Has the Henry Gates "race card" been neutralized?


Just a few days ago, Professor Henry Gates was roaring like a lion in his display to the nation as being a "racially profiled" victim. As details started to trickle out, Henry started to not look more and more as the victim he tried to present himself as being. He is now being seen in the light as the person who was the aggressor that sparked his arrest in the first place. It looks like common sense is starting to make a come back. I've noticed that Obama and Gates have dialed down their rhetoric over the last two days. I have several theories on why that is. The race card that Professor Henry Gates played has been neutralized on several fronts. Sgt. Leon Lashley (in the picture next to Sgt. Crowley) is the black police officer that was present when Sgt James Crowley arrested Professor Gates. I had to laugh how the media was so focused on presenting Henry Gate's arrest as a "racial" incident, yet they completely ignored the "x factor" in the equation being that a black officer was there and saw the whole episode. Well Sgt. Lashley has spoken out on the incident.

"Asked if Gates should have been arrested, Lashley said supported Crowley "100 percent."

With Sgt. Lashley supporting and agreeing with Sgt. Crowley's actions, that left Gates and Obama in a quagmire in the use of the race card. Sgt. Lashley also stated that Gate's reaction to Crowley was "a little bit stranger than it should have been". Since the incident, Police Officers from all races have come to the defense and support of Sgt. Crowley. So it appears that the whole matter isn't as "white vs black" as Henry and latter Barack tried to present it as being. This is possibly one reason why Barack has since backtracked from his "stupidly" comment.



The race aspect to the story no longer has much weight thanks to Sgt. Lashley and other cops from different races coming out for Sgt Crowley. Also, the internal polling of Obama's "stupidly" comment was running very negative against him. In the end, it would appear that Professor Henry Gates has come off sounding like a bitter old fool stuck in a mind trap of racial paranoia. I wonder will Sgt. Lashley and other black police officers be labeled "Uncle Toms" for dare defending Sgt. Crowley. I'm very glad they did speak up. Now hopefully the race hustlers and oversensitive black crybabies can fade away until the next knee jerk event happens that doesn't warrant overreaction but will happen anyways.

I am so sorry that Obama was raised to hate and destroy things before he really understands the reality. Henry Gates supported the rappers who said the cuss words calling black women bitches and whores waS A black cultural thing. Well maybe it is his culture not mind. I am no female dog nor a ho. He could be a great president if he had the right kind of mentors. He is surrounded by Islamomarxist/fascist and pretend Christians. With those sourroundings he will always fail.

Islam said last month that they plan to restart slavery of all non-muslims and in America they are doing it NOW.

Gates and Obama will be the first ones they destroy. I have seen video where the Muslims overseas make fun of Obama and he tries to be friends with them. See FFI.org for the video.

You mentioned the part in the Chris Rock skit about 'getting a white friend to avoid being shot by the police.'

Could this be now white cops have to bring a black cop along to avoid the race hustle attack?

I'm glad President Barrack Hussein Obama came out of this incident with egg on his face. The man could use some humility. In fact I hope he uses said incident to undo the damage he's doing to our nation. But I guess that is just wishful thinking on my part. Only God can change the heart of such an arrogant man whose heart is out for his own political gain.

Oh yeah, I almost forgot about that. The good professor defended the gutter filth of the rappers "Two LIve Crew". He said their trash was a "form of communication among African Americans".

I know the Chris Rock skit was made to be funny, but I think there is a grain of truth to it. If the black police officer wasn't there, Henry Gates would have been promoted in the eyes of the media and his supporters to the level of the "Jena 6". I believe that is a core reason why Sharpton and Jackson and others haven't come out as forcefully. This is a teachable moment. If White cops don't want to be branded as racists for merely doing their jobs. They better request that their partners all be black, Asian or Hispanic. That will be the only way to defuse the race card from being played Jason.

He didn't have his teleprompter to feed him his words Chilerkle. Basically Obama had a "Joe Biden" moment. This is what happens when Obama speaks in real time. He doesn't think. He's speech giver not a thinker. I knew people weren't going to find his "stupidly" remarks acceptable chilerkle. Even people in liberal Massachusetts are mad at Obama. I would shed a tear for him, but then I would want an Oscar nomination. lol

Chilerke "The man could use some humility. In fact I hope he uses said incident to undo the damage he's doing to our nation."

Obama hasn't had a great week Chilerkle. He's had a major set back on his government run health care bill and now this.

As a white female police officer I have faced the "racecard" being pulled several times. Wouldn't it be great if the "not my messiah" would live by Dr. King's beliefs! Anyway, thanks to all of you for standing behind those of us who to the best we can to keep our communities safe. Oh yeah, when that card get pulled on me I just laugh and think of the black guy I've been married to for 17 years.
