sideliner, lately generally all of his commentary in on the Martin/Zimmerman thing, plus his allowing Holder to continue stirring the pot in that case.

If I'm called racist for referencing the "influx" from years back by another poster who now uses another handle, then Obama is truly a racist-in-chief.

The bottom line is neither the president or Holder should have "chosen sides" and partnered up with the likes of Jackson and Sharpton. The President needs to learn to quit making comments when it comes to open investigations and Holder needs to respect the decision of the jury and not go to rallies with Sharpton and tell people that he's not done investigating. If it looks like a duck and quacks like a duck, well guess what. I put him in the same radical category of those he stands behind and that is not serving justice to ALL the people.

Profile an innocent black teenager, and shoot him dead for the crime of walking while black with Skittles, and you're a hero. -Chases

May I suggest you read the very informative and factual article by Wikipedia concerning the Travon Martin shooting. You will discover many things that the administration and liberal media failed to tell you. The jury got it right and the case is closed. I suggest you get over it.

Sham,"...Especially when Lil' Dumbya's Supremos are putting so much effort into UNDOING as many Civil Rights, as they can manage, right??"

But it's OK when Obama's crew does it, right? Those who complained about civil rights violations under Bush, but now approve of Obama's continuation and extension of those violations are morons. Does it really matter what party the tyrant belongs to? Bush was a big government guy and Obama is a bigger government guy. Both increasingly infringed on our rights. Wake up and stand up. It's time to stop fighting for your party and start fighting for freedom, before it's too late.

"Racist President"

Who could have possibly predicted how absolutely insane the American right would become, just via the election of a black Democrat to the White House. It strikes me that the problem that everyone knows the right has had, that was demonstrated through the Willie Horton ad, the "Southern Strategy" etc, were much worse than anyone could have thought." - CHayes

It's "almost"-as-if such tactics were employed, intentionally!!!

"During a meeting with a House subcommittee, Holder argued that the behavior (standing in a menacing way) of the New Black Panther Party was not comparable to historical voter intimidation against minorities, which often involved acts of violence and murder. Holder said, "When you compare what people endured in the South in the ’60s to try to get the right to vote for African Americans, to compare what people subjected to that with what happened in Philadelphia… I think does a great disservice to people who put their lives on the line for my people." - Wikipedia

"my people"? I thought as the highest law enforcement officer in the nation, he was responsible for enforcing the laws of ALL the people. It's obvious where his loyalties lie." - Capricorn1

No doubt. They DON'T lie with FAUX Noise.

I'm guessing Eric HoldeR assumes he's addressing a LITERATE-audience.

Capricorn, you might want to get a bit more info about that voting District. No one was intimidated.How does it feel to be on the receiving end, is my question to those who feel Holder is racist.

Once again, the conservatives here are putting on a display of how twisted they are on racial issues.

Acknowledge that there are in fact multiple races of people living in the US, and you're a racist.

Profile an innocent black teenager, and shoot him dead for the crime of walking while black with Skittles, and you're a hero.

What a weird psychological wasteland these people occupy. This is your brain, and this is your brain on Fox "News". Yikes.

Sherri, Sherri, Sherri....... I don't think he has any knowledge of any wrongdoing by him or his office. Now, if ANYBODY remembers G. Zimmerman saying or doing ANYTHING racist, accurate or not, please notify the office of the A.G.

""Though this nation has proudly thought of itself as an ethnic melting pot, in things racial we have always been and continue to be, in too many ways, essentially a nation of cowards,' -Eric Holder

So we are a nation of cowards. Nice.

Carl, the races have been divided for centuries, including this one. If you didn't know that then you don't get out much into the real world and talk to real people of color who actually experience that division.

Those you mentioned are being blamed for the division when in fact they are drawing our attention to the 1000 pound elephant in the room that no one wants to talk about.

How does one control that which is divided? Prosperity comes with unity, not division. Economic growth comes with increased opportunity for all.

If saying "my people" is as racist as he gets, I think everybody ought to calm down a little and focus on some REAL racist issues. Issues on how the death penalty is applied, how the entire criminal justice system is skewed, even everyday hiring and firing within business. Look at real policies and the disparity across race of their applications should get much more attention than a main claiming to be a part of a subset of a group that he actually does belong to.

"his agenda at trying to correct all of the racial issues that have ever been perpetrated on the people of his race since the beginning of time!" Sorry but the Holders, the Obamas, Rangels, etc, etc are only fomenting racial division. They are not trying to correct anything. Those elitists want the races divided, that's the only way they can maintain control and personally prosper at the expense of all Americans.

Racist President, of course he's going to have other racists around him and appoint them to to top jobs; no surprise there.

He is in bed with the likes of Sharpton and Jackson and even praised them for their handling of the Zimmerman matter which accomplished nothing but stir racial tensions.

Eric Holder should be thrown out of office for his racist views alone. These people were appointed to a national office job to represent the entire population of the United States. What Eric Holder has done is accept the appointment and then proceed with his agenda at trying to correct all of the racial issues that have ever been perpetrated on the people of his race since the beginning of time! That's not what he get's paid to do!
