U.S. Attorney Eric Holder is calling it a career. Unfortunately, there are some unresolved issues he’s leaving on the table like:
Filing Civil Rights Charges against George Zimmerman for violating (Did he ever investiagate that matter as he promised?)
Investigating the matter of whether NYPD officers violated the Civil Rights of Eric Garner,
Investigating whether officer Darren Wilson violated Michael Brown’s Civil Rights,
A Federal investigation of the Ferguson Police Department.
As the Nation’s first African-American Attorney General and just as a Black man, I’d think Eric Holder would have made these cases a priority before he left. After all, his boss President Barack Obama said his hypothetical son could have been Travon Martin.
But instead of showing how concerned he is about the abuses being perpetrated against other Black people, he’s heading for the exit. Abandoning the Black community when it needs him most.
A Sad Shame. Because 93% of Black people voted for Barack Obama. And this is the service we get from the Attorney General he appointed. Instead of drawing a hard line in the sand and taking constructive action to help the community who made the biggest effort to support his boss in two straight elections, Eric Holder packs his bags and heads for the exit when it’s time for him to go to work.
Eric Holder’s resignation is a clear statement on how ineffective the Obama Administration’s top watchdog is on Civil Rights. And a clear statement on how little he cares about Black people. If you had to Judge Eric Holder by his actions, he’s nothing more than an empty suit who makes empty promises.
Holder said over a YEAR ago he’d investigate George Zimmerman and see if he could file Civil Rights charges in the murder of Trayvon Martin. However, in that time he has done NOTHING.
In the case of Eric Garner, Holder was as silent as a rat pissin on cotton. A Black man clearly gets his civil rights violated by police and this Tom says NOTHING.
And a few weeks ago Eric Holder went to Ferguson in place of Barack Obama when the town was rioting over the death of Michael Brown. And instead of a plan of action to prosecute Darren Wilson, he tenders his resignation.
In the aftermath of the L.A. Riots in 1992, George H.W. Bush’s Attorney General filed charges against the cops who beat Rodney King almost immediately. And this was with a low approval rating. And being on his way OUT of the White House.
And in the aftermath of the Abner Louima incident Bill Clinton’s U.S. Attorney filed charges against Justin Volpe for violating Abner Louima’s Civil Rights.
It’s a sad day when two WHITE Attorney Generals for two WHITE Presidents can do more for Black people than the first Black Attorney Gerneral and the First Black President.
This is an embarrassment for the Obama administration plain and simple. Here we have three legal cases which could possibly shape the nation’s dialogue on race in the 21st Century and The nation’s first Black president is sitting in the oval office twiddling his thumbs while his Black Attorney General chickens out. When your nation’s top watchdog resigns in the middle of a Crisis it’s a sign leadership has collapsed. Instead of making a defining statement about how the law will be interpreted regarding race, Eric Holder heads for the exit, and Barack Obama makes a promise to apporint someone else.
Who will take two years to get up to speed on the cases of Eric Garner, Trayvon Martin and Michael Brown. Before the election of 2016 stops his work cold.
Shawn sees the chessplay here. And he understands what these two pedigreed House Negroes are doing. Like an NFL coach, they’re running the clock out. Waiting until Barack Obama’s term is over in two years then they’ll just pass the buck onto the next Republican president. Then they’ll play the ol’ shuck n’ jive blame n’ shame game when the new Republican President’s Attorney General doesn’t take any action in the cases of Travyon Martin, Eric Garner, or Micahel Brown. Then Obama, Holder and other Armchair buffer Negroes like Tavis Smiley, Cornel West, Al Sharpton, Louis Farrakhan, The Noob Black Panthers the pastors of all the Black churches and the NAACP will say it’s all the Republicans fault and the Republicans are racist.
When the ball was in the hands of the First Black President and the first Black Attorney General. But because both these pedigreed House Negroes were too afraid of taking a hit and rumpling their Brooks Brothers suits, they fumbled the football.
Ladies and Gentelmen of the Black Community Eric Holder Pimp smacked you with a pinky ring. And he didn’t leave a mark. While he and the elite Blacks like the NAACP celebrate his superficial career accomplishments, the serious issues like the Trayvon Martin, Eric Garner, and Michael Brown caes that would have truly defined race in America are being left on the table.
Tell me Black folks, is this what 93% of you voted for?
You would think our first Black Attorney General would make a STATEMENT about Civil Rights. But ironically our first Black Attorney General makes a statement for White Supremacy by being as SILENT as the first Black President on issues of race.
Black folks, Eric Holder has left you holding the bag on Civil Rights. And Barack Obama is planning on having his new Attorney General to keep that bag on his desk until the new Republican president’s Attorney General throws it in the trash.
The truth is No one in the Obama administration CARES about Black civil Rights. These elitist pedigreed Uncle Toms like Barack Obama and Eric Hoder are slaves of the Democratic party and do what their White liberal corporate bosses tell them. Basically, they’re nothing more than lap dog flunkies of the White Supremacists who sponsored their election to office.
Obama and Holder have their money. So Fuck You Black America.
Unfortunately, most of the Black community won’t see the middle finger Eric Holder gave the Black community when they asked him for help. Mind you this is a community that voted 93% for his boss Barack Obama. A man who said Trayvon Martin could have been his son. But his attorney General would rather head for the door and the comfort of retirement than lift a finger to get him justice.
Maybe Eric Holder will understand the impact of his silence on issues of race when he encounters the same kinds of racist cops his fellow pedigreed brother Henry Louis Gates ran into back in 2009 when he’s traveling through the roads of this wonderful AmeriKKKan countryside during his “comfortable” retirement. Because the same kind of racist cop who profiled Mr. Gates didn’t see an Ivy League degree or a high profile title, he just saw another nigger that needed to be put in his place.
I feel bad for Trayvon Martin, Eric Garner, and Michael Brown. Maybe The true Living God can give these men the justice our first Black President and our first Black Attorney General were too afraid to seek. Maybe one day we’ll have a Black President and a Black Attorney General who will act like MEN and not like mice.
