“Americans still self-segregate on the weekends and in their private lives”
so said the Attorney General to in a speech to Justice Dept. employees commemorating Black History month. The Attorney General is the top law enforcement officer in our country. You would think he would be smart enough to realize; A) private means PRIVATE and B) that he sounded like a reverse racist when he said America is a “Nation of Cowards” on race matters.
He said he was inspired to give this speech because of BO’s speech when he threw the Rev. under the bus next to Gramma. Did it ever occur to him that maybe the reason we are segregated in our private lives is we don’t want Jeremiah Wright’s philosophy in our homes and lives. Everyone raved about what a great speech BO made on March 18, 2008. And BO swore he could no more disown the Reverend Wright than he could his own grandmother. Six weeks later when the Reverend resurfaced at the National Press Club in Washington, BO pitched him under the bus. Why did he wait 6 weeks to renounce the Rev. and his “racist and divisive views?” He waited because he thought his mea culpa of March 18 had been swallowed and the issue was dead. But when polls started to show that the good Reverend’s rantings and ravings were starting to gore BO’s ox, on April 29, 2008 he jettisoned the Rev.
And the Attorney General has the temerity to call America a “Nation of Cowards?” His boss is a coward, who only took a FIRM stand on Reverend Wright’s brand of racism when it was in his boss’s best interest and not a moment before. The hypocrisy expressed at the top of the new administration has trickled down.
One final thought, when is Italian History Month, or Scottish History Month, or Anglo Saxon History Month?
