And how does he know that they're racist? Because so many black people are arrested and convicted of crimes! According to Holder, this "overrepresentation of young black men" represents "fundamental unfairness" in the system rather than, oh, just going out on a limb here, too many of them breaking the freaking law.
Of course, Holder's real purpose is simply to be shouting "racism!" from the rooftops yet again in order to stir up passions and hatred in time for midterm elections which are looking decidedly dicey for the Democrats.
And in fact, "running on racism" is clearly the theme all Progressives are using to try to distract from this administration's many failures and the ongoing Obamacare disaster.
For instance, while in Malaysia, Barack Obama used the offensive comments of one man, LA Clippers owner Donald Sterling, to smear our entire country - citing Sterling's remarks as proof that "the United States continues to wrestle with the legacy of race and slavery and segregation."
For the record, Sterling's hideously racist comment was "don't bring black people to my basketball games," which stands in stark contrast to Barack Obama's entirely non-racist comment "don't bring white people to my Brother's Keeper program."
The liberal media has also been having eye-rolling, explosively moist orgasms while promoting the story of "domestic terrorist" cattle rancher Cliven Bundy who used the word "Negro," and rather artlessly wondered aloud if black Americans weren't perhaps better off under the old slavery (picking cotton in fields with no hope of escape) than they are under the new slavery (picking up welfare checks in public housing with no hope of escape).
Which, frankly, was an idiotic thing for him to say - especially since polysyllables and philosophic musings on incendiary topics are a lot harder to wrangle than cattle. For the record, Cliven, the old slavery was immeasurably worse. But that doesn't make the Left's new slavery any more acceptable.
Despite the Progressives' desire to use racism as their battle cry for the elections, it is their policies which have made things worse for black Americans on virtually every measurable index - especially during the administration of Barack "My Daughters Carry The Blood Of Slaves" Obama, Joe "They Want To Put Y'all Back In Chains" Biden and, oh yeah, Eric "They Hate Me Because I'm Black" Holder.
But troublesome facts like those are easy enough to dismiss, disguise, or bury entirely - especially if done so with the force of law. Don't believe us? Then consider the recent unanimously passed bill in California which instructs public schools to include curriculum about the "racial significance of Barack Obama's presidency" being a "historic step towards equality in the United States."
As the midterms approach, don't be surprised if there is an executive order requiring all news outlets to report the same blatant lie.
