AEA,

Sorry if you took offense to my post... that wasn't the intention.

When I read your post I interpreted what you said as simply "Eric Holder will give any black person a pass," which I doubt is the case. My point was why bring the fact that Holder and Jackson are of the same race? In my opinion it's not because of that but because of simple politics (they're on the same side, and come from the same branch).

Did you play the race card? Hmmm... maybe not, but sounds like this was headed that way. Are you allowed to play the race card? Yes. Should you? I don't know.

Happy Thanksgiving.

It's too bad that Barack Obama won the presidential election. If he hadn't, he could have taken Jessie Jackson's seat and gotten some experience. :lol:

Alex, thanks for the reply. I somewhat understand your statement now and do not take it personal.

Happy Thanksgiving to you and your Family as well!
