Attorney General Eric Holder has announced that the Justice Department will investigate the shooting of a black career criminal in Oakland, after the white police officer who committed the shooting was convicted of involuntary manslaughter; Holder has said nothing about the massive looting, largely by minorities, that followed the verdict.

Meanwhile, the Obama administration continues to ramp up the anti-white rhetoric. This is nothing new. Holder famously called us a "nation of cowards" on racial matters last year; Obama himself called his white grandmother a "typical white person" and blasted the Cambridge Police Department for racial profiling; Michelle Obama wrote her Princeton thesis on how white folks were racists; Michelle and Barack went to Rev. Wright's racist church for 20 years. They've all just upped the ante recently. Now Holder says that the Arizona law will promote racial profiling; Obama agrees with him; and Michelle Obama visits the NAACP, where she tells the black audience to "increase our intensity."

What's their motivation? Supposedly, the Obama administration is simply fired up by the presence of the tea partiers, in the same way the KKK was fired up by the presence of voting blacks in the South. Black Democrats in the House have fabricated claims of tea partiers shouting the "n-word," even as they ignore white union members shouting the "n-word" at black tea partier Kenneth Gladney. The NAACP claims that the tea party is "racist," with NAACP President Benjamin Jealous telling members that his goal was to pour "ice on the tea party."

That's just an excuse. The Obama administration is racist. They are using that racism to let black criminals off the hook, justify illegal immigration, hamstring law enforcement across the country, and push redistribution as a solution to supposed continuing discrimination against "people of color." The predictable result of this policy will resemble the results of the 1876 election: federal abdication on racial violence, state abdication on racial violence and local abdication on racial violence. The next race war will come not from racist whites, but from racist blacks and Hispanics who feel empowered to act on their racism by an administration that excuses all minority misbehavior.
