The Cambridge Controversy – A Late Night Thought

Friday, July 24th, 2009

Why hasn’t any reporter asked the President if he or his wife have ever experienced the kind of harrassment that Harvard Professor Henry Louis Gates experienced in his home? Or the kind of experience that the Center for Constitutional Rights and the New York Civil Liberties Union have been documenting about the NYPD treatment of People of Color in New York City. There are other forms of bigotry that blight the American Dream.

Personally, this writer is glad the Prez said what he said about the “stupidity” of the police at the scene. But this late night thought needs development.
