Holder has refused to let the Justice Dept fully investigate a case of voter intimidation committed by two black panther party members at a polling place in Philadelphia during the 2008 elections. Now that the GOP heads the committees, his disregard comes into the spotlight. Holder has been accused of a double standard by not protecting the voting rights of non-African Americans. Holder seems to reply that comparing the suffering of African Americans in their fight to get the vote was not appropriate to the discomfort that non African Americans experienced outside the polling place with the black panthers and was a disservice to "my people". So apparently for the Justice Dept to investigate voter intimidation, you have to suffer what African Americans suffered during the 60s. So do you agree with his definition of justice?
Apparently, I'm not one of Holder's "people" in his eyes.
I....don't think Obama thinks of me as one of "his people" either, from several things he has said. All based on the color of my skin, no less.
I don't like them either, but it's based on the crap they say and do, not on their skin color.
To me this sounds really messed up. I'm a minority myself but even I'll tell you that if something like that was suspected of going on, then the police should have legal rights to investigate it. This is one of the things wrong with this country, we try to be so politically correct all the time that we sometimes forget that part of the reason behind the civil rights movement was to preach equality among the races. NOT to gain some sort of special treatment where one minority group can act outside the law to get what they want. That's not the purpose behind the civil rights movement, and anyone that says otherwise is selling something.
Steven, where were people like you when black males launched over 200 racist riots against innocent white people and their business AFTER the 1964 Civil Rights Act was signed into law?
Regarding Holder's statement, it is appalling...
Almost 40% of all blacks were registered to vote in the South in 1964, compared to 65% (more or less) in the North. Mississippi had the lowest level of blacks registering at 6.5%. Mississippi was also the poorest southern state with a total population of only 2.1 million. This was pre LBJ Great Society programs, so black really had little desire to vote. The DEMS were in the beginning stages of buying black allegiance. But the fact that almost 40% of all blacks were registered to vote in the South show that white people were NOT conspiring to keep blacks from voting.
Other racists acts by Obama Admin:
-Compton CA, 35% black, 65% Hispanic. Black control 100% of the political offices in the city, plus state and congressional seat.
--Obama sides with racist “Skippy” Gates against a white police officer
--Obama signed into law a black farmer compensation settlement…giving almost 100,000 black males a free $50,000 paycheck - simply because they claimed they wanted to be a farmer and the racist gov’t refused to let them (yeah, right)
Still too blacks believe they deserve double standards and when they don’t get it, they conjure and distort the past. I see no end to these bully tactics because white people never confront black bullying. NEVER
Dang! Last time I looked in the mirror I wasn't one of Holder's people.
You suppose I could be one of his people if I got carried a head buster stick?
From what Holder says, sounds like that would indeed increase your chances of him being your friend!
