…is fooling themselves. So Henry Louis Gates Jr., one of the most famous black scholars alive today and a professor at Harvard, had some trouble getting his key in the lock of his Cambridge home. Police arrived to investigate a possible break-in. (Can anybody say racial profiling?) When Gates showed them his i.d. to prove that he owned the home, they arrested him for disorderly conduct. Un-effing-believable.
P.S. I know that Professor West got belligerant with the cop. But I guess the truth is, I don’t blame him.
