President Says Cambridge Police Stupid in Gates Arrest

How stupid is it, to unjustly arrest a friend of the President of the United states of America, in his own home?

World renown Black Harvard Professor Henry Louis Gates Jr. was tricked into arrest White cop. There are three things I would like to say about this event.

From a Cultural Health perspective Gates is known in some quarters of the AA community as skip the truth Gate for skipping over Classical African Civilization, kemet (Ancient Egypt) in his TV tour/history of Africa.

Second, this is another case where Dr. Gates's RaceDar was only partly turned on. He seemed to understand that he was being harassed by an extreme anti-humanist cop. but his RaceDar was not sufficiently functional to detect that he was in the presence of a possibly criminally insane person hiding in the police department. He is lucky he was not killed, remember the law abiding AA citizen in New York shot in his doorway some 40 times.

Third, like the President said, this should focus us on reform of police if we are all to be safe. No, racism is not dead, and the racists are not gone, there might be one standing next to you as we speak.
