WASHINGTON – Last night on MSNBC, news anchor Reverend Al Sharpton grilled Attorney General Eric Holder on everything from Fast and Furious to racism. Following is a transcript of that interview:
AL SHARPTON: Welcome Mr. Secretary General of Defense. It’s a pleasure to sponsor you on my show.
ERIC HOLDER: Thank you. It’s a pleasure being here.
AL SHARPTON: I’m going to start off the show by saying two words and I want to get your response.
ERIC HOLDER: Sure.
AL SHARPTON: Racism.
ERIC HOLDER: (Looks confused)
AL SHARPTON: Now, what does your judicated mind think when you hear those words?
ERIC HOLDER: Uh, that we still have work to do fighting for civil rights?
AL SHARPTON: Don’t those words define the biased white interlopers who’ve chosen to scrapegoat you, a premature African American man of power?
ERIC HOLDER: Uh, yes, I am aware that my skin color may play a roll in the ceaseless attacks from the right side of the aisle.
AL SHARPTON: Not just that Secretary Holder, but isn’t it true that President Obama is provocated from the aisle by the same Jim Crow fronts that would be clarified as abomable in a more just world?
ERIC HOLDER: As you know Reverend Sharpton, I think the United States is a nation of cowards when it comes to race.
AL SHARPTON: Not only cowards Secretary General, but isn’t the nation also a composite heap of partisan divide that threatens the very fabric of African American detrimentation?
ERIC HOLDER: Well, uh, we do still have a lot of work to do.
AL SHARPTON: And that leads me to my next question, General. With the issues of the Fast and Frisky gun profanities, isn’t it in the best interest of the country that the president intercept on your behalf to restrain matters of secrets in the attorney client prophecy?
ERIC HOLDER: Uh, there is no question that certain information pertaining to Fast and Furious is privileged and should not be made public until after the election.
AL SHARPTON: And are not you, the first black African American man of color with a law decree, being hunted down like a rapid dog in the swamps of the Jim Crow south by blood thirsty white men, some of who may or may not be Jewish?
