Well, it only took three years.
Today, the eric holder-led Department of Justice gave up.
It tried. God knows, it tried. But it could not make a viable case against George Zimmerman in the death of Trayvon Martin.
Any more than it could make a viable case against officer Darren Wilson in the death of Michael Brown.
Black lives matter. But sometimes Black lives are lost due to the actions of the Black people who lose those lives.
If eric holder really gives a damn about Black lives – if he really thinks that Black lives matter – maybe he can tell us what he has done over his years as Attorney General to stem the tidal wave of Black murders – an average of slightly over 17 per day based on the most recent statistics – most of which are young Black males killing other young Black males.
Do those lives matter?
Or do Black lives matter to the eric holders of the world only when they can be exploited for racial politics —which is a nice way of saying that if Black people are kept in a state of racial agitation they may come out in greater numbers to vote for Democrats?
