Skip to comments.Hey, Eric Holder: Meet My People
Posted on 03/05/2011 2:11:15 PM PST by Hojczyk
My fellow Americans, who are your people? I ask because U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder, who is black, used the phrase my people in congressional testimony this week. It was an unmistakably color-coded and exclusionary reference intended to deflect criticism of the Obama Justice Departments selective enforcement policies. It backfired.
In pandering to skin-deep identity politics and exacerbating race-consciousness, Holder has given the rest of us a golden opportunity to stand up, identify our people and show the liberal poseurs what post-racialism really looks like.
Herman Cain is my people. Hes my brother-in-arms. Ive never met him. But we are family. We are kin because we are unhyphenated Americans who are comfortable in the black, brown and yellow skin we are in. We are growing in numbers on college campuses, in elected office, on the Internet, on radio airwaves, everywhere. And that drives liberals mouth-frothing crazy.
Cain is the successful Georgia businessman who has wowed audiences across the country with his passion for free markets, free minds and the American Dream. The former president of Godfathers Pizza and forceful tea party speaker happens to be black. So he must pay the price that all minority conservatives in public life must pay. As I noted last week, a cowardly liberal writer recently derided Cain as a monkey in the window, a garbage pail kid and a minstrel who performs for his masters.
Race traitors. Whores. Sellouts. House Niggas. Self-haters. Ive heard it for nearly 20 years in public life. Every outspoken minority conservative has. Sticks and stones may break our bones, but these spiteful epithets cant enslave us.
Val Prieto is my people. A fierce, freedom-loving American blogger of Cuban descent, he rejects race-card games and refuses to be lumped in with Hispanic ethnic grievance-mongers.

Brava and thank you, Michelle.
I want to upload an mp3 of a rush caller from 2007 “if we don’t take america back they gonna kill us man”.
Where can I upload an MP3?
Between the refusal to defend DOMA and these civil rights violations, it should be clear that Obama and Holder are unfit to serve the Country due to their prejudicial behavior and decisions.
and here's a whole BUNCH of MY un-hyphenated PEOPLE
My prediction: the RACIST democrats are gong to have a terrible time in election 2012...
their RACE CARD is maxed out - overdrawn - and they are piling up penalties. They'll be all but speechless without the RACE CARD.
Why cannot he be removed?
Certainly, long before now, had a white AG made the comparable attestations, he would have been hanging by the yardarm long ago.
This is blatantly illegal.
Why isn't Congress moving to remove him?
Honkeys for Herman!
We also have rules, this is a Malkin column. :)
Herman is my people too ping :)
THAT’S “my people”... they’re conservatives.
I’m a Palin guy, but damn, that would make a GREAT bumper sticker.
“Honkeys for Herman!”-—post of the day.
She is one of my favorite tigers. Beauty, brains, sexy, patriot, tough... she’s got it all.
I’m guessing I should go in production then...
“My People” might be well represented by the picture of the Mall taken from the Washington Monument on 8/28/10 (a/k/a the Beck rally).
