Racism? Yes Eric Holder ONLY Attorney General EVER held in Contempt of CONGRESS

Visit for breaking news, world news, and news about the economy

On June 20, 2012, I watched twenty-three Republicans all who appeared to be white Americans on the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee vote to recommend that Attorney General Eric Holder, an African-American, be cited for contempt of Congress. Seventeen Democrats five who appeared to be African-Americans voted against the unprecedented measure. Many will argue that this is a legal and/or political matter and nothing more. I believe differently. It was a racist act. Representative Cummings was one of the five African-Americans on the committee. Watching his face as he voted and watched others vote broke my heart. It broke my heart because of the emotional, spiritual, and financial pain that racism caused me as a child and an adult.
