I bet some of his best friends are black.


Okay white A-merry-ca, you can relax now. Black Barry is back to being race neutral Barry again. Move along folks, there is nothing left to see here. Just an "over reaction", another "teachable moment" here in A-merry-ca.

It must be nice; put the uppity Nigger in check, and get a call from the President. The book deal and FOX News gig can't be far behind.


'"I unfortunately gave an impression that I was maligning the Cambridge Police Department or Sgt. Crowley specifically,'.... 'I could have calibrated those words differently, and I told this to Sgt. Crowley.' Watch Obama describe talk »

He reiterated his assertion that he believes police overreacted, but said Gates 'probably overreacted as well.

'"My sense is you have got two good people in a circumstance in which neither of them were able to resolve the incident in the way that it should have been resolved,' he said."

"TWO good people"? Really? "Gates probably overreacted as well"? Really? Is that what happens when you are dragged off of your own porch in handcuffs (after a trip half way around the world) for demanding to know what police officers are doing in your house and having an attitude about it? Wow! O man, please tell me you are not throwing another one of your friends under the bus. (Although, this Negro, Gates, could probably use some tire marks over his mug. More on him in a minute)

Now I don't know what is in Officer Crowley's heart. He could be the secret Grand Wizard of the Boston chapter of the KKK, or he could be married to a black woman. Personally, I don't give a fuck. What I do know is that neither do the other people in A-merry-ca and his fellow officers who are jumping to his defense and declaring that he is not a racist. Fellow officers- including the black one who was hugging him like he was some long lost frat brother or some shit.- (If there is a bigger house Negro in A-merry-ca today than Leon Lashley I would like to meet him, or her ) who held a big ass press conference today to admonish the president of these divided states for even questioning the integrity of one of their finest.


"I was a little surprised and disappointed that the president, who didn't have all of the facts by his own admission, then weighed in on the events of that night and made a comment that really offended not just officers in the Cambridge Police Department but officers around the country,"

Of course the 24 hour cable news shows are all over this latest little racial dust up. They are having multiple orgasms over the fact that his O ness had to do a mea culpa to that white police officer who was "just doing his job". But as I said: I don't know what's in the guy's heart and in a lot of ways this is not even about him. This is about the woman who called the damn cops in the first place, after seeing an old ass black man and his driver fiddling with a door in the MIDDLE OF THE DAY! And yeah I heard some of you saying that she was being a good neighbor and that is what you would want your neighbors to do blah blah blah. Well that's all bullshit! Because I guarantee you that if Gates and his driver was white, this incident would not have happened. It's that damn simple! No 911 call. No cops. No ugly incident in the house. Why? Because nosey white neighbor, "Mrs. Kravitz", doesn't call the cops. She would just have assumed that the white man trying to push the front door open belonged there. End of story.


Now that fact that I am just 44% Negro, Skippy Gates, wanted to send her flowers and didn't hold her accountable, says as much about his self delusional ass as it does about anything else. I guess having over 50% white genes didn't prevent his black ass from getting hauled off to jail. Let's just call it the education of Dr. Henry Gates.


Still, maybe some good will come out of this, and he will devote some of his obvious intellect and talents to chasing the big R. I am tired folks. You can stop sending me the e-mails with the stories now. (That one was today from DH) From now on you can send them to Dr. Gates. I am sure he will pay attention this time.

It's always possible that Obama backed off because he realized that the word, "stupid" was the wrong one, given that he'd remarked that he was biased in favor of Gates and that he didn't have all the facts.

I, for one, am heartened to see a quality in Obama that is all too rare in human beings, let alone politicians: the ability recognize a mistake, admit it, and move on. We could use a lot more of that in A-merry-ca.

Who knows, maybe in the next few days the arresting officer and Gates might just step up to the plate too. Not that I expect it, but wouldn't it be amazing to see two adults act like adults and eat some crow?

Nah, forget it. Can't happen.

Field, Obama has learned now it's okay to tell Black people about themselves but leave White people alone...lol
Anyway, this was such a non damn issue to began with Mr. Gates with all his money and connections was taking care of the matter and didn't need Obama stepping into the middle of it. What Obama should have done is spoke up for poorer minorities that suffer in then country everyday that lack the connections rich ass Mr. Gates had.
I hope now the media can move on to a new outrage about Obama. Because this one with Mr. Gates was getting old for me.

Because the person Republicans are pushing is racist as Sarah Palin, Rush, Hannity, Glenn etc... The list goes on for Republicans. I'm and independent and voted for Obama for one porpose only to keep that bitch Sarah Palin out of office. And don't regret doing it...smile
Also, until Republicans give me a reason to vote for them I will until then they kiss my Black ass.

Meezie said...

You people wear me out. This is all about the 24 hour news media and apparent lack of reporters' obligation to report actual, substantive news. President Obama wanted this ish to shut the EFF UP. He has health care to handle. This was ALWAYS about the press more than the President.

I'm pissed so many Black commentators seem only able to focus on one thing at a time. I understand how horrible racist cops are to deal with; they are the WORST. But, I think a FEW more Blacks will be far better served with the passage of universal health care coverage and a public option than they would've been had the President stood firm on his word (choice). FOCUS, dammit! Police brutality and racial profiling are serious issues; this was NOT that opportunity -- as you've now learned -- for all racist cops to be fired, the President to go all John Shaft, or the heavens open up and rain fire down on bad cops. SORRY.

I think some Blacks wanted Obama to go Black panther for 44% African Mr. Gates. People Mr. Gates was not worth Obama pushing back issues on "Health Care, two wars and failing economy." Mr. Gates has the money and connections to fight this issue alone with out Obama.
I'm glad Obama stepped up and said enough over the media dragging this shit out on TV.

Field, I fuckin love you man. No seriously, I loved the tone of this. And, I especially love the REVOKED Field Negro of the day award. In Leon Lashley's defense, Gates did say that it was the brother who showed him compassion and convinced them to handcuff him in-front instead of behind as they did originally. Not exactly Field Negro behavior yes, but hey...

