Is anybody going to stand up for this phony hero Gates? I thought not. He is
illustrative of the race industry in America, and why much of white America feels no sympathy for his pandering ways.Identify an imagined slight then exploit it for all its worth. This fool only stokes whatever racial tensions he can find. America is not a racist country, whatever race baiters may tell you.

YO BOMA MADE A HUGGGGGE MISTAKE TALKING ABOUT THIS MORON ON TV! THE REASON RACISM IS GOING ON IS BECAUSE PEOPLE LIKE THIS!!! MAKES ME SICK! TIME TO GET OVER IT! I'D THROW A DAM BEER IN THIS GUYS FACE, HE IS SOOOOOO IGNORANT TO BE A PROFESSOR. I JUST HEARD THE 911 CALL AND THE WOMAN REPORTING DID NOTTTT MENTION THE RACE OF THE PPL SHE THOUGHT WERE BREAKING IN. MY ADVISE, DONT BOTHER CALL 911 BECAUSE LOOKS AT THE BACKLASH. THIS IDIOT WAS SOOO IGNORANT WHEN THE COPS SHOWED UP, THATS WHY HE WENT TO JAIL, NOT BECAUSE OF HIS COLOR!

This racebaiter was probally hoping to start some crap in the Resturant. Either that or Obama asked him to go to Hollywood to get support for his scam they call Healthcare Reform. This loser should be fired from Harvard University. I wouldn't want my kids or grandkids taught by him. And isn't funny Sharpton and Jackson are no where to be found. probally not enough money in it.

It's not Obama's job to teach us. A teaching moment? For what? For YOURSELF and YOUR WIFE! Obama made the matter worse, by having a press conference to diffuse the situation. He should just keep his mouth shut! He made it worse by thinking the American people are a bunch of idiots and we would believe it's an apology when it clearly WAS NOT! This guy teaches at the most elite school in America? Pretty pathetic! I have a question for GATES. Why are blacks so mad at the white man, when your own people sold you as slaves? Why don't you blame your own people?

This man is a disgrace. He will profit handsomely from this controversy. Nevermind that it was ultimately about NOTHING and temporarily raised racial tensions in a lot of poor, urban neighborhoods where people and police most need to work together and stand to lose the most. He doesn't care about anyone, black or white. The only thing he cares about is GREEN$$$$.

VERY ASHAMED OF OBAMA!!!! DO U THINK A WHITE PRESIDENT WOULD HAVE DONE THIS - NOOOO

I am soooooooooooo important that, if a good, well-trained, well-centered cop dares challenge the grandiose importance that exists in my mind only, I will get an invitation to the White House. This guy makes me SICK! And, in my opinion, he LIED about "Yo Mamma." The reason the good cop asked him to step outside was to prove to himself that no one was holding the jerk inside against his will. What a JERK!
