There can be no doubt about it, Eric Holder is still flaming the fires of racial strife in the United States. At the National Action Network convention, Holder praised Al Sharpton and his 'activism' while specifically bringing up the Martin/Zimmerman shooting. Al Sharptons version of 'activism' in this case isn't a call for truth or for a good police investigation .. but rather were incidents of inciting mob 'rallies' to around shouting for the arrest of Zimmerman and calls for 'taking it to the next level' (which includes civil disobedience) if the mob didn't get it's way. Apparently Eric Holder greatly approves of this type of behavior because he made a big show of praising Al Sharpton and his activities.

Eric Holder Praises Left Wing Activist Al Sharpton - says Facts and Law will Guide Trayvon Martin Investigation

– Attorney General Eric Holder praised left-wing activist Rev. Al Sharpton at the opening of the National Action Network (NAN) convention on Wednesday, and also stressed that the Justice Department is conducting a thorough investigation of the fatal Trayvon Martin shooting that “will examine the facts and the law.” ....

Sharpton, president of NAN and host of MSNBC’s Politics Nation, has led several rallies demanding the arrest of George Zimmerman, who reportedly shot Martin on Feb. 26. On Mar. 30 in Sanford, Fla., where the shooting occurred, Sharpton pledged that his group would “move to the next level if Zimmerman isn’t arrested.”

The National Action Network, which Sharpton founded, has held multiple rallies about the Martin shooting, largely critical of shooter George Zimmerman, irrespective of an ongoing investigation..... MSNBC’s Sharpton has led several rallies, shouting “Arrest Zimmerman Now!” and has called for civil disobedience and an “occupation” in Sanford, Fla., if an arrest is not made.

IMHO - Holder is a racist puke and is an instigator in racial strife in this country.

Sounds to me that this guy is just looking to stir the pot. The question that remains though is WHY? what is his motive?

Divide and Conquer. That is one motive. To gain more rights and special privileges for blacks? That could also be another motive, after all people like him and the NBPP want black americans to be their own nation. Another motive? Goes along well with Divide and Conquer. "let the enemy thin themselves out from the inside" before implementing Martial Law.

Due to the fact that the brookings institute writings act as a what will soon happen in the middle east where foreign policy is concerned, I decided to look into what the Brookings institute had to say about race issues. This is the conclusion of their analysis of the 2010 census.

What is most interesting, is that blacks are moving from northern states into southern ones, and in large metropolitan areas there has been a very noticeable decline in segregation in black communities in the south, while northern states are keeping to a more segregated black community.

I am still looking to see if I can not find a paper written on what they would do in the event of race wars, but what I am wondering if the decline in segregation has anything to do with the push to have race wars.

"the broad swath of Southern metro areas, including those with large, growing black populations, shows
black segregation scores between 40 and 65. Those include Memphis (63), Washington, D.C. (62), Houston
(61), Dallas (57), Orlando (51), Atlanta (49), and Raleigh (42). Most of these metro areas have shown
continued segregation declines over recent decades, partly attributed to their growing middle-class black
populations seeking housing in the post-Civil Rights era. Somewhat surprisingly, several non-Southern
metro areas also ranked among those exhibiting large segregation declines over the last decade, including
Detroit, Kansas City, Minneapolis, and Omaha. Despite these declines, however, sharp segregation
distinctions still exist among U.S. regions and racial/ethnic groups."

Twelve metro areas had black segregation scores below 40, including Provo, Albuquerque, Las Vegas, and Salt Lake City.

As in the past, metro areas with the highest black segregation levels tend to be in the North. Seven metro areas, including New York, Chicago, Detroit, Cleveland, Buffalo, and St. Louis have black segregation levels above 70, and another 15 have scores above 65.

One of the most significant demographic trends of the 2000s was the large redistribution of black
population out of the Northeast, Midwest, and West and into the South. This effective reversal of the “Great
Migration” began in the 1970s, but expanded during the past decade to the extent that the former major
receiving states of Illinois, Michigan, New York, and California experienced absolute declines in their black
populations.9 Indeed, three-quarters of the nation’s black growth occurred in the South. Today, 57 percent of
the U.S. black population—a 50-year high—lives in the South.


The 2010 census reveals a broad sweep of racial and ethnic change that has made its greatest imprint on
the nation’s largest metropolitan areas. Rapid “new minority” gains to these areas coupled with very modest
growth, or often declines, in white populations put these areas on the front lines of a transformative era
affecting public policy and race relations for decades to come.

Some important policy implications will involve how to provide social, educational, and health services to
rapidly changing, diverse Hispanic and Asian communities who speak a variety of languages and represent
different origins. When juxtaposed against the needs of longstanding black communities, especially in more
segregated northern metropolitan areas, it is clear that “one size fi ts all” approaches will no longer apply.

