Holder: US a nation of cowards on racial matters

Pretty easy to be brave behind a stack of money and line of cops. His advice–

"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," Holder said.

Race issues continue to be a topic of political discussion, but “we, as average Americans, simply do not talk enough with each other about race.”

Yeah, that’s a good idea. I’ll walk up to the next black man I see downtown and ask him, “How do you feel when someone calls you, ‘nigger?’” Because by initiating that fucking conversation, were it in good faith, Mr. Holder, you imbecile, I’d’ve probably committed a hate crime; that or if he took a poke at me and I didn’t feel like letting him, I’d be going to jail.

The biggest cowards I see in the issue are the immensely successful and wealthy blacks in the US who still find the time to bitch about how racism has harmed them.

Geronimo’s kin sue Skull and Bones over remains

I know some Mescalero girls. I’d love to see them get the remains back. Or any remains really. Maybe say some of the members of the Skull and Bones who would better serve the world as a peace offering to the ghost of Goyaałé.

Cops clock man driving 137 mph in ’93 Honda Civic

Mine’s a ’90. Not only does it still have a little zip, it still gets 45mpg if you drive it right. Detroit should be burned down.

Human Rights may take second place on Hillary China visit…Activists “shocked”

I, for one, welcome our Clintonian overlords.

Activists shocked, eh? Sad but probably the best thing for them. A little shock treatment can help in the most mentally disturbed cases when no amount of counseling or medication seems to make any difference.

Re: This week in the news #48

Holder is quite likely a psychopath. It's certain he has no sense of irony or honor. He's the dude in charge of maintaining the most viciously racist, discriminatory domestic policies in the United States (cf "war on drugs"). His outstanding accomplishment to date is pursuing and defending the "state secrets" doctrine, as a means of covering up the torture of people who are the victims of a viciously racist foreign policy.

Neither of those count as bigotry, apparently, nor does he consider them acts of cowardice.
