Justice Dept Promoting Reverse Discrimination for Racial Paybacks?

Written on Sunday, October 16, 2011 by

Barack Obama, Eric Holder

Among those who have been disappointed by President Barack Obama, none is likely to end up so painfully disappointed as those who saw his election as being, in itself and in its consequences, a movement toward a “post-racial society.”

Like so many other expectations that so many people projected onto this little-known man who suddenly burst onto the political scene, the expectation of movement toward a post-racial society had no speck of hard evidence behind it — and all too many ignored indications of the very opposite, including his two decades of association with the egregious Reverend Jeremiah Wright.

Those people of good will who want to replace the racism of the past with a post-racial society have too often overlooked the fact that there are others who instead want to put racism under new management, to have reverse discrimination as racial payback for past injustices.

Attorney General Eric Holder became a key figure epitomizing the view that government’s role in racial matters was not to be an impartial dispenser of equal justice for all, but to be a racial partisan and an organ of racial payback. He has been too politically savvy to say that in so many words, but his actions have spoken far louder than any words.

The case that first gave the general public a glimpse of Attorney General Holder’s views and values was one in which young black thugs outside a voting site in Philadelphia were televised intimidating white voters. When this episode was broadcast, it produced public outrage.

Although the Department of Justice’s prosecution of these thugs began in the last days of the Bush administration, and the defendants had offered no legal defense, the case was dropped by the Justice Department after Eric Holder took over. One of the lawyers who were prosecuting that case resigned in protest.

That lawyer — J. Christian Adams — has now written a book, titled “Injustice: Exposing the Racial Agenda of the Obama Justice Department.” It is a thought-provoking book and a shocking book in what it reveals about the inner workings of the Department of Justice’s civil rights division.

Bad as the Justice Department’s decision was to drop that particular case, which it had already won in court, this book makes painfully clear that this was just the proverbial tip of the iceberg.

Despite the efforts of some in the media and in politics to depict the voter intimidation in Philadelphia as just an isolated incident involving a few thugs at one voting place, former U.S. Attorney Adams shows that these thugs were in fact part of a nationwide organization doing similar things elsewhere.

Moreover, the civil rights division of the Justice Department has turned the same blind eye to similar voter intimidation and corruption of the voting process by other people and other organizations in other cities and states — so long as those being victimized were white and the victimizers were black.

This is all spelled out in detail, naming names and naming places, not only among those in the country at large, but also among those officials of the Justice Department who turned its role of protecting the civil rights of all Americans into a policy of racial partisanship and racial payback.

The widespread, organized and systematic corruption of the voting process revealed by the author of “Injustice” is on a scale that can swing not only local but national elections, including the 2012 elections. The Department of Justice under Attorney General Eric Holder has not only turned a blind eye to blatant evidence of voter fraud, it has actively suppressed those U.S. Attorneys in its own ranks who have tried to stop that fraud.

Even in counties where the number of votes cast exceeds the number of people legally entitled to vote, Eric Holder’s Justice Department sees no evil, hears no evil and speaks no evil — if the end result is the election of black Democrats. It has become the mirror image of the old Jim Crow South.

This is an enormously eye-opening book which makes painfully clear that, where racial issues are concerned, the Department of Justice has become the Department of Payback. A post-racial society is the last thing that Holder and Obama are pursuing.

    What we have here is an anti-american muslim mole and a pro-black panther militant running the show both have no interest in making america great but have a comon goal of breaking it’s back to implement their idealistic form of government upon us. Their idle are punks like this POS that should have been taken out where he stood along with his associate gang banging JA. Watch and listen

    • Joyce

      Do you have any doubt that if Obama and Holder were white they’d still be in office after the first 3 months of 2008? We have to fight racial discrimination (including reverse racial discrimination) wherever it exists, even if it means getting rid of our “first black [hateful muslim] president”. Why are our politicians so afraid to muss up one strand of their hair when both of them and their minions all need to be booted out of office and out of America for treason, regardless of color?

  • The Enemy

    The home of racism today is in the black and hispanic communities. Caucasian folks, for the most part, have gotten beyond racial prejudice. But the blacks and hispanics, especially blacks, keep racial unrest alive for political gain.

