Surprise: Gates' "Attitude Poor" When Pulled Over for Speeding in 1984
— Ace Old by now -- happened last night -- but I don't see it on the site.
Compare to the woman defending herself for merely making a 911 call about what appeared to be a robbery in progress.
This is, I think, why white people wig out about this whole issueb (as do "Uncle Tom" blacks). They (we) know we're all just one convenient racial controversy away from having the hounds called on us, as blacks react in a tribal fashion (that is, primarily exhibiting "racial solidarity," auotmaticaly siding with the member of the tribe), and the media of course takes that side too, and very few whites or "Uncle Tom" blacks are wiling to speak out in defense, because, hey, we don't want to be called "racist" or "Uncle Tom" either.
Better to let the sharks have this unfortunate stray than to try to rescue him. No one wants to draw the attention of the sharks, next.
In the scheme of things, Lashley and the woman who called didn't even get it that bad. The whole of the media wasn't united against them. It never became the official position of a respectable political group (or the position of blacks generally) that their scalps were required.
That happens. It didn't happen here.
Still, they got an awful lot of harassment and hatred. For what? For nothing. A woman who did her job as a vigilant citizen and a cop who did his job as an honest cop.
Barack Obama and "Skip" Gates endlessly lecture, but they only lecture to whites (and "Uncle Toms"). They don't lecture to race-conscious blacks to maybe calm down a little, to be a little slower on the trigger, to maybe demonstrate a bit of the racial goodwil they urge on whites.
Nor, of course, wil they permit themselves to be lectured to.
It's sweet as hell Lashley did this.
Not only is this a genuine "teachable moment" that might add some needed realism and nuance to that "national discussion on race" we've supposedly been having, but -- forgive me for being an incorrigible partisan -- Lashley pretty much demands Gates responds, thus keeping Obama's controversy alive for a few more days.
Actually... I was too fast -- too race-conscious -- to pin this on blacks.
It's not blacks per se. It's liberals, including white liberals, who attempt to "win" every argument by resort to the harsh ad hoimem of "racist."
Oppose us on health care? Racist. Oppose us on increasing taxes? Racist. Oppose us on amnesty? Racist.
Respond to a 911 call of a possible burglary in progress? Racist, assuming the people found at the scene are minorities. If they're white, as Allah noted, then of course you're not a racist. If you blow the whistle on whites shouldering a door in, you're a commendably civic-minded citizen.
This has to stop.
But it won't.
"Attitude Poor:" That's all we know of Gates' 1984 speeding citation. He protested the ticket and the speeding charge was dropped. He had to pay $25 in court costs.
Which, by the way, is very common. I did it myself. Any time you protest a ticket the police have to decide whether it's more important to send the cop to court, taking him from his patrol duties, or make sure you get nailed for the ticket. Most of the time they let you skate, unless you're a serial offender.
So, Gates doesn't like cops and thinks it's beneath his dignity to be stopped on the road while speeding. Didn't see that one coming.
