The Attorney General Eric Holder stated yesterday, “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, essentially a nation of cowards.”
Sure he stated “in his belief”, he’s not stupid. If he had not said that, he may be even more disliked by Americans today. All of this unfolded during Black month as Holder puts the “lack” in Black month and the “whi” in White month. Well there isn’t a White month. Does it make white people cowards for not fighting for one? Most white people are color blind these days as most black people are too. It’s not the color that makes the issue, it’s who’s inside. Black, white, yellow, red, purple, blue…America’s rainbow is more intelligent that others give them credit to be, creating walls of seperation and reminders of labels. And coming from the first black Attorney General working under the first black US president, I think people can accept the colorful tones and hues of change. But when our very own Attorney General gets his foot in the door to discriminate, America, we have a problem.
Does he expect my kid to walk the streets with a sign that says, “I’m white and not prejudice?”. His black friends would think he’s crazy. If they sit around talking about the differences then they will feel different, it’s all psychological. Would you want to walk up to a co-worker and state that you think another is a “coward” due to them not telling you what you claim they think? That would make you prejudice towards another by doing so since they may not think that way, even when you think they do. Let’s talk about Martin Luther King vs. Malcolm X. MLK was peaceful, MX was forceful. Sounds to me as if Holder would rather follow MX instead of MLK. MLK wanted the black people to be heard, be seen, be counted in equal. MX wanted black people to fight for their rights even if it meant to forcefully do so. MX created more violence that MLK would approve. State your peace if you disagree.
When I go to an Indian website late last night and find that “America is a nation of cowards”, it angers me to allow this vulnerable statement to reach outside hands. With the borders going wild, and Zetas growing in organized murders, Obama hasn’t mentioned any of it as it seems he is brushing it off his shoulders when trouble walks through American borders daily. But wait until Mexico hears what our Attorney General stated, it’s going to give them the green light to mock what they do not understand. What do you think is going to happen when they hear that America is a “nation of cowards” coming from those running it. They are going to say, “hey, even the government says they wont do anything about it.” They will get the wrong message. Something Holder did not think of. And this does not include overseas.
As for Eric Holder stating that this was his “belief”, as mentioned, this word saved himself from more American jabs. Mr. Holder, it is my belief that you are not a true patriot of peace and give the colorful spectrum little credit. It is my belief and opinion that you are going out of your way to create walls. It is also my opinion that it is shallow when people blame others already dead for the way they mistreated those different. If there is an ax to grind, it’s going down in heaven and hell, but as far as heaven on earth Mr. Holder, don’t tread on US!
