    Does the government of the United States promote a bias and racism toward white America?

    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.

    First, there is no white America. There is only America. Next there are people who live by their experiences with people. If they are negative, they ignore all the positive. While it is much wiser to ignore the negative people and focus on the positive people. Everybody sees the world through their own camera or lens. Some people like people, and can deal with anybody, some people exclude certain people for whatever reasons. It's their life, their choice. It's all thoughts or a mind set. Anybody who wants to condemn a whole race of people, whatever that race, people that they do not know is a racist. They are living with negative thoughts within. And nobody cares. It's their business. Life goes on for thousands if not millions of years. People appear, exist for a number of years, then disappear. So whatever anybody thinks about race is irrelevant and unimportant. In this point of view, the only responsibility a person has is to enjoy the years they are here, whatever number of years that is. Everything else, who owns this or that, who dates or marries this person, who is good, who is bad, its all a waste of time. Personal happiness is the measure. Some people get along just fine with all the races. They don't condemn anybody. They live how they want, they marry who they want, they go where they want, they earn as much money as they want. And the way they do this is, they are not afraid of anybody nor do they care what others think of them.

      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!

    I don't believe the government (as a body of elected officials) does, but I do feel the current Presidential admin. -and particularly the DOJ- goes out of its way to turn situations into race issues when they are not. This practice is hyped to the max, and I firmly believe the aim is to distract the public from issues embarrassing to the administration.

      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.

    Those who use the race of others to feel superior to them are people lacking control and wanting to regain it they blame their mistakes and stupidity on others rather than taking control of their lives and changing their ways and mindset. There is no white America just as there is no black America, Asian America, Indian America, etc.
    As for Atty Gen. Holder, the accusations coming from those in MO show substance and proof that there is racism there. Also, please do not think that one person of any race can speak for or encompasses the traits, habits, faith, work ethic or morals of all. Jackson and Sharpton are the most selfish users around and are not to be trusted by anyone. It amazes me how they are even given the time of day let alone any amount of trust.

      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--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.

      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?

    Clearly this administration does this. I am not quite sure what their ploy is but it is certainly consistent. Maybe Beth is right and it is a means of distracting attention from them with all their disgraceful scandals seeping from everywhere. This president and administration would promote racial tensions at the drop of a hat and I believe this is in the plan of tear down and destroy which this president has been doing a fine job of. If I ever read anything good about this president in a history book after his time is up I will be extremely surprised. Even his own party is now backing away from him. He is not man enough for this job and that is becoming clearer every day! So sure if he can get us fighting each other he can go on with his agenda to finish tearing down America. Do I sound racist? How could that be when I let him fool me into voting for him first term. Oh; yes I did it proudly. Now it shames me to no end watching what he is doing!

      cjhunsinger- you can say anything you want to in America. You have a constitutional right to be wrong and say anything but Fire!!!  I can say, your thought process is in total error.

    Since only less than 15% of the country is black and since they represent one of the poorest segments of the population, then I would say no, the government does not promote racism toward white Americans. I would say in a roundabout way it does promote a bias to white Americans, which means it slants in their favor--i.e. US history is taught from the perspective of whites, etc. Eric Holder is entitled to his opinion.. He's a lawyer-bureaucrat (and a politician) and not a judge or jury. This is a racist country. The whites go berserk if black people ever raise a hand and say that something does not seem right about the way they are treated. Just 60 years ago, blacks were officially second-class citizens in some states.

      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.

      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.

      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.
