Race in the headlines again.

with one comment

The new AG may have used the wrong word – “cowards” – to describe Americans when it comes to discussing race problems in America. But he wasn’t wrong in bringing the subject up for debate.

Race is still a problem in this country. Just witness the recent NY Post cartoon which garnered so much publicity.

Most white Americans, in reality, do not know how to discuss race and are not comfortable with the discussion. Race is an area of fear – just as anti-semitism was for so long.

Holder’s speech, in retrospect, may open a much needed dialog – provided, of course, that we can keep the pundits, in their search for high ratings, under control.
