Henry Louis Gates Jr. Has Some Real Issues

July 30th, 2009 by Rich Szabo

Harvard professor Henry Louis Gates Jr., one of the nation’s pre-eminent African-American scholars, was arrested Thursday afternoon at his home by Cambridge police investigating a possible break-in. The incident raised concerns among some Harvard faculty that Gates was a victim of racial profiling.

He was booked for disorderly conduct after “exhibiting loud and tumultuous behavior,” according to a police report. Gates accused the investigating officer of being a racist and told him he had “no idea who he was messing with,” the report said.

Obama got into the middle of this before he even knew the details. But then again, do you really expect Barry to READ a police report when he hasn’t even read the Healthcare Bill?

The only people who were being racist were Henry Louis Gates Jr. and Barry Obama.
