I did wonder if Eric Holder was referring to blacks as well as whites when he said this.  Bill Maxwell gives his take:

I do not have a problem with what Holder said. I do have a problem, however, with what is not being publicly talked about in this controversy: On matters of race, blacks are cowards, too. We may be the worst cowards of all. First, we have perfected the crude art of controlling the terms of race talk. Second, we have developed various ways of avoiding and squashing the truth about our complicity in matters of race that are self-destructive.

I’m interested in your thoughts about this article.
