I'm a Coward!

The attorney general of the United States thinks I'm a coward. Most of my co-workers are Asian, I attend an Asian-American church, and almost all my relatives are Chinese.

Newsweek Article
Attorney General Eric Holder described the United States Wednesday as a nation of cowards on matters of race, saying most Americans avoid discussing awkward racial issues.

In a speech to Justice Department employees marking Black History Month, Holder said the workplace is largely integrated but Americans still self-segregate on the weekends and in their private lives.

"Though this nation has proudly thought of itself as an ethnic melting pot, in things racial we have always been and I believe continue to be, in too many ways, essentially a nation of cowards," said Holder, nation's first black attorney general.

What a pompous jackass. Wait... his wife is black. I'll bet most of his friends in college were black. Is he a coward too? He doesn't mention how I can earn my badge of courage. Do I just need to talk about "racial issues" or do I have to agree with Al Sharpton and MALDEF/La Raza?

I think Mr. Holder needs to focus on his new job and not worry about who I hang out with on weekends.
