Standing by His Words

Holder said he would not walk back on a controversial Black History Month speech delivered in 2009, in which he called the U.S. a "nation of cowards" on the subject of race. "I think we are still a nation that is too afraid to confront racial issues," he said, and too rarely takes the time to engage "one another across the color line [to] talk about racial issues."
