Yes I know we're not used to this, but now we have a president that thinks before he speaks(most of the time). This photo tells us nothing.

So I ask the same thing I asked diamond, what happened before and after?

Well we know exactly what happened after that photo. Not a very good example.

Or heck, maybe it was decided that the cop would help Gates down the steps, because what better than a photo-op to say "Look, he's helping him down the stairs! All is well!" That wouldn't surprise me, but I don't see how that's a bad thing.

.
I doubt that because, nobody apologized at the summit, there was no meeting of the hearts and minds-and Obama was trying to distance himself from an unresolved situation that he help foster.

However, I won't rule anything out because we weren't there, in the end, I do believe it does show Crowley for who he really is- a decent human being and a good cop.

It was a brilliant and wonderfully sarcastic post, but would only have gotten me into trouble.

You just proved my point, you view only see as a automotive salesperson only.
I chose to leave the auto industry almost 5 years ago.



It's ok, no offense taken.

Yes, the 'teachable moment' here is:

you shouldn't stereotype people due to their professions.

Right back at cha!!

And the comment about you selling cars was simply an identification of your job. If you took it as a slam, then I do apologize, but just for that part.

I think many here may have because of who Crowley was.
And maybe Gates did to a degree.

I think that's a lot of "may have"s and "maybe"s...

I looked at this poll last night and wondered if you would post it, I guessed right.

It's no secret that blacks and whites view this situation differently, the problem is that they've been brainwashed by the mainstream media that most cops are bad, when that is untrue. It's very untrue in this case.


Further, in the final results of this poll, most Americans collectively agree that Gates was more wrong than Crowley.



again, black people need to stop letting being black affect them so that they can't see reality.

if they were white, there wouldn't be these problems.
