That is an interesting article. As for Eric Holder claiming Americans are "cowards" for not talking about race more, I completely disagree. I think we don't talk about race as much because it's less of an issue to most of us.
Personally, I don't care what color a person is. I only care how they act and treat others. I'll talk about that. I'll call someone an a-hole if they act like one. I'll call someone a nice person if they're nice. Color means nothing. Talking about it will just bring up more racial tensions. Let it go and act like it doesn't mean anything - because it doesn't.
As far as the "Privilege" part of the article, I don't really get that either. I don't agree with decisions being made based on race. It shouldn't happen regardless of which color is being favored.
