This is one my piece of evidence that Obama and some of his Cadre of Radicals, Socialists/Marxists, anti-Americans are racists as well.

This attitude that "voting rights laws are meant to protect minorities, not whites" is too much, and I believe both Eric Holder and Obama are responsible for it.

Besides it is in violation of the the Constitution not to give equal protection under the law to all Americans and to so based on Race is without any doubt Racist, it violates the oath of office of everyone who subscribes to this racist application of the law and anyone who obeys the unlawful orders to follow it.

I believe this to be a high crime.

"Qui Pro Domina Justitia Sequitur," on the Seal's exact meaning is very hard to track down and the best I could decipher was, "Who pursues for Lady Justice."

Justice at the Justice Department? | Foxnews.com

Congressman Frank Wolf (R-Va.) says it's time for answers, and he's tired of the Department of Justice "stonewalling" him. He's referring to allegations from current and former DOJ attorneys that leadership within the department has advised employees that voting rights laws are meant to protect minorities, not whites, and will be enforced accordingly.

Wolf says other DOJ employees, who wish to remain anonymous, have made similar allegations. "I made it very clear to Eric Holder he ought not to be pushing these people around, that they should be encouraged to go forward and testify openly," Wolf says.

The Virginia Republican says he, and other members, have repeatedly asked House Judiciary Committee Chairman John Conyers (D-Mich.) to launch a congressional probe. That has yet to happen, but if Republicans retake the House on November 2nd, there is a strong possibility that will change.

Just so everyone understands this isn't just the Obama Administration's position on the matter...

So, don't misinterpret what's going on here. Apparently, this has been a widely held few by (the) past Administration(s) as well.

Well have white people generally had an issue with their votes being supressed by people in power over the last 50 years or so?

Do caucasians in Orange County California generally need help in ensuring they have the ability to vote, or would poorer minorities in generally more racist communities where the power structure has in the past tried to prevent that minority from voting?

Of course it does not make it right, not to enfore voting rights for all Americans, what should be realized is that white people in the US do not have anywhere near the problem with having their vote suppressed as minorities. As such the limited resources of the government should not focus on that limited area.

Could not disagree more. I am not saying they should spend a majority of their time on something that may be a small fraction of what they have to take care of. I am saying when they are brought a criminal act I would hope they would do the right thing on fix it.

Actually, it does!

Fact of the matter is, there never would have been a reason to enact voting rights laws if the right to vote had never been surpressed. It's the same argument for enacting the Civil Rights Act (of which voting rights are a part of). If ALL Americans were treated fairly and equally, this would be a non-issue.

I agree. The question then is, "How do you fix it?"

I was immediately struck by the silliness in the opening post (. . . Cadre of Radicals, Socialists/Marxists, anti-Americans are racists as well.)

But thankfully Objective voice, Lord Tammerlain and washnut improved the quality of the discussion. Thanks.

Generally speaking very few whites have trouble voting. The question is how to best assure that all people have their rights.
