U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder speaks on stage during the annual meeting of the American Bar Association in San Francisco, California August 12, 2013
In a rare move, Attorney General Eric Holder took direct aim at U.S. Chief Justice John Roberts on issues of race during a commencement speech Saturday.
"Chief Justice John Roberts has argued that the path to ending racial discrimination is to give less consideration to the issue of race altogether. This presupposes that racial discrimination is at a sufficiently low ebb that it doesnt need to be actively confronted," Holder said, speaking at the historically black Morgan State University. "In its most obvious forms, it might be. But discrimination does not always come in the form of a hateful epithet or a Jim Crow-like statute. And so we must continue to take account of racial inequality, especially in its less obvious forms, and actively discuss ways to combat it."
Holder was referring to the Bush-appointed justice's famous quote from a 2007 ruling: "The way to stop discrimination on the basis of race is to stop discriminating on the basis of race."
The attorney general referenced the Supreme Court's recent decision upholding Michigan's ban on race-conscious admissions policies in public education or employment, in which Justice Sonia Sotomayor wrote a scathing dissent against the 6-2 opinion and also criticized the frequently-quoted line from Roberts.

Holder won’t be happy until there’s a white man in every cooking pot and a white woman in every kitchen. /S
“We is in charge now,” I heard someone say in 2009.
The highest concentration of African-Americans is in the Southeast:
The question becomes this: Why is the AG inciting people to riot?
People still have the right to choose where they live...at least til agenda 21.
Let’s talk about the blatant hypocrisy of the AG. Speaking at an historically BLACK university, Holder decries inequality and the reverse Jim Crow laws where whites are discriminated against via Affirmative Action.
The race baiter speaks.
Showshoe Hares change color in the winter to match the snow.
They also have big hairy feet to stay on top of the snow.
Not much snow down south.
Holder is looking for racism everywhere, this is all they have. Divide and conquer.
I hate naggers like Eric Holder. Stop nagging, Eric!
Actual lol moment...
I cannot WAIT to see this a-hole in an orange jumpsuit.
And does this make Eric Holder somehow “right” on race?
The entire Caucasian population of the world is living rent-free in Eric Holder’s head, And they are all speaking with one voice to him, “Die, n****r, die!”
At least, that is the only voice he hears.
That said, I have very little charity for Eric Holder.
If one was to say that Holder sees the world through a colored lens - would that be racist?
I’m feeling a micro aggression coming on...
Holder nows Roberts is Obama’s bought-and-paid-for voodoo doll.
He can stick as many pins in him as he wants, and there will be no pushpack from Roberts.
