Looks like the Hahvahd Racist is now adopting the tried & true Demoscummic line: “Let’s move on.”
Black Harvard scholar Henry Louis Gates Jr. says he’s ready to move on from his arrest by a white police officer, hoping to use the encounter to improve fairness in the criminal justice system
Because, as we all know, if the criminal justice system is to be fair, no black man is to ever be arrested, ever. Even if he’s there at the scene, holding the murder weapon, the victim’s blood dripping from his hand.
Because to do so, y’know – well, that would be RAAAAAAAAAAAAAACISSSSSSST!!!!!
and saying “in the end, this is not about me at all.”
Rule Of Thumb number 35,269: If they say it’s not about them, trust me – it’s about them.
After a phone call from President Barack Obama urging calm in the aftermath of his arrest last week, Gates said he would accept Obama’s invitation to the White House for a beer with him and Cambridge police Sgt. James Crowley.
In a statement posted Friday on The Root, a Web site Gates oversees, the scholar said he told Obama he’d be happy to meet with Crowley, whom Gates had accused of racial profiling.
“I told the president that my principal regret was that all of the attention paid to his deeply supportive remarks during his press conference had distracted attention from his health care initiative,” Gates said. “I am pleased that he, too, is eager to use my experience as a teaching moment, and if meeting Sergeant Crowley for a beer with the president will further that end, then I would be happy to oblige.”
Interesting change of tone here. Wonder if it has anything to do with the fact that, after he laid down this pile of shitty behavior, he then proceeded to step in it?
Gates: I would love to meet with Sgt Crowley …
Gates: I would love for him to look me in the eye and say ‘Professor Gates, I am sorry. I am sorry for the way I treated you. I am sorry for the fabrications I..I had to put in that report. And if he’s sincere, I would forgive him as a human being.
So what we now have, sportz fanz, is not only did that son-of-a-bitch Gates accuse Sgt. Crowley of racism, he’s now accused him of being a liar, to boot.
If I were Crowley, I’d stay as far away from that “meeting” as humanly possible. (I’d also change my registration to Republican, but that’s another post.) Then, when asked about it, I’d say, “Sorry, I don’t drink with assclowns who call me a liar.”
But that’s just me.
