...because we don't talk about race issues enough. here's a link, but you can google the title and find plenty of articles concerning Attorney General Holder's comment.
well, i think there may be a significant array of reasons for that. some people choose to ignore it. some choose to look beyond it. and some, like myself, will discuss it, and often get a severe backlash and get called racist just for bringing it up. i think in some regards he is right that it doesn't need to be shushed and hidden away like it doesn't exist. but i've also chosen to avoid the topic because i know it'll greatly offend SOMEbody and get me hurt in the process, a method in self-preservation. but according to the Attorney General that is being "cowardly".
damned if you do, damned if you don't!
feedback, por favor. muchas gracias!

I live in a diverse neighborhood and we ALL have no problem talking about ANYTHING. What I find interesting? Obama made fun of and publicly ridiculed Phil Gramm, who said "We[leaders/lawmakers] were a Nation of Whiners" for politicians complaining about the recession and not being fiscal responsible themselves. The press and Obama took out the reference to lawmakers and made it out to be the entire nation before he said:
Obama said, “You know, America already has one Dr. Phil.,” But ohhh wait, Holder can play Dr Phil and say we are a Nation of Cowards? Perhaps another apparent acceptable Double Standards?

Anon:Rev Wright's words should be the example to discuss of what is racist and not appropriate.
I agree. He has quite a few video/audio quotes that are perfect examples of racism in America today. I wouldn't consider his words mature dialogue regarding race. Unless you are discussing what IS a racist remark.

The more people like him try to separateus will never be the human race, just a world of different races. The continued use of words like his does nothing but create segregation and indifference. He should be ashamed of himself.
