With a contempt of Congress charge still hanging over his head, and direct involvement several Obama administration scandals, embattled Attorney General Eric Holder still found time to sit down with ABC News’ senior Justice correspondent and sycophant Pierre Thomas in London to reiterate his charge that America is still “afraid” of racial issues and still a “nation of cowards.”
Holder also believes that racism is behind any criticisms aimed at President Obama or himself, especially among those that say they want to take the country back, despite the fact that he is a powerful black politician.
Thomas brought up Holder’s controversial speech from 2009 in which he called America a “nation of cowards.”
“I wouldn’t walk away from that speech,” the former 1960s black nationalist radical said. “I think we are still a nation that is too afraid to confront racial issues. You know, we had the Sterling incident, you have what that rancher said. Those are opportunities for us to engage with one another across the color line and talk about racial issues and we too infrequently do that.”
