J. Christian Adams, the former voting-section attorney who accused the Obama Justice Department of being racist against whites for its handling of the New Black Panther voter intimidation case, gives his opinion on the Pigford settlement:
This week, the House passed a $4.6 billion payout to American Indians and black farmers as part of a settlement of alleged race discrimination claims. BigGovernment.com has reported extensively, on the “Pigford II” settlement and how it promotes fraud. Worse than fraud, it represents a race-driven political payoff by the Obama Administration to a favored political constituency.
Sounds like the exact kind of person you'd want working in a section of the Justice Department that makes judgment calls about what amounts to a legally prohibited form of racial discrimination.
Matt Gertz has more, but the pervasiveness of conservative anger over the Pigford settlement augurs a new low for conservative anti-anti-racism, in which remedying an exhaustively documented instance of racial discrimination is objectionable not because the claim itself is illegitimate but because it represents a transfer of income from whites to nonwhites.
