Fox's Kooiman: Holder Should Have Used Speech To Tell Black Men To Be Fathers, Not Baby Daddies

They just can't stop themselves from blowing the dog whistles over at Faux "news."

The yappers on Sunday's Fox & Friends are apparently very upset with Attorney General Eric Holder for discussing the topic of racism during his commencement speech at Morgan State University over the weekend, with cohost Anna Kooiman opining that he didn't spend his time lecturing black men about how to be better fathers and not baby daddies.

These people just can't stop themselves.

ANNA KOOIMAN: So Condoleezza Rice speaking in a very uplifting fashion there. If Eric Holder didn't want to do that why didn't he have some sort of call to action or something instead. Rather than hammering down on zero tolerance policies and calling those racist. Why didn't he have a call of action for African-American fathers to actually be fathers and not be baby daddys and -- and --take care of their kids and be good stewards in the community? Why didn't he talk about something like that instead?

Can you help us out?
