Obama’s Beer Summit Set For Thursday

A suggestion from President Obama.  Hey guys, let’s just all get along and talk about this over a few beers. Of course, Henry Louis Gates Jr., the Harvard University Professor and Sgt. James Crowley, the Cambridge, Mass., Police Department both said yes. Let the summit over racial profiling begin.

What started as a local incident quickly became national when President Obama offered his two cents into the equation and stated that the “Cambridge police acted stupidly” in arresting the professor on a charge of disorderly conduct after a possible break in at his home. Charges were dropped against Professor Gates, but by then it was too late. Nobody has apologized, but Obama came the closest last week when he said his “choice of words was poor.”

White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs said in an interview that this summit might be the first step toward a rapprochement. “Whenever you get race and politics, it’s like catnip,” Gibbs said, sitting behind his desk in his West Wing office. “All you need is a spark — and cable television is happy to do that.”

It has been stated that “Law enforcement agencies will be watching closely for any sign that the president will favor his friend Gates over Crowley.”

I just wonder how long this summit will last. A black man, a white man, and a bi-racial man, drinking alcohol and discussing racial profiling. Could be interesting….
