Having A Beer At The White House. I have a question.

    This week, Harvard Professor Henry Louis Gates Jr. and Cambridge, Mass., police Sgt. Joseph Crowley were invited to the White House for a beer with the President and Vice President. They agreed to disagree after a friendly discussion about race.

    Now, suppose everything still happened exactly the same way. Suppose all of the circumstances were the same, except one: race.

    If Gates had been Hispanic, or Native American, or Asian, or even Middle Eastern, would he still have been invited to the White House for a beer with the President?

    I am not racist. I was just wondering. Has this thought occurred to anyone else?

    What are your views?

    I think them being friends is the reason for the relaxed meeting. The way they are acting, I wouldn't be surprised if they shared a tall one in the past and I don't mean beer, but that isn't fair, bromance isn't a crime.
