“Napolitano will lie just like Obama to save her political "donkey". She has always been inept at ANY political post she has held and she is continuing that tradition.”

Really? And what lies would those be?”

“How refreshing! Someone finally said what has been obvious about SPLC for a very long time and on the Huffington Post no less. Will wonders never cease!”

“I agree completely. Thanks to Huffington for an honest attempt at bipartisanship for once.”

“That would be fine with me! Many of us carry our own copies of the legislation with us! I'm more than happy to point out the democratic congressmans stupidity! And your ignorance Estreet.”

“And what ignorance would that be Nurse Ratched?

Please leaf through your copy and tell me where it talks about euthanizing seniors.”

A Stranger in Mine Own House: Henry Louis Gates, Jr. and the Police in "Post-Racial" America

Commented Jul 22, 2009 at 14:07:43 in Politics

“From reading the actual news story, this is what I understood the situation to be. A 911 call was made and the caller stated that 2 black men were breaking into the house. When the police arrived Mr. Gates refused to comply with a police request to come out of the house and talk with them. He also refused to show his identification. Racial profiling? No. Racial profiling setup? Yes, Against the police. Mr. Gates oviously needed to have material for a new book. What better way to obtain it.”

“If you're from Iowa. You should know better. The last line in your post gives you away as someone who will believe whatever the Wingers say.”

“I guess we're chipping away at racism and I'm sure there are plenty of Americans, black and white, who have much ambivalence about the issue. I am offended that anyone would suggest Prof. Gates would be glad to have simply found new material for a book! Was this comment meant to be funny?

How can anyone know for a fact what Prof. Gates was thinking or whether this was racial profiling or not? How can anyone know what was in the mind of the neighbor who called 9-11, other than that she felt concerned? Both have been victims of some form of stereotyping. Thank heavens no guns were fired!

I believe people should learn about what it means to have empathy for those who've historically been marginalized.

Is it okay for nurses and doctors to tell patients that the pain they feel isn't real?”

“Except he showed his identification and Harvard University verified his identity and the fact that he is the legal resident of the home. Even the police report includes that information.”
