Justice Department Showing Racial Bias?

Ad Feedback

A scene from the 2008 presidential election has some accusing the Justice Department of racism.

The accusation stems from an Election Day event in Philadelphia, where several members of the New Black Panther Party stood in front of a polling place dressed in black military-style uniforms.

The group allegedly shouted racial slurs and one of the demonstrators brandished a nightstick.

The Justice Department during the Bush administration prepared to prosecute the party for voter intimidation and violating the Voter Rights Act. Yet, Attorney General Eric Holder has dismissed the charges under the Obama administration.

Former Department of Justice attorney J. Christian Adams said the case against the New Black Panther Party was solid, but that racial motive in the Justice Department led to a dismissal.

Some conservatives agree. But are they right?

CBN News spoke with Bishop E.W. Jackson, founder of S.T.A.N.D. (Staying True to America's National Destiny), about the case and the accusations against the Holder and the Justice Department.
