Eric Holder: US still a nation of cowards on race
The Daily Caller ^ | 24 Jan 2014 | Neil Munro

Posted on 01/24/2014 7:42:02 AM PST by mandaladon

Attorney General Eric Holder reiterated his 2009 claim that Americans are a “nation of cowards” on racial issues on Thursday.

Holder’s effort to profile the entire nation as cowards came during a friendly interview with the University of Virginia’s Miller Center, where was asked if he would take back his 2009 remarks.

“I would not take that back,” he replied.

Attorney General Eric Holder reiterated his 2009 claim that Americans are a “nation of cowards” on racial issues on Thursday.

Holder’s effort to profile the entire nation as cowards came during a friendly interview with the University of Virginia’s Miller Center, where was asked if he would take back his 2009 remarks.

“I would not take that back,” he replied.

As usual, Holder did not brave questions from the audience or from other reporters in the room.

In 2009, Holder claimed that “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, essentially a nation of cowards.”

“Certain subjects are off-limits and that to explore them risks at best embarrassment, and at worst, the questioning of one’s character,” he told his agency employees at an event celebrating Black History Month.

In the Miller Center interview, Holder acknowledged that there is less racism now that half a century ago.

“We’re certainly do a lot better than we did,” he said, but then outlined his agenda of using his legal clout to equalize outcomes for selected racial groups in the U.S. “There are disproportionately negative impacts that we see on people of color, on women,” he said.

During his tenure, Holder has greatly expanded the range of race-related lawsuits filed against companies, schools and governments.

In June, a poll by NBC and the Wall Street Journal reported that only 52 percent of whites and 38 percent of blacks have a favorable opinion of race relations in the country. That’s a sharp drop from the beginning of Obama’s first term, when 79 percent of whites and 63 percent of blacks held a favorable view of American race relations..................I guess Holder is not improving race relations.

I guess the only fix for that is a race war.

Holder’s boss, President Barack Obama, recently told The New Yorker that he supported a reform of marijuana laws, partly because many Africans Americans have been jailed for violating those laws......................I guess we could also apply that logic to other crimes crimes committed by minorities.

Do cowards go to HBCUs because they are afraid of competing among the broader population?

Maybe we wouldn’t be “cowardly” about discussing issues if liberals/minorities weren’t so quick to recharacterized them as racial issues, i.e., play the race card.

In his new book, "Extortion," author Peter Schweitzer writes about Obozo and Holder, using the Justice Dept and assorted govt agencies to extort Big Money ....threatening jailtime unless the targets fork over billions. Read on.

US ‘robs’ $13B from venerable bank / By Mark DeCambre, Oct 19, 2013

JPMorgan Chase has tentatively agreed to pay (Holder's) Dept of Justice a record $13 billion settlement to resolve several civil probes — a costly deal that still doesn’t protect the bank against additional criminal prosecutions.

“This is a basic and fundamental attack on capitalism,” declared Dick Bove, an influential bank analyst at Rafferty Capital. “It is possible that the government is taking away the property of the JPMorgan shareholders without the shareholders having committed any crime or having any say in the expropriation of these funds.” The deal also includes an undisclosed sum to settle a civil suit brought by NY state AG.

Under the settlement, JPMorgan must continue to cooperate with federal investigators probing the banking giant’s issuance of mortgage-backed securities from 2005 to 2007, according to sources.

Still to be ironed out are how to resolve that criminal investigation, along with the wording of any admissions of culpability the feds might require.

The general terms of the settlement deal were forged Friday in a phone conversation between Attorney General Eric Holder and JPMorgan CEO Jamie Dimon, The WSJ reported.

Analysts called the settlement a raw deal given that, by JPMorgan’s own estimate, some 80 percent of its mortgage-backed securities had been acquired at the request of the Obama-led government, when it bought Bear Stearns and Washington Mutual in 2008. “Ultimately, the earnings power of banks is being force-regulated out the (SEC), by the Department of Justice,” Kass added.

The settlement sum includes $4 billion that JPMorgan agreed this month to pay the Federal Housing Finance Agency to resolve allegations that the bank misled mortgage-finance companies Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac about the quality of loans it sold them prior to the 2008 financial crisis, the Journal reported.

