    Obama was making a joke about what would happen if he somehow "lost his keys" and tried to jimmy his way into the White House. He's right, if that happened, Rest Assured he would be shot.

    In context, to the cambridge thing it would be because he was black. You revisionists are funny today.

    Says a whole lot about refusing to grant interviews and just keeping your damn mouth shut.

    I guess I understand Gates. After years of learning to just put up with ****, sometimes you just wanna go ape**** on someone. He shoulda picked a better incident though.
    She never included the word "black" for your information.

    Racist bigot? He doesn't even fit the definition of a racist meaning he thinks his own race is far superior to other and has an extreme hatred of other races. Throughout Gates' career he had been harrassed people saying he didn't have the credentials for harvard even though his detractors were far less qualified. Other professors questioning his pay at Duke. Yes it was wrong for him to say the things that thus far have been attributed to him. But calling him a racist out of one incident without further proof of other occurances isn't enough to call him a racist or a bigot. Also his conduct didn't fit clause 1. and the assembly occurred because of curious onlookers as what usually happens when a cop car shows up at someone's house. Again what was the harm in the cop just walking away and leaving and letting Gates cool off on his own. It was a private neighborhood who exactly was Gates harming at this point? The cop's ego?

    No he wouldn't. You don't think the secret service has some sort of rule of "target identification"?
    "I condemn the ideology of White Supremacy and Nazism. They are thugs, criminals, and repugnant, and are against what I believe to be "The American Way" "
    Thus my obligatory condemnation of White supremacy will now be in every post, lest I be accused of supporting it because I didn't mention it specifically every time I post.

    You want the police to ignore someone breaking into your house and not investigate it.

    Noted.

    The officer described his actions outside that led to the warnings and then the arrest as 'tumultuous'.

    Its in the report.

    You are kidding right? :









    I love excuse makers.... Makes responding easy.....

    So in other words you can't back up what you say. If you make a claim I actually expect you to provide real tangible proof and not just get apathetic in your reply. Don't tell me show me. The term race baiting has been overused quite a bit in this last year with anyone and everyone without a general idea of what the term actually means.

    From wiki
    Race baiting is an act of using racially derisive language, actions or other forms of communication, to anger, intimidate or incite a person or groups of people, or to make those persons behave in ways that are inimical to their personal or group interests.

    Now in order to fit the criteria you have to prove intent. So where in any of that can you prove Obama 1. meant to incite anger, 2. intimidate or incite persons or groups to behave differently?

    I'm still waiting from the quote from the healthcare speech where you claimed Obama said he might be shot.

    And the quote from Dreams from my father were not Obama's words but Reverand Wrights. So again how was he race-baiting?

    Yeah that means that the police report had some errors in it as the report claimed she did describe what she thought to be two african americans approaching the house.
