Attorney General Eric Holder, who has suggested that critics of the Obama administration are motivated by race and referred to America as a "nation of cowards" on race issues while blasting Americans who resist more gun control laws, suggested that those opposed to President Barack Obama's policy agenda of "fundamental transformation" are quietly prejudiced.

In his Saturday commencement address at Morgan State University, a historically black university in Maryland, Holder said that even though there are no more "separate but equal" laws on the 60th anniversary of the Brown v. Board of Education decision, the "vestiges of state-sanctioned discrimination continue to reverberate across the country even today."

POLL: Should Voter ID be required in every state?

He said America is done a disservice when they "trade the noisy discord of honest, tough, and vigorous debate for the quiet prejudice of inaction – and the cold silence of consent." To Holder, dialogue is insufficient to address the "hidden" racism in society but is "a necessary first step that must lead to action."

After comparing Obamacare to the Civil Rights Act of 1965, Holder suggested that those opposed to Obama's "year of action" are silently displaying their prejudices and suggested that "action" is needed in voting rights, school discipline, and criminal justice reform. He blasted voter ID laws and "zero-tolerance school discipline practices" that "affect black males at a rate three times higher than their white peers." The Justice Department's school guideline reforms have been heavily criticized for effectively forcing schools to enact "de facto racial quotas" in school discipline.

  • No, we are opposed to the illegal transformation of our country.  We are opposed to obama stripping our rights away that he has NO RIGHT to do.  We are opposed to obama only upholding laws that he chooses.  In general, we are just opposed to obama and ALL of his cabinet flunkies.

  • Lets see now.... 96% of the blacks who voted..voted for Obama... Now I would call that racist if they couldn't get free phones, food stamps, or other Obama stasch. But can you blame them?

    Only all the free stuff isn't coming from Obama now is it ? Its coming from the American tax payers.. Currently Obama is still holding the gun.!

  • JONATHAN DAVID MOOERS - Thanks for the visual! I look forward to the newscast. Parasites.

  • the race card is worn out torn to shreds don't they get it we are sickened by the obamma administration part and parcel.

  • Th Race Baiter blaming the whites for what he has created??????????

    We buried our prejudices years aga and Obama and Holder are trying their darndest to  bring it all back and I call that disgusting.All they are doing is creating more problems with the Race Issues.  I am sick of him and his criminal activities.

  • Now that speech is NOT bringing all Americans together as a homogenous society.  This man is a traitor and a threat to all of us in the USA!  

  • Angry-Eric With-Holder, Barry-the Ferry-Barack Soetoro-Obama and Nancy Hysteria-Insanity Pelosi must be hung for treason.

    Everyone, see this visual:

    Eric, Barry and Nancy being walked up the elevated gallows platform steps on the Washington Mall, cussing and threatening common folks down below for their guns-and-religion peasant ways: "Do you know who I am?", "You and your family will pay for this mistake!" ; "Put those cameras down!"; " You, sergeant, handcuff this phony executioner or you will be fired with no pension!" Etc.,etc, etc.

    In similar fashion, Google Romania's Christmas Day execution of Elena Ceausescu, Deputy Prime Minister's wife, in 1989, where she threatens her personal firing squad right up to the moment she died from several rounds fired into her. She was a fraud intellectual, manipulative, arrogant, self-indulgent, ruthless- just like the lawless treasonous assembly of failed human debris ruining America today, namely, Holder-Obama-Pelosi.  




  • Dear Mr. Holder,
    I am neither a coward or fan of you or our so called President. I am prejudiced when I see incompetent idiots like you and our so called President taking our country down the current path. Unlike you and our so called President I believe in our Constitution and our laws and am ashamed of what you two have done to greatest country on Earth. I sleep well at night knowing that the people and The Lord you have forsaken will get their judgement day.
  • I'm sick and tired of listening to their BS and if they think we are buying the crap, then they are as stupid as they think we are.