*standing ovation*

Obama never called the officer stupid. He said that the Cambridge police handled the matter stupidly. There is a world's worth of difference between those two statements.

He most likely will be prompted after this incident is settled. People seem to forget Black cops are just as dangerous as White ones.

Yeah, keep on bashing all police. I'll keep that in mind the next time Field highlights some outrageous mayhem on the streets of "Killadelphia."

If you're going to have police, you'd better get used to the idea that the police are going to screw up. If you're not going to have police, then if you think "Killadelphia" is bad now, just wait.

Paint with a narrower brush.

grinder said...

By the way, if anyone's got reason to have a chip on their shoulder about black cops, I do. I damn near got fired from a job when I was in college because some asshole of a black cop gave me a jaywalking ticket on a deserted street, took 20 minutes to write it, and made me late for a factory job.

But you know what? He was just an asshole cop. Whether he was an asshole because I was white, or because he was just an asshole, I'll never know. I've dealt with plenty of other cops, both black and white, who were anything but assholes.

Having a Black cop stand next to him means nothing to me. He is still a cop. I have represented cops and can assure you that the Black cops can be worse than the White ones when it comes to mistreating Black men. Plus, he owes his job security to his White superiors, so his word means absolutely nothing. I'm glad Obama is shutting this nonsense down, but he is correct in standing by his original assessment that the arrest was inapropriate.

grinder said...

Let's see. If the black cop filed a report saying that the white homeowner had refused to provide proper identification, was yelling at him and accusing him of being a racist, and followed him onto the porch while yelling, I suspect that there'd be a bunch of people on this blog bitching about the white racist homeowner.

Plus, he owes his job security to his White superiors, so his word means absolutely nothing.

Hmm. I wonder what you'd be saying about the value of that black cop's word if he was out there giving interviews that took Gates's side of the story.

You know. I bet James Crowley are one of those white males who are quick to argue about how they don't have white privileges in America.

That was some serious 'white privilege' right there.

Field, just consider your self privileged to not have Obama as a personal friend, he seems to like throwing his black friends under busses. You got insurance?

Anonymous said...

I've been lurking on here for a while and I just had to get some input into what is perplexing me. The President's carelessness in his answer about the Prof Gates incident is uncharacteristic of his style. He even said, "I don't know all the facts...but...the police acted stupidly." That is so unlike him. He usually chooses his words carefully. I even cringed when he used the word "stupidly" to describe the police in the incident, though it was accurate. As skillful a politician that he is, I think that he knew that the reporter was going to ask the question and he was ready to answer it. As a skillful politician, I wonder what effect he was aiming for. Any thoughts?

My thing is many cops speak highly about their intuition and having a gut feeling. It was obvious that Gates lived there, so apologize and keep it moving. He intentionally led Gates outside with Gates in an agitated state to have the neighborhood see that the brother was showing out.

mellaneous said...

Field I think you nailed it these folks (Gates nor Obama) are really interested in putting their butts on the line to really address the issue of racial profiling. Either its real or its not.

From my perspective it appears that ole Skip Gates was surprised that he of all Negroes would be questioned about anything, let alone whether he lives in his own home and rightfully he was upset. But everybody who has had to deal with real cops know that you don't ask them for ID while you are being harrassed and you don't accuse them of being racist when its just you and them in a room alone. Thats always a bad move but brother Gates thinks he is someone special( guess he knows better now).

Now the cop was wrong because he could have overlooked the whole thing, especially since he teaches about racial profiling and is a good liberal and friend of the Negro, he should know that a cop coming to a black mans door asking him if he really belongs there would likely piss most brothers and sisters would be pissed.

But Crowley arrested Gates because his job is to remind black, brown and poor working people of their place in this society. He had to show who is running things and it aint us.

And add Kelly King to the lawn she too came out in defense of her felllow cop, proving that most of these folks who look black give their allegiances to the uniform once they put it on and not to the community.

And to show how backwards these Negroes King and Lashley are they are sticking their necks out needlessly, you know there colleagues would be cowering away if the situation were reverse. But us Negroes are so loyal. And they are wrong Gates was clowning and a bit out of control verbally but he shouldnt have gone to jail.

next,

I had a conversation with a reporter who attended college in the Boston/Cambridge area, and she mentioned that the police cannot stand people from academica. So I have question how much of a role did classism play. One side of the fence you have the uppity black professor and the side the working class bloak. I think and this my opinion, but some people become cops to gain some status authority and automatic respect. I also think some of them were criminals who never got and became police officers.

It is a matter power and I like to call my penis is bigger than yours. Race did have some factor, but class reared its head as well. However, Crowley should have let the matter go, but no his ego got in the way. How of a police officer is he if he did not notice Skip's photographs in the house. That would have been a sign that he might live there. I would not mistake Crowley for Ms. Marple as he is not a very observant person.

Isn't it amazing how these Ph.D racial "experts" from the Ivy league elite are, in reality, so far removed from the very reality that they are supposed to understand. This lackey was supposed to STAND THE F*** UP FOR THE "LITTLE NIGGERS" UNDER THE RADAR, WHO HAVE THIS HAPPEN TO THEM DAILY.

His education is a wasted one. I'll bet he's never spent time talking to brothers on a street corner. That's why he wants to talk, while he should be itching to slap the living hell out of some ofay in a blue uniform.

So, I won't be listening to anything this weak kneed man has to say about anything. We can expect the Jesse Jacksons, Farrakhans, Cornel Wests, Tavis Smileys, etc., etc., etc. to have some sort of useless talk-a-thon in the near future. In the meantime, "nice cop" will receive accolades. And if the woman who made the call is some cute blonde, oh boy, talk about a book deal and spot on Fox News.

Finally, it's becoming a little hard for me to remain a fan of a certain important man in Government. These Ivy league folks DO think they have a special corner on all things intellectual. Despite the grade inflation, good connections, and high-society affirmative action that gets people into these schools (didn't George W. Bush go to Yale?), they only listen to one another behind closed doors.

