Is It a Black Thing?

Attorney General Eric Holder lashed out against the “unprecedented, unwarranted, ugly and divisive” treatment he and the Obama administration have received during remarks delivered at the National Action Network's annual confernce. “What attorney general has ever had to deal with that kind of treatment?
