at Racial Preferences


In the previous administration, America had two black secretaries of state. 
In this administration, we have a black president and a black attorney 
general. Yet, when these officials talk about race, rather than uniting the 
country, they seek to look backward. Our esteemed attorney general even 
called us a nation of cowards? Is he for real?

Despite President Obama's assertions that he's "moved beyond race," he was 
quick to throw in reminders in his campaign of his racial background... or 
at least half of it. These comments and the fact that race has been in the 
news lately reminded me of the fact that I'm as much of a "minority" as our 
fine president is. I'm also just as "white" as he is. But rather than 
embracing a particular ethnic "identity" and using it to score points, what 
I'm most proud of is being an American.
