WASHINGTON -- The nation's first black attorney general is defending Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid over racial remarks about Barack Obama during the 2008 presidential campaign.
Eric Holder tells The Associated Press that Reid is a good man, and as Holder put it: "I don't think that there is a prejudiced bone in his body."

Good boy. Nice to see he’s staying on the plantation.
Watching the black Dems go full-retard to try and protect Dirty Harry over the next year will be awesome. Yes, they really do think minority voters are that stupid. Thanks for proving it, Eric.
If Holder had defended a republican or even been supportive of a republican, he would be called an uncle tom.
One question: why is it that the apparent majority still believes that the Republicans are responsible for this mess?
Can't possibly be.
He kisses Barry's butt every damn day...
Mr Holder speaks up as a loyal light skinned man with no negro dialect unless he chooses
Maybe school kids are getting a message- you can’t change yor skin color (well, unless you are Micheal Jackson) but you can and should learn to turn the ebonics and dialect stuff off and on to get ahead-
Just sayin’ ....
I don’t think that there is a prejudiced bone in his body...
did he say anything about himself?
Just another Democrat with a soiled diaper. I smell change in the air.
Reid stirs the racist pot and the true racists come to his rescue. Alinsky.
doesn’t he have a couple of black panthers that he should be giving more attention to?
...and ten cent ceegars for the a-dults !
ask Harry how many Blacks in his Church?
From the person that believes that Islamic terrorist’s rights supercede the safety of American citizens.
That would be a start.
“One question: why is it that the apparent majority still believes that the Republicans are responsible for this mess?”
Freepers tend to minimize the MSM because we have alternate sources, but the bottom line is, the MSM still has a lot of influence in what Americans think. There was a recent poll, around 60% of Americans plan to keep informed using TV news as their source of information.
The MSM has more responsiblity for our current mess, and the ultimate communization of American than any other single entity. But there is blame enough to go around.
"Well," my neighbor said, "It's not too surprising. This is what happens when you elect an incompetent, inexperienced, moron to be president. And here we are, still paying for it 8 years later!"
Did I mention that I live in MA?
AG Holder: US A “Nation Of Cowards” On Race
how many whites were in Obama’s Writghts church?
top to bottom, front to back this thing is a dirty farce.
Atta “boy” Eric. Massa been good to you. Don’t talk bad about massa.
...classic...a high yellow defending Reid’s remarks about another high yellow.
That's because Harry Reid is a spineless worm.
Now we have to wonder just how much that light skin and ability to speak got Holder’s job too. It sure can’t be because of his ‘justice’ and fairness.
The Dems can add repulsive and disgusting to the list of their already known traits.

Can Harry Read?
For no apparent reason, Sen. Harry Reid of Nevada, the Democrats’ new leader, is denouncing Justice Clarence Thomas. Here’s an exchange from Tim Russert’s interview with him on “Meet the Press” yesterday:
Russert: Let me turn to judicial nominations. Again, Harry Reid on National Public Radio, Nov. 19: “If they”—the Bush White House—”for example, gave us Clarence Thomas as chief justice, I personally feel that would be wrong. If they give us Antonin Scalia, that’s a little different question. I may not agree with some of his opinions, but I agree with the brilliance of his mind.”
Could you support Antonin Scalia to be chief justice of the Supreme Court?
Reid: If he can overcome the ethics problems that have arisen since he was selected as a justice of the Supreme Court. And those ethics problems—you’ve talked about them; every people talk—every reporter’s talked about them in town—where he took trips that were probably not in keeping with the code of judicial ethics. So we have to get over this. I cannot dispute the fact, as I have said, that this is one smart guy. And I disagree with many of the results that he arrives at, but his reason for arriving at those results are very hard to dispute. So—
Russert: Why couldn’t you accept Clarence Thomas?
Reid: I think that he has been an embarrassment to the Supreme Court. I think that his opinions are poorly written. I don’t—I just don’t think that he’s done a good job as a Supreme Court justice.
well he could have at least two if Obummer would just pick one
Democrats’ Immunity From Accountability
By Michael Costello | 02/01/09
I can’t help but wonder how a Republican Senate majority leader would have been treated by the mainstream news media if he had made it clear he didn’t want no coloreds appointed to fill the Illinois U.S. Senate seat recently vacated by Barack Obama. According to Illinois’ impeached Gov. Rod Blagojevich, D, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid , D, called to ask that the governor not appoint any of the leading African-American candidates seeking that seat.
Reid revealed himself as a soulmate of Pennsylvania Gov. Fast Eddie Rendell, D, who argued during last year’s Democratic presidential primary that conservative Democrats might not vote for a darkie. Reid worried that labor union Democrats would recoil from a candidate with a name like “Jesse Jackson Jr.” in the 2010 election and the Democrats would lose that seat.
Of course, if those racist union members were to see and hear videotape of former Clinton Administration Labor Secretary Robert B. Reich, D, and Rep. Charles Rangel, D-N.Y., trying to formulate the Democrats’ economic stimulus plan in such a way that the money would not benefit “white construction workers,” it wouldn’t matter who the Democrat fielded as a candidate. But, the media are in protection mode and if you want to see the clip of exchange, you’ll have to use YouTube
“Massa’s In De Cold Ground”
S. F. after the manner of Eric Holder
Round de meadows am a ringing de peoples’ mournful song
While de mockingbird am singing happy as de day am long.
Where de ivy am a creeping o’er de grassy mound,
Dare old massa am a sleeping, sleeping in de cold, cold ground.
Down in de cornfield hear dat mournful sound
All de people am a weeping mass’s in de cold, cold ground.
When de autumn leaves were falling
When de days were cold
Twas hard to hear old massa calling
Cause he was so weak and old.
Now de orange tree am blooming on de sandy shore
Now de summer days am coming
Massa nebber calls no more.
Massa made de people lub him,
Cause he was so kind,
Now dey sadly weep above him,
Mourning cause he leave dem behind.
I cannot work before tomorrow,
Cause de tear drops flow,
I try to drive away my sorrow
Pickin on de old banjo.
I would agree with the AG on this. The brain is not a bone, neither is the tongue.
Who axed Holder?
And if Harry Reid were a Republican, Mr. AG? What would you be saying then?
I always knew Dingy Harry was spineless.
Garde la Foi, mes amis! Nous nous sommes les sauveurs de la République! Maintenant et Toujours!
(Keep the Faith, my friends! We are the saviors of the Republic! Now and Forever!)
LonePalm, le Républicain du verre cassé (The Broken Glass Republican)
The virus of affirmative action is destroying this country, but it started with Ubama getting elected thanks in large part to liberal white guilt. From there you get the incompetent dregs of affirmative action, like Holder.
Do your job, Holder, you frakin idiot.
Nobody gives a crap about your thoughts on this or your libtard twisted political views either.
Good one ...
Holder sure doesn’t know Dirty Harry very well, does he?

They also need to learn to pronounce the work: ASK.
Though this nation has proudly thought of itself as an ethnic melting pot, in things racial, we have always been, and we, I believe, continue to be, in too many ways, a nation of cowards, - Eric Holder
Steppin’ and fetchin’ for Harry. Talk about demeaning.
How’s things down on the plantation, Eric?
A few years ago the black community activists would not accept a slur followed by a, “ some of my best friends are black.”
