This sort of blows my mind:
Harvard professor Henry Louis Gates Jr., one of the nation's pre-eminent African-American scholars, was arrested Thursday afternoon at his home by Cambridge police investigating a possible break-in. The incident raised concerns among some Harvard faculty that Gates was a victim of racial profiling.
Talk about the wrong guy to arrest walking into his own home. Jesus.

ETA: The police report is an interesting read.

It totally blows my mind. And Dear God, the comments about the story...it made me want to smack people upside the head.

If I read/hear one more person say "well we have a Black President, so of course there is no more racism," I am going to blow.
