Why did Attorney General Eric Holder say goodbye to the Obama Administration at such a crucial time for the Department of Justice? The reality is – he got tired. Tired of explaining himself. Tired of explaining racial profiling or why voting is a fundamental right.
Tired of explaining why young Black men are being locked up at disproportionate numbers or why young Black men are being murdered by the police with no recourse. Tired of hearing the white establishment or the GOP, whatever you want to call them, try to convince us that’s it’s a matter of the police just doing their jobs.
Holder shouldn’t have to go on national television and explain his love for his son. He shouldn’t have to explain why every time he walks out the door, he has no idea if his son will return. Most members of Congress will never know that feeling. After almost six years, Holder got tired of dealing with the white man’s BS.
He was the first sitting member of a President’s cabinet in U.S. history to be held in contempt of Congress – over allegations related to the Fast and Furious investigation.
Holder got tired of a GOP that couldn’t see or wouldn’t see the strength of our ancestors; the foundation of American that made this country great. This country’s ancestors made their way with hard work, blood, sweat and tears. Many of them helped fight for the necessary changes that would help this country evolve, the very evolution some people in this country want to stop.
