Prof Louis Gates arrested???? E. Lynn Harris… and dirty ol’ man

The fact that both President Obama and Govenor Deval Patrick agree…that the arrest stemmed from racism…speaks to the history of Boston itself.  Long known as one of he most racist places north of  Mason/Dixon Line… the Boston/Cambridge history of  its treatment to blacks…or African Americans…speaks for itself.

This booking photo released by the Cambridge, Mass., Police Dept., shows Harvard scholar Henry Louis Gates, Jr.One need not go any further than to the rampant and rapid kicking-in of black folk’s doors years ago when a white male claimed he and his wife had been robbed…in which the man’s wife was killed.   Upon this report the Boston Police Department  immediately commenced to begin storming the homes and apartments of  black people all across the Boston Area.  

Only to find out a few days later that the man had lied…he had killed his own wife and staged what looked like a  robbery…along with his brother.   And yet…the Boston Police Department refused to apologize to the African American community for what it had done.   And on top of  it kept a couple black men in jail…whom they had arrested trying to force them to confess… even though the Boston Police Department found out that they had had nothing to do with murder/robbery.

So, yeah…when the police officer approached Dr. Gates at the entrance of his home…and he was asked to step outside of his home knowing that he had done nothing wrong…outside of  being the wrong the color… Dr. Gates informed the officer that he entering his own property.  While the police were storming his area seeking  some  burglar.

So, yeah…he refused.    He had showed them his license…it bared his address upon it. 

Well aware of the history of the Boston Police Departmen and their tactics…why should he open himself up to them…and particularly with a nasty police officer…who commensed to call him names. 

Then of  course…Dr. Gates being a renown lecturer and man of  letters, teaching at the famed Harvard University for years…why should he be forced into such a investigation or be interrogated after he has already proved that he lived on the property he was entering into?  

He had done nothing wrong…he was  his house…he was minding his own business.   But he was a black man…in a neighborhood  of Cambridge…

The question would have to be ask….

“Why would a bunch of  white police officers go to the home of  a  prominant African American professor, who has been all over television on various talk shows…well known and respected in the Boston area…as well as through the nation…and has been on all kind of talk shows  talking about blacks and our history in America…to question him?

Maybe because all black folks still look alike…least ways to them.

Why would they go to his house…asking him to step outside?

If you have ever been arrested then you know…the police begin by telling you to do one thing…and the next thing you know  they are telling you is-

“Put your hands behind your back.”

And you find yourself  lost wondering….what is….what is going on?

Having gone to school in Boston…I am sure that the ugly face of racism reared its ugly head more than once or twice…for both Obama and Patrick Deval.  It is hard to forget.

And what gives the right to the Boston Police Department to demand anything of the President of the United States?

Talking about they want an apology from the President…for calling them  ‘racist.’

Why don’t they first apologize to the black folks that they have been terrorizing for years…and for kicking in their doors?

And the real problem…with them…the Boston Police Chief etc… in seeking an apology from Obama…is that they don’t see Obama as ‘The President’ of this country…but just as another black n……  And I hate to say that…but it is true.

It is the way Boston is…and has always been.

I was on the campus with a bunch of white students who felt the exact same way following Obama being elected as President of  this country.  They said that…Americans didn’t really vote for Obama as President…but Biden.   To think that people with that kind of  warped  mind-set will be the future leaders, policy makers and business people of  this country is sad.

I don’t know where I have been…though I have never read any of his books…I did know of him.   But to read that E. Lynn Harris died…I am truly surprised.

I just happened to come across the above obituary while looking up some more information on E. Lynn Harris.

I never heard of  her…but we are all very familiar with her work.  It is amazing how some people go through life  just below all the lights…yet  have such a hand in the making of  others.  Judi Ann Mason was such a person.  Recognized for her talent as a writer the famed TV producer Norman Lear hired her fresh out of  college to write “Good Times” starring Jimmie Walker, Esther Rolle, John Amos etc…etc..   Her works also included scripts for “Stanford & Son,” “A Different World,”  and the PBS drama “I’ll Fly Away,” which was a fantastic show that I truly loved.

Like E. Lynn Harris, she was also 54 years old.

It seems that so many known people are dying all at once. 

I just read where Walter Cronkite just passed as well.   Who can forget him as the evening anchor of the CBS news.  He was 92 years old.

What kind of  preacher was this?    ( I’m talking about the ABOVE LINK)

He married a 8 year old girl?????

He takes children across state lines and marries them off???

What kind of  parents did she have? 

And they need to go to  jail along with preacher.   My Lord….

He was just a dirty ol’ man who called himself  a  preacher.  He wasn’t  no preacher.  Yeah…and I meant it just like I said it….he was not ‘no’ preacher.

I really get tired of these people who parade around pretending to be godly…and have nothing in them at all which comes close. 

What a terrible thing to do to a little child.   And that someone would do so in the name of the Lord is even worst.

These kind of stories just make me sick.   And angry.

It would seem that for the years that they have been after this guy…the whole mess and him would have been done with already.  I do not see why it is so hard to those under the law to get these guys and put them away?   For ever.

2ab-the-bishop-wifecoverWell, what can I say…except every chance I get I have to plug my book, THE BISHOP’S WIFE.    Yes…I am guilty.   But when you read my book you will know why.   Soon and very soon…   It  is coming.4_printer_Promo_Cars_b_smith2
