White Cop Arrests Black Man, Has Beer with President

Filed under: Uncategorized — Michael E. van Landingham @ 9:38 pm

Let me get this series of unfortunate events straight:

  1. White cop arrests a prominent, elderly black Harvard professor without much cause in the professor’s own home and takes him to jail
  2. Cop charges him with disorderly conduct
  3. The charges are dropped
  4. The President, a man of color himself, calls the unapologetic cop stupid
  5. The result is that said cop gets to have a beer with the President, the Vice President and the arrested professor

It sure is nice to be a white man in America. Even when you do something utterly stupid, hubristic, and probably racist you end up having a beer with the most powerful man in the world and his sidekick Joe Biden. Now every officer is going to be arresting people without a reason to get into White House happy hour. I guess white cops are always right.
