Eric Holder, Attorney General for black America, has been joking about the promise of a “‘fair and thorough’ investigation into the fatal shooting of Michael Brown.”

As he deployed “Approximately 40 FBI agents and some of the Civil Rights Division’s most experienced prosecutors to lead this process,” he continued to tout “the independence and thoroughness of our investigation,” at least four times in one “op-ed for the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

Amid howlers like the unimpeachable independence of his Department Of Justice, Holder’s impetus is to racialize the incident: “We’re looking for possible violations of federal civil rights statutes.”

In case you doubt what he’s up to, Holder said this to his constituents at a community meeting in Ferguson: “I am the Attorney General of the United States, but I am also a black man.”
