Attorney General Eric Holder encouraged Americans not to forget race while working for justice and equality in their country.

“As it stands, our society is not yet color blind -- nor should it be -- given the disparities that still afflict and divide us.” Holder explained, “We must be color brave, and we must never forget that all are made better and more prosperous if all are given equal opportunities.”

Holder made his remarks during a speech at Howard University on Tuesday for the 50th Anniversary Celebration of the Civil Rights Act.

“We must take into account not only the considerable steps forward we’ve seen over the last 50 years, but the entirety of the experience that people of color have faced,” he said, calling for Americans to “talk frankly about inequality” in order to eradicate it.

Holder called on Congress to update the housing and lending laws to cover sexual orientation and gender as well as strengthening workplace protections.

More protections, he explained, would help America become a “more perfect Union.” Holder added:

Quote
That, at its core, is what defines us as Americans: a people born of revolution and tested by civil war. A nation founded on equality but built by those in chains. A country first imagined, centuries ago, by imperfect people driven by a near-perfect vision – a vision conceived by patriots who dared to reach beyond themselves and defended later by activists who fought for equal justice – and who challenge us, even today, to make this promise real.

At least he admits it. Now, if only someone would call him out on it—this is a blatant, transparent attempt to provoke a race war in America.

Yes, folks, it's possible for a person to live by their own moral standards. Not every good Christian is a hypocrite.

So whitey was imperfect; no put down intended I'm sure.  He's not color brave since he blames everything on cracker.  And it was blacks who built this country, not whites, just like Obama said.  And he wants Americans to talk about inequality, which is negative (like diversity) instead of equality.  In this he is trying to put guilt on white people.  In fact, he sees everything through the prism of his black glasses. :bullie smokin:
"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."

I rather be color blind.. Isn't that MLK wanted in the first place?
GOP House members came to Paul Ryan to be Speaker. He didn't come to them. And he was everybody's conservative darling back in 2012. So unless 1 of the remaining 240 wants to step up & do a better job in budgeting & negotiations & herding the party cats, then everybody please STFU. You go to battle with the army you have, not the one you want but don't have.

The current racist regime doesn't give a rip about MLK, nor his dream.

They want to hate whites, and they're trying to make us hate all of them.

I refuse to comply.
Character still matters.  It always matters.

May 3, 2016 - the day the Republican party left ME.  I am now without a Party, and quite possibly without a country.  May God have mercy!

Racism is the new Equality.
Liberalism isn't really about making the world a better place. It's about reassuring the elites that they are good people for wanting to rule over it.

I have no doubt that if Holder could have every white person rounded up and shot, he would do it in an instant.
