Almost two months later, the White House has officially released the photo above, with President Barack Obama walking to the Rose Garden, followed by Harvard professor Henry Louis Gates and Cambridge, Mass. police sergeant James Crowley.

So we're holding a caption contest. Give us what you've got. Bonus points if you make us ROTFL.

If you submit the epic caption and win, we'll send you a copy of Tram Nguyen's "Language Is a Place of Struggle: Great Quotes by People of Color."

We'll announce the winner over at RaceWire next Tuesday.
