Skip to comments.Why Holder remark made white people mad
Posted on 07/15/2014 10:04:20 AM PDT by Conservative Beacon
On ABC's "This Week" on Sunday, U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder, who happens to be black, suggested that opposition to him and President Barack Obama in part is due to racial animus. For that, he has been vilified.
He has been accused of trying to scare people to the polls (as if listening to the evening news wouldn't already do that), stoking racial divisions and throwing down the race card. And he is asked rhetorically "is it possible to oppose Obama and not be a racist?"
The response to the attorney general's words has been very heated, and there is an obvious explanation.
"This Week" allowed many whites to hear what a black man is thinking about race. Most whites don't know because most whites don't have interracial conversations about race. To be fair, neither do most blacks. It's just that we know what other blacks are thinking because, well, we talk to other blacks about race.

I can't take this crap anymore. It's utter garbage.
Holder can talk about race all he wants to. But his racist views are whats at issue here.
Here’s the longterm effect of Obama’s presidency on race relations: Nobody Cares
As an aside: I watched part of a PBS special on race on the topic of AIDS, black women and commentators were moaning, “nobody told Black people about it. Nobody helped us.”
Truth is, nobody told anyone about it at first, because nobody knew what it was. When it was identified as a sexually transmitted disease, it was all over the news. Daily. For years. Did Black people not read newspapers? Nor watch nightly news shows?
Socialite Mary Fisher, who contracted AIDS from her husband, gave a speech about women and AIDS at the Republican National Convention in 1992. So it was no mystery. How many black women watched that? Or read the books and articles that were coming out daily about women and AIDS? Did they expect personal messages delivered to their doors by FedEx?
Just because he has dark skin?
Ricky has a lot of cream and sugar in his background! His buddy Racky isn't even black at all!
Soetoro and Holder are raciss #1 and #2.
In reality, the reason is very simple:
It makes us mad because we’re tired of being crapped on for stuff we do not do. I loathe Obama for the same reason I loathe Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid - I hate lying socialists who want to destroy America. I am an Equal Opportunity Loather of America Haters.
It’s absolutely not about race it’s about values. You put an Alan Watts, a Herman Cain, a Thomas Sowell, a Walter Williams, a Ben Carson in the place of Obama and the results would be totally opposite.
Why someone doesn’t point that out is beyond me.
1) Conservatives opposed the Clintons and Carter just as violently, and
2) Pundits compared George W. Bush to a chimp constantly.
I don’t really care what either side says we should do about racial injustice. Let individuals and businesses make their own decisions about integration or segregation, with neither integration nor segregation being enforced by the State. Whining about white people suggests a Colored Communist agenda, especially when you consider that the last white politician to explicitly endorse government-enforced segregation who sought office higher than a state legislature was David Duke (who is a liberal, anyway).
White racism is dead, with the exception of liberals identifying colored people as easy votes (in exchange for handouts). Colored racism is alive and well, as seen by Hussein Soetoro and Eric Holder.
every time white people start the discussion on race, they’re called racist so.....
How anyone as accomplished and, frankly, brilliant as is Hewitt can be this naive is beyond me.
Is it raysist to ask if Dottie’s hair color is natural, or if she’s a “bottle blonde”?
Most whites don’t have interracial conversations about race because they fear being pilloried as “racists” by those they have dared to disagree with. They have good reason to suspect that brainwashed minorities and guilt-ridden and politically correct whites are not reasonable people.
The top comment to the article is pretty good:
“Main reason I clicked on the article was to see if CNN would actually have the editorial gumption to have a white person write this article. You never disappoint CNN. Who better to have write an article explaining how white people feel being called racist for calling two incompetent goofballs incompetent than an African American professor from Emory University! This is not why I disliked the comments at all. It’s so funny there’s nothing else that needs to be said. Never change CNN. You lower the journalistic bar to places once thought unreachable. Non-stop unintentional comedy.”
'Cause we's all jest a buncha ignorant racis' rednecks who hates black folks?
I don’t think black people should be allowed to say anything disparaging about white people because they just don’t understand the white experience.
It’s a white thing, and I am offended now. Who do I sue?
Why have a conversation when there is only one acceptable answer? That’s called a “lecture”.
How anyone as accomplished and, frankly, brilliant as is Hewitt can be such a Romneybot is beyond me.
