    1. George Orwell’s classic novel, “1984” resonates today because we are inundated with the kind of double-talk that Orwell identified as “doublethink.” It is the habit of claiming that black is white, in contradiction to the plain facts, when party loyalty demands it. Such as a doctrine of racialism in the Civil Rights Division of DOJ.

    2. The Civil Rights Division of the DOJ was set up in 1957 by President Eisenhower. The DOJ website proudly proclaims, “The Division has grown dramatically in both size and scope.,” and now has almost 400 lawyers, and the same number of support staff. Responsible for enforcing many laws…especially civil rights and voting laws.

    3. Doublethink. Imagine the Civil Rights Division being the welcoming home to beliefs that are repugnant to mainstream America, namely that civil rights laws do not protect everyone equally, but only certain select minorities. And that the Attorney-General himself, identifies with this belief! Doublethink.

    4. "For much of his life, Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. carried around something peculiar…an old clipping of a quote from Harlem preacher Reverend Samuel D. Proctor. Holder put the clipping in his wallet in 1971, when he was studying history at Columbia University, and kept it in wallet after wallet over the ensuing decades. What were Proctor’s words that Holder found so compelling? “Blackness is another issue entirely apart from class in America. No matter how affluent, educated and mobile [a black person] becomes, his race defines him more particularly than anything else.”…When asked to explain the passage, Holder replied, “It really says that… I am not the tall U.S. attorney, I am not the thin United States Attorney. I am the black United States attorney. And he was saying that no matter how successful you are, there’s a common cause that bonds the black United States attorney with the black criminal or the black doctor with the black homeless person.”…It may seem shocking to hear these racialist views ascribed to America’s top law enforcement officer. But to people who have worked inside the Civil Rights Division at the Department of Justice, these attitudes are perfectly familiar."

    a. “Has anyone asked Holder what exactly is the “common cause” that binds the black attorney general and the black criminal? More important, what should the black attorney general do about this common cause? Should the black criminal feel empathy for the black attorney general or more likely, do the favors only flow in one direction.

    Holder’s explanation of Proctor’s quote offers some key insights into our attorney generals’ worldview. First, being “more particular” than anything else, skin color limits and defines Americans- in other words, race comes first for Holder. Second, despite Americans’ widespread belief in trans-racial principles such as individual liberty and equal protection, blacks are expected to show solidarity with other blacks. And third, black law enforcement officers are expected to show this solidarity toward their racial compatriots, including black criminals.”

    Is this an idea, a principle that any of us should support?

    Or is it racial views in only one direction that are a bad idea???
