HOLDER: Whites Cant Be Victims of Racial Injustice Because They Havent Suffered Enough
March 2, 2011
Or, The Continuing Media Narrative of Acceptable Racism.
Dr. King once said, Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere. Apparently, US Attorney General Eric Holder didnt get the memo.
As reported and applauded by Politico, Holder announced Tuesday that he was fed up with listening to whining whites who claim the justice department deliberately blocks investigations of black on white racism. Predictably, the Establishment media sides with Holder.
Think about that,” Holder said. “When you compare what people endured in the South in the 60s to try to get the right to vote for African Americans, to compare what people subjected to that with what happened in Philadelphia, which was inappropriate .. .to describe it in those terms I think does a great disservice to people who put their lives on the line for my people,” said Holder, who is black.
Holder noted that his late sister-in-law, Vivian Malone Jones, helped integrate the University of Alabama.
“To compare that kind of courage, that kind of action, to say some Black Panther incident is of greater concern to us, historically, I think just flies in the face of history,” Holder said with evident exasperation.
So the obvious takeaway from this is that some racism is worse than others. Some racist injustice is worthy of prosecution, other racism is not. Apparently, whites simply havent suffered enough. They dont deserve legal protection. So, any injustices committed against white people should be swept under the rug. Its not worth Eric Holders time.
One might be shocked by the statements. One might even wonder why the media chooses not to attack Holder for his patently racist statements. After all, were a white man to suggest this, his career would be over in a hail of media machine-gun fire. Reporters would fall over themselves to attack him, and his family would be ruthlessly attacked in the community. His kids would have to stay home from school (assuming their teachers weren’t on strike, anyway), and hed get hate mail and death threats for decades.
But the Establishment Media’s lack of moral indignation isnt surprising. In America, its blasphemous to even suggest that whites could be victims of racial injustice.
Whites are the permanent oppressors in the mainstream media narrative, while all other races are the permanent victims. In fact, “white” and “oppressor” are essentially synonymous — meaning: whites are the bad guys. All whites have been lumped together and typecast in a bad reality TV show. Because whites as a group do not have clean hands, therefore, they are denied the right of seeking justice.
If that isn’t stereotyping, I don’t know what is.
The larger issue, of course, is that “whites as racists” constitutes the fundamental lens through which Holder views issues in America. During the healthcare debate, Holder likened opposition of Obamacare to opposition to civil rights. Not civil rights in the sense that, “all Americans share civil rights,” mind you, but “Civil Rights” as in the struggle for black legal equality in America during the 40’s-60’s. Translation: those who oppose Obamacare are racists. Such language is naked race-baiting and scapegoating. But Holder doesn’t care. Whites are the bad guy bogeymen, trotted out when it gets tough to pass legislation. And his recent comments reveal his paradigm: white Americans are generally racist and any time they oppose any Obama policy or “injustice” at the hands of a racist group, they’re either being racists or they’re simply not entitled to equal protection because they haven’t suffered as much as other groups.
Nobody is seeking to belittle the suffering of other people, here, but America seeks equality. This means equal protection under the law, not equality in historical racial suffering.
Holders statements are completely sadistic, and they betray his motives. He has a score to settle, and by his figure whites have a lot more suffering to endure before they have a right to expect justice from the Justice Department. Satisfying vendettas is for Mob Bosses, not the US Attorney General’s Office.
The Establishment medias silence regarding his racist statements demonstrates agreement and approval. Such hypocrisy. Such shame. Such racism.
What history book did HE read?
Holder is a criminal.
I pray that a future administration brings this racist communist thug to justice and puts him behind bars.
Holder is just not qualified to be in the position he is in.
Rat Face MoFo.
So....I guess we just convict mass murderers and turn a blind eye to those single-count amateur murderers...?
This means war.
It should be obvious to all we have a Klan of Black Racists in the white house.
I can tell you this much; that racist Holder is not welcome in my neighborhood.
This man can kiss my lilly white ass.
If Obama and Holder are around for four more years, I think we'll be even.
Sorry Mr Holder, the law is the law. You or Bammy DO NOT get to pick and choose.
I surprised one of the senators didn’t ask if that statement was his resignation.....
How many examples would Mr. Holder like of whites who HAVE recently suffered? Zimbabwe, anyone?
Holder is a divisive racist jackass.
So, to what extent would Holder take this?
Excusing violence? Rape?
Only a racist would say such a thing. According to him whites are due some additional injustices and only when they are enslaved is the score settled. Sounds to me like the black racist is declaring war on whites.
“we have a Klan of Black Racists in the white house.”
Look at that smug look on bammy’s face. I’d like to...well, you get my drift!
There's just no other word for him.
‘Zat so? My great grandparents, who came here from Ireland in the mid-1800s, would undoubtedly disagree. And how about the Chinese? I wonder how they feel about this idiot’s statement?
