Holder's speech

I'd spend a while picking it apart and pointing out how much it gives the lie to claims that electing Obama will bring America past the "race issue", but Lawrence Auster does it much better than I could.

If I were to take the Attorney General's words about American's cowardice at face value, I'd think that he was implicating "people of color" as well as us white folk (since it's fairly common for black and Hispanic neighborhoods to be as racially pure as "white bread" suburban towns). The rest of his speech, however, makes it clear that the only cowards he sees have white skin.
