Harvard scholar Henry Louis Gates Jr. says he is 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 and saying "in the end, this is not about me at all."

He stirred the feces and now it’s time to move on?
Release the audio of him the officer recorded.
Let’s hear what got him handcuffed. I would bet he wasn’t a mild mannered professor.
The race pimp got EXACTLY what he wanted:
1. He’s a hero to millions of ignorant sheeple.
2. He’s got the backing of Obammy.
3. He’s free to turn this into the golden goose.
Obama is polling terribly on this, Rahm called Gates and read him the riot act, he promised to shovel some Stimulus money to Gates somehow as ‘reparations’ for this inconvenience, and that’s the end of it.
That’s how I envision what led to Gates making his plea to “move on” from this.
The guy goes on Radio programs afterward.....and NOW he wants to just “move on?” BAAAWWWAAAAHHHHHHHH.....you opened the can o’ worms you racist pig....now eat them.
Plase, Officer Crowley. . .do not have a beer with this con Marxist! Not in the White House; not anywhere. . .
move on eh?
LOL that’s code for OH HELL we stepped in it this time!
“Not about me”. Really?
You hit the nail on the head. The only reason he wants to move on is to prevent these tapes from being released. My guess is they will show him to be the elitist a#$hole he truly is.
GOOD POINT !
who WAS the other guy !
Be funny if he was a closet homo, that just got out’d
I don't think he can release it, unless Gates files a formal complaint or a lawsuit.
Probably some privacy issues.
And Gates knows it.
Obama and Gates should be on “The Days Of Our Lives” soap opera.What a joke.
Boy, that tape must be good!!
Gates, now doubt; begining to see; as does Obama no doubt; that this could turn into another 'Rev. Wright' unfolding.
More focus now being place upon Gates himself. . .as to the 'who/what' and 'what for' of this 'renowned
I confess I've been wary of taking Henry Louis Gates at his word ever since, almost two decades back, the literary scholar compared the lyrics of the rap group 2 Live Crew to those of the Bard of Avon. "It's like Shakespeare's 'My love is like a red, red rose,'" he declared, authoritatively, to a court in Fort Lauderdale.
As it happens, "My luv's like a red, red rose" was written by Robbie Burns, a couple of centuries after Shakespeare. Oh, well. 16th century English playwright, 18th century Scottish poet: What's the diff?
Dollars to doughnuts, there's a Kerryesque "Don't you know who I am? up in the middle of all the hystrionics.
You can imagine if that ‘busybody’ neighbor had come over to the Gates residence the next day and said “I thought someone was breaking into your house last night and called 911 and apparently no one showed up”.
Now the uproar from that would have been as bad if not worse than the ongoing turmoil.
The poor soul is entrapped in a seductive net. He is praised and revered by his fellow loonies for projecting his own ethical failings on to others. How difficult it would be to start owning up now.
Now I REALLY want to hear those tapes.
Another words, “I don’t have a leg to stand on and the President said this will kill the whole socialist agenda we have been concocting the past year with Bill Ayers and George Soros.”
‘STUF or we’ll release the damn tapes’
Gag me with a spoon..........
Just what did Obama teach us??? How to step in it and look like an ass without trying? The Chris Rock "How not to get your ass kicked by the police"
I wonder if he understand just how condescending and arrogant that quote sounds to your average American.
“in the end, this is not about me at all.”
I wonder what it’s like to go around thinking everything that happens to you is a symbol for some deeper societal problem, instead of a random event in a not-so-orderly world.
The "I'm a victim so I'm too special to be held to the same standards as others" is getting old. Real old.
Might be time for an honest talk.
On the one hand, we have:
“Love’s not Time’s fool, though rosy lips and cheeks
Within his bending sickle’s compass come:
Love alters not with his brief hours and weeks,
But bears it out even to the edge of doom.”
On the other:
“Ahh! Me so horny. Me love you long time”
Or maybe that’s not fair, since 2 Live Crew the above quote was not written by any member of 2 Live Crew. But trust me, that’s about as good as it gets.
The Pres. has tipped his hand sooner than he planed on doing it. The cat is out of the bag now.
Does anyone else find it surprising that the media hasn’t tracked down and interviewed any of the witnesses to this...specifically the woman who called 911?
No.. the feces have now been sent to a lab and are being examined. Seems there are some who are checking into his affiliations, tax status, etc. All of which “smell” to high heaven..
Ok, let's move on to other things.
He has 2 daughters but seems to have no wife.
Sounds to me that he’s having an ‘oh chit’ moment, in thinking about his scam charity and whatever else he’s doing that’s questionable.
I say we keep the heat on this loser and expose him for just what he is, and obummer, by association
The Taiwan Times version of the story contained this interesting bit:
To his eventual embarrassment, he wrote in his Yale application:
"As always, whitey now sits in judgment of me, preparing to cast my fate. It is your decision either to let me blow with the wind as a nonentity or to encourage the development of self. Allow me to prove myself."
That crucial bit of data was edited out of the Charlotte Observer. I wonder why. It certainly seems relevant background information to me. It says a lot about the man that he disparaged "whitey" on his Yale application (it says interesting things about Yale, as well, but that's a discussion for another place). Does he still have a chip on his shoulder? It certainly seems so to me. But why not give the reader all pertinent information? Why edit this very telling bit of information out of the story?
Probably like acute schizophrenia....
Under the bus Gates goes!!!
And his charity trust fund, he wants to keep that quiet.
And the other racial comments he has made, he doesn’t want that to come out.
And his relationship with OTHER radicals?
We need to do, to this nut, what the left did to Joe the Plummer.
Thanks for the info SNC.
****He even vowed to make a documentary on his arrest to tie into a larger project about racial profiling****
*Tin foil hat time* Rather convenient. was this whole thing a setup?
You mean the ones taken before they get there. ..cause I think; knowing Obama hospitality; there will be NO menu/lol.
“not about me”
That seems to be THE talking point about every mess they find themselves in.
At any rate I think he’ll find himself under the bus pretty soon and he’ll be on his own.
No. I’m thinking of a number...
Obama called and offered him a deal - Back off lawsuits and anything else that would keep this thing in the news, and Obama will give him something valuable down the line. A cherry spot in the administration, an ambassadorship, cash, something.
So Gates backs off.
Obama never does any quid pro quo where both sides of the deal are paid off at the same time. Most times, one party waits for a year or two before getting their payment. That’s The Obama Way.
