Civil Rights only for "Minorities"

The Department of Justice, hostile to claims made by non "minorities". The case of the Black Panther voter intimidation swept under the rug. Why do "whites" not have rights? What part of EQUAL RIGHTS does the DOJ not understand? http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2010/09/24/voting-rights-official-calls-black-panther-dismissal-travesty-justice/

The Black Panther movemnet that was not a movement. We actually held comgressional hearings on this non-sense. I thought we should recall who ever suggested that we have hearings on two guys calling themselves Black Panthers who were trying to intemidate one of the most democratic districts in the country. What a joke, these guys were not even smart enough to cross into a contentious district where they might have actually enfluenced someone. Not to mention that they did not know the canidates name that they were supposed to be helping.. Quick, Quick, I see a conspiracy. Oh wait, it is just two idiots out wandering around.

"were trying to intemidate one of the most democratic districts in the country." So I guess you agree with the sentiment that it's not intimidation, if you are intimidating the minority, is that it? So I guess the KKK can now deploy hooded racists to polls in Alabama right? It's a solid red state, so if they have a couple goons yelling the N-word at black people at voting locations it's ok. These idiots aren't even the real problem. The REAL issue is why the Obama Administration is openly violating the constitution by not providing the same legal protections of the Voting Rights Act to white people. We now have multiple people from the justice department who have testified under oath that it is the policy of the administration to not prosecute minorities in civil rights cases. Are you really ok with that?

I believe that the DOJ lawyers had won a default, the men did not show up to defend themselves but before the final decision the AG dismissed the charges. If this is so then he is acting as judge and jury.

I am not ok with the rediculous converstaion that this has started. The Black Panthers have not been in existance for almost forty years yet continue to get roused from the grave for conversations, such as this one, that real news people should know better. No I am not alright with anyone disrupting the voting process. But, as the cops who were first called to investigate this incident they could not determine that these guys had done anything wrong besides being stupid. They were trying to intimidate a district that is 87% democrat. I don't think they had much chance of swinging the election. I saw the hearings and during a discussion of this case the AG put out some edicts. Nor was I alright when the roads were blocked all over Florida during the 2000 election. I was not happy that parts of Ohio had more votes for the president then they had registered voters in those districts and no I am not alright with anyone mucking with our system. But that pale's in comparison to the rediculuos non-sense conversation's started in the media by folks who should have some real issues to discuss.

I had a white male friend who applied for a job. He had experience and the educational requirements for the position. The job was given to a minority person who had a similar educational background but no experience in a similar job. My friend was not going to fight it but brought it up in a similar with a lawyer and was told that for him to win the case he would have to prove that he was overwhelming superior to the minority while the minorities only had to prove that they were similarly qualified. Both had equal standing under the law but were held to different standards of proof. In the case of the black Panthers the men failed to appear in court and were found guilty but before sentencing AG Holder ordered the DOJ lawyers to withdraw the charges and the men were free to proceed without having to face the charges. Contrast that to what typically happens to a white police officer who is accused by a minority of abuse or mistreatment. 1. Internal Review if found not be guilty 2. Could face a hearing before the Police and Fire Commission If not guilty 3. Could be charged in Criminal Court If found not guilty 4. Could be sued in Civil Court if not guilty 5. State Civil Rights charges could be filed if not guilty 6. Federal Civil Rights charges could be field if not guilty may be free. In steps 1 & 2 the police union or association may help with legal expenses. After that the officer is on his own and will often settle to avoid the extremely large legal expenses. A famous case that demonstrates this is the Rodney King Case. All four Police Officers were acquitted in criminal court. Later the four were retried on Federal Civil Rights Charges and two were acquitted and two other were found guilty and did prison time. Is there a double standard in this country? I would say yes and it is if you are a minority you receive special treatment under the law. I will issue this challenge to myloters. Can anyone show me a case where a minority was charged with a hate crime for committing a crime against a white male?

Wow. I'm surprised that hasn't been national news. Seriously. And not to intentionally turn it around, but I do suspect that if a minority were held hostage and beaten simply because they were "black" or "Asian" etc, then it would have made national headlines. But... I'm no ingrate. I'm happy to see these men will be charged appropriately. Not assuming their guilt, of course; we'll see what comes of it.

Good job Latrivia. Sorry Zephyr, the scumbags who nearly killed Reginald Denny were NOT charged with hate crimes. They received pathetically weak sentences as if they had stolen a pack of gum. It was one of the worst miscarriages of justice I've seen in this country.

The corrupt DOJ, under the corrupt Eric Holder understands quite well what "equal rights" are. They just don't believe whites or anyone they deem unequal should have any rights, so they are doing their level worst to remove all of our rights and protections from us. They do not care a whit for truth or justice, which is why the Dept. title is inappropriate for the likes of traitor Holder. Remember, Holder's law firm represents terrorists. He also wants to confer our Constitutional rights on terrorists while removing them from us. Holder, Obumma, and the whole fake "administration", including its liberal and radical, and Muslim allies are racists and haters of all things America.

Wish I could do more than just "talk" about it. I know at least two pastors who speak truth to lies re the Obama thugs' racism, Rev. James David Manning and Rev. Jesse Lee Peterson. Others, like Alan Keyes, Alan West, and Larry Elder refuse to play the race game.

As long as we have foxes guarding the various government hen houses we will never see justice until Obummer and his toadies are out of office.

I agree and I believe this applies in all areas, not just the DOJ
