Nation of Cowards? No! Afraid to speak openly about Race? Yes!
Nation of Racial Cowards? No! Afraid to speak openly? Yes! While I disagree with Att Gen Eric Holders statement on being cowards, perhaps he is hitting on a hint of truth. I know that many people supress their true feelings. Whether its fear stemming from lack knowledge of others to understanding each culture having differing issues and needs and thats ok.
We are a collection of differing thoughts, creeds cultures and beleif system, different, yet the same. Political and ethnical Correctness has taken our ability to speak on this and our thoughts have been suppressed deep in everyone's gut. The reason for this is because our racial past, we went through a time of "being pc" driven mostly by big companies hr departments. We went from segregation to HUSH HUSH mostly because most people could not adress them selves in a well educated and non violant manner.
It served its purpose, through the 80's and 90's coming out of our racial past and served to protect peoples mental stability while on the job and it was the right thing to do! But perhaps MR HOLDER, WE HAVE REACHED and ERA of the ABILITY to "DISAGREE WITH OUT BEING DISAGREEABLE"! We can talk about this.America Needs time and a forum to speak openly. Statements like that only serve to set us back! WHAT DO YOU THINK AMERICA?
