Where is Mr Obama’s “post-racial future”?
by Justin Sink
Attorney General Eric Holder said Sunday he and President Obama have been targets of “a racial animus” by some of the administration’s political opponents.
“There’s a certain level of vehemence, it seems to me, that’s directed at me [and] directed at the president,” Holder told ABC. “You know, people talking about taking their country back. … There’s a certain racial component to this for some people. I don’t think this is the thing that is a main driver, but for some there’s a racial animus.”
Holder said the nation is in “a fundamentally better place than we were 50 years ago.”
First: I profoundly disagree on a logical and fundamental basis.
This administration’s paranoia makes Nixon’s look like that of children.
This administration sees racists in every closet, under every bed, behind every closed door. And speaking of closed doors — the Obama administration is roundly referred to as the least transparent in history — as many reporters bemoan.
He also stood by his controversial comments made during Obama’s first year in office, in which he said the U.S. was a “nation of cowards” when it comes to race.
On that comment I too profoundly agree, though in a manner I’m sure is 180-degrees opposed to what Mr Holder means. Yes, this nation is full of cowards when it comes to race, because they fear to confront facts about race and to call blacks out when they are themselves racist. It is the GOWPs who are cowards — the Guilty, Overeducated White People. Agreed, Mr Holder: cowards.
But to casually distill disagreement down to racism? Frankly, I’m tired of this ancient racist pap. And it too is starting to wear on the American public.
I ask: who’s the racist here, Mr Holder?
Check your mirror.
Eric Holder: why have you lost 12 decisions, 9 to 0, via SCOTUS, sir?
“We Ask DNC Members: How Much of Opposition To Obama is Racist?
by Matt Vespa
On February 28, MRCTV’s Dan Joseph decided to stop by the DNC winter meeting to ask committee members just how much of the opposition to President Obama is racist.
Joseph asked, How much of the opposition is race-based? And how much is policy based?
One commiteewoman said about half of the president’s detractors are against him because of his race, while another said it was over 50%.
There you have it. Anyone opposing Mr Obama simply must be a racist.

For years, the Federal Communications Commission has allowed TV stations to execute joint operating agreements allowing themselves to outsource tasks such as advertising sales to group owners with more resources.
But when conservative columnist and entrepreneur Armstrong Williams recently purchased two stations, making him one of America’s few black owners of local TV affiliates, the commission unexpectedly decided to use his acquisition as a test case to review the practice.
The actions — coupled with other recent FCC decisions such as a plan to survey newsrooms that alarmed news media before it was withdrawn — have injected questions about whether a commission set up by Congress to be nonpartisan is now acting with a political litmus test under the Obama administration.