So, there we have it. The "talented tenth" is showing just how talent deprived they really are. They are the ones that are handling things "stupidly" while settling this ordeal.

Ever hear of the phrase, "the lesser of two evils"?

At the end of the day, each party has its "racist wing." I suspect the Republicans have a slightly bigger wing.

I guess most blacks, including myself, vote Democrat, because a Democratic president signed the Civil Rights Act of 1965 and most Republicans voted against it. Democrats, excluding the Southern Democrats, tend to be more accepting of blacks, gays and other minorities than Republicans.

I have more conservative views than liberal views, but I can never bring myself to vote Republican. I'd rather pay more taxes than support a party that has a history supporting policies that are offensive to blacks, gays and other protected groups.

In closing, FUCK the Republicans.

Field my man…bad day to be a negro huh? Or should I say one of those sensitive field negros? RAOFLMFAO
I’m starting to like this Barry more and more! I mean DAMN I’ve blogged here before about how sensitive you guys(negros) can be at times jezzz sometimes you can be like a woman having her period…..LOL.
Anyway it was pleasant to see Barry basically telling the brother he should have shut the fuck up and done what the man told him.
As Barry would say “Look” this is what gets you negros in so much trouble, When the man is driving the short bus and tells you to sit down and shut the fuck up you got to do it or suffer the consequences. No like it one is telling you that you have to like it but you got to do it, just like everybody else!
You’re going to see more and more of this from Barry. He’s expecting all negros house or field to act like mature adults and stop all this fucking complaining about little things (he’s looking at me).

Scholars in academia do research, write scholarly reports, give lectures, and develop theories and concepts. Gates has been insulated from the actual world like 'most' scholars are. Generally, scholars don't go out in the streets to talk to folks. Others such as Grad-students do that. Still, scholars can be a good source of information because they usually are on the cutting edge of a lot of things.

Still, there is a BIG difference between a scholarly professor who does research, write books and lectures about the art of war and the warrior who has been on the battle field.

I think he took advantage of the moment highlight racial profiling by law enforcement on Blacks and Latinos. The incident between a black Harvard Professor and a Cambridge Policeman was the perfect vehicle for the President to use.

I also cringed when he used the word "stupidly" but later thought it was an ingenious way to 'rattle the cage' nationally about racial profiling. Otherwise, he could have easily stayed out of it. It worked.

Crecilla said...

Excellent commentary, Mr. Field Negro. Bill Maher just joked: what burglar attempts to break into a home with LUGGAGE?

Mr. Field Negro brought up a great point -- had Professor Gates been white, Mrs. Kravitz would have ASSUMED that he was having difficulty entering HIS residence. Black people in the U.S. are never given the benefit of the doubt in most situations.

It is disheartening, although not surprising, that the media is focusing on the perceived slight to the police officer, as oppose to Obama's more important statement:

“Separate and apart from this incident is that there’s along history in this country of African-American and Latinos being stopped by law enforcement disproportionately…That’s just a fact.”

She just two black men on the porch. I would have called campus police before anyone from the outside, but Gladys does not call the campus police.

It's like when Borat is singing at a country and western bar Throw the jew down the well and the patrons are clapping and singing the refrain along with him without realizing what he is singing. Apathy is so entrenched in human behavior, and lack of awareness that you do not recognize your neighbor and fellow faulty member.

Has anybody noticed where the haters of bm have gone? It's usually the same three to four bw who will not wear the t-shirt in support of bm. Why are they so silent?

Maybe it's because it's Friday and they went together to see a movie and then to IHOP for dinner.

Obama struck me yesterday as a Black man who has had his shared of snears from cops. Remember, this negro grew up in Hawaii -- population wise, its Iowa with Pineapples.

He's probably seen racism that we couldn't imagine. But, at the end of the day, he's a politician with a job to do. And unfortunately, until white folks openly confront their own racism, no Black man, even if he the leader the free world, can't talk openly about the issue with out the Limbaugh and his band of merry rednecks calling for a lynching.

Am I disappointed Obama backed down? Yes. That being said, the man who usually function from his intellect spoke from his heart. Unfortunately, he allowed the wingnuts to bait him into a sideshow and was forced to backpedal, just keep the focus on healthcare.

I'm disappointed, but I understand.

It's nice to see the President snap on Limbaugh or some other Republiklan. Some days he need to tell them to go to hell and not issue any retraction like Shrub did the NAACP.I seriously thin this shit was planned. Since last year at this time the right has been trying to start riots. Remember Limbaugh tried to start one in Denver during the Convention. He seemed almost giddy. Now in Obama's best friends state Gov.Duval Patrick they're trying to set up Dr. Gates. This makes black people really furious because Dr. Gates believes in America.His family is the elite. If you pissed him off something is wrong. This would be like Clarence Thomas stomping a mud hole in Limbaugh because he's racist.It's out of character for him.When Oprah was locked out of a Hermes' store in Paris , it was racism. Oprah never uses race unless it's racist.

I am not disappointed in the President at all. I felt that he said "stupidly" intentionally, knowing that it would create a firestorm and that as President he would have to soften it to be fair to everyone. Rush Limbaugh had nothing to do with his decision and never will. That's just never-satisfied-angry black folk talk who give Limbaugh more power than his loyal followers do, by talking about him all of the time.

I guess some Blacks are very afraid of ole pig face Rush and 'Imagine'in their fearful minds that he has the power to control and move the President about at will. Frank D. is right, we are funny.

Field, the President stepped up made it possible to put racial profiling on the table from the Oval Office. That will give Skip's documentary about it more power and interest. As President, he didn't have say a damn thing and could have left it as a local matter.

