MORE “Clown Prince” obama Bullshit!
    Anyone remember the “Clown Prince’s”  Campaign of Fluff when he was referred to as being the first ‘post-racism’ president??  This ‘Mulatto Messiah’ has reversed himself as usual doing little else besides subtly, underhandedly promoting racism!
    It sure made me feel better when (Attorney) ‘General’ Holder dismissed the voter intimidation case against members of the New Black Panther Party–NOT!! ‘General’ Holder defended his actions, thus:

“The notion that we are enforcing any civil rights laws—voting or others—on the basis of race, ethnicity or gender is simply false.”

Black Panther Thugs

    For more than a year, RepublicRATs and others have been questioning why the obama regime reversed course on a federal lawsuit against two members of the New Black Panther Party, who were videotaped outside a Philadelphia polling station on Election Day 2008. The two were dressed in military-style uniforms, and one was holding a nightstick.   The issue escalated after a former Justice Department attorney and, more recently, a current Justice Department attorney alleged it was all part of an obama regime policy to avoid prosecuting minorities, an allegation the Justice Department has repeatedly denied.  Asked why a current Justice Department attorney would make such a claim about his own employer, ‘General’ Holder said:

“I have no idea, but there’s no basis in fact for that charge.”

    Christopher Coates, former voting chief for the department’s Civil Rights Division, spoke under oath before the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights, in a long-awaited appearance that had been stonewalled by the Justice Department for nearly a year.  Coates discussed in depth the DOJ’s decision to dismiss intimidation charges against New Black Panther members who were videotaped outside a Philadelphia polling place in 2008 dressed in military-style uniforms—one was brandishing a nightstick—and allegedly hurling racial slurs.  The case has drifted in and out of the limelight over the past year as the commission has struggled to investigate it. Former Justice official J. Christian Adams fueled the controversy when he testified in July and accused his former employer of showing “hostility” toward cases that involved white victims and black defendants.   Nearly three months later, Coates backed up Adams’ claims. In lengthy and detailed testimony, he said the department cultivates a “hostile atmosphere” against “race-neutral enforcement” of the Voting Rights ActHe said civil rights attorneys stick to cases that involve minority victims, and he said the Black Panther case was dismissed following “pressure” by the NAACP and “anger” at the case within the Justice Department itself“That anger was the result of their deep-seated opposition to the equal enforcement of the Voting Rights Act against racial minorities and for the protection of white voters who have been discriminated against,” he said.  He said a 2005 case against a black official in Mississippi over voter intimidation claims had stirred a backlash in the department and from civil rights groups—and that the New Black Panther case was no different.

Black Panther Thugs, Again

    Since last year, Coates has been transferred to the U.S. attorney’s office in South Carolina. He that the Justice Department told him not to testify before the commission after he was first subpoenaed in December 2009; in testifying Friday, he claimed protection from retaliation under “whistleblower” laws.  Three weeks ago, the Justice Department’s inspector general announced he would launch an investigation into “more broadly the overall enforcement of civil rights laws by the Voting Section” of the Civil Rights Division, including “information about cases such as the New Black Panther Party matter and others.”
    The former Justice Department attorney, current conservative blogger J. Christian Adams, told the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights there was an “open hostility toward equal enforcement in a colorblind way of the voting rights laws.”
Christopher Coates who was heavily involved in the initial filing of the New Black Panther Party case, echoed that allegation, telling the commission there has been a “hostile atmosphere” within the Civil Rights Division “against race-neutral enforcement” of voting rights laws. Coates also said he attended a lunch meeting in September 2009, during which a top Justice Department official told those gathered that the obama regime was only interested in prosecuting voting rights cases that would help minoritiesThe Justice Department tried to block his testimony, citing “longstanding Department of Justice policy” to avoid disclosing “confidential internal deliberations.”
John S. Wilson, Jr.,–executive director of the White House Initiative on Historically Black Colleges and Universities–said the department’s Office for Civil Rights was evaluating data on state appropriations to compare amounts given to historically black colleges with those given to traditionally white institutions. The office, he said, is developing strategies to improve any disparities and will announce more details about its plans for action at a September conference held by the White House Initiative on Historically Black Colleges and Universities.
    What does the White House propose to do about the Mexicans/Mexican-Americans/ Hispanics? Will the White House Initiative on Educational Excellence for Hispanic Americans require “fair” and “equitable” spending on Hispanic-serving institutions as well? (And if not, why not?) The Hispanic Association of Colleges and Universities seems to have far more members than there are HBCUs, and they would seem equally to deserve “fair” and “equitable” treatment.
Anyone who thought the obama regime would, finally, allow us to move beyond race must now be having second (or third or fourth) thoughts.