    • Byron

      And you know what’s really funny hispanic aint a race they are an ethnic group.

    • sid

      back in ’72, i put in for a promotion, when i worked at the ny times. i was passed over, because they needed to reach their quota!!! they even asked me to train the new employee, which i refused!!!

    • ronnie

      Yep… over 30 years of ACTIVE discrimination against Caucasian Americans perpetrated by our own government for political gain, CONTROL,(Divide& Conquer) and GREED!

    • Barbara Thomas

      I think blacks and hispanics self-segregate and talk about whites in a racially negative way. I think we will see a self-divided America within the next few years. The is so much racial hatred in the military, that I decided to write a book about it. Hopefully it will be in publication by spring 2012.

    • Barbara Thomas

      I Agree! Back in 1979, I was told by a store
      in Va named Peoples, that although I was highly qualified for assistant manager, I could not get the job because they, also, had a quota! I said to the manager, “are you telling me that I cannot have the job because I am white?” and he answered “yes”.

    • traitors in gov

      Hispanics race is,, are you ready???
      Caucasian…Look it time they shout something about LaRaza tell them yes, we Caucasians are a good race, not “The Race”..

      Now, other than that,, they are a NATIONALITY, not a race, not anything else.. they just group them together…

      Look on a Government (voluntary – that if you don’t fill out kiss that job goodbye) form so they can feel good about hiring “minorities” (which I would really like to go off on that word – due to making people feel less than someone else is B.S.)..
      anyway, that sheet say Caucasian (not Hispanic) on it… tell me what that means..

      So next time you see a Mexican call them whitey and watch how peeved it gets them, then tell them how true it is..

      Now you are informed

    • Margie Foster

      You are correct, they do not know who they are or where they really came from, much like other Caucasians of America……….

    • Barbara Thomas

      My next door neighbor a few years ago came here had two anchor babies. One of which is in school (7 years old) said to me, “all of my friends are white like me” to which I replied, “honey you are not white, you are hispanic” she ran into the house highly ticked off at me! I cannot believe that her mother was getting medicare/aid just like me, a disabled veteran who proudly served this nation for 28 years, and she, an illegal immigrant. Most law enforcement officials in Kissimme, Fl, choose to ignore the illegals…even after complaints from myself and others! I can see a more divide America in the near future.

    • jan

      And the leadership of the racism today is in the White House. Those around Michelle Obama say she is the most racist person they have been around.

    • Amazed American

      That’s no surprise, at least it shouldn’t be. She has let the country know how much she hates whites and even blacks. The woman is probably most unhappy because of the vile hate she harbors for our country and HER racist anger. She blame whites for her black skin. I suppose that she is to be pitied!

    • Charles Martel

      And this is news how?

    • gator

      michelle, aka aunt esther, is a racist and an american hater. she is the typical black mammy using her position to steal everything she can and try to get attention like a 3 year old. she steals from us every time she takes another extravagant vacation. she has to have a huge enterage to make herself feel important! typical mammy! use the system to steal everything you can. they better count the silver wear when the silverback leaves the whitehouse!

    • ctc wilson

      LIARS, liars, pants on fire. Democraps are communists.. plain and simple.. soon we will have, in addition to reverse discrimination, reverse communism. Then, a Black Hitler will appear to save all of his people. Get ready. Just a matter of time. If you are white, get a bullet proof vest, and arm youself, NOW.

    • bob

      Yes, actually rival tribes would collect prisoners and sell to the New England based shipping industry. After delivering domestic goods, cotton, indigo etc they would return via the southern route off of the west coast of Africa and load their empty ships with these prisoners to sell to the southern plantation owners. It was a circular sailing path which benefited from the prevailing winds and fair currents.

    • CWD

      Sorry to disappoint you but the Ocean State of Rhode Island was of the biggest importers of slaves. Many slaves entered America through Savanna and Charleston but that was near the last of the slavery years. The Caribbean Islands was also used as a holdover spot to keep slave market in check.

