs to the liberal professional civil-rights lobbyists and perpetual-victimization crowd. But it sure isn’t going to go over well with all those “cowards” out there in America.
