It's nice to see that we have a president who calmly waits for all evidence before deciding an issue is primarily racist and that the police acted "stupidly". It would seem that blacks in Africa are supposed to take charge and clean up their act, to take responsibility for their own action, but not in our country. What responsibility does Gates have to behave differently? Any man who chased after a cop leaving and screaming at him would be subject to arrest. And should be arrested. Its so nice to have a color blind president who appears to drop the race card whenever he can. Like his mentor he does not appear to have as a goal for the races to work together equally but for blame to be assigned, not if earned, but if there are more than one race involved in an incident we must point out the history of inequality. Tired song, time to move on, sir.
