I don't even know how to take this story, but it's worth discussing. A right-wing blogger and a Department of Justice Attorney named J. Christian Adams, resigned after he won a default judgment against Philadelphia Black Panthers for intimidating white voters on election day and being directed to dismiss the case against them. He is claiming that the dismissal of this sort of case against the Black Panthers is part of a pattern of racism. It may just be a political thing. I heard about the story on Rush Limbaugh's radio show and he was ranting and raving about a black President and black Attorney General makes for an anti-white government. Helter Skelter, anyone? Race war incitement? Rush was also upset because this type of story was only being covered by Fox "News" and right wing pundits and no one else seems to care.
I care, but I don't really know how I feel about this story. I hope that it's not true. I hope that it's just a way for Republicans to drive a wedge between Republicans and Democrats.
I'm frankly sick of both parties. But this story is of lawyers behaving badly, whether it's Mr. Adams or Attorney General Holder or President Obama.
