African American Lawyer, Ted Williams, Rips Obama, Beer Summit

Williams: "What happened here with Professor Gates is not racial profiling at all, absolutely not... President Obama should not have gotten involved in this."

This is the first time I've heard this reporter and I must say she really should have just let the man talk. It is annoying when someone keeps talking over you when you are trying to answer a question or give your view. Ted Williams was very professional about it. I may not have been. Just my thoughts for future sit downs, give people time to respond without jabbering in the background. Nice analogy Ted!

What I find interesting is that Colin Powell, Ted Williams, Bill Cosby and Juan Williams (no relation) have all said this was NOT racial profiling on the part of Sgt Crowley. And that 0bama should not have injected himself into this situation. That he should have recused himself because of his established bias towards Gates, they are friends, and total lack of factual information at the time the question was posed to him. It was Gates and 0bama who were doing the racial profiling and falsely claimed racism.

Also noticed all the usual suspects with pre-organized protests for just such occasions, Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton, have been a no-show.
