Here is MSNBC political commentator Pat Buchanan’s response to Attorney General Eric Holder’s statement that America is a nation of “cowards” when it comes to discussing race:

Lecturing a conscript conclave of Justice Department bureaucrats, Attorney General Eric Holder last week called America a “nation of cowards” for not spending more time talking about race.

Reading his speech, however, one recalls the sage counsel of Pat Moynihan to President Nixon in 1970: This whole subject might benefit from a long period of “benign neglect.”
One point Holder did allude to, without specifics, was this:

“It is not safe for this nation to assume that the unaddressed social problems in the poorest parts of the country can be isolated and will not ultimately affect the larger society.”

Fair point. And what are some of those social problems?

A 70 percent illegitimacy rate in black America, an incarceration and crime rate seven times that of white America, a 50 percent dropout rate in many urban high schools, African-American graduates reading and computing on average at eighth-grade levels.Rather, he is upset that “on Saturdays and Sundays” we don’t go to church or hang out together. But why are the free associations of Americans, of whatever creed or color, any of Eric Holder or Big Brother’s business?

And about these problems what is the black leadership doing? Unlike Bill Cosby, the heroic Holder was virtually mute.

Having insulted us, perhaps Holder will start doing his own sworn duty. For one area where he has a lead role is enforcing the nation’s laws – in particular, the U.S. immigration laws. For the federal failure to enforce these laws is a contributory cause of one of those “unaddressed social problems in the poorest parts of the country.”

Case in point – rampant unemployment among minority youth.

According to the Center for Immigration Studies, among African-Americans 18 to 29 with only a high-school degree, unemployment is now 20 percent. Among black adults who do not have a high-school diploma, it is 24 percent. Among teenagers under 18, black unemployment is 30 percent.

Among native-born Hispanics with only a high-school diploma, the unemployment rate is 13.6 percent. Among high-school dropouts, 16 percent. Among Hispanic 16- and 17-year-olds, the jobless figure is 40 percent.

As these figures were compiled in December, before the last two months of sweeping layoffs, they surely understate the situation. And with both black and Hispanic dropout rates now reaching 50 percent in major cities, the social dynamite is piling up.

Last month, USA Today reported that the FBI estimates there are now 1 million gang members in the United States – up 200,000 from 2005 – and these gangs are responsible for 80 percent of all U.S. crimes.

From other studies, young Hispanics are 19 times as likely as white youth to join gangs, while African-Americans are 15 times.

These millions of teenagers, and unskilled and less-educated young adults with no jobs and little prospect of finding them, are recruiting pools for criminal gangs.

Who is getting the jobs for which these native-born black and Hispanic young could quality? Illegal aliens hold literally millions of them.

Last week, the CIS reported, “An estimated 6 to 7 million illegal immigrants are currently holding jobs. Prior research indicates they are overwhelmingly employed in lower-skilled and lower-paid jobs.”

Exactly what sort of jobs?

“Illegals are primarily employed in construction, building cleaning and maintenance, food preparation, service and processing, transportation and moving occupations and agriculture.”

With the exception of agriculture, a majority of the workers in these occupations are native-born Americans. Thus, illegal aliens are taking jobs Americans are not only willing to do, but are doing, and taking 7 million of these jobs from young Americans now out of work.

By failing to enforce U.S. immigration laws, the government of the United States is selling America’s working class down the river.

In addition to the 7 million illegals holding jobs, legal immigrants have another 15 million. In 2008, when Americans lost 3.5 million jobs, 144,000 immigrants were admitted every month.

Why do we have an open-borders immigration policy that annually allows in millions, legal and illegal, to compete for jobs, when 10 million Americans are out of work and half a million are losing their jobs every month? The political correctness and moral cowardice of our Lords Temporal, who refuse to call a time-out on immigration until our own people go back to work, is killing the American dream for millions.

According to the census, as reported in The New York Times on Saturday, 97 percent of immigrants from Mexico do not speak English at home. They are less skilled and less educated than the average American.

Says demographer William Frey, “The new immigration magnets especially in the Southwest are disproportionately attracting young Mexican men who are willing to accept low wages.”

What further proof is needed that mass immigration from the Third World is taking jobs from Americans and driving down their wages when they do find work?

Here is a problem more serious than whether black and white elites are getting together on weekends to gabble about race.

But, dealing with it, Mr. Holder, will take courage.

    The reason the wage is going down is beacuse tehy are willing to do what we Americans are too lazy or proud to do. So if they pay $10 an hour for digging up potatoes aer Americans looking for work going to get to digging? Nope cause they have too much pride. If you about to lose yoru house, you better grab some gloves, burlap bags and start singing them old spirtiuals.

    people would not need to migrate if american businesses were not taking over their countries and destroying their livelihoods. so businesses like Walmart can travel freely across borders for money and people can’t? I wish they would stop trying to divide black poor from immigrant poor. The reason we don’t have jobs is because 10% of the people own 90% of the wealth not because “immigrants are taking all our jobs.” Plus, they really were here first…

    As much as I abhor Pat Buchanan. He is absolutely right. Most Blacks in higher positions of authority are doing absolutely nothing to help those that are less fortunate.

    NACCP is too busy having funerals for the N-word while black people are self medicating with FOOD, liquar, and drugs. It absolutely sickened me at the amont of blacks I saw yesterday just out on the streets of Atl that are obese. When I am at the airport it hurt my shoulders just to have a 20lb carry on bag. I can’t imagine carrying 100lbs 24/7.

    Great post Bossip. I have never been a Pat Buchanan fan, but he succinctly points out how closely related our immigration and poverty issues are. The statistics regarding the education and employment of our youth continues to boggle the mind. Thanks for a great post.

  • The Sane One

    Look I don’t like this racist and those of his ilk, but I sometimes wonder what can really be said for the state of the community? They have so much ammunition. It’d be one thing if the majority of us were simply struggling against the system after doing our BEST as the elders were. Now we don’t even have a decent value system in place.

    Hey Re, whats going on pretty woman?

  • Come on People

    Yeah, I agree with jb_1030. If a drug dealer or the criminals in those gangs offer what seems to be an opportunity to make $2-3000 a week compaired to $10/hour which is $400/week, what do you think that many of these young black and hispanic men and women will take, especially if they are undereducated and unemployeed.

    I don’t understand the point of racing to see who can be “1st”. What do you do, wait on a post just to add a comment before you can even read it??? Anyway, I digress….I could care less about what white people think of me (or other minorities, for that matter). However, I am concerned that black parents and community/political leaders can’t seem to keep a large percentage of our youth from dropping out of school and becoming a burden to society. WE have to figure that out…We do not need white America to be our “friends” for us to realize that we have a duty to look out for our own best interest, just as they have done all these years. Black people are too concerned about white America when most of white america could care less about our issues. It saddens me that a Mexican immigrant comes to this country and is willing to work hard anywhere that is willing to give him/her a chance but a young black man thinks that certain jobs are beneath him and would rather sell crack to his own people (destroying his own community in the process)! It’s time to wake up people! I will get off my soap box now!

  • workin' my nerves

    This is totally off topic, but why did this white guy just say to me he wanted me to be his “Obama Mama.” Rather than being flattered, I was greatly offended. Had to give him the side-eye treatment.

    You pretty much sum up how I feel about the situation, I want to add that we as a people also need to quit worrying about getting along with and how we are viewed by others, and focus on us and our own communities.
