Mr. Prez, VP, Dr. Gates, and Officer Crowley Enjoy Beer Together

I genuinely appreicate the effort and statement that Pres. Obama is conveying, but this is corny, phony, and-- most of all-- a waste of time. I'm sorry, but there is just too much going on in America and abroad for this photo op. And the prez agrees. I don't know if anyone noticed, but he wants health care reform for Americans, not phony beer talks to appease people who are too sensitive to the adverb, "stupidly."

What's the point of the lunch when neither Officer Crowley or Dr. Gates apologize or at least acknowledge their mistakes? America, we've got to do better. The first step in resolving a problem is admitting to having a problem. And until we, as a nation, first acknowledge that racism is real, and not a figment of 13% of the population's imaginations, progress in race relations will contine to be very limited.

Side Notes:
1- Joe Biden is beasting on those peanuts or whatver they are. lol
2- If I see a photo of this beer get-together in a textbook for Black history, I'm burning it.