The shifts also hold important political implications for ever-changing cities and suburbs within metropolitan
areas.14 For example, old urban coalitions that appeal to the needs of both blue collar whites and African
Americans now need to contend with issues brought on by emerging Hispanic and Asian communities. An
earlier report discussed the rise of a “cultural generation gap” between a more-diverse youth population and
a less-diverse older population reacting to new policies on immigration, education, and the competition over
scarce public funds for the respective needs of these groups.15 These gaps will become most prevalent
within large metro areas, especially within the suburbs, where the divides will be most apparent.

The new, more globalized demographics of America in the 21st century bring exciting opportunities for a
more diverse and outward-looking country and labor force. But this transformation also brings challenges
in adapting politics and policies to a citizenry who needs to be educated about the importance of these
shifts for future economic and social prosperity. From their position on the front lines, the nation’s largest
metropolitan areas will be the laboratories for accommodating and capitalizing on the nation’s continued
demographic evolution.

I agree and also disagree.
My opinion is that Yes they want a division but it's not to gain rights, but to lose them. Think of it this way - incite onc side enough so that violence occurs and voila! - fuel for a new attack on our rights, civil liberties and the Constitution.

Remember - we're a Nation of Laws(tm) and incarcerate more people than any other nation on the planet

Holder needs to go.

He's racist against whites it seems to me and he's not doing a thing for the lower class with the drug running and allowing calls for racial violence to go unheeded.

How much more do we need to take from this dude? He should have resigned when the drug running thing came up.

what I am wondering is if segregation (or recent lack thereof) would hurt the states electoral votes, ie: the more black the southern states become, and the less segregated the southern states become... what impact exactly would something like that have on elections, especially future presidential and/or senatorial ones. (and how would that affect corporations getting laws passed in their favor?)

This may be a different type of divide and conquer than we are giving consideration to? Or am I wrong?

Since typically blacks vote differently than whites do, or at least historically so, what does the absence of segregation in communities have on voting styles for all people? Does this increase the sympathies for why blacks vote the way they do, thus potentially changing white voting styles?

And would this answer be the cause of the attempt to incite race wars in America?

Holder is indeed a man of many faces and these comments regarding Sharpton are out of line for the nations AG. Especially when you consider everything that has come out of Sharptons Mouth in recent years.

Furthermore, Consider Holder's former position on the Board of the American Constitution Society (ACS)
Then, examine Holder's actions and statements while serving as Attorney General

The American Constitution Society for Law and Policy (ACS) is a Washington, DC-based think tank claiming to have approximately 22,000 affiliates nationwide—mostly law students, law professors, practicing attorneys, and judges. In addition to its student chapters at some 165 law schools across the United States, the organization also maintains professional chapters in 30 cities.

ACS was officially co-founded by Walter E. Dellinger III (who served as Bill Clinton’s Solicitor General in 1996-97) and Peter J. Rubin (a Georgetown law professor who was counsel to Al Gore in the two Supreme Court cases involving the Florida presidential recount controversy in 2000). Dellinger and Rubin launched ACS on July 30, 2001, with the stated goal of countering the influence of the Federalist Society, whose conservative views were allegedly corrupting young minds in law schools from coast to coast.

ACS operates on a yearly budget of several million dollars, a portion of which is used to publish a journal and to organize working groups that produce white papers on various topics related to the law. Several foundations have contributed large sums of money to ACS, most notably the Streisand Foundation, the Deer Creek Foundation, the Ford Foundation, George Soros’ Open Society Institute, the Overbrook Foundation, and the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation.

ACS aggressively recruits and indoctrinates young law students, with the ultimate objective of helping them rise to positions of power within the legal system—and thereby dragging all of American jurisprudence further to the political left.

While condemning what it calls “judicial activism” by conservative judges, ACS in fact encourages judicial activism by the left. To cultivate such a spirit, the organization has initiated a working group under the heading “Constitutional Interpretation and Change,” which seeks to “debunk” the “neutral-sounding theories of … originalism and strict construction” that “ideological conservatives” purportedly have used to smear “judges with whom they disagree as judicial activists who make up law instead of interpreting it.” This working group is part of ACS’s “The Constitution in the 21st Century” project, which aims “to promote positive, much-needed change in our legal and policy landscape,” “to formulate and advance a progressive vision of our Constitution and laws,” and “to popularize progressive ideas through papers, conferences and media outreach.”

ACS also administers a number of additional working groups. One of these is “Access to Justice,” which condemns “efforts to … insulate wrongdoers from suit, limit remedies and deprive legal aid services of resources.” This initiative is co-chaired by Lucas Guttentag (a national director of the ACLU’s Immigrants’ Rights Project, which seeks to expand the rights and liberties of illegal aliens); Marianne Lado (a former staff attorney with the NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund); and Bill Lann Lee (the Clinton administration’s top civil rights prosecutor from 1997 to 2001).

