Crowley himself, speaking to the Globe yesterday and again last night in Natick, said he will not apologize and asserted, “I am not a racist.’’
Crowley’s police union issued a statement saying it had reviewed the arrest of Gates and expressed “full and unqualified support’’ for his actions.
You know, when some white people are accused of being racist, they will say "I know a black guy" or "I have a black friend", which usually makes the situation worse. However, in this case, the police officer's actions over the course of a lifetime prove that he does not have a racist bone in his body. Not only did he grow up with black kids, some of whom are friends to this day, but he is also the officer who attempted to save the life of a Cambridge University basketball player who collapsed on the court, and later died. Are his actions that of a racist? Hell no. What we witnessed with this story was an act of race baiting by the college professor. Morale of this story? Black people can be racists too.
