Cowards because we don't talk about our "racial problems"? ..
Asians don't need to sit down and discuss their Asianness..
Latino's don't need to sit down and discuss their Latinoness
Whites don't need to sit down and discuss their Whiteness..
So why do black constantly need to remind everyone else and themselves that they are Black, and must discuss this fact?
There must be a psychological term for such behaviors...
I don't think that's what he's getting at. Everyone knows what nationality they are without being reminded. The irony is that this nation is referred to as the "Great American Melting Pot" and yet we all tend to stick together with people of our own race instead of mixing together, even today. What could it be other than cowardice or outright apathy that keeps us from addressing the issue of why this happens?

Even when people mix at the workplace or afterwork social events, Holder argued, many Americans in their free time are still segregated inside what he called "race-protected cocoons." "Saturdays and Sundays, America in the year 2009 does not in some ways differ significantly from the country that existed almost 50 years ago. This is truly sad," said Holder.
"We ask you to help us work for that day when black will not be asked to get in back, when brown can stick around. When yellow will be mellow, when the red man can get ahead, man; and when white will embrace what is right.