==============================================

The twisted deranged progressive mind at work. As a community organizer, Obozo sued banks to give out mtges to the underemployed----food stamps and SSI were considered "income." Now, as president, he's suing the same banks for predator lending---burdening the ne'er do well with mtges they can't possibly pay off.

===============================================

Where are the bank lawyers? Why aren't they looking into falsified mtges, aided and abetted by a Congressional committee?

==============================================

OBOZO/HOLDER COVER-UP massive mtge fraud perpetrated by the Congressional Hispanic Caucus

SUB-PRIME MORTGAGE SCAMS--MASSIVE LATINO MORTGAGE FRAUD ON CAPITOL HILL:

The Congressional Hispanic Institute, Inc, is an entity organized by Cong Joe Baca (D-Cali) in his capacity as head of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus.

Cong Baca created "HOGAR" (Spanish for home) in 2003 to work with the mortgage industry, F/M, lenders, banks and latino community groups to increase mortgage lending to what savvy observers consider to be unqualified Latinos.

"HOGAR" colluded w/ Cong Baca in what was to become a massive bilking of taxpayers. Cong Baca calculatedly hyped the fact that the national Latino homeownership rate was 47%, compared with 68% for the overall population.

HOGAR was coached to call the figure "alarming," and to say "a concerted effort was required to ensure that by the end of the decade Latinos will share equally in the American Dream of home ownership."

HOGAR and Cong Baca conned the public, failing to note that most of the "dreamers" were illegals, citizens of Third World countries who had violated US borders.

Predictably, HOGAR colluded w/ co-conspirators which included:

(a) shaky mortgage companies that ran into big trouble;

(b) Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, both now under federal control after billions in taxpayer bailouts;

(c) Countrywide Financial Corp., sold to Bank of America Corp;

(d) Washington Mutual Inc., taken over by the US government and sold to J.P. Morgan Chase & Co.; and,

(e) New Century Financial Corp. and Ameriquest Mortgage Corp, both now defunct, killed by defaulted subprime Latino mortgages.

HOGAR's ties to the subprime mortgage industry were substantial. Bribery and self-dealing were rampant:

<><> Companies that donated $150,000 to Cong Baca got the right to have their own research fellow who would conduct fraudulent studies, which were cunningly used by industry lobbyists to pump lending.

<><> Bribery and extortion in the form of $100,000 annual donations to Cong Baca, for which HOGAR provided phony news releases from Cong Baca's Hispanic Caucus promoting a lender's commercial products to the Latino market,

<><> The most shocking example of bribery well- substantitated by Hogar's literature..... HOGAR announced it worked with Freddie Mac on a self-serving two-year examination of Latino homeownership in 63 congressional districts.

The "study" found Hispanic ownership on the rise thanks to "new flexible mortgage loan products" that the industry was adopting at the urging of Cong Baca's collusive coterie.

<><> HOGAR conned lenders into even more lenient down-payment and underwriting standards.

<><> As the subprime debacle unfolded, HOGAR declined repeated requests for comment despite the economic havoc their activities precipitated.

The mortgage schemes demonstrated the criminal activities of border violators with multiple identities---perhaps violent, terrorist-connected foreigners---colluding and conspiring to defraud private companies and public entities. And mortgage racketeering enterprises which employed sub rosa finance and business practices to carry out deceptions and frauds.

The alleged ring of swindlers---a Congresman, individuals with multiple identities, banks, insurance companies, mortgage brokers--might be charged with cheating the US govt, taxpayers and bank share holders out of hundreds of millions of dollars via an elaborate web of mortgage and bank frauds.

The mortgage Dreamers used multiple phony identities, fraudulent Social Security numbers, purchased from identity forgers in order to obtain govt-subsidized benefits.

L/E will find that individuals with multiple identities obtained fraudulent mortgages then flipped the houses at ever-higher prices to family member who then absconded to foreign countries, sticking banks (and taxpayers) with hundreds of millions in fraudulent mortgages.

