Attorney General Eric Holder is still under fire for his comments on race. He spoke again on Tuesday about discrimination, saying "As it stands, our society is not yet colorblind; nor should it be, given the disparities that still afflict and divide us."
But it's his comments about racial animus being directed at him and President Obama that is stoking criticism from the right.
"This really is reprehensible conduct," said Former Deputy White House Chief of Staff Karl Rove on Fox News. "He's the attorney general. To suggest that if people criticize President Obama, he's planting the seed that the reason you're criticizing president Obama is not a legitimate disagreement over issues or conduct, it's because you're a racist."

Eric Holder is race-baiting and he shows no shame in bringing out his race card when he is cornered.
Eric is where he is only because of his skin color and is absolutely devoid of any character whatsoever.
Anyone who achieves a level of notoriety or stature that would garner the attention of the President or AG Holder is not racist. So, there is no element of racism in the criticism of experts and commentators. No one working in mainstream media is racist.
Psychologists could allege projection here by the President and AG Holder. That is, they see racists because they are racist. One only need look at how many top Presidential advisors are black... a far, far greater percentage than blacks represent in the country.
