Skip to comments.Race high on agenda of Holder's Justice Dept.

President Obama declined to make race a central theme of his campaign, but the man he tapped as the country's top law enforcement officer is making it clear that race relations will be a priority.
In a speech last week, Attorney General Eric Holder called America a "nation of cowards" when it comes to discussing race, a statement applauded by civil rights leaders.
"The civil rights community now has a partner in the Justice Department rather than an adversary," said Robert Rubin, legal director for the Lawyers' Committee for Civil Rights in San Francisco.

Incompetent, racist, POS
Holder led the collectivist charge on individual RKBA at the Supreme Court. Fortunately, we won that one.
Actually, I agree entirely with his assessment that America is a nation of cowards on the subject of race. Just not in the way he meant.
“Incompetent, racist, corrupt, POS “
Incompetent, racist, corrupt, left wing, POS
And the list grows longer.
That’s not a black man ... that’s a white dude with a big nose and a crappy attitude.
Good news for organizations like “Mother’s Against Mandatory Minimums” and other nut-case organizations which argue there are too many blacks in prison. Mr. Holder needs to find the courage to face the FBI crime statistics, which, last I saw them, indicated a propensity to murder, by blacks (and typically with victims of their own race) at a rate 7-8x that of whites.
“Attorney General Eric Holder called America a “nation of cowards” when it comes to discussing race”
Does he even comprehend how many non-blacks voted for a black President?
Perhaps there are “cowards” because if you say the wrong thing, the NAACP and Sharpton will be on you like white on rice.
When you look at it like that, it’s not really cowardly; it’s smart self-preservation.
But does anyone expect Holder to grasp the subteties?
How to solve the race issue? Stop talking about it- Morgan Freeman...
Whites commit far more murders than blacks, they just aren't arrested or convicted. /s
President Obama declined to make race an overt, central theme of his campaign, but he didn’t need to. White women, white liberals, and white moderates did. They all raced to the polls to vote for him to prove their lack of any shred of any vestige of any racial feeling to themselves, and to the Northeastern, liberal media-and-academia, and to Europe.
Like Bill Clinton, Vice President Biden former VP candidate Geraldine Ferraro all said, “A polite, non-ghetto, black man - he’s home free.”
Perhaps Holder’s language is a code describing the filling of the justice department with blacks, a great increase in suits compelling individuals and businesses to hire and promote blacks over more qualified whites. He certainly does not mean a frank discussion about race. A frank discussion about race is the last thing any black wants. However, even more terrifying to the “black community” would be action involving the termination of set asides and other Equal Opportunity games. No the meaning of this turkey’s words do not involve a “discussion” about race.
So what? Holder's job is not to get us talking about "our feelings", it's to be chief law enforcement officer.
Obama seeks to be seen as ‘presidential’. Holder gets to speak for him on race.
I can’t take 4 years of this crap.
applauded by civil rights leaders. 1st warning
Incompetent, racist, corrupt, POS”
This is a good description of Holder.
What possible description could Holder give to Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton with their many years of blackmailing large corporations for lots of money by threatening ‘boycotts’ of products???
Those 2 are cowards, IMO.
Mr. Holder needs to find the courage to face the FBI crime statistics, which, last I saw them, indicated a propensity to murder, by blacks (and typically with victims of their own race) at a rate 7-8x that of whites.’
BUT BUT!! That would be admitting that blacks just cannot and will not behave and set themselves responsible for their out of control actions.
The laws on the books of the USA have been passed by both blacks and white.
Blacks just don’t seem to recognise that those laws apply to them just the same.
Your statistics give me more reason why I avoid blacks as much as I possible can.
