Thank you Lynn Fucking Sweet for asking the question that has now driven the whole media into a frenzy over the Crowley-Gates ordeal. Thank you for asking a question so off topic that it drives me mad. In the middle of Q&A over health care you have managed to distract an entire nation's worth of media on to possibly one of the most mundane and over-hyped "news events" possibly witnessed. The fact that people are now complaining about what beer the President will drink is all down to you, you bitch, thanks a lot.
My anger is because there is just so much more going on in the world than having to worry about a white cop and a black professor. Was it a legitimate question? Sure, why not, what question isn't? But it was so off topic, and there are so many better examples of poor race relations that you could have pointed to. In fact, on the same day a black ambulance driver was choked out by a white cop because he didn't yield his vehicle to him during an emergency response - you want to talk about race relations in this country? That's probably a more appropriate situation than a well-to-do Harvard professor breaking in to his own house being arrested for refusing to comply with a white policeman. But no, some nobody from the south won't generate media orgasms like a well known Harvard professor and a police officer that gave CPR to the Boston Celtics' Reggie Lewis, will they? Oh God the controversy makes my bowels move.
Well done Obama too, Mr. I don't know all of the facts but I'll take a side. I mean c'mon, the story had barely broken, the police report wasn't even written yet, nor was the accused's testimony out, but using sound judgement that I just plucked from my arsehole I can predict what actually took place. Poor judgement on your behalf sir, should have kept schtum.
I'm not taking a side in this at all, the moral for me is don't be an ass to the police, don't send a racially loaded email to the Boston Globe, and don't assume things are necessarily about race. Either way now we're forced to listen to what beer all these idiots will have to drink at this "beer summit" - for fuck's sake Crowley should order a Guinness and Gates a White Russian, lets all hold hands again.
