Under Obama's appointed Attorney General Eric Holder, white people are not protected by hate crime laws.
In hearings before the Senate Judiciary Committee, Attorney General Eric Holder settled Hackel's question of whether hate crime laws protect whites: they don't.
Holder repeatedly claimed that hate crime laws are designed to protect only groups that were targeted for violence on a "historic basis," such as African-Americans, Hispanics, Jews, and gays.
Holder's repeated charge that blacks were "historically" targeted for violence betrays the fact that in modern times they rarely are. In fact, according to the Justice Department's own statistics, in only 10% of the 650,000 violent interracial crimes that occur each year in this country are white offenders attacking black victims.
