Let me get this series of unfortunate events straight:
- White cop arrests a prominent, elderly black Harvard professor without much cause in the professor’s own home and takes him to jail
- Cop charges him with disorderly conduct
- The charges are dropped
- The President, a man of color himself, calls the unapologetic cop stupid
- 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.
