Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton are noted race baiters and race profiteers, so their words are to be expected and placed in the proper trash can. Eric Holder is quite another story, as his position, as Attorney General demands objectivity and a high level of character and integrity. This is not Holder's position, as he alludes too, and makes accusations of racism to untried situations and America in general without proof or substance.

Sri---I share your views, but sadly others see race, as a means to justify their own failures or hatreds. Right again, there is no white America, there is America and Americans--no such thing as a hyphenated American.
We have a US Marine rotting in a Mexican prison and Obama cannot pick up the phone but if he were black or a traitor against America Obama would be right there. We all know that is truth!
No opinion. Nobody's perfect. No president. Can't please everybody.
Eric Holder represents the US people but he does nothing unless it is black related. He has had no investigations into "any" of the democratic scandals and he never will but let any black person make the news and he and the president are right there.
Bush ignored the people in the flood of Katrina. Again, no president is perfect.
Your statement is false. The first line of caring for these people belonged to the mayor and the governor--they failed and the mayor was absolutely incompetent.
Not of that magnitude. Look at the mass shootings of children. Don't they respond quickly? Even international disasters, America has an immediate response. As a human being, he should have had a response. Any normal human would.
Sri T has a valid point. Also, Cjhunsinger would it not be fair that you ask others for proof of their claims instead of just me?
Certainly not this one; if you can even call him a president. Absentee maybe.
Also it's not a collective opinion of race. It is individual. The person will let you know by their comments if they are for a race or not. Why choose the blacks? The comment reveals them. It is a tainted vision. There are poor in every race.
Express--When I have cause to doubt, I ask for evidence from everyone. Sri needs to provide specifics, not general statements.
What makes you doubt what I am saying? Why do you not present evidence when asking this question? You are reminding me of those who call people race baiters when they discuss the fact that racism exists my friend.
Express-You are asking me to show proof of something that I do not believe happened? Usually, in the real world, when one makes a claim of an event it is up to that person to show proof.
Reference Ferguson MO. can you demonstrate the substance and proof you speak of?
Two MO PO's (Cosma + Carter) hog tied a 12 year old who went to the family mailbox to get mail. That lawsuit was filed in 2012. There are other lawsuits such as the one for officers tasering a mentally ill person who later died due to the tasering.
Express--Please show the link that gives the full story.
Express--The 1st link is a complaint, one sided and does not substantiate anything. The 2nd shows possible cause for the tazer, a naked man, outside, out of control and coming at the police. Your conclusions of racism have not been proven.
Why have these relevant links been deleted? Several cases are making their way through the courts + there are more. Where there is smoke from a variety of disconnected sources there is fire but some see only what they want that supports their view.
Express--You made 'factual' assertions of racism nothing you have shown backs that up. Now you allude to allegations, as proof. This is a lynch mob mentality-democracy in action.
Post the links that I provided (that you clearly saw but somehow have gotten deleted) so readers can decide for themselves. Then again, those truly wanting knowledge or truth will seek it themselves regardless of censorship or anything else.
Express-My view says your links are waiting moderation. You do like to accuse. Best contact HUB before you once again point a finger without justification.
And I quote you "This is a lynch mob mentality-democracy in action." You falsely accused me for simply showing evidence that racism exists in MO specifically. Did you not note that my answer agrees with you and I ventured to say racism exists?
The answer to your question is no. The Federal Government under the present President don't promote bias and racism . The Federal and State Government in America for hundreds of years have and has promoted a bias and racism toward Black America. FYI
junko--If you can say that this admin does not demonstrate racism, I guess I can say that your accusations are totally in error.
