Of course, MA Governor “Coupe” Deval Patrick is defending the indefensible. By which I am referring to U.S. AG Eric Holder’s comment last week that America is a nation of cowards. The Boston Herald reports:
Patrick, Massachusetts’ first black governor, said that while not every judgment people make about each other is based on race, race continues to be a factor in many personal decisions, from where a person lives to which church they attend.
Patrick said that’s the message he thought Holder was trying to make during the attorney general’s controversial speech to hundreds of Justice Department employees marking Black History Month, in which he said, “Though this nation has proudly thought of itself as an ethnic melting pot, in things racial we have always been and I believe continue to be, in too many ways, essentially a nation of cowards.”
Thanks for explaining that to us, Coupe! So we are a nation of cowards because “not every judgment people make about each other is based on race”? We must view everything in our lives through a race-based lens in order to be brave?
What a bunch of crap. What happened to Dr. King’s idea of judging people on the content of their character, rather than the color of their skin? Nah, if everyone did that, Coupe would be out of a job!
