FOX news: Do you believe that the DOJ has a policy now of not pursuing cases if the defendant is black and the victim is white?
DOJ lawyer, ADAM: Well, particularly in voting. In voting that will be the case over the next few years, there’s no doubt about it.
Holder was the guest of honor at the Muslim Advocates. Islam is not a race, mind you, but they have stolen the victimhood narrative right out from under the NAACP.
Muslim Advocates want Holder to stop profiling. What profiling?
Biased policing concerns emerged long before the 9/11 attacks, primarily in the context of local police targeting African American and Latino drivers whose only offense was "driving while black or brown." Since 9/11, racial & religious profiling has come to especially victimize the Muslim, Arab, Middle Eastern and South Asian communities, all of which have endured disproportionate scrutiny from law enforcement.
Muslim Advocates' Campaign to End Racial & Religious Profiling (RRP) is modeled on the efforts of other Americans who have successfully sought to defend their rights. The Campaign's main components include impact litigation, policy advocacy, and community education.
Holder spoke at the dinner and reassured Muslims of "DOJ's anti-bias focus."
This is the same Holder who did nothing about Black Panthers harassing, intimidating and suppressing the vote in 2008.
This is the same Holder who did nothing to prosecute the egregious voter fraud committed by ACORN.
This is the same Holder who sabotaged/disenfranchised the Military vote.

MILLBRAE, Calif. — Attorney General Eric Holder reiterated his resolve to prosecute hate crimes while standing behind the methods used in anti-terrorism cases during a speech Friday night before a Muslim advocacy group near San Francisco.
Speaking to Muslim Advocates, a San Francisco-based group, Holder told the group that he's heard from many Muslim and Arab Americans who feel uneasy and singled out by law enforcement.
The organization is one of several groups voicing concerns over hate crimes, alleged rights violations at the hands of law enforcement and the tactics used in anti-terrorism cases.
Carefully-crafted sting operations by FBI and Justice Department officials have included plots against a Portland, Ore., Christmas celebration, Dallas skyscrapers, Washington subways, a Chicago nightclub and New York's John F. Kennedy International Airport.
These jihadis wanted to slaughter Americans. The FBI got there in time. How is that a "sting"op?
Undercover operatives in these cases have let suspects make clear they wanted to carry out an attack and gave them a chance to change their mind, according to authorities.
But Holder told the group he would make "no apologies" for the handling of the case against Mohamed Osman Mohamud, 19, a Somali-born Muslim accused of plotting to set off a bomb in Oregon.
"Those who characterize the FBI's activities in this case as "entrapment" simply do not have their facts straight or do not have a full understanding of the law."
In that case, Mohamud has pleaded not guilty to charges of attempted murder of federal officers and attempted use of a weapon of mass destruction. After his arrest, someone set fire to an Islamic center where he occasionally worshipped.
Critics have called the stings entrapment of people who otherwise couldn't have carried out an attack and said the government has been enticing Muslims into terrorism.
"We have very serious concerns about FBI surveillance tactics that are used. We believe that law enforcement has an important job to protect us as a country but they should do so mindful of the rules of justice and fairness that are at the core of our criminal justice system," said Muslim Advocates executive director Farhana Khera, who invited Holder to speak to the group.
Despite the differences of opinion, Holder received strong applause and a standing ovation. Attendees said they felt reassured by his remarks on protecting the civil liberties of Muslim Americans.
