Obama's comments on the arrest of Harvard professor Henry Louis Gates Jr.
President Obama on the Cambridge Police Department for saying they acted stupidly in last week's arrest of Harvard professor Henry Louis Gates Jr.
My gut feeling is that this guy Gates was a little oversensitive to the cops showing up at the house as he was acting peculiar trying to "break in" and got all loud and belligerent at which point he was probably told to cool it or go to jail and he didn't heed the warning.
So Obama - if that guy was WHITE, would you have made that comment on the prime time tv that you have carte blanche access to?
I demand that you apologize to that officer in Cambridge for doing his job and outclassing both you and your friend Gates by a mile.

RE: Obama's comments on the arrest of Harvard professor Henry Louis Gates Jr.
Racial profiling...and, the point? Is it wise to ignore the fact that in the U.S. blacks are 37 times more likely to commit a violent crime than whites, while blacks are 17 times more likely to commit violent crime against a white person than the other way around.
Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton, because you refuse to acknowledge these facts does not make them less true or change them. Don't want blacks profiled in this way any more? Then maybe you should work on lowering the crime rates of your constituencies. Is it wrong to racially profile middle-easterners in airports, or should we continue to ignore the facts and make a mockery out of airport security by haranguing every citizen that boards a plane in the U.S.?
Have we become a nation of idiots that live in the lala land that Jackson and Sharpton want us to?
