Mr Holder is the first black US attorney general and has had the fourth longest tenure in the post in history resinged today September 25th, 2014. Listen to The Gist of Freedom with Roy Paul www.BlackHistoryUnversity.com
Now that Holder feels he has accomplished more in recent months in the areas of prison and sentencing reform and helped restart a national conversation about racial justice in light of the shooting of an unarmed black teenager in Ferguson, Mo., the people said, he feels more comfortable with leaving government.
In August 2014, Holder became controversial again when he ordered the Department of Justice to investigate events surrounding the death of unarmed black teenager Michael Brown at the hands of Ferguson, Missouri police officer, Darren Wilson. He ordered the DOJ to investigate possible civil rights violations related to the shooting and excessive force Ferguson police used against Brown supporters following the incident.
Eric H. Holder, Jr., U.S. Attorney General since 2009, was born on January 21, 1951 in the Bronx, New York to parents of Barbadian descent, Eric, a real estate agent and Miriam Holder, a telephone operator. Holder was raised in East Elmhurst, Queens, a community which included a number of famous African Americans such as Louis Armstrong, Ella Fitzgerald, Dizzy Gillespie, Harry Belafonte, and Sidney Poitier. Civil rights activist Malcolm X lived two blocks from young Holder and on one occasion in 1964, then recently crowned heavy weight champion Muhammad Ali entertained him and other community children on the steps of the Malcolm’s house.
Holder entered Columbia University where he participated in sit-ins by African American students. In 1973, he earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in U.S. history from Columbia and then entered Columbia University Law School, earning a J.D. in 1976.

St. Laurence - St. Lawrence (also rendered St. Laurence) was one of the seven deacons of the Church of Rome and was martyred under the Emperor Valerian on the 10th of August 258, four days after Pope Sixtus II and his companions. Little is known of the life of Saint Lawrence. What is clear is that he was immensely popular with the Christians of Rome. A basilica was built over St. Lawrence’s tomb in the field of Varano near the Via Tiburtina fifty years after his death, by the Emperor Constantine, and the anniversary of his martyrdom was kept in Rome as a solemn feast. In fact, by the sixth century, the Feast of Saint Lawrence was one of the most important feasts throughout much of western Christendom. His name occurs (with Sixtus’s) in the Roman Canon of the Mass (Eucharistic Prayer #1). This excerpt from a sermon delivered by St. Augustine in about 400 AD on the occasion of the Feast of St. Lawrence (Sermo 304, 1-4, PL 38, 1395-1397) is used in the Roman Office of readings on August 10 with the accompanying biblical reading taken from Acts 6:1-6 and 8:1-8, on the selection ministry of Stephen, Philip and the first deacons of the Jerusalem Church.

In 1816 William Brown a retired African American ship steward bought a house in Manhattan on Thompson Street. He used his garden in his backyard to host social events. They were such a big hit that people traveled from all over NY to attend. An all-black theatre troupe and company grew out these tea garden performances.
Riding the success of the theater, Brown later built a fully-fledged performance space on the second floor of his home

Eric Holder has been described as one of the most divisive Attorneys General in history. From dropping the Black Panthers voter intimidation case, to recent comments about the Ferguson police department, Holder has held on to his belief that we are "a nation of cowards." This week Rev. C.L. Bryant joins me live to give us his impression of Eric Holder, and where we go next on race relations in America. National Right to Work attorney Bill Messenger will also be here to discuss the recent ruling in favor of the SEIU in Michigan. Of course we'll have all the latest political news as well. Tune in Saturday at Noon ET, or listen to the archive at your convenience.
The Don Smith Show "where it’s ok to be a conservative," brings you the most in-depth coverage of all the latest political news. While the liberal media currently dominates the airwaves, now there is an alternative. Listen to The Don Smith Show every Saturday at Noon ET to hear great interviews with people like Ted Nugent, Col. Allen West, Charlie Daniels, Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker, Pat Boone, Chuck Woolery, Ben Shapiro, Jon Voight, Deneen Borelli, NRA President Jim Porter, Victoria Jackson, and many more leading conservatives.
Don Smith is a business executive, and fiscal conservative. As seen on Fox News, CBS, PBS, Next Generation TV, and heard on various syndicated radio broadcasts around the country, "The Don Smith Show" takes the complex issues facing this nation and breaks them down in an easy to understand format. Tune in every Saturday at Noon ET for all the latest political news.
Eric Holder is leaving the Justice Department, and the media is trying to whitwash his record. While the cover story is that Holder was a champion for civil rights and "social justice," the truth is very different. Holder has served as Barack Obama's fireman, putting out of the flames of all the president's scandals and serving as just another partisan hack instead of America's top law enforcement officer. Meanwhile. he joined forces with some of the nation's worst race-baiters including Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson to set race relations back decades. Also...I take a call that turns into a very honest discussion on the hypocrisy of the left on race issues and how liberal policies have been devastating to the black community in America.
This Saturday on Critical Discourse, we intend to cover the following, and not in any particular order:
Obama’s comments before the U.N. General Assembly
The resignation of Attorney-General Eric Holder
The Apology of Ferguson’s Police Chief to the Brown Family
The dire situation of Muslimah’s in Homeless Shelters (hopefully, to continue in full, next week)
Unlimited Vacation Time for Employees?
Attorney General Eric Holder resigned - lots of speculations, and the COOL CRITICS want to chime in their opinion. It was the talk of the week, everyone had a chance to weigh in.......What say you?
And FEMINISTS. (Women) - Are all women feminists? Is this a good thing or a bad thing? Here's what I don't get. There are only two kinds on this planet. MEN, and WOMEN. It is 2014, haven't we got use to each other yet? Don't women deserve the same kind of rights and attention that men do? We'll see what the COOL ONES have to say about this.

Fox News Host: Eric Holder Ran DOJ 'Like The Black Panthers Would'
According to John Amato host Andrea Tantaros went slightly crazy and racist by describing in detail her hatred for Attorney General Eric Holder, after it was announced that he was resigning. What exactly did Tantaros mean when she said " Eric Holder Ran the DOJ like a Black Panther would?"
What is the fear of the Panther Party? What is the role of the Black advocate in Government?
Why did Eric Holder resign at this time? What does it mean for him to be the longest standing Attorney General in history? Was Eric Holder ever a member of the Black Panther Party?
What does Tantaros mean " He let the Black Panthers off the hook when they were voter-intimidating people!”"
What are the facts of Eric Holders Militant past??
Tonight we're talking about the news of Attorney General Eric Holder's pending resignation. We are also going to rehash all the shenanigans the Department of Injustice has been involved in, and not involved in. The title of this show was going to be, "What a F*#king Mess!" or "Cleanup on Isle One!" or...you pick a title.
Tune-in, listen and learn, or be a putz...