BACKGROUND A Wall Street Journal investigative report related that, according to the Federal Financial Institutions Examination Council examination of the borrowing spree, uncovered financial schemes by low-income housing groups, Hispanic lawmakers, a congressional Hispanic housing initiative, mortgage lenders and brokers, all colluding in fraduent schemes to increase homeownership among Latinos with forged documents which enabled massive fraud.

This was not simply the mortgage market at work. It was fueled by avarice, greed, and Congressional enabling fraudulent /practices. In 2005 alone, mortgages to Hispanics jumped by 29%; Latinos with multiple fraudulent identities in low-paying jobs obtained subprime mortgages for prime properties---soaring to 169%.

He’s right. If whites weren’t cowards, they’d be up in arms about affirmative action, the knockout game, selective prosecution on racial matters, Holder’s letter for racial quotas on school punishment... feel free to add to the list.

Eric injustice department leader,
The racists in USA are nearly all nonwhite. Most USAians have moved beyond race and now deal with everyone on their actual merits, rather than their color; especially people of the white color.
It is a perversion how many nonwhite and white people continue to give special consideration to anyone who is nonwhite. They are the racists who remain in USA. They are the ones who continue to separate people into categories due to their color. They of at least two groups: (1) evil or (2) indoctrinated, by endless conditioning about what happened in the past.

I’m asserting that amongst the “black culture”, anti-white racism has been taught and engrained for generations,
but they were not emboldened enough to act on that racism
until Obama and Holder made it clear that they had the green light.

What the hell can we do to appease them?

We gave them:
Public education for all.
Free food at school.
Welfare.
Free legal aid
Affirmative Action up to the level of President of the U.S..
Job set-a-sides.
Special treatments.
and a whole host of things “Whitey” doesn’t get.

What the hell are we to do next? Actually stand behind them and operate their legs so that they can walk up to a business and at least attempt to get a job?

Move their lips so they can speak English instead of Rap or Ebonics so that an employer can actually understand what they are saying?

It goes on and on and on...............

The fact is that THEY DON’T GIVE A DAMN and have absolutely no intention of trying to improve their standing in life since “Whitey” provides all that they need free....except Mad Dog 2020 and drugs.

All they have to get to get more (of everything) is simply play the RACISM card and it certainly produces a hell of a lot more than a credit card.

They are a lost cause. Why? Simply because they do not want to improve their lot and certainly don’t want to have to get up at and be at work each day. The neighborhood “bros” will look down upon them.

They have made their own beds and now they can lay in them to sleep. They hate “self-made” black men who have conformed to the civilized society (example: Allen West, Walter Williams, and a whole host of extremely good examples) who are true patriots and have advanced themselves to a point of envy by the normal citizen.

It’s time to let them live in their own feces and the garbage they rather surround themselves with than integrate into a civilized society.

I have grown very tired of this civil rights scam over the years and have no mercy on anyone who won’t help themselves.

Both him and Barky have to know, that a flip of the Senate this November opens that possibility. Two years later, the mere possibility of a conservative president, House, and Senate should send chills to the RATs. They have to know this. They know their crimes.

For that reason, there will be an event (false flag?); because at their core: they do not want to go to jail. All Valerie Jarrett to that list.

Like the cowards that strike the elderly from behind to knock them out? How about the cowards who beat Orthodox/Hassidic Jews? And the ones who attack, rape and rob little old ladies in the privacy of their homes? Would these be the same cowards? It’s rare for these perps to even be picked up, let alone prosecuted, but then are let out because the DOJ says there is overcrowding? Exactly WHO is AG Holder talking about, anyway?

America has come a long way since the 60s, to be honest. I lived in Bedford-Stuyvesant then, in Brooklyn. I’d say the atmosphere was BETTER then than now. It had been improving over the years. By leaps and bounds, even. But this president, in his first month in office, took racial relations back to the days preceding the 60s, honestly, and quite intentionally IMO.

I commend you.

If I’m not mistaken, though, the racism in your family is different, though, than that in black families.
In your family it wasn’t the blacks’ fault that you couldn’t succeed. It wasn’t the blacks “keeping you down”.

Right?

The generational racism that we’re talking about here has the added component of victimhood and a ready excuse for failure. And that’s a hard siren song to break.
