It is yet another first for African Americans as Attorney Eric Holder was confirmed today, February 2, 2009 as United States Attorney General and Secretary of Justice. His confirmation with 75-21 votes of the Senate, marks an important milestone as color of the skin seem to be taking a back-seat in today's America. Congratulations Eric Holder and Icheoku prays you will soon bring back justice to the Justice Ministry! Eric Holder was a former federal prosecutor, a judge and the deputy Attorney General in the Clinton administration's Justice Department. Until his current appointment, Eric was engaged in private practice in Washington DC and was part of the group that led the search for the then President-elect Barack Obama's vice presidential candidate.