    • ronnie

      YOU SEEM TO KNOW YOUR HISTORY? So why dont you finish the story? You know… how there were 4-WHITE SLAVES for every 1-black slave, funny how that part of history was/is always left out.

    • am2sweet

      Too true and I don’t know why the blacks weren’t educated to where they could understand that many of their ancestors sold family members as slaves because they had too many kids and couldn’t support them all. They thought they’d have a better life being sold off and that also gave money for the remaining family to live on. Our schools should have taught that as part of history.

    • Trish

      How STUPID are these people!!! There’s no such thing as REVERSE discrimination…..;discrimination is discrimination, pure and simple!!!!

      And these people are running the JusticeDepartment? God spare us all.

    • http://msn Mike Stone Sr

      @ the enemy—-Political correctness has come to disallow truth , and one of those truths is that not only the US Justice Department , but a world wide coalition of radical progressives, just like obama, are in the business of fostering a universal hatred of whites , to be followed by progressive governments confiscation of wealth and complete removal of whites from positions of authority! I would also ask , before people swallow progressive rhetoric about global warming that they research the lies put out by al gore and cohorts that somehow stumbled onto the biggest potential ripoff in history! Find out the intentions to rob the entire human population out of trillions of dollars through schemes like “cap and trade”, to implement mandates that cripple human ingenuity and needs for self induced affluence!

    • Barbara Thomas

      Totally agree! I was in the military for 28 years and retired 10.10.10. The Army is now 53 percent black, 17 percent latino, and thanks to “don’t ask, don’t tell, 17 percent gay..where do that leave the white Soldiers?
      … civilian jobs, that’s where! Dear God, please help America to become less racially biased!

  • nvrpc

    I can’t say I agree with you because I still see those who act like idiots as jungle bunnies but then agin that pretty much goes for anyone I see that is acting less than normal and on good behaviors no matter what race they are. I will say the bad one stand out and make the rest look very bad therefore the classification and sterotying will never stop until they ALL learn what acting like a human is.

  • Mutantone

    if you want real racist behavior look at what the nation has done to all my people the Native Americans

    • Joan

      Mutantone, I’m in agreement with you if anyone has gripe against America it’s the Native American!!

    • james

      Yeah, especially if you are talking about the fact that the Govt has them so addicted to welfare that they are completely disfunctional.

    • Jackie

      Sounds familiar.

    • Chet

      Starting with Andrew Jackson taking their land from them, forcing them to go out west.

  • Brian

    If you want to see racism truly at work I offer you this: A black man can walk through a white neighborhood and make it out in one piece but let a white man try the same in a black or mexican neighborhood. He may not make it out, unless he is in a cop car that is…

    • harry

      i was walking in a black neighborhood and was stopped by a black cop.he told me to get out of that neighborhood because i had no business there,try that to a black in a white neighborhood

    • Sam

      Those welfare guys in their $100 basketball shoes, driving customized Lincolns and Cadillacs don’t like to be messed with

  • Bill

    As I recall, it was not the white man who went into the African bush to capture African tribesman to be sold as slaves. They were black. So if there is to be payback, why isn’t Holder targeting African Americans.

    • http://WEcan'tbecalledaracistnation Jeronimo Dan

      Because, simply put, Holder is and has been a racist and communist all of his life.

    • Bill

      Unfortunately, that is true.

  • L.E. Liesner

    When racial discrimination starts to become a thing of the past,along comes Obama and his administration to stir up the pot. Today we do not have a Department of Justice, we have a Department of Injustice and our Congress does not have the backbone to solve the problem. The forces of evil are the cause of racial disturbance, because their first goal is the destruction of our country.

      they continue on through their children… the “LIB-TURDS”!

  • http://WEcan'tbecalledaracistnation Jeronimo Dan

    Don’t let Obama say he didn’t know what Holder was and still is. Holder’s held the name of Racist and Communist for the past some twenty years. He’s exactly what Obama wants in his administration.

    • LesPaul


  • Mark

    Obama promised to be a post-racial president, instead he has been the MOST RACIAL president.