How Holder ever got into this position as AG is just a mind numbing mystery!!

Pay attention to this next part as it involves people appointed to Obama's cabinet

In June 2008, ACS Board of Advisors member Eric Holder, whom president-elect Barack Obama would name as his top choice for Attorney General five months later, spoke at an ACS convention. Predicting an Obama victory in the November election, Holder told his audience that the U.S. would soon be “run by progressives.” “With this new administration that will be taking its place in January of 2009,” he elaborated, “… we are going to be looking for people who share our values.” A “substantial number of those people” were likely to be ACS members, added Holder.

A December 11, 2008 New York Times piece reported: “[O]bservers expect that the Obama team will turn to [ACS] members to fill subcabinet positions and judgeships.” By that time, a number of major ACS figures already had secured positions in the forthcoming Obama administration:

Executive Director Lisa Brown had been named as Obama’s White House Staff Secretary. In the 1990s, Brown served as an Attorney Advisor in the Clinton Justice Department and as Counsel to Vice President Al Gore.
ACS Board of Directors member Goodwin Liu (also a Board member of the ACLU’s Northern California chapter) had been named to the Obama-Biden transition team.
Joining Liu on the transition team was another ACS Board of Directors member, Dawn Johnsen, who had spent five years in the Clinton Justice Department,

Read on

The American Constitution Society today congratulated former Deputy Attorney General and ACS Board member Eric Holder on his selection by President-elect Barack Obama as the nation’s next attorney general.
“Eric Holder is a man of integrity and vision, who will restore the confidence that Americans should have in their Department of Justice. He will bring a renewed commitment to fulfilling the Department’s mission and mandate to provide justice and equal treatment to all Americans,” said Paul Smith, chair of the ACS Board of Directors. “President-elect Obama could not have made a stronger choice.”
Holder, who also previously served as U.S. Attorney for the District of Columbia, addressed the ACS National Convention earlier this year, at which time he noted the importance of restoring principles of justice to our national policies in the struggle against terrorism and the prosecution of terrorists.
“Our needlessly abusive and unlawful practices in the ‘War on Terror’ have diminished our standing in the world community and made us less, rather than more safe,” Holder said in his speech this past June. “For the sake of our safety and security, and because it is the right thing to do, the next president must move immediately to reclaim America’s standing in the world as a nation that cherishes and protects individual freedom and basic human rights.”

Funny how Holder vows to instigate a thorough investigation into this case and yet he continues to obstruct the investigation into Fast and Furious.

I call that political cherry picking in the name of his personal agenda. Will the nation's impartial Attorney General please stand up?

That's the first thing I thought after reading the article. That he goes out of his way for fueling a racial strife situation that doesn't need to be there .. that he praises a race baiter who promises to 'take it to the next level' if the mob doesn't get their way ... but then Holder obstructs Fast and Furious. The second thing I thought of was Holder not going after the Black Panthers who engaged in racially motivated voter intimidation in Philadelphia ... carrying weapons and everything.

This guy sucks.

Holders true self appeared during the congressional hearings into Holder and the agenda ridden debacle of Fast and Furious... I'm sure you all read where Holder declared the hearing a personal attack on him because he was 'black'...

Holder is such a anti-gun, coniving, anti-constitutional IDIOT

Holder and all the other politicos, and activists need to shut up now that the matter is before the courts. Honestly, this is just stupid.

Right after the Special Prosecutor announced the arrest of George Zimmerman claiming it was based on the facts an not politically motivated, Al Sharpton held a press conference taking credit for the arrest and proving that is was a politically motivated arrest.

Then in the court hearing the next day the prosecution submitted "evidence" that is not admissible in a trial.

I have my problems with Al Sharpton and his past but I have to say his speech after Zimmerman's arrest was a call not to gloat. He said there is no victory here. That is exactly what he should have said. As I said I have my problems with Al Sharpton but if he and others had not protested and shed light on this case, a violent murderer might still be walking the streets.

When I first heard this story, I got suckered in by the press. I saw the pictures Michelle Malkin put up of a young man she claimed was Treyvon Martin. The picture shows a young man wearing a knit cap, flipping the bird at the camera while his pans are sagging. This kid may not look like a thug to some but I thought this was evidence of Treyvon Martin being a thug. I will admit now that I was wrong to take Malkin's word for it. It was not a picture of Treyvon Martin. We then find out that Martin was not a thug nor a gang member. We further find out that George Zimmerman has shown himself to be a violent criminal. He assaulted a police officer. He picked up a woman at work and bodyslammed her. He is accused of domestic violence. Co-workers describe Zimmerman as a nice guy with a violent temper. I am happy he's off the streets.

One thing has me stumped. How could a guy with such a violent history obtain a permit to carry a concealed weapon? Florida probably has a "shall issue" policy for concealed weapon carry. However I don't think Zimmerman should have gotten a permit after assaulting an officer.
