Eric Holder Says Both He and Obama Are Victims of “Racial Animus”

Attorney General Eric Holder said on Sunday that both he and President Obama have been Holdervictims of “racial animus” where political adversaries are concerned.

“There’s a certain level of vehemence, it seems to me, that’s directed at me [and] directed at the president,” Holder said, according to The Hill. “You know, people talking about taking their country back. … There’s a certain racial component to this for some people. I don’t think this is the thing that is a main driver, but for some there’s a racial animus.”

Still, Holder was quick to acknowledge the progress that’s been made for blacks over the last 50 years.

“We’ve made lots of progress,” he observed. “I sit here as the first African-American attorney general, serving the first African-American president of the United States. And that has to show that we have made a great deal of progress….But there’s still more we have to travel along this road so we get to the place that is consistent with our founding ideals,” he added.

Holder also says he still believes the U.S. is a nation of cowards when it comes to race and stands by his initial comments.

“I wouldn’t walk away from that speech,” Holder said. “I think we are still a nation that is too afraid to confront racial issues.”

Then Holder expressed how the GOP is attempting to mute the voices of minorities and young people by restricting access to the ballot.

“Who is disproportionately impacted by them? Young people, African Americans, Hispanics, older people, people who, for whatever reason, aren’t necessarily supportive of the Republican Party,” Holder said, adding: “this notion that there is widespread in-person voter fraud is simply belied by the facts.”
