Thomas Sowell on Eric Holder and Reverse Racism.

Reverse Racism.

Check out Texas Fred, on the Holder diversion:

"Does anyone feel just a little bit skeptical, a tiny bit suspicious that as Eric Holder is about to be subpoenaed in the Fast and Furious debacle, as Obama and his *house of cards* is so close to falling, that all of a sudden there’s an evil plot to assassinate the Saudi ambassador brought up and SPLATTERED all over the news?"

"OK, so, how about this? Manssor Arbabsiar was arrested Sept. 29 and has been in custody since then. That’s 2 weeks that Obama and Holder have had this guy *on ice*, and all of a sudden, TODAY, it’s a BIG story?"

Read it all.

Kinda puts a valid and credible spin on what is transpiring.

And the left calls him an Oreo. Because he won't go along with them. Because he refuses to go along with anything but the truth. Because he speaks the truth openly and endangers their credibility.

Tells you a lot about them and what they are trying to do.

Damnit, Mike - THERE'S NO SUCH THING AS "REVERSE RACISM!"! If there were, it would indicate that "racism" it's the sole province of whites! - And we all know that's not so!

There is only racism - one kind - regardless of who is doing it!

This is a no-brainer. We all know that Obama was elected by blacks with the idea that there would be pay-backs. These people voted him in for only one reason - he was black, and once in office, they would all get a piece of the action.

Remember the woman standing in line for some of the "Obama stash?" Remember the NAACP calling for black power? Racism isn't dead, it has just switched polarity.

Racism: The notion that one group of people is inherently more virtuous and worthy than others based on physical traits, made into a "religion" like Bolshevism, Scientology, Black Rock worship, etc.

Current usage of "racism" is as an attack against Caucasians, who are alleged to be "genetically racist" while all other peoples of the world who prefer their own tribe and similar people are free of such deep-seated group-thinking.

You can borrow a lot of money and spend 10+ years in a public university getting advanced degrees in anti-racist topics. Woe unto to you if you have pink skin and do this. See ya at the "Occupy Place X" rally.

The notion of "Reverse Racism" is merely revenge for alleged past present and future wrongs, and addresses the question "Who shall rule?". The question is the most offensive thing when presented in this manner, because it assumes that the co-tribesmen, hangers-on, and descendants of those who were wronged have maintained the moral virtue and ability of their forebears.

Free men will not be ruled by those who claim the moral right to do so because of their "historical victim" claim. We will determine who is best to represent us every other fall season and eject them in favor of a new man when they fail at that.

Accusing and convicting someone of "racism" is not an American notion. We don't (or shouldn't) convict people of thought crimes, we convict them for behavior crimes. Eric Holder has plenty of behavior crimes and "dereliction of duty" is the least of them.

If Mr. Holder was directly ordered to do/not-do these things by authority above him, his testimony may earn him some leniency. Let's hear it.
