The New Black Panthers’ Unpunished Threats

George Zimmerman is facing charges of second-degree murder. A jury will decide his guilt or innocence. Here’s hoping the criminal-justice system cools rather than exacerbates the passions the killing of Trayvon Martin has raised.

But Attorney General Eric Holder isn’t helping. Wednesday, he appeared before the Reverend Al Sharpton’s National Action Network to praise Sharpton “for your partnership, your friendship, and your tireless efforts to speak out for the voiceless, to stand up for the powerless, and to shine a light on the problems we must solve, and the promises we must fulfill.”

This is the same Al Sharpton who has led several rallies against Zimmerman, in which he called for civil disobedience and an “occupation” of Sanford, Fla., where the shooting occurred, if an arrest wasn’t made.


This is the same Al Sharpton who has never apologized to Steven Pagones, the assistant district attorney he falsely accused of raping Tawana Brawley, a black teenager. The “dastardly deed” Sharpton accused Pagones of was found to be a complete fabrication. In 1998, Sharpton was found liable for seven defamatory statements he’d made against Pagones and ordered to pay $65,000.

Earlier in the 1990s, Sharpton had become famous exacerbating racial tensions in New York’s Crown Heights neighborhood, tensions that led to the killing of Anthony Graziosi. In 1995, Sharpton denounced the owners of Freddy’s Fashion Mart in Harlem as “bloodsuckers” and “white interlopers” over a rent dispute the business had with tenants. A short time later, a man entered Freddy’s and told all the black people present, patrons and employees alike, to leave. Once they did, the man firebombed the building, killing seven people — including a black security guard. Sharpton insisted he bore no responsibility for the incident, saying it was only a tenant/landlord dispute that had escalated out of control.Scissors-32x32.png

Holder is about race, not justice

A case study in divisive racial tactics

by Raquel Okyay


Eric Holder has dubiously performed his job description as Attorney General since taking office in Feb. 2009, and it comes as no surprise that he is proving to be the race baiter and subject avoider some warned us about.


At an allegedly long planned meeting with 150 Black ministers to discuss civil-rights issues, Holder, the first black US Attorney General, promised power he does not have and without justifiable evidence, convicts the Sanford police department for not being able to do their job properly, requiring the Justice Department to step in. Oh really?


After the shooting death of black teen, Trayvon Martin, by a white community watch volunteer, George Zimmerman, on Feb. 26 in Sanford, Florida, a firestorm of misleading and onerous accounts of the incident in the media created outrage, protest and cries of racism in the black community when Zimmerman was not charged with a crime due to lack of evidence.


So, the top lawyer in the country is charging an entire police department with misconduct and denying George Zimmerman due process of law, because the alleged perpetrator is white and the victim black. Feeding fuel into the fire rather than offering a peaceful solution shows a department in hot pursuit of a divisive race war, rather than justice for all regardless of race: White, Black, Red, Yellow, or a combination of any of the four.
