Holder’s People have Moslem names because their mamas thought it sounded African-y, not because most of them are Moslem.

That trend began in the 1960s when Cassius Clay change his name to Mohammed Ali to avoid being drafted citing religious grounds. However, he was arrested and convicted of draft evasion. The Supreme Court overthrew the decision. After that many other black athletes began changing their names, too. Lou Alcindor became Kareem Abdul Jabar, etc.

Louis Farrakhan started his rabble rousing and then Islam became a protest movement. That is what we are seeing the continuation of today.
