Instead of trying to be a leader who brings people together, Obama sends his Attorney General out to stoke the flames of racial hatred.
Via Red Alert Politics:
Attorney General Eric Holder spoke out against “Stand Your Ground” laws in his speech in front of the NAACP on Tuesday and strongly implied that racism was a factor in George Zimmerman’s acquittal.
Florida’s “Stand Your Ground” law, which was heavily debated after Trayvon Martin was shot in February 2012, allows one to respond with force when attacked outside of the home. Holder warned that such laws allow for too much violence in the name of self-defense, adding that it is ‘common sense’ to retreat if possible, instead of resorting to force. […]
Holder sympathized with Martin’s family in his speech and recalled his own personal struggles involving racial issues. He said Martin’s death last year caused him to have a conversation with his 15-year-old son about the issues he may face as a young black man.
The Attorney General confirmed that the Department of Justice is continuing their open investigation into the case, as well as again inferring there was racism in the Zimmerman verdict.
“We must confront the underlying attitudes, the mistaken beliefs and the unfortunate stereotypes that serve too often as the basis for police action and private judgments,” Holder said.
