Boo-hoo, Miss Holder. You are a shameless, pathetic excuse for a human being, and you demean "your people" with your shameless race-baiting. You are a racist scumbag. The sooner Washington DC is cleansed of people like you, the faster the American people can begin to repair all the damage that you and your boss have created. (He IS your "boss", right? Is that racist too, you puke?)
Excerpt from politico....Eric Holder: Black Panther case focus demeans 'my people'
Attorney General Eric Holder finally got fed up Tuesday with claims that the Justice Department went easy in a voting rights case against members of the New Black Panther Party because they are African American.
Holder's frustration over the criticism became evident during a House Appropriations subcommittee hearing as Rep.

," said Holder, who is black.
Holder noted that his late sister-in-law, Vivian Malone Jones, helped integrate the University of Alabama.

" Holder said with evident exasperation.
In a series of questions and comments earlier in the hearing, Culberson insisted that race had infected the decision-making process. "There’s clearly overwhelming evidence that your Department of Justice refuses to protect the rights of anybody other than African-Americans to vote," the Texas Republican said. "There's a double standard here."
"This Department of Justice does not enforce the law on the basis of race," Holder insisted...