  • Liberty Lane

    There were hints of racist undertones during the ’08 election cycle, but one of the first more blatantly open black racist moments I remember that didn’t involve a figurehead of some sort was the situation where angry black democrats in Prince George’s County, Maryland took it as a personal affront & called for boycotts when a hotel had the audacity to put up a McCain/Palin sign. Among the complaints was that it was “blatant disrespect,” and that it was wrong due to the fact that the area in which the sign was displayed was “strongly African American.” One has to wonder if those strongly African American members of that community would have had the same reaction to political signage had Hillary Clinton or some other non-African American candidate been the Democratic nominee in ’08 instead of Obama.

    These people must be very pleased that the Obama administration has a man like Holder for the Attorney General. But they should consider that one who conveniently ignores the law to benefit one group could just as easily do the same to them when it was expedient to the changing goals of the administration.

  • Charles Martel

    The damage done to society during these four years will persist for many decades to come.

    The question is, what is Congress doing? There are grounds to impeach Holder + others, but all I see is paralysis, or timid attempts to take some kind action.

    The democrats in Congress should be the first to raise their voices. These actions are done to AMERICA and the people they represent. This is not a party issue anymore, this is the malefic destruction of the social fabric. And blacks are their worse victims.

  • Carol Fryer

    Why are they talking as though this is suddenly happening. This nation has been in the mode of reverse discrimination ever since I can remember. Where have they been?
    And we dont even know who Obama is, so hes supposed to care what Holder was and is, supposing he didnt pick what he was and not him as a person. Come on. If someone picks a whole bunch of comunists, duh!!! They want comunists. Its like saying dont look for Mexican in a group of people to find an illegal. So much inequality in the so called equality its tearing the nation apart. Political correctness is a bunch of BS and the right is going along with it. They make sure theres just enough votes to not do anything about it.

  • jim bob

    I would get to worried about this…in a few generations, we will all be one big Mixed Race…

    Too much inter-racial loving going on…

  • PaulG.

    I don’t think there is one stable nation in Africa. If anyone doubts the possibility of reverse discrimination in this country do a search for “farm murders” in South Africa.

    We need to take our country back before it’s too late. Civilized societies are a European idea no one else’s.

  • GDC

    Impeach Obama and Holder, prosecute them, EXECUTE them!

  • Ralph

    So, why is everyone so surprised? All the indicators were there for everyone to see. The Racism of Holder and Obama was clear and visible and a very poorly kept secret.

    • Sam

      Secret? They flaunt it!

  • Ms. Washington, DC

    The Investigation into The Fast and Furrious and Eric Holder I hope will continue until this man is relieved of his duties and no longer in charge of the Injustice Department as we know it today. These kinds of people should never, never be anywhere near the operations of our government including Obama. They play dirty, very dirty and we need to do the same. All this money which was given to the Solar companies by American taxpayers which are now bankrupting,I believe is laundered money which is now going into Obama’s campaign warchest. You give a company millions of dollars and they go bankrupt in just a few months looks very strange and corrupt to me. This kind of business dealings is the way Obama operates.

    • bob

      Absolutely laundered money…I kept trying to figure out how any one could spend 550 million in about 550 days without producing anything. Do the math…one million per day…gone and thats not even counting the other financial backing, stocks and holdings that keep businesses rolling.

  • Bud G.

    While I was on active duty in the U.S. Army, we had Human Relations classes frequently.
    On one such occasion, the officer giving the class talked endlessly about past injustices to the black people. Toward the end of the class, I stood up, announced the fact I was from American Indian Heritage. I then said while what you say is true, the black people have not lived on a reservation as some of my people still do and they were never murdered in mass for their land. In all due respect, I think we have been treated much worse than the blacks and yet we don’t complain about the past.
    There was a silence in the room for about 10 seconds. Then the officer said: “You are right and we should devote more time to all ethnic groups”. The class all stood up and clapped including many blacks and the officer who was also black.
    I believe the reason this problem still exists is because of people like we have in this administration, Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton who clearly are agitators.

    • bob

      Only through agitation and instigation do these hacks,Sharpton, Wright, Jackson etc, have any relevance in the political scene. Otherwise, they are just abunch of losers…Actually they are a bunch of losers only they have been given the power, due to ignorance, to hold sway over their communities.

