Eric Holder: US still a nation of cowards on race

Attorney General Eric Holder reiterated his 2009 claim that Americans are a “nation of cowards” on racial issues on Thursday.

Holder’s effort to profile the entire nation as cowards came during a friendly interview with the University of Virginia’s Miller Center, where was asked if he would take back his 2009 remarks.

“I would not take that back,” he replied.

As usual, Holder did not brave questions from the audience or from other reporters in the room.

In 2009, Holder claimed that “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.”

“Certain subjects are off-limits and that to explore them risks at best embarrassment, and at worst, the questioning of one’s character,” he told his agency employees at an event celebrating Black History Month.
