The Exposure of a National Scandal
, September 24, 2011
This review is from: Injustice: Exposing the Racial Agenda of the Obama Justice Department (Hardcover)
In this powerful book, Injustice, Christian Adams presents a scathing indictment of the racial grievance industry which is in the process of tearing asunder the great values of equality and fairness at the core of American society. It should be read and acted upon by all those who care about preserving our wonderful nation. University professors with some guts should make it required reading in all classes dealing with these issues, whether in social science departments or law schools.
There is a great danger that the book will be dismissed by the mainstream media as a right wing racist attempt to destroy the administration of the first black president along with the first black attorney general. It will also be dismissed on the basis of a suspension of belief: this cannot have happened.
However, speaking as a liberal Democrat during most of my life, who voted for candidate Obama in 2008, and a former civil rights protester and a former federal civil rights official, I can testify that the indictment appears to be based upon solid fact. Attorney General Eric Holder allowed his Civil Rights Division to ignore blatant violations of civil rights in some cases when the victims were white and the defendants were black, such as in the infamous New Black Panther case. It also appears that these illegal actions were taken primarily because the Justice Department officials, both black and white, wanted to show favoritism to the black miscreants.
I happened to show up at the hearing before the Civil Rights Commission on July 6, 2010 when Mr. Adams testified for the first time in public about his involvement in the New Black Panther case. He explained that he had been an experienced Voting Section litigator and assumed that the actions of the Black Panthers in threatening potential voters outside a Philadelphia polling station in 2008 constituted a clear case of violation of the voting rights laws. Mr. Adams was appalled over the fact that even though a default judgment had been secured, justice department leaders let the thugs off with a slap on the wrists. Mr. Adams swore that this was only one example of racial bias in the enforcement of the civil rights laws by officials in the inner sanctum of the justice department who are sworn to enforce the law in a race neutral fashion.
Such appalling behavior led Mr. Adams to resign his governmental position and to write this book. That behavior was one of many causes that led me to move to the conservative side of the political spectrum. It should lead all decent people to support rational changes in the way we approach race in this society.
