    I'm curious to know your answers. Multiple choice.

    My question should read:

    If Officer Crowley was (please chose), people would be reacting the same.

    if crowley was black, we would probably not have this bullshit discussion, because i think, from a afar, the prof. would not have had the opportunity nor inclination to whip out the race card.

    Doesn't matter what race Crowley was, my reaction would still be the same. He was doing his job and doing it well.

    If Crowley had been black, what would Gates actions have been? Pfff, we would never have even heard about it because Gates wouldn't have flown off the handle.

    If officer Crowley were any of those things he still would not have the right to abuse his power.
