I just got off the phone (as a constituent) with the Washington, DC office of freshman US Senator Kay Hagan (D-NC).
I asked a simple question:Â “Given the fact that Sen. Hagan voted to confirm Attorney General Holder added to his comments yesterday calling America a “nation of cowards”, and given the fact that if I dare speak about race in the workplace, I’d be fired under current employment laws….. Does Senator Hagan think I — an ordinary American — am a coward?”
The poor dude who answered the phone sputtered, then said he “figured she would not agree with Holder’s statement”.Â But then put me on hold and after about 3 minutes came back with:Â “Let me take your address so we can send you a response to Holder’s nomination since Sen. Hagan still has to answer a lot of letters about the subject.”
I don’t know, it is a pretty simple question:Â Senator Hagan — do you think I’m a coward?