Field, please put up his picture again.

how is it that the architects of jim crow and racism are all of sudden allowed to claim victimization rights and benefits against people of colour and/or to cover their overt nazi fascist practices under some vain attempt of "just doing your job"? What exactly the policeperson job's anyway? Are they of a mind enough to recite their damn penal codes of municipality and give insight how that code aligns with the statutes of the USCA criminal sections blah blah blah...naw they aint. When has a cop every show up in the hood like some kinda flash gorden [i.e. in fuking nano new your seconds] such that by the time you are unloading your luggage post a 10 plus hour flight and putting the same into you house that they could be standing you in alcove whilst you are in the other room, entry with no warrant and unannouced. When they drove up didnt they see parties taking such in and not out! Its all bullshit... and O man should have let his first comment stand and refused to talk with either party but let they attorneys work it out.. He aint Moses, nor as a child with one foot in white and the other in Kenya, is he really quantify to dissect police profiling against brown and black folks of colour precisely as it is needed.

As for that display of all the officers dressed alike like some kind of Hilter fascist brown shirts youth, we the people must come to the realisation that a so-called officer skin colour does not exempt them from being indoctrined to perceive their own heritage folks as the other and enemy to be stopped at all costs to maintaining the white man's ideals of law and order. whose law and whose order again?

Oh, you haven't seen the guy getting choked, while his heart patient is suffering in the back of an ambulance? And, the cop just received a five day suspension as "punishment" for pulling over an ambulance speeding to the hospital.

Yeah, keep on bashing all police. I'll keep that in mind the next time Field highlights some outrageous mayhem on the streets of "Killadelphia."

If you're going to have police, you'd better get used to the idea that the police are going to screw up. If you're not going to have police, then if you think "Killadelphia" is bad now, just wait.

Paint with a narrower brush."

The problem people have with the police is the same as folks back in the Middle Ages had with knights -- those given great power and responsibilities are liable to get "the big head". Cops get their ego levels boosted over 9000 (dbz joke) and expect people to defer to them the same way a peon would defer to a knight. If it's a white cop/black man interaction, it's worse. Much worse.

Meanwhile, Sarah Palin, the GOP and the legions of RUSHBOTS and other assorted assholes and idiots would like to bring America back to 1955 or there abouts, presumably a time when it was ey-okay to call a black man a "nigger".

Why should they stick up for minorities when they see Blacks are throwing the President under the bus? From the comments on this blog, many of you don't think much of Obama anymore. You have joined Rush Limbaugh in helping to denounce the President. If I were Obama I would be leary of speaking up for you Negroes ever again.

Over the past few days some of you folks have waffled back and forth to the extent that nobody knows where the hell you stand, including yourselves. One day you are down on Gates. The next day you are up about Gates. The next day you love the President because he spoke up about racial profiling. The next day you don't love him, even take down his picture because you think he shouldn't have retracted the word "stupidly", which was insulting to the police department. Also, it was the neighbor's fault because 'IF' there was a White person involved, it would have been different. Some Black folks like to play that unfair game called "IF". If, If, If. Hell, "If" a buzzard had a harp in its ass we'd have music in the air, too. But what "if" the eagle would want the harp? if, if, if. Some black folks would rather play that mindless miserable "if" game than to actually think about positive outcomes.

Again, you have joined Rush in being against the POTUS. Right about now, I believe Obama could use some Black love and support, but you are too busy acting fools against him. I am sure racists like Limbaugh and others really appreciate your support. You might be disappointed in the President, but I am sure the feeling is mutual.

BTW, it's not the President who is losing credibility it's those fickle-faced needy Black folks who fluctuate day-to-day with their childish moods swings.

I'd hope Mrs. Kravitz would call the cops if she saw anyone she didn't imemdiately recognize trying to push in a neighbor's door. If only black guys alarm her, that's her problem. I wouldn't qwant her to deal with tit by ignoring all suspicious activity she sees when she peeks out her window. Smart burglars don't knock over houses at night anymore; there's always somebody home. But if I lived across the street from her, I'd make sure my shades were drawn at night.

He knew his words would be fodder for the wingnuts, but he wanted to, for the moment, support his friend, fully knowing that he would have to partially retract his statement and make amends.

Seriously Gates never once took the time to explain in this opportune public forum that the very profiling that was happening to him was being done at that very minute to poor & middle of the road income blacks that probably couldn't afford bail or a lawyer would still be locked up and convicted once going to trail, with even more incendinary false charges pressed against them. Bottom line, the police knew who Gates was before they got to his house, when blacks live in up scale prodominately white areas the police know the owners name, any criminal history, political affiliation, approx income, date of birth, etc., this case is a typical case of re-issuing Skip's kneegrow pass he dropped, and yt's don't care if it's house or field, whatever, when you start demanding rights it's all the same to them, to the back of the bus and say mister when you address me boy, and like FN said it's nothing left to see here,better them than me, I'll swallow my blood before I swallow my 'black' pride KNEEGROWSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!!

And, talking to the family of the kid who runs, and thus is suspicious,and keeps getting arrested. But you see, every time he hears gun fire he runs because he has been shot before.

Field, I only wish these folks would get one tenth of the passion, attention, concern, etc as Mr. Gates, Mr. Crowley and a president was weighing in...... then maybe, just maybe the REAL ISSUE HERE would get addressed.

hennasplace said...

The President did not apologize, he regretted using the word stupidly. If you are a police officer and is thin-skinned, perhaps you should reconsider your career choice. He still meant what he said, but what interesting that Rachel Maddow brought that both of his statements were unscripted with him saying what he felt. You can look at what he did yesterday as a disappointment or as an opportunity.

It is urgent that something is done about healthcare reform, and now the President is off message about the topic. There 50 million people did not heathcare and a disportionate number are black and latino. Which means your barber may not health insurance.

Black women are likely to develop a more agressive breast cancer that is harder to treat which I can attest to because my mother died from the disease nine years ago this month. She was 62. I remember one prescription called neupogen which cost $900 even after her insurance covered the 85%. Fortunately, the mom and pop pharmacy worked an arrangement. He had to over charge so that my mother's payment portion would be lower.

