"President Obama has chided his attorney general, Eric H. Holder Jr., for describing America as a “nation of cowards” when discussing race, wading into a tumult that flared over Mr. Holder’s indictment of the way this country talks about ethnicity."-----------
"“our attorney general is black, both major parties are led by black men, the president is black.”
“And yet,” Mr. Tawney wrote, “we’re apparently a ‘nation of cowards’ on race.”"
