Dear Berks.,
Gates acted or over reacted poorly ( even for a member of academia). Grace under presssure ? He replied not as a Professor but as a gang-banger. You can take the boy out of the ghetto but apparently you cannot take the ghetto out of the boy. Gates wears a suit and tie and carries a cane but when the chips are down he reverts to stereotype. What a poor African-American role model ! Can one imagine the same behavior from Colin Powell? I think not.

Your post was well written. I regret that I missed the news conference. I'm sure I can find it on youtube.

I'm very proud of Obama for making that statement and the fact that he used humor only reinforces how intelligent he is.
