Gates and Crowley Update

In case you are at work and not able to watch the news, the Cambridge Police released the 9-11 tape and dispatch tape to the officers regarding Prof. Gates home and possible break in.

In neither the 9-11 tape or dispatch tape is "black" ever mentioned. The 9-11 operator asked the woman if the men were "white, black, or hispanic." The woman says one might be hispanic but she wasn't sure and that she didn't see the other one.

She also says "the gentlemen" may live there because there are suitcases on the floor, but they did bash in the door to get in.

So much for racial profiling.

Pajamas Media has excellent an article on why the Gates controversy matters.
