Eric Holder, will the first African American United States Attorney General, according to Michael Isikoff of Newsweek. The Obama appointment, pending the standard vettting process,

Holder was Deputy attorney general from 1997 to 2001 and briefly, acting attorney general, from January 20, 2001 – February 2, 2001, Eric Holder was a close advisor to Barack Obama.

My God!! A Black AG. Just think about it. Every tin horn, racist, redneck, bully sheriff and cop will have to think twice before unfairly treating black people who in the past might have been their victims.

Imagine, there's a black man who's been picked up on suspicion, or who is being considered for being picked. Up. the sheriff says, "Let's get that N*word."

The deputy, remembering who the AG is, suggest, "Maybe we better take it a little easier sir."  We're talking about racial profiling, racist treatment of prisoners...  And this happens 100,000 times in the first year Holder's in office. By the second year, after a handful of stupid redneck sheriffs have been dealt with, it happens 200,000 times. By the third year, it drops to 50,000. There aren't many sheriffs who even consider racist abuse of blacks. Ain't it a pretty thought?

Imagine those Bush appointees in the department of justice who impeded any discrimination investigations and who blocked hiring of blacks. I wonder how they're feeling about now. Nervous, I hope.


Rob Kall has spent his adult life as an awakener and empowerer-- first in the field of biofeedback, inventing products, developing software and a music recording label, MuPsych, within the company he founded in 1978-- Futurehealth, and founding, organizing and running 3 conferences: Winter Brain, on Neurofeedback and consciousness, Optimal Functioning and Positive Psychology (a pioneer in the field of Positive Psychology, first presenting workshops on it in 1985) and Storycon Summit Meeting on the Art Science and Application of Story-- each the first of their kind.  Then, when he found the process of raising people's consciousness and empowering them to take more control of their lives  one person at a time was too slow, he founded which has been the top search result on Google for the terms liberal news and progressive opinion for several years. Rob began his Bottom-up Radio show, broadcast on WNJC 1360 AM to Metro Philly, also available on iTunes, covering the transition of our culture, business and world from predominantly Top-down (hierarchical, centralized, authoritarian, patriarchal, big)  to bottom-up (egalitarian, local, interdependent, grassroots, archetypal feminine and small.) Recent long-term projects include a book, Bottom-up-- The Connection Revolution, debillionairizing the planet and the Psychopathy Defense and Optimization Project.
