Attorney General Eric Holder spoke out against racial profiling Wednesday, arguing the practice undermines the relationship between communities and law enforcement officials. He also reflected on his own experiences with profiling in years past.
The attorney general told an audiance at the annual National Action Network convention in New York that his father gave him advice as a boy on how to interact with police if he ever felt he had been stopped unfairly.
I thought of my fathers words years later, when as a college student I was pulled over twice on the New Jersey turnpike and my car was searched even though I was sure I hadnt been speeding, he said, according to his prepared remarks. I thought of them again some time after that, when a police officer stopped and questioned me in Washington while I was running to catch a movie even though I happened to be a federal prosecutor at the time.
And I couldnt help but think of my father just a couple of years ago when I sat down to convey the same message to my own teenage son after the shooting of Trayvon Martin a conversation I hoped Id never have to have, he added.
Holders appearance came amid intense media scrutiny of National Action Network President and msnbc host Al Sharpton....

I see racism runs in the family.
“I was born a poor black child...”
Oh please. The guy is such an idiot that if there weren’t for minority set asides and a different scale for him, nobody would know who the hell he was as his career would have amounted to nothing.
His entire life had the expectations set low and he worked tirelessly to make sure he met the lowered expectations. He’ll forever be known as the worst AG in all of american history and with luck he’ll be buried in an unmarked grave to keep desecration from happening.
And if he wants to talk about “talks” it’s because of this ass that the DoJ has enshrined racism into their daily practice to the point where white parents need to talk to their kids how they can’t expect fairness under the law.
Holder, the head Trayvon. It’s whitey’s fault he keeps breaking the law.
Yes. FWIW, Leftists are not anti-racists. They just hate whites.
Holder - f**k you and idiot Obama. This is the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA you are messing with. This isn’t the college president’s office now. This is an entire nation that is sick to death of your bullsh*t. Keep pushing...just keep pushing...
“It’s racist to criticise me because I masterminded a mass murder plot to destroy the Second Amendment and, anyway, aside from a couple of honky cracker Border Patrol agents who were where they shouldn’t be at the wrong time, the only people who got killed were a couple of hundred inferior Mexicans. What does dey matter compared to de bruddurs?” Racist Holdertutd’s real thoughts about F&F, his mass murder operation to undermine the Second Amendment.
He may as well keep playing the race card. It keeps working.
Perhaps if properly socialized and educated blacks did more to reverse the acceptance of the culture of crime and violence in the inner city black communities, white folks would feel more comfortable and this stuff might stop.
Oh, and it would also help if YOU AND OBOZO would STOP WITH THE RACE CARD AND DIVIDING THE COUNTRY!
