It’s Massachusetts, What Did You Expect?

 

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!

    Blacks, whites, Hispanics, Asians, we are all afraid to talk openly and honestly about our differences. If you don’t think a black Attorney General has the right to discuss the God-awful disparity between the races – especially with respect to the justice system in this country, you must be extremely afraid of something…

      Sorry, Kip, but I’m not buying that. Allow me to point you to Larrey Anderson’s terrific article at American Thinker, in which Mr. Anderson says:

      “Sorry, Mr. Holder, it isn’t cowardice that keeps Americans from discussing racism — it is the fact that there is nothing to talk about. The racist America that you are talking about started to disappear at least thirty years ago.

      “There are, of course, certain communities in this country that have been deliberately and continually segregated by people like you. In these communities people eat, drink, and breathe racism.

      It is a shame that racism still exists in this country. But the Eric Holders, the Jesse Jacksons, the Al Sharptons, and the Barack Obamas of the world are keeping this issue alive. Mr. Holder, the shame and the cowardice of racism belong to you — not to my son and me.”

      I’m going to go with Mr. Anderson on this one.
