I looked different with this huge Afro and hippy clothes, but I thought, if they want to stare well here I am.
I was raised as an individual not as a black person.
Which makes sense... because I'm white.
I wonder if these men had been wearing white robes, this case would have been thrown out? I'm not saying that I support any voter intimidation but this is just further proof of America's double standard in race relations.
I'm reaching my limit.
The following comes from this source: http://www.powerlineblog.com/archives/2009/07/024156.php
DOJ's decision to dismiss the case has been mysterious, in part, because it came after the defendants had defaulted. So the case had been won, and Justice decided to give it away.
Republicans in Congress have tried to find out who decided to let the Panthers off, and why, but they have been stonewalled by the Justice Department and the Obama administration. The Washington Times has been investigating, however, and reports that the decision to drop the case was approved by Associate Attorney General Thomas J. Perrelli. Perrilli is a Democratic Party activist who raised $500,000 for President Obama's campaign and was rewarded with the number three spot in the Department of Justice.
The U.S. Commission on Civil Rights said in a June 16 letter to Justice that the decision to drop the case caused it "great confusion, since the NBPP members were "caught on video blocking access to the polls, and physically threatening and verbally harassing voters during the Nov. 4, 2008, general election.
"Though it had basically won the case, the [Civil Rights Division] took the unusual move of voluntarily dismissing the charges , the letter said. "The division's public rationale would send the wrong message entirely -- that attempts at voter suppression will be tolerated and will not be vigorously prosecuted so long as the groups or individuals who engage in them fail to respond to the charges leveled against them."
This incident is one of a series of events that suggest the Obama administration has gone to considerable lengths to politicize the Department of Justice.
For a person who supposedly transcends race, Obama seems to have polarized this nation more than any president in recent history. His recent comments towards the Cambridge Police Department show that his 20 year affiliation with Rev. Wright are far more deeper than he would like us to believe. Obama is so arrogant that despite almost every group except the Congressional Black Caucus calling on him to apologize, he refuses to do so. Even black officers in the Cambridge Police Department have backed Sgt. Crowley. The truth is if either you or I had said half of what Gates said to the police officers who were there to protect HIS house, we would have been charged with more than just disturbing the peace. Gates played the race card and successfully turned this into a discussion of racial profiling. There was no racial profiling here but with Obama's help, the spotlight was turned off Gates and his comments... which clearly were racial... plus he showed street gutter class with his comments about the sergeants mother. The underlying truth that most people seem completely blind to is that there is a double standard of racism in this country. Obama's friends and Supreme Court nominee have shown the truth of this. No fucking beer will change that.
