The Pot Calling The Kettle Names.  
Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick was asked about the the arrest by a white Cambridge Police officer of Harvard University Professor and black man Henry Louis Gates for disorderly conduct as he tried to break into his own house. The Governor said it was "every black man's nightmare and a reality for many black men".

The Executive Director of the Massachusetts Association of Police, Jimmy Machado, responded that "it's shameful to play into the hate and the racial tensions that are out there in America."

Speaking of those racial tensions, what a wacky coincidence that a Harvard student named Seth Bannon just happened to take a picture of another Cambridge cop getting into his SUV - the one with the license plates reading "WHY TEE". And what a wacky coincidence that WHY TEE rhymes with WHITEY! Hahahahaha!

I suppose the officer's plate could be an existential question about golf.

But really, a cop playing golf? Why, that's even less likely than a black man living in a nice house in the Boston suburbs, isn't it?

I had the (dis)pleasure of waiting on Professor Gates about a year and a half ago. He was a dick to me.
