Holder blasts racial profiling, shares own experiences
MSNBC ^ | April 9, 1994 | Morgan Whitaker

Posted on 04/09/2014 6:50:57 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

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 father’s 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 hadn’t 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 couldn’t 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 I’d never have to have,” he added.

Holder’s appearance came amid intense media scrutiny of National Action Network President and msnbc host Al Sharpton....

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.

Why? He profiles whites all the time.
He knows what whites will do, he knows what they're thinking.

“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.

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!

Didn’t he break and enter and illegally occupy offices at Columbia University when he was a student? He was getting a full ride scholarship at the time, right?

What a wonderful country.

Plays the victim so well! The encounter involving Trayvon had nothing to do with police, why’d he throw that in? If he’d taken his father’s words about encounters with police so seriously, why was he baiting campus police at Columbia, probably NYPD as well, when he took part in an illegal occupation of campus buildings that launched his career of corruption.

True, but it was completely understandable. He had just been freed from a lifetime of slavery picking cotton for the Koch family on their plantation. His back was a mass of scar tissue from the whippings he got when he begged for treatment as a human being, the overseer Mr. Limbaugh would just laugh and lash him again with the whip.

LOL! Call he waaaaaaaaaaaaaambulance!
This administration and its supporters/enablers is the biggest bunch of racial profilers there is in America: they constantly claim that we all disagree with them because BHO is black. That’s such a falsehood.

He talks about Trayvon Martin as some great national tragedy but doesn’t say a word about the tens of thousands of murders of black boys by the Crips and the Bloods! He strains on the gnat and swallows the camel.

If we have to stop racial profiling, then we also have to stop affirmative action.

Gee why would law enforcement be interested in Holder? Racism I guess. As college student, Eric Holder participated in ‘armed’ takeover of former Columbia University ROTC office

Holder and his ilk have a mental disorder. They see racism like anorexics see body fat that isn’t there. I feel bad for people with eating disorders, but not so much for Holder and crew because it is free America that suffers from his mental disorder. The inmates are running the asylum.

First of all, as with Obama, Eric the Red's history of serial lying reflects on the credibility of ANYTHING he says.
But if we examine the premise that "racism is bad", is then Eric the Red's reverse racism any less worse, or is it actually WORSE because it exists as revenge based on "racism is bad"?
Regardless, this whiny, lying, incompetent, corrupt, anti-American commie boob must soon be impeached.