I can get the community and work with the police reduce tensions, but we need to let the Pres get healthcare reform done. He cannot fight every battle particularly the local ones. We need to get our mayors and council people and make them do their jobs.

Now that fact that I am just 44% Negro, Skippy Gates, wanted to send her flowers and didn't hold her accountable, says as much about his self delusional ass as it does about anything else. I guess having over 50% white genes didn't prevent his black ass from getting hauled off to jail. Let's just call it the education of Dr. Henry Gates.

My reply:

But could he have really gone there, when he is married to a white woman? If you look at this interview, you can see where he talks about his upbringing and his mother's reaction to his fiancee:

http://www.booknotes.org/Transcript/?ProgramID=1220

I quote:

GATES: My mother hated white people.


LAMB: All her life?


GATES: Probably.

But she wanted us to go to integrated schools. She wanted us to live in an integrated economy. She wanted us even to live in integrated neighborhoods. She wanted us to be able to get the best that American society offered. She wanted us to be articulate, to speak white English, as we would call it, as well as black vernacular English. You know, she wanted us to know how to dress, how to talk, how to act, how to behave. She wanted us to go to private schools, to the Ivy League. I mean, she wanted us to be as successful as it was humanly possible to be in American society. But she always wanted us to remember, first and last, that we were black and that you could never trust white people. And so when I brought my fiancee home, who happened to be a white American, I thought World War III was about to break out between me and my mother, not to mention between my mother and my fiancee.


LAMB: And is your wife white?


GATES: Yeah. She's white.

Grinder, thanks for pointing us to Lashley's interview with Anderson Cooper, it's one of the most important things posted on this running commentary yet !

1. Lashley never went in the house, and from outside, he first heard (normal) conversational tones, then heard Prof. Gates' voice rise. Hear for yourself what he claims Prof. Gates said. Whether we want to debate that Prof. Gates got overly emotional or not, in Lashley's view, he didn't start out yelling, and what Lashley claims he heard was did not include abusive language, Gates articulated without profanity or personal belitting the sort of things one would expect someone who perceives he's being profiled might say. Why was Crowley, the profiling expert, so surprised at Gates' reaction?

2. Lashley states that he believes things would have gone differently had he been first on the scene. He even says outright that as a black man speaking to a black man. . . So, is Lashley admitting that sensitivity training failed Crowley in this case? Looks like Crowley really could use that teaching moment.

3. "He was outside.": Lashley's reaction to AC's clarification that Gates was on his front porch. Did you see Lashley's facial expression then, and other tics and fumbles earlier? Talk about Obama being put in a difficult position !

I was half way down the stairs going for the front door to greet them when they busted in with guns drawn. I stopped, put my hands in the air and tried to ask what was going on.

They were having no part of that and instructed me to lay on the ground. They cuffed me and were getting ready to question me when my Mom got home. She told them that I lived there and the cops let me go. They were a little dissapointed that I wasn't a burglar, but since I cooperated with them there was no reason to do anything more.

Did the police act stupidly? Maybe, but put yourself in their place...going into a residence where a report of a burglary was made. Did they over react? I felt they did at the time, but in retrospect I feel they believed that the handled this well. They captured the subject for questioning and diffused the situation. Could this have turned out differently? Yeah, I could have resisted and been shot.

Let's be reasonable here. The cops did their job. Cooler heads did not prevail and we have a situation that has been blown waaaaay out of proportion. Since I believe that this has absolutely nothing to do with color I don't need to tell you mine.

Gates is married to a white woman? Interesting. That's why he sent flowers to his neighbor.

I'll double co-sign that one babygirl.

And another thing...when is SOMEBODY gonna put that fat drug-addled, overeating, racist windbag bitch Rush Limpdick and that race-baiting Klansman Rat Buchannan in their place...I would love for one of them to walk thru my hood...them mofos always invoking and stokin' that good ole lynch-mob mentality in white folks...I would love to play Reggie Jackson on just one of them crackas.

It infuriates me that racist white boys like the fake moralist Bill Bennett can insinuate that aborting black babies to reduced the crime rate would be a good thing...but he rejects a woman's right to control her own body and life. Has ANYONE in the media confronted this cracka on that strange dichotomy?

OR...that Rat Buchannan can go on tv and make statements like we should be glad we were brought to amerikkka and enslaved...but draw no parallel to the prosperity and wealth of this nation created on the destruction of one civilization and enslavement of Africans.

It amazes me that most black folks in amerikkka don't realized that the OLD laws of Jim Crow still apply in this nation...that white folks don't have to respect anything when it applies to black folks!...our homes, our children, our women, our HUMANITY! Skip Gates found out that regardless of his status as a "well-educated, Harvard kneegrow", and being married to white female...HE'S STILL A NIGGA! And Obama's tacit retraction of what he, I truly feel meant...is indicative of the white man being offended and even though his half-black azz is the CIC...he's gotta apologize like a good nigga!

For clarification to all here...I was NEVER a supporter of BO...Cynthia McKinney is a real leader to me. This sista stands for REAL EQUALITY AND FREEDOM. But see, ya'll niggas here to fuckin blinded by amerikkkan politriks and excess than worryin about what really matters..right?

Oppressed people are catching hell all over the world but we to busy worryin about Chris Brown and Rihanna...or Jay Z and Beyonce...WAKE THE FUCK UP FAMILY!

Family...the real war is manifest spiritually...we have emulated the nature of the devil as we have bought into his culture of individualism, materialism, excess and this charade called "demoncracy".

We have ignored and of course, been led astray thru deception and tricknology; the warnings of OUR "cognizant" ancestors of rebellion...Frederick Douglass...Fannie Lou Hamer...Medger Evers...Bro. Malcolm...Dr. King...Marcus Garvey ...Bro. Fred Hampton...who are now nothing more than a sidebar commentary in the lexicon of so-called black history and conversation.

We have settled for the amerikkkan dream, rather than the dream of our fathers...FREEDOM and RESPECT FOR OUR HUMANITY.

