Kudos to Mayor Elizabeth Goreham and professor Jack Matson for giving lie to Attorney General Eric Holder’s absurd claim that we are nation of cowards when it comes to discussing race in our United States of America (Dec. 9 letter).
History will not look kindly on our first African-American attorney general (nor our senators who confirmed the landshark responsible for the pardons of Marc Rich and the FALN terrorists at the end of Bill Clinton’s presidency), but, contrary to Democratic Party talking points, not every bad outcome for blacks is the result of systemic racism.
Reps. Glenn Thompson and John Boehner conspire with President Barack Obama to fund amnesty for millions of low-skilled illegal immigrants who will compete directly with black and brown American citizens for scarce entry-level jobs and public services, but not even Leonard Pitts would claim that is part of white America’s war on black bodies.
Sometimes a thug dies not because of the color of his skin, but because he’s a thug. And sometimes our rulers in Washington betray their oaths to our Constitution, to the detriment of all citizens, because they are our rulers.
