"Think about that, when you compare what people endured in the South in the 60s to try to get the right to vote for African Americans, and to compare what people were subjected to there to what happened in Philadelphia—which was inappropriate, certainly that…to describe it in those terms I think does a great disservice to people who put their lives on the line, who risked all, for my people,"
AG Holder in response to questions on the DoJs handling of the Black Panther voter intimidation case.
You see Eric, that is the very reason that you of all people should realize that when voter intimidation happens you should be first in line to prosecute. No one in the United States of America should be denied their right to vote nor should they feel that they are in physical danger in order to do so. By not putting the full weight of your office behind this you have used the same mentality that bigots did back in the day when "your people" were being denied and or intimidated.