Do you really think you're free in amerikka?

Yes, Obama does read the internet and this blog is(was) probably one of them. He knows his picture has been taken down and support on this blog is lacking. After standing up for Gates, and using the incident to speak out against racial profiling-even said the police handled the matter stupidly-you Negroes find fault with him for having to retract an insulting word to Whites. You talk about Whites being stupid? You aren't so smart either. That's like the pot calling the kettle black.

I hope from reading this blog, that Obama has learned that it doesn't pay to stick his neck out for folks who hate Whites so much that they WILL turn against him over bs!

grinder said...

Okay, I get it: If I go outside my door, behave loud and obnoxious, in the presence of a police officer, who's just responded to a burglary call at my residence, then its okay to arrest me!

I don't know how many times I've said this now, but I for one do not think the arrest of Gates was justified. The reason I am interested in Gates's behavior is for the purpose of ascertaining the nature and extent of the cop's misjudgment.

I think Lashley's account is of interest, not just because he's a black police officer but because he was on the scene and is therefore a witness. I don't agree with him that the arrest was justified, but nor do I think he's some sort of "race traitor" or coward.

Quite to the contrary, Lashley comes across as a tough but even-tempered cop; reminds me a bit of the black motorcycle cop in Boston who pulled me over after I made a classic stupid driving move. He gave me a ration of shit for what I did, but when I flat out admitted I was about 200% wrong he let me off with a warning rather than a ticket. It might be the only time in my life that I've ever been grateful for being yelled at.

I really wish people here would back off of their hair-trigger reactions. For God's sake, we are all fallible human beings who regularly fail to meet our own and others' expectations. AS I look at this, the president of the United States has just set a national example that everyone would do well to examine: He said something he shouldn't have said, and then he went out and publicly corrected himself.

I might have written on this blog last year that one of my judgments about Obama would come during his presidency when he fucked something up, as presidents always do, because they are also human beings and not robots or gods. At that point, would he do what politicians usually do and deny his mistake, or would he face it head on even if it was not to his advantage to do so?

I think President Obama just passed that test with flying colors. I have been waiting an awfully long time to see that sort of character in a president, and now we have it. I really hope that some people are seeing what I see, and will take it to heart. Obama didn't come right out and say, "I was wrong," but it was close enough for horseshoes in my book, and I was mightily impressed.

Now, what would really< impress me is if, after that beer at the White House, Gates and Crowley would come out of there both eating some crow and shaking hands. Folks, if we can't get along, all hope is lost.

Sure he was elected but he most definitely was nominated and given the go-ahead/thumbs-up/seal of approval by the people who really run this country (federal reserve/bankers/lobbyist/special interest groups). I keep forgetting that President Obama was not put here to defend the interests of citizens, he is in that spot to advance American empire and the interests of about 10% of the citizens of this nation.

p.s.: If I get my wish with respect to Gates and Crowley, does that mean all's well between black and white in A-merry-ca? Hell no. You can't expect that. But would it be anokissther bit of progress in the shitstorm? Hell yes.

And it wouldn't just be progress between black and white. It would be a nice little moment of civility and grace in a society sorely lacking in these things. Might be a little corny to have these guys kiss 'n make up in front of the whole country, but there are times when that sort of thing is exactly what's needed.

Damn it, folks, set an example. People are watching. I don't think that cop is a racist idiot, and Henry Louis Gates is an educated man. So, guys, do the right thing.

Gregory Wojowski said...

As a white male, I can finally understand the varied perspective of most blacks here. I have witnessed personally racism's sting with my own eyes and ears. The foul treatment of my friend and co-worker by police in Danville, California was evidence enough for me that racism is anathema to our democracy and has perpetually kept us from respecting each others "humanity" as another person here opined.

I've been most grateful to have this man as a friend for a long time and after this incident and a long discussion (over three days) about race and racism, I can say that I have a better perspective and can now truly empathize without the blinders of my whiteness...for my white bretheren that may be visiting here...you know what I'm talking about...that condition, psychologically and socially...that which black americans deal with daily in this nation, that we don't ever have to think about...and that's race.

Race to most whites is a subject that is all-too familiar but one that is a pain for them to address. Most whites see race as a "problem" of black people...particularly, black americans. Whereas, black americans see race as a constant abberation and hinderance to their human-ness, i.e., humanity.

Oppression and poverty was not created by black people...particularly black americans. Racism, greed and politics created those things in this country.

I believe that we as a nation must dialogue about racism. IMHO it is a destructive and evil force that MUST be eliminated from all perspective of our society...for the future of our children and survival of our nation. I believe our President has a great opportunity to create such a dialogue and I believe Holder would be more than capable as he has shown his interest in doing this from the start.

We must not let archaic and hateful institutions and structures of inequality and racism be constructs for the future of our nation...our children deserve better.

Skippy is one more educated and upper class man sending an indirect message to other, younger black men: light is right when it comes to women. How many white men in similar positions do you see married to nonwhite women? Is this a coincidence? How many white athletes are married to black women? Black women have one of the lowest rates of marriages and yet guys like Skippy (who call on the black community when it benefits them) chase after light skin and white skin.

I never said he did not have the right to marry whomever he pleases...lol. That's not the issue.

I hope there will be a national discussion about race, but I am not sure it will happen. IMO, it's too painful for most. Some Blacks and Whites have been so hurt and damaged by racism they can't talk about it without having a vitriolic meltdown.

Still, it must be done. We have to wade through the anger and grief in order to become free of it. Here's hoping and praying...

There are an estimated 1.5 million Black men in prison and another 3.5 million on probation. Black males make up more than 70 percent of the total prison population, even though they make up only 6 percent of the U.S. population.