    • Sam

      If they weren’t racists, you would have never heard of them.

  • Peaver Bogart

    “A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor, he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to fear.”

    Marcus Tullius Cicero, Roman orator, statesman 42 B.C.

    • ronnie

      Socialism is a code word for Communist-lite. Socialism would provide the elite and the powerful the opportunity to get rid of the middle class and to create a bottom class so that there are only two classes of people, the controllers and those they control. They want to get rid of any chances for prosperity. Why? Prosperity gives people some hope for the future. You can’t control people when they are hopeful and feed them a line of bull about true equality. I had the distinct privilege of walking the streets of East Berlin before the WALL between East and West Berlin was taken down. I can tell you that in this supposed showcase of Communism (East Berlin was their best work) there was true equality….yes indeed…..everyone was EQUALLY POOR.
      But make no mistake there were those who were in charge, roughly 3 percent of the population, who ran the show and lived well while the remainder of the population lived in utter POVERTY.

      The buildings were in terrible condition, people lived in look alike apartments, the lines were long for those waiting to buy food and we were instructed not to buy food as we would be denying food to those who really need it. That translates into shortages of food. Why shortages? There was no incentives to produce as there is in those ‘so called’ greedy capitalistic countries like the U.S. There certainly were no shortages for the Communist party members who were well fed, well educated and dressed.

      The younger population of the U.S. who voted for Socialism in the last election do not have a reality based understanding of history and have been brainwashed by their brain dead teachers who in turn have been brainwashed to believe that socialism is an answer to the worlds problems. Well I am here to tell you socialism equates to starvation and material and spiritual deprivation on steroids. There is not much difference between socialism and communism. Who are funding the socialists? They are the equivalent of the Communist elite. Only today these characters are not Communist party members but the super rich and super powerful who want to rule the entire world. Look at what they have done in Europe with their European Union. It would appear now that it is beneficial but lets see how beneficial it will be in the future once they have the European Union all nailed down and under their complete control.



  • T Lady

    J. Christian Adams and Dr. Sowell are 100% correct. In nominating Eric Holder for the post of AG, Barack Obama’s true colors were on display for all to see. Holder’s track record is that of one filled with vengeance and hatred towards America, and White Americans in general. Anyone remember the Elian Gonzalez debacle, and Holder’s role in it by any chance? That speakes volumes.

  • Pete

    Well said Bud.

    The people that were treated worst were the Indians who were already here, but they and the Chinese who were treated as non-humans have made themselves fully a part of American society by acting as mature adults and getting on with their lives.

  • Rich

    Hang in there folks because the pendulum is going to swing on these racist And when it You can only push someones nose in the crap for so long before they strike back. You’ll see a bunch of laws get taken off the books and then they’ll say “Oh crap what have we done????”

  • RAM

    “Reverse discrimination’ is just being used as another tactic, of costing taxpayers more money. Racism has been used for centuries, by government trying to cause discrimination and to get more control and power. None of the money comes from their pockets. so they have no vested interest in really caring what they do or cause. If you had term limits, restitution and fines, for lies, comments, stealing, fraud and corruption, you’d have less government control and more state rights. This administration will try any tactic to divide and distort, by using FEELINGS over FACT, and tactic that has made ‘useful idiots, created socialism and Marxists in our schools, businesses, churches. community orgs, media and celebrities. The only way of getting the corruption out, is to bleed it dry, with no tax dollars, fines and penalties. Same as those funding this by what they by, wear, eat, watch, read, churches they go to and celebrities they pay to watch.

  • Ferrarello

    I never use the word “raciest” unless I’m talking about Eric Holder. He doesn’t even try to hide it. Not sure if he thinks whites are “genetically inferior”, so maybe he’s only a raging bigot or someone with extreme prejudice.

  • R. Cook

    “if the end result is the election of black Democrats. It has become the mirror image of the old Jim Crow South.”

    They can be white if they are Democrat and subscribe to the racial victimhood ideology.

