Investor's Business Daily joins American Thinker in responding to Eric Holder's challenge to avoid cowardice on racial issues. The esteemed publication writes:
Across the U.S., mobs of black youths are organizing on Facebook to loot stores and beat whites. Yet none dare call the "flash mob" attacks hate crime, least of all the attorney general.
The Associated Press is reporting that at least one of those arrested in the Wisconsin State Fair beatings said the mob was targeting whites, making it a hate crime. Where is Eric Holder's civil rights division? About this epidemic of black-on-white assaults, we hear nothing.
America has watched the UK explode into riots, and meanwhile we have our own symptoms of riot potential showing up, and the American media is turning a blind eye. This is very scary territory, where the our news organs become fully propagandistic in nature, actively ignoring obvious realities.
As always, IBD does not pull its punches:
To Holder, blacks are the permanent victims. But his department's own data say otherwise. In most cases of interracial crimes, the victim is white and the perp is black. Black criminals choose white victims 45% of the time, while whites victimize blacks 3% of the time. More than twice as many whites are murdered by a black than cases of a white murdering blacks.
This is one to savor. Honest voices are telling the truth about the serious race problems we have now, and the Obama administration's heinous role in exacerbating them.
Read the whole thing. The truth will out.