Although blacks are 12% of the population in reality it is just 2% of the blacks that commit 50% of the murders and a greater percentage of other crimes. Consider: black females - 6%. Blacks from zero yrs. to 12 yrs. and black males from 50-100 years commit an infinitesimal percentage of the crimes. Therefore we are left with two percent. If we eliminate crimes committed by this two percent from the U.S. statistics our country compares very favorably with all Western countries. Fact -- blacks kill 7 times more than whites kill. Fact -- blacks kill whites 20 times more than whites kill blacks. Fact -- blacks mug or commit group crime against whites 50 times more than whites commit against blacks. Fact -- blacks rape white women 2000 (yes 2000) times more than whites rape black women. In New York City, about 300 white women are raped by blacks every year BUT there has not been a black woman raped by a white male in anybody¢s memory (going back over 20 yrs.) Consider: Al Sharpton had to go upstate New York to find a hoax and that was almost 20 years ago. (Source NYT 4/22/05)

According to the Bureau of Justice Statistics 2004 report (released May 2006), blacks commit 54 percent of the homicides in America even though they constitute only 12 percent of the population.

An individual black male is seven times more likely to commit murder than an individual white male. It so happens that black felons commit 43 percent of aggravated assaults, 66 percent of armed robberies, 27 percent of rapes and 85 percent of interracial crimes of violence, mainly against whites (this last figure from a Justice Department report 2003). However, it's not just in the United States. The greatest dicators in recent years have emerged in Africa. People like Idi Amin of Uganda, Hastings Kamuzu Banda in Malawi, Mobutu Sese Seko, in Zaire, self-anointed Emperor Bokassa of the Central African Republic, Mohammed Saidi Barre in Somalia, Sani Abacha of Nigeria, Robert Mugabe in Zimbabwe -- the list is endless

Do white people get the crap kicked out of them by police?

Hell, yes. But not by a bunch of black cops. That would be career suicide.

Only white people are allowed to kill other white people.

I will say, Gates' "outrage" comes across as bullshit.

I get the "Don't you know who I am?" vibe from him.

If Obama wants to address profiling, he needs to come out, and address it. Straight up, no chaser.

LOL Now I HOPE (and I sincerely believe) you were being sarcastic.

Because I've seen Skip Gates wife, and she's a short, sloppy fat, pasty and homely WW that Skip wouldn't have given the time of day to if she had been black.

She and his daughters were featured in one of his PBS specials years ago. When they went to Africa. I thought DAMN how pathetic. This is all he could attract?

Now MAYBE she has a heart of gold, and an intellect, but looks wise she fits that trailer trash label to a tee.

But hey, whatever floats ones boat...

Field, I have not had time to check the blog out the past couple of days up until a couple of hours ago.

166 comments on this subject as of present have failed to shine light on what is assuredly the most spectacular comment so far IMHO.

I would typify myself as an Obama supporter in general and usually classify most anti-Obama comments as the opinion of racists, bitter Toms, or radicaly confused fools who would bitch about anything no matter the circumstance.

There have been a great deal of ignorant comments directed towards Obama and I generally just shake my head and move on with my reading.

I witnessed the media assult on Obama's "Mom Jeans" and found a paticular story on CNN during Rick Sanchez's show discussing the topic to be one of the funniest things I have heard in recent history.

I have heard Obama called some of everything but I did not think it could get very much worse (or accurate) than Obama being accused of wearing "Mom Jeans" until I logged onto your blog earlier.

One particular attribute to Obama from you made me laugh past the point of tears and has had me laughing internally for the last couple of hours.

Why does Obama have to be
"Black-barry", Field?

"Black-barry"..........WOW!!!

You are a creative genius my friend, and I would not want to get on your bad side.

FN, this is probably the best post you have ever done! I am totally in agreement with your decision to revoke Barry's FN status....I'm a tad pissed at him at the moment. Come on Prez, stop throwing folks under the bus.

There are an ABUNDANCE of single black women looking for a man. Black female beauty is both denigrated and found wanting when compared to white standards of beauty. Yet, Skippy, a man who would be considered a huge catch for black women, marries a plain-jane white girl. It's just another in a series of powerful messages to black men on the make about the desirability of white and light skin and the inferiority of black female beauty.

Trying to find an image of Gates and his family to see which commenter was correct in discription, I came across the following:

"Henry Louis "Skip" Gates has for years been methodically promoted by white and Jewish America as the officially approved representative of the Negro constituency, but never so openly and controversially as in this Boston Magazine article.





The article is a typical Skip Gates promotional piece, but with two major differences--it is brutally frank about white America's role in conjuring this "leader" out of its hat and it demonstrates, wittingly or otherwise, the contempt which white America reserves even for Black folk who do its bidding. The Head Negro (really "Nigger") in Charge designation is one of the most eloquent of African America's multitudinous expressions of hatred for traitors to the race. It is said to have its origins in slavery among the field slaves who viewed with contempt and disgust the antics of the sellouts that ole massa handpicked to lead them."

Who care's about THE FIELD NEGRO revoking the President's PASS? I'm sure the President could care less!

White Men have been buying GUN'S the moment the President won the ELECTION! and who do you think they can't wait to use those gun's on? take a wild guess? how many black folk's got money to buy GUN'S with?

The President was bold enough to come forth and tell AMERICA that the WHITE MAN was out of line!!

The President was speaking to white men in general!! and look what happened the next day! SPOILED WHITE MEN had a Temper Tantrum as usual!!

FIELD want's the President to prove he care's about BLACK PEOPLE, but,yet it is okay for White Folk's to come on this BLOG and ATTACK a Black President!! now tell me is their PASS REVOKED!! NO!! they have free PASSAGE!!!

The President was trying his best to let BLACK AMERICA know that, he he was tuned in as far as the mistreatment of Minority Men! he was sending out a message, this was not about PROFESSOR GATE'S!!

Guns are being used on black men and women all the time. Yet, who's doing the killing? It sure isn't the white man. So why are you so worried about the chimera of racial war when black men, women, and children are being gunned down on a regular basis by their own?

I disagree with the posts concerning "Skip" Gates' white wife. Gates being an TOM is not indicative of his wife being white anymore than someone like say Pastor Manning, the devilish self hating Obama hater. If someone is a TOM they are a TOM because of their beliefs and actions, not because of who they marry.

