U.S. Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. has scolded Americans for being "cowards" and not talking more about race. Now Mr. Holder is getting that "dialogue" with the recent controversy surrounding President Obama's Supreme Court nominee, Judge Sonia Sotomayor.

Most of the furor surrounds statements on race by Judge Sotomayor herself: "I would hope that a wise Latina woman with the richness of her experiences would more often than not reach a better conclusion than a white male who hasn't lived that life."

Judge Sotomayor was clear enough. In a broad discussion about sex/race discrimination cases and their history, she said judges' ethnicity and gender make them better or worse at what they do.
