  • Floods and Fires and Drought

    The story is about a bigot hiring(nominating) a racist AG, not about Eric Holder, former AG. Therefore it is entirely reasonable that we didn‘t hear about these vague allegations against AG Holder.

  • Susan

    We didn‘t hear from Ms. Ifill about the collusion, corruption and pay to play in the DOJ under Eric Holder. Millions lost their homes, Ms Ifill, millions. A very high percentage are minorities and seniors. I did not hear your voice against him. He is now back with the bank law firm he came from. 10 MILLION foreclosures. He belongs under the jail.

  • George Olds

    I never knew there even WAS such a position as ‘Racist-in-Chief‘ in US administrations. This does not bode well.

  • Bigot selects bigot

    Film at 11.

  • CivilRights?

    So you are not going to mention his failure in the 1980s to be confirmed for the federal bench due to his racism and use of his office to Jim Crow alive?
