Racial Politics: Attorney General Eric Holder thinks the "overrepresentation" of blacks in jails somehow proves that cops and judges are racist. So he's collecting arrest data to lord over mayors.
Usually when an agency collects data, it waits to study the results before reaching conclusions. Not this Justice Department. It's gathering data to fit a preconceived notion that the criminal justice system is out to get young men of color.
Holder announced Monday that he's gathering records on police stops, searches and arrests to "curb racial bias" within big city police departments. He didn't say "possible" bias. He's convinced cops are targeting blacks.
Holder hopes the discrimination databases will cow police chiefs into reducing "racial disparities" in arrests. The goal of this policy, just like his anti-school discipline policy, is to coerce racial quotas for criminals.
The message to local officials is clear: Get your numbers right, or else.
"The overrepresentation of young men of color in our criminal justice system is a problem" and "an issue of fundamental fairness," Holder said. "Racial disparities contribute to tension in our nation generally and within communities of color specifically."
He says it's not "fair" that black men are arrested at six times the rate of white men. So with the help of the Rev. Al Sharpton, he has launched a $5 million program to investigate racial bias in five cities.
His prosecutors, in turn, will coordinate efforts to "implement and test strategies focused on procedural justice (fairness of outcomes), implicit bias (unconscious attitudes about race) and racial reconciliation (correcting historic discrimination)."
Sounds a lot like affirmative-action policing.

Lousy spell check alternative word prioritization.
Just wouldn't do to investigate whether blacks are involved in six times the crime, now, would it.
Just another facet of the Democrat party’s all-out drive to inflame racial tensions in hopes of motivating black voters in November.
At the rate Obama and Holder are going there will be full-scale race riots in many cities by October.
Wasn’t Holder a Black Panther?
I’m not sure about being a Black Panther but I’ve read he was in a militant black group in college.
He’s safe and fine in his galss house, the people most effected by this idiotic lawlessness of these cretans are the urban housing projects and poor nieghborhoods of the inner cities. They prey on thier own, they eat thier own they kill their own. Holder is an a## and amazingly enough the urban zombies see only color and are stupid enough to believe what this plantation owner sez. He’s doing a diservice to his own kind
Not sure either. But he is a life-long racist, no doubt about it.
But most of their victims are people of their own race, so Holder is seeking to increase the likelihood that law-abiding black citizens will be victims of a crime committed by a black person who would be locked up if not for the political pressure being applied.
Why is the federal Department of Justice entitled to second-guess the work of local law enforcement?
ll of the big city dem mayors are loving this.
So, on a per capta basis, whites commit as many crimes, but aren’t arrested or prosecuted?
Hey Rev Al and Holder—slavery has ended-—didn’t you get the memo?
equality mandates that the white/black crime rates are equal
I think that was Hitlery.
