'Are we post-racial yet?'

Listen up, now. This is important. We brain dead white people are really cowards when it comes to the issue of race, did you know?

This is the man President Obama put in charge of assuring that all the laws of the land be administered equally, regardless of race. Jennifer Rubin writes:

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.

"Even as we fight a war against terrorism; deal with the reality of electing an African-American, for the first time, as the president of the United States; and deal with other significant issues of the day, the need to confront our racial past and to understand our racial present, and to understand the history of African people in this country — that all endures,” the attorney general added.

Are Americans really "cowards" for not "confronting" the past oppression of African Americans?

Since we are reminded on a daily basis about that past, I hardly see how it is possible anyone who went through high school wouldn't have "confronted" the issues of slavery and segregation at some point. It is the fact that it is not front and center as an issue that bothers people like Holder.

And as far as Black history, the AG can be forgiven if he doesn't know that not only is Black history slighted in schools but also White history, the history of Indians, the history of women, and probably the history of Eskimos although it's been a while since I took an American history course.

They don't even call it "history" anymore but "social studies" which implies a study of the people in this country with less emphasis placed on our founding than on the struggle for civil rights for blacks and women. The point being, it will be impossible to ever satisfy Holder and other racialists regarding the teaching of black history or white America ever learning the lessons of history they would wish us to learn. If they ever acknowledged such, they'd be out of business.

Jeez it's going to be a long four years...