  • John Hardman

    Holder is a hater. That is a statement of fact, not some extremists bigoted thoughts on this subject. The very first words out of the mouth of Eric Holder in his first week in office was this really foolish statement,
    “America is a Nation of Cowards”. He didn’t elaborate on that statement, but it was to throw down the gauntlet over past sins of our fathers relating to racial issues. It was Holders opinion that white folks don’t have the courage to make reperations or take an objective view of the country during slavery times.
    He conviently overlooks the many thousands of white soldiers that died on battlefields of the South during the War to abolish slavery..the Civil War.
    I believe Eric holder is so consumed with the urge for retaliation that will in time cost him his job and happiness..what a shame for his family and loved ones.

  • Daniel from TN

    I know Holder will not allow The New Black Panthers and others to be prosecuted at the federal level, but why have I not heard anything about prosecution under state law. Surely, some states have equivalent state laws.

  • Sthumpich

    Apparently the Justice Dept does not know what JUSTICE IS !!!!!!!!!!!

    • Gas Passer

      I also don’t think that the Supreme Court of the United States doesn’t know what JUSTICE IS because they will not hear ANY cases that deal with Obunga’s birth certificate.

    • Bill

      There is something seriously wrong with the Supreme Court that they do not take up legitimate issues dealing with Obama and this administration. Do Obama and Holder have something on Chief Justice Roberts?? Can Supreme Court justices be recalled or impeached. I know that with Obama as president that will tip the balance in the court, but what we have now is not working.

  • The Enemy

    Caucasians, for the most part, have gotten beyond racial prejudice. But racism is being kept alive by black folks and politicians who seek political gain or social status by perpetuating it.

    • Gas Passer

      Very true!

  • Shane

    When liberals and black activists say that “America is a racist society,” that is just a code phrase for their belief that most white Americans are racists. Many liberals have the delusional belief that only whites can be racist. I consider that belief to be racist.

  • Howard-the Banger Club

    Talk about greed, dishonest, just a bunch of crooks. The Tomopah Solar Co in Harry Reed’s Nevada is getting $737 million from Obama’s DOE. Project to produce 110 mega watt power system employ 46 permanent workers. That’s costing us 16 million per job. One of the investment partners is Pacific Corporate Group (PCG) PCG executive director is Ron Pelosi, Nancy Pelosi brother in law. This is Obama’s Chicago style croney capitalism. Take time and email your senators/congress/Obama or anyone else you can think of in our government and ask if there is a formal work statement, government specifications, small & minority own businesses being considered who have the capability, formal request for quotation. If this is sole source ask them why–what justifies only one company. Do all you can to stop this and demand competative bidding.

    • Kay

      What about a couple of trillion missing from Federal Reserve. Nobody seems to know where it went or to who it went. Audit the Fed!!

  • Joe Chapman

    I would like to set everybody straight about something, including the person that wrote this article, about the term “reverse discrimination”. Actually & legally, there is no such thing. The Civil Rights Act Of 1964 outlaws discrimination because of race, religion, sex, or ethnicity. This means that anyone that is discriminates against a person because of their race, no matter what race it is, is in violation of a Federal law. If it happens to be somebody that is or isn’t Caucasion, & he or she discriminates against someone because the person is Caucasion, it is racial discrimination, not “reverse discrimination”, simple as that!

  • Adrian Vance

    When Mr. Holder said, “White people are cowards on race,” and dropped the New Black Panther prosecution he should have been fired. Now he should go to jail and that he will not is proof of our total corruption.

  • gator

    i am so sick of how our country and the liberals cater to blacks and other minorities. this is why blacks will never let go of thier persecution complex and always play the martyr and use the race card! Boo Hoo! Woe is me! they claim they want to be treated as equal and yet accept extra points on all police, fire dept., civil and government exams for race and more for minority women. they have the same educational opportunities as the rest of us and yet require extra points to compete with a white man on exams for employment! compete on a level playing field! i would be ashamed if i needed an edge to compete on an exam against anyone else! get rid of “affirmative action”! it is destroying our country! if you are not qualified for a job then you should not get it! if you are too stupid, lazy, uneducated go flip burgers at Mceedee’s!
