Eric Holder: Chief Justice John Roberts Is Wrong On Race

U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder speaks on stage during the annual meeting of the American Bar Association in San Francisco, California August 12, 2013

In a rare move, Attorney General Eric Holder took direct aim at U.S. Chief Justice John Roberts on issues of race during a commencement speech Saturday.

"Chief Justice John Roberts has argued that the path to ending racial discrimination is to give less consideration to the issue of race altogether. This presupposes that racial discrimination is at a sufficiently low ebb that it doesn’t need to be actively confronted," Holder said, speaking at the historically black Morgan State University. "In its most obvious forms, it might be. But discrimination does not always come in the form of a hateful epithet or a Jim Crow-like statute. And so we must continue to take account of racial inequality, especially in its less obvious forms, and actively discuss ways to combat it."

Eric Holder is becoming more aggressive US-AG. as a black man he can't ignore all these attacks on civil rights and social equality. It is rare you have an AG criticizing a Supreme Court Justice. I think Holder will be remembered as an activist AG and because he had to be, what would he look as a black man to allow these far right wing and insane Republicans have their way? He said nah I'm not going out like that! :box:

Clyde why do you think President Obama is not more forceful in exposing Republican un-democratic policies, attacks on social and income inequality, and oligarchy strong agenda? I have to say that Obama's TTP (Trans-Pacific Partnership) so called free trade agreement greatly favors transnational corps but hurts rank and file Americans that will cause more jobs to be outsourced. He was suppose to be about change that is the same BS. He aint perfect but that TTP is not something that comes from someone looking out for all Americans only the top 1% benefit from so-called Free Trade Agreements. Clinton did the same thing with NAFTA. That tells you who is really running the country, its banks and huge transnational corps, when is enough be enough?
