Jason Riley: Holder Needs to Tell Ferguson to ‘Pull Up Your Pants,’ ‘Stay Out of Trouble’

Jason Riley thinks the protestors in Ferguson, Mo., do not need to hear U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder‘s message that much criticism of Obama is race-based. Instead, the Wall Street Journal editor believes Holder should plea for behavioral changes from the black community.

After Fox’s Special Report panel revisited Holder’s various comments about race-based criticism of the current administration, Riley declared: “These looters and rioters do not need to hear from the attorney general that criticism of Obama is race-based.”

He added: “What they need to hear from this black man in this position — the nation’s leading law enforcement official — is that they need to stay out of trouble with the law.”

Riley concluded that the message the black community needs to hear from black leaders like Holder and Obama is that “they need to pull up their pants and finish school and take care of their kids.”
