Why we can't talk about race

"[T]he need to confront our racial past and to understand our racial present, and to understand the history of African people in this country -- that all endures. . . . Though race-related issues continue to occupy a significant portion of our political discussion, and though there remain many unresolved racial issues in this nation, we, average Americans, simply do not talk enough with each other about things racial."
-- Eric Holder

Let's start with the fact that some "talk . . . about things racial" is privileged and celebrated, whereas other "talk . . . about things racial" is streng verboten. Also, let's talk about the fact that liberals are absolutely humorless and vindictive douchebags. Or better yet, let's don't talk about it at all, because I'm tired of talking about it, and would never introduce the topic except that it seems to be just about the only thing that liberals want to talk about while they hand each other million-dollar "genius" grants and congratulate themselves on how morally superior they are.

Bite me, Eric Holder, you corrupt thug.

Michelle Malkin has more.

UPDATE: ". . . aside from the occasional insinuation that McCain’s a bigot . . ." No, not me -- this time.

UPDATE II: Lorie Byrd has an interesting reaction. She also has an interesting photo of Beyonce. NTTATWWT. (Wait a minute -- is that Beyonce or Mariah? Eh, who cares? You've seen one diva, you've seen 'em all.)

UPDATE III: Linked by Kathy Shaidle, who informs me that her "tolerant" enemies consider her very existence a human-rights violation.

UPDATE IV: Eric Holder slanders America

UPDATE V: More courageous conversation!


  1. I can talk about all things race because I have this:

  2. Y, let's start by talking about what Geraldine Ferraro said, how if Obama was a white guy he would've been out of the race by March.

  3. *** those gay retards if they can't take a joke, eh?

  4. Please, don't hold back for our sakes. Tell us how you really feel, lol.

    Bag o'douche is the best descriptor for Progressives and today, Holder is their leader.

  5. i really love this faux outrage because it really is a self-fulfilling prophecy of sorts...
    There is, as usual on the part of Retalibans, a knee-jerk reaction to Holder's statement.
    Cons seem to think that those remarks are aimed at whites/conservatives when there is nothing in the statement to suggest that. In fact, Holder's statement is as much an indictment of African-Americans as it is of others. But it is funny to see Retalibans get bent out of shape over this.A little sensitive, are we? Or is this another non-issue that you guys will try to run with for lack of anything else to talk about?

  6. Holder is daring us to be disagreeable. Very well, I accept. The Left ideal in race conversation is White self abnegation. I say it's spinach and to hell with it. Or, to put it another way, what's in it for us? The left openly advocates society as a mosaic of distinct ethnic, racial and religious interest groups. OK Eric, where is my interest specifically as a Caucasian in all this? How do Whites benefit from affirmative action? How does my race benefit from hate crime laws. What does the Civil Rights Division do for me? As a leftist you see these things from a materialist perspective. Fine, how am I as member of the majority race, materially better for the three ring circus of race preference we live in now. And why would i want more of it?

  7. One reason why talking about race relations will never improve is because the moment a white person opens their mouth. That fat bastard of a cock holster Al Sharpton will drive over his own mom on his way to get a news camera to cry out racist.

    even if it's something as benign as a cartoon of a dead chimp when a dead chimp made the news a couple of days before.

    When that fat fuck, Al Sharpton, screams from his bullhorn 'racist' at a drop of a hat, why even bother to try to have a productive conversation?

    (yes, I'm sure someone *coff* will call me racist because I called Al Sharpton a fat fuck. be being so obtuse and not realize he is contributing to the division)
