This review is from: Injustice: Exposing the Racial Agenda of the Obama Justice Department (Hardcover)
J. Christian Adams has written an important book detailing the damage done when people entrusted to administer justice place personal ideology above the law. He also places his finger right on the heart of the matter--the larger clash between those who believe that living in a constitutional republic means that everyone stands in the same position before the law and those who believe people (other people) are so fatally flawed that the law should be used to achieve particular ends, even if that means treating some people favorably and others unfavorably--picking winners and losers.
In detailing the agenda and methods of the Civil Rights Division at the Department of Justice, Adams vividly brings to light the Division's antipathy to the neutral application of our civil rights laws. As Justice Harlan said in his searing dissent from Plessy v. Ferguson, "[O]ur constitution is color-blind, and neither knows nor tolerates classes among citizens. In respect of civil rights, all citizens are equal before the law." While the Constitution may be color-blind, Adams makes clear that the Holder Justice Department is not.
