This is the Optimism We’ve Been Waiting For

The Obama/Biden show is still only beginning.  From Obama’s tax deficient nominees to the vacant senate seat, we’re in for one heck of a ride.

In his first major speech since being confirmed, the nation’s first black attorney general told an overflow crowd celebrating Black History Month at the Justice Department the nation remains “voluntarily socially segregated.”

“Though this nation has proudly thought of itself as an ethnic melting pot, in things racial we have always been and continue to be, in too many ways, essentially a nation of cowards,” Holder declared.

Lets stop talking about race and actually just live together.  It seems everything is fine until these “racial crusaders” start talking about it.  Booker T. Washington dedicated much of his life to “putting your head down and going to work.”  Seems that a century later, many still want to talk and legislate “equality” as they see it, into the culture.

I look forward to the day when men are judged not by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.  I believe that day has arrived for many, and eludes others still stuck in the past.