Didn't Fredrick Douglass have a white wife as well?

Whitney B. said...

Off topic I am sure and I have not read anything on this blog or thread:

Y'all know what's going on down in Tex-ass?

KKK and Panthers gathering over a killing where justic seems not to be served up. Where is the press, where is the outcry?

Field,
Find out about this and do something!

Your humble servant,
Whitney

Man, I keep thinking what if something similar had happen to Maulana Karenga (CSU-Hayward). We probably would've heard a blurb here or there about the founder of Kwanza and former black panther gettin' clubbed and arrested for "disorderly conduct" in his own home. Would Skip Gates be all over the Cable TV talking about his next documentary on blacks and the criminal justice system?

west coast story said...

This site used to have thoughtful discussion sprinkled with a few wingnuts but the wingnuts have taken over.

Mostly what I'm hearing is a lot of class envy. How interesting that Gates is considered an Uncle Tom because he is not walking around paranoid, defensive, and weighted down with a big fat chip on his shoulder. Imagine the gall of a black man expecting to be treated like anyone else and not a victim.

You better be damn glad for the "ivory tower negroes" because they are doing a hell of a lot more for black folks than the crabs in this barrel.

Not only was Frederick Douglass' wife white, so was his father. And I think he wore blue contact lenses

She would just have assumed that the white man trying to push the front door open belonged there. End of story.

Spoken like a true racist ... assuming what another person's actions would be based on their color.

Anon 3:49PM "i think you are getting it? I mean after all, this is an amusing and educational blog but is it making a fig leaf's worth of difference? No.. it's simply preaching to the choir. Lions and hyenas is still the status quo."

Good point. With a few exceptions, it looks like most people here want to perpetuate racism through their unexamined presuppositions about each other and even apply ‘Newton’s Third Law of Motion to justify their racist views and behavior. It's amusing high drama, but as you have said, it isn’t worth one fig leaf.

First of all, I am TOTALLY DISAPPOINTED IN OBAMA! Isn't he a lawyer? And aren't lawyers supposed to keep their mouthes shut until they have all the evidence? Aren't they supposed to know when to speak, and then pick and choose their words carefully?

Second of all, I am not suprised to hear the Gates has a white wife. After all, he is like most other "SELF HATING" NEGROES. They claim to be so proud of their "African Heritage" but then GRIN LIKE A LAWN JOCKEY WHEN THEY FIND OUT THAT THEY HAVE A SINGLE DROP OF THE "SLAVE MASTER'S BLOOD" IN THEIR VEINS. Like their is something to be proud about carrying the blood of the people who RAPED AND SODOMIZED, AND WIPED OUT YOUR ANCESTORS.

Lastly, as for the
"Good N_ _ _ _ R" officer who jumped to the defense of the white guy...this is also typical of self hating black folks who are constantly seeking ACCEPTANCE FROM THE "SLAVE MASTER." BLACK FOLKS WILL LITERALLY "DIE" TRYING TO BE OBEDIENT SLAVES. We're no longer in physical chains but our MINDS ARE FOREVER ENSLAVED.

THESE 3 are a perfect example of SORRY ASS N _ _ _ _ _ S!

Well if she doesn't like flowers, there's always 'free beer'.

Mike Spike said...

Flowers? The only kind of flowers that I would send to that "good neighbor" is poison ivy. When I am outside in my yard in the daytime hours, I can identify any of my neighbors even if I can't see their faces just by the way they move, or the shape of their bodies. That is because I have taken the time to get to know the people who live around me. Maybe if the "good neighbor" had taken the time to get to know the people who live around her (instead of banging her head on the wall because a black man lived in close proximity.....by the way that is a classic symptom if "white woman syndrome") she would have known that was her neighbor trying to get into the house and maybe even offered him help.

Anonymous said...

Amazing how many people know his neighbor and what her intentions were. And she should have made the effort to get know Gates. And it's all her fault because she is a racist. Why are Blacks so all-knowing and Perfect? I mean, Blacks don't have to be there and right away they know what went down.

I can't wait to hear the 911 tapes. I got a bad feeling about them. It'll be interesting to read the comments after it is revealed that Gates acted a pure ass and the police report was accurate.lol It'll be both hilarious and shocking to hear Gates say on tape, "ya momma". LOL

Zoda88 said...

It's amazing when people such as the commenter above me constantly side with the police no matter what they do. These were the same idiots who said that Abner Louima was gay when he was sodmized by officer volpe. These were the same fools who said that Kathryn Johnston was CLEARLY a drug dealer when she was shot in her own home by the police. They'll gladly bow to someone so long as they have a badge and a uniform. That Gates, he was just too much of an uppity Negro. That's why he was so angry and I'm sure these 'patriots' would love to be able to hear those tapes so that they can say "See, Gates deserved what he got because he had the nerve to get mad. If he had just been more 'polite' and subservient maybe Officer Crowley would have given him a pet on the head and some cookies."

I don't know much about Gates but it amazed me to see him on CNN the other day talking about how he finally understood how minorities and the poor felt about being persecuted by the police. Does he watch the news? Hell, he's supposed to be a historian of African history; he should already know these things. It really pissed me off to hear him say that.

He DOES know these things. It just that you want to believe him no matter what. Any AA historian can give you reams of info about police profiling and police brutality of Blacks. Why would you believe someone who is Black, an AA historian, and 58 years old who claimed his ignorance of what has been happening to Black men well beyond 58 years?

You are amazed at me? You should be amazed at yourself.

This police officer looks just "Officer Mark Furhman", prosecution witness in the O.J. Simpson case. Remember the one who said he had never used the "N" word, and then the late Johnny Cochran brought tapes into court proving that Furhman had used the "N" word over one hundred times?

I suspect that if this officer's background were investigated a bit, it would become clear that he has more than a little bit in common with Mark Furhman. But since the charges against Gates were dropped that intense investigation is not as likely to occur.
