I would not spend 2 minute listening to Gates.

He does not seem very scholarly to me.

Is "Black" now his first name? I can't recall one story, from the Journalism class, that has stated a first name other than "Black."

People need to realize how scary this is:

That the black MAYOR, GOVERNOR, and PRESIDENT all prejudged this case as unfortunate profiling, and rushed to side with the black man.

“The black scholar” acted like a racist fool and got to meet the president of the United States.

CNN has a permanent aspect of their network called “Black in America”, where the hosts and blog posts are mired in outward racial hate, by blacks.

When flipping channels, I cannot stop on ONE black talking head who isn’t speaking of black-related issues, and perceived white racism.

Let me say this. I was always told how awful racism is, and I agree. I am starting to believe it is the number one plight of blacks: rabid ethnocentrism and hard-wired racial hatred. Black racism, and ALL FORMS of double-standards perpetuated by the left, has GOT to stop if you desire a rational world.

The president specifically said that he didn't know what role if any race played in the arrest. His comments about racial profiling were in response to the second part of the question he was asked about the wider picture of race in the country.

As for the role of race in the arrest. We now know that officer Crowley inserted race into his report...inconsistent with the information given him by the 911 caller on the scene. For what purpose?
