Black History Month: Honoring Eric Holder

JUST TODAY, Eric Holder was confirmed by a Senate vote of 75-21 and has become the first Black Attorney General in the history of the United States. In many ways, his confirmation could be even more impactful than the election of President Obama. A Department of Justice that actually prosecutes civil rights violations against people of color?

Now that's change we can believe in.

What an appropriate beginning to Black History Month.
