|White America is nothing but Lambchops|
Recently, Eric “My People” Holder – the Attorney General of the Department of Justice – spoke to the NAACP branch in Detroit. His words – spoken in a 90 percent Black city that no longer has the money to put out fires that ravage abandoned buildings – dealt with Trayvon Martin, the deceased victim of an act of self-defense by George Zimmerman, who was posthumously named an honorary citizen of 71 percent Black Birmingham, Alabama.
Consequently, Birmingham Public Schools are the most homogenous of any big city in America (at 98 percent Black, BPS has a Blacker student enrollment than that of Detroit – roughly 91 percent Black), so Trayvon would have felt right at home in the cradle of the Civil Rights movement.
What were those words that Holder spoke (CNS News, Susan Jones, May 7, 2012)?:
Despite “significant” progress in civil rights, the nation is still struggling to “overcome injustice” and “eliminate disparities,” Attorney General Eric Holder told the Detroit chapter of the NAACP on Sunday.
The attorney general also mentioned Trayvon Martin by name, as he decried the violence and crime involving young people.
“This (violence) is an issue that has -– rightly -– garnered significant national attention in recent months, as our nation has struggled to make sense of the tragic shooting death of a Florida teenager named Trayvon Martin,” Holder said. “As this case moves through the legal system, Justice Department officials will continue to communicate closely with state and local authorities to ensure that community concerns are heard, tensions are alleviated, and – as with every investigation at every level – appropriate actions are guided by the facts and the law.”
The Justice Department is now investigating whether any federal civil rights laws were violated in Martin’s death at the hands of a neighborhood watch captain in Florida. The suspect, George Zimmerman, says he shot the 17-year-old black teenager in self-defense. The case has rallied civil rights activists, who blasted police for not immediately charging Zimmerman with a crime.
Holder on Sunday told the Detroit NAACP that “as we all know, the reality is that certain aspects of this case are far from unique. And incidents of violence involving young people are anything but rare.”
Holder told the gathering that both he and President Obama are “direct beneficiaries” of the work done by the NAACP. But he also said the group’s work is far from over: “[D]despite the significant, once-unimaginable advances that have marked the century since this group convened its first meetings…the unfortunate fact is that, in 2012, our nation’s long struggle to overcome injustice, to eliminate disparities, to bridge long-standing divisions, and to eradicate violence has not yet ended.”
‘Holder praised the Detroit NAACP for the way it is responding to the challenges it faces: “You’re fighting to safeguard civil rights, to ensure embattled voting rights, and to expand learning and employment opportunities in every community. And you’re working…to strengthen our criminal justice system, to achieve fairness in our immigration and sentencing policies, and to prevent and combat violence and crime, especially among our young people.”
Holder said the Obama administration has made an “unprecedented commitment” to protecting children’s safety. And he touted the Justice Department’s work in overcoming division and disparity:
“Over the past three years, the Department’s Civil Rights Division has filed more criminal civil rights cases than ever before, including record numbers of police misconduct, hate crimes, and human trafficking cases. We’ve moved aggressively to combat continuing racial segregation in schools and to eliminate discriminatory practices in our housing and lending markets.
“We’ve taken decisive action to vigorously enforce the 1965 Voting Rights Act, our nation’s most important civil rights statute, by challenging attempts to disenfranchise many of our fellow citizens.” Holder has criticized voter ID laws as discriminatory, and the Justice Department is challenging such laws in Texas and South Carolina.
“Across the administration, we’re working in a range of other innovative ways to achieve fairness and expand opportunity – from successfully advocating for the reduction of the unfair and unjust 100-to-1 sentencing disparity between crack and powder cocaine offenses – to launching a new, Department-wide Diversity Management Initiative ,” Holder said.
He urged the NAACP — which he counts as a partner to the Justice Department — to “take up the unfinished struggle for equal opportunity and justice.”
“The creation of that better America is within our grasp,” Holder said.
The creation of a better America is within our grasp? Fitting that Eric “My People” Holder gave this speech in Detroit, a city that Black people remade into their image. It wasn’t Democrats that looted Detroit, it was one-party rule in the Motor City that made it happen: Black rule.
Those goals of the NAACP are now intertwined with the operating procedure of the Justice Department: they are one and the same.
What does the “creation of that better America” look like? Well, simply look no further then the proposed ‘Trayvon Amendment’ that will one day be passed in Black-Run America (BRA) — [Washington Times, Stephen Dinan, May 7, 2012]:
Democrats backed off of their effort Tuesday to offer a “Trayvon amendment” to pressure states to drop their stand-your-ground laws after learning it was likely to be ruled out of order under the evening’s rules for debate on the House floor.
Rep. Keith Ellison, Minnesota Democrat, said he will still try to force a debate at a more “appropriate” time in the future, saying action is demanded by the case of Trayvon Martin, the Florida teenager who police said was shot dead in a street encounter with a neighborhood watch volunteer.
The Ellison amendment would have docked federal criminal justice grants to states that have stand-your-ground laws, which allow residents to use deadly force to respond to an attack without first having to retreat.
Florida’s version of the law has come under scrutiny after Trayvon’s death. George Zimmermann, a neighborhood watch volunteer, has been charged with murder in the case.
“Shoot-first laws make prosecutions harder because they presume the use of deadly force is reasonable,” Mr. Ellison said on the House floor Tuesday as he explained why he wanted to raise his amendment.
Civil Rights in 2012 America simply mean this: Black people are free to do whatever they damn well please, and no one – save the most depraved fan of Jim Crow – can oppose such a lofty expression of freedom.
“Equal opportunity and justice”…
Black people can do whatever they want in America, and anyone who points this out will feel the wrath of BRA.
The Song that never ends is the belief – shared by Holder – is that America hasn’t started to fulfill the promise of equality (National Review, John Fund, Infinite Affirmative Action?, March 6, 2012: “Affirmative action has been an issue since segregation practices,” he declared. “The question is not when does it end, but when does it begin. . . . When do people of color truly get the benefits to which they are entitled?”).
The Song That Never Ends.
All of America could resemble Detroit in 2012, and individuals like Eric “My People” Holder will still claim that some form of injustice ravages America like the fire the citizens of The Motor City can no longer afford to put out.
There is a war on white America. May the day come when White America decides to wake up and realize they could stop the mindless song that seemingly will never end, which threatens to turn all of the United States into just another Detroit or Birmingham.
I don’t think it would take that much for this epoch to end.
That day, the song ends for good.
