Obama's Beer Summit Begins

7/30/2009 7:40 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

In an attempt to calm racial tensions, President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden threw back beers with Harvard Professor Henry Louis Gates Jr. and the man who arrested him -- Police Sergeant James Crowley -- near the Oval Office today.

Obama's Beer Summit

A national debate on racial profiling occurred after Crowley arrested Gates for disorderly conduct during a burglary investigation at the professor's home.

But here's the important part -- the respective beers each man drank:

Obama
-- Bud Light
Biden -- Bucklers
Gates -- Sam Adams Light
Crowley -- Blue Moon

Oh my God. No sandwiches? Everybody in that group hates each other and then guy sitting next to him they hate double! It would have been HILARIOUS if they all got in a big fight and Michelle had to come and separate them. These people need to get a life.

It's painfully obvious that Obama was the "wrong" Black man to become the first Black President...He is a disgrace to BOTH of his races and has no idea, whatsoever, of the plight the blacks have faced since he was raised by his RICH, WHITE Grandparents...Obama's issues with race run far deeper than even he realizes, and until he comes to terms within himself, he's a dangerous person in a very powerful position...

90. Obama was stupid for opening his mouth before he got his facts straight. I hate stupid people. It cracks me up everytime when things don't go right for Blacks they have to bring race in to it. I had to crack up at Gates. Because when the 911 tapes were released there was nothing on it about race. What a dumb azz Gates was. Just shows that Gates is nothing but a F**king Lair. Obama didn't have has telepromter in front of him. Your ratings are going down stupid perz. Obama will only be a one term prez. This is what happens when you bring race into everything. OBAMA SUCKS BIG TIME............

103. I don't see where this was productive at all...
Obama and his buddy Gates will still be the firat ones to yell "RACISM" at any given chance...
Sgt. Crowley will still have to deal with idiots like Gates that are opportunistic "RACISTS", and defend himself against their lies...
Biden will still run his 10 cent mouth, which means it's probably a good thing he drank a "Non-Alcoholic" near-beer...
And the woman who called 911 will still receive death threats for being a good citizen...(why wasn't she invited?)

It's painfully obvious that Obama was the "wrong" Black man to become the first Black President...He is a disgrace to BOTH of his races and has no idea, whatsoever, of the plight the blacks have faced since he was raised by his RICH, WHITE Grandparents...Obama's issues with race run far deeper than even he realizes, and until he comes to terms within himself, he's a dangerous person in a very powerful position...

114. #8 I would disagree with you. The professor isnt the racist one here. The racist white cop. Most white white cops are racist.
