President Obama states the police acted stupidly in a situation between a white police officer and a black professor. Was he profiling the police officer - white police officer dealing with a black person is racist. Senator Boxer telling the President of the Black Chamber of commerce that the NAACP disagrees with him and he accuses her of being racist and she does not get it. Democratic supporters run adds in a southern state stating that if they electric Republicans "Black Churches will Burn". President Obama introduces his Supreme Court Nominee and points out that she is A Single, Hispanic Woman. Who is using race and playing the race card??

Well, in my humble opinion, Obama has been using the race card all along. Remember the comments about how he doesn't look like the other presidents on the five and ten dollar bills? And his grandmother is a typical white person? Personally, I'm sorta on the side of the white police officer. I think he should have just shown his ID and been glad that the police are doing their jobs protecting the neighborhood. Instead he got all mad and acted an a$$ and that's why he got arrested. I don't think that Obama should have said that the cop acted stupidly.

I do agree with you, that he should of been glad that the police was there checking out what was going on and making sure there was no break in. If he had showed his id and left it at that he probably wouldn't of been arrested. And Obama in my opinion is the racist because I really don't think he likes his mother and he has a problem with whites, since he is not a true black, in that I mean he did not have a black mother and a black father. So he is 50% while also, but you never see him bragging that he is also white. What does TYPICAL WHITE, mean to him. He was raised in Kenya where everyone is mostly black, didn't he use his BLACK statis to get him elected. Had it been a black cop he would of said nothing like he did.

"Democratic supporters run adds in a southern state stating that if they electric Republicans "Black Churches will Burn." PLEASE tell me you have a link to this! I have to have that in m favorites to use in the future. The answer is obvious. Democrats love playing the race card. Their whole agenda is centered around controlling minorities. I really wish more people would realize it, but they just don't get it.

The race card is used because black people for hundreds of years have been put down by the white man. So it will continue to be used till racism is gone from the face of this earth. I'm afraid that won't happen till the world ends. What I still don't understand if a neighbor is able to see two people trying to get in to this house how did she or he not realize that it was Mr. Gates. I know my neighbors faces, I know what they look like. I find this very strange.

That's a victim mentality and does no one any good. As far as I know about the neighbor, she is 60 and he rents the house, so who knows if she even recognized him. My neighbor across the street and a friend of hers kicked in her front door last winter and I called the police because I didn't recognize her dressed as she was. And we've lived across the street from each other for ten years. And by the way, we're both white and so was her friend who was helping her break in. You can see racism around every corner if you want to.

The neighbor reported two men with backpacks trying to force their way in to the back door. Seeing that a reasonable person would assume they did not belong there. It has now been reported that the police officer was having problems transmitting his information from inside the house and asked the professor to step out side. I get very frustrated when dealing with people but to become upset does not help. Most times when there is a confrontation between police and a suspect it is the suspect that starts by refusing to cooperate.
