Eric Holder: Whites Haven’t Suffered Enough to be Victims of Racism

Merriam-Webster defines “racism” as:

  1. A belief that race is the primary determinant of human traits and capacities and that racial differences produce an inherent superiority of a particular race.
  2. Racial prejudice or discrimination.

My lawyer-writer friend, Glenn, sent me this article with his very apt comment:

I have stopped responding to charges of “racism” because I don’t know what the word means. I’m reminded of this excerpt from Lewis Carroll’s Through the Looking Glass, Chapter 6:

“When I use a word,” Humpty Dumpty said in rather a scornful tone, “it means just what I choose it to mean — neither more nor less.”
“The question is,” said Alice, “whether you can make words mean so many different things.”
“The question is,” said Humpty Dumpty, “which is to be master – – that’s all.”

~EowynHOLDER: Whites Can’t Be Victims of Racial Injustice Because They Haven’t Suffered Enough
By Johnathon Burns – Big Journalism – March 2, 2011
Or, The Continuing Media Narrative of ‘Acceptable’ Racism.
Dr. King once said, “Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.” Apparently, US Attorney General Eric Holder didn’t get the memo.
As reported and applauded by Politico, Holder announced Tuesday that he was fed up with listening to whining whites who claim the justice department deliberately blocks investigations of black on white racism. Predictably, the Establishment media sides with Holder.
“Think about that,” Holder said. “When you compare what people endured in the South in the 60s to try to get the right to vote for African Americans, to compare what people subjected to that with what happened in Philadelphia, which was inappropriate .. .to describe it in those terms I think does a great disservice to people who put their lives on the line for my people,” said Holder, who is black.
Holder noted that his late sister-in-law, Vivian Malone Jones, helped integrate the University of Alabama. “To compare that kind of courage, that kind of action, to say some Black Panther incident is of greater concern to us, historically, I think just flies in the face of history,” Holder said with evident exasperation.”
So the obvious takeaway from this is that some racism is worse than others. Some racist injustice is worthy of prosecution, other racism is not. Apparently, whites simply haven’t suffered enough. They don’t deserve legal protection. So, any injustices committed against white people should be swept under the rug. It’s not worth Eric Holder’s time.
One might be shocked by the statements. One might even wonder why the media chooses not to attack Holder for his patently racist statements. After all, were a white man to suggest this, his career would be over in a hail of media machine-gun fire. Reporters would fall over themselves to attack him, and his family would be ruthlessly attacked in the community. His kids would have to stay home from school (assuming their teachers weren’t on strike, anyway), and he’d get hate mail and death threats for decades.
But the Establishment Media’s lack of moral indignation isn’t surprising. In America, it’s blasphemous to even suggest that whites could be victims of racial injustice.
Whites are the permanent “oppressors” in the mainstream media narrative, while all other races are the permanent “victims.” In fact, “white” and “oppressor” are essentially synonymous — meaning: whites are the bad guys. All whites have been lumped together and typecast in a bad reality TV show. Because whites as a group do not have clean hands, therefore, they are denied the right of seeking justice.
If that isn’t stereotyping, I don’t know what is.
The larger issue, of course, is that “whites as racists” constitutes the fundamental lens through which Holder views issues in America. During the healthcare debate, Holder likened opposition of Obamacare to opposition to civil rights. Not civil rights in the sense that, “all Americans share civil rights,” mind you, but “Civil Rights” as in the struggle for black legal equality in America during the 40’s-60’s. Translation: those who oppose Obamacare are racists. Such language is naked race-baiting and scapegoating. But Holder doesn’t care. Whites are the bad guy bogeymen, trotted out when it gets tough to pass legislation. And his recent comments reveal his paradigm: white Americans are generally racist and any time they oppose any Obama policy or “injustice” at the hands of a racist group, they’re either being racists or they’re simply not entitled to equal protection because they haven’t suffered as much as other groups.
Nobody is seeking to belittle the suffering of other people, here, but America seeks equality. This means equal protection under the law, not equality in historical racial suffering.
Holder’s statements are completely sadistic, and they betray his motives. He has a score to settle, and by his figure whites have a lot more suffering to endure before they have a right to expect justice from the “Justice Department.” Satisfying vendettas is for Mob Bosses, not the US Attorney General’s Office.
The Establishment media’s silence regarding his racist statements demonstrates agreement and approval. Such hypocrisy. Such shame. Such racism.

Putting anything in a historical context always makes it look weaker. I’m sure Holocaust survivors would be willing to ask if Holder’s sister-in-law was really braver than them. I’m sure Corrie Ten Boom would take the Pepsi challenge on who had to face more intimidating enemies. I’m sure the millions who starved to death in the Potato Famine might ask Holder if the British government was more corrupt than JFK’s America. Oh, I sound like I’m belittling the civil rights movement? That’s what happens when you try to claim that *any* one example of suffering/discrimination is worse than another. You… Read more »

The “it’s payback time, Whitey” attitude is the same in third world countries where one group or tribe takes over and proceeds to loot the treasury and treat everybody else badly because it’s “their turn.” Bend over, here comes “social justice.”

I hate to say it, but when 90% of Holders “his people” think this way, America is heading down the same road as South Africa. It’s not possible to reason with a group of uneducated people this large in any country?

There is a popular concept within the ranks of the deep-liberal-think pot that says that only white people are racists and that only white people can never be victimized by racism. It’s a convenient, if not entirely self serving political platform from which to toss such gibberish because it denies that much of its support comes from racists that are not white. The whole concept is plugged back into itself, feeding from its own myopic views and maintained by what amounts to a group circle-jerk. Martin Luther King Jr. had a dream of someday when all men would be equal… Read more »
