And with regard to the Inky, kudos to Kevin Ferris for his column today regarding the Obama administration strange dismissal of civil rights complaints against members of the New Black Panther Party for actions taken last Election Day at a polling place at 1221 Fairmount St., Philadelphia.
Samir Shabazz, and Jerry Jackson dressed in paramilitary style uniforms and made racially disparaging comments and threats at voters while brandishing night sticks.
Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. dismissed the complaints filed by the victims last May and won’t say why. Ferris is asking as should all who love democracy.
