 PRESIDENT OBAMA ENJOYING A POST-RACIAL BEER

It has been almost a week since President Obama accidentally stepped into controversy by mentioning the Skip Gates arrest at his press conference and he is still having to address the issue. At the time, President Obama said that Cambridge police acted “stupidly” by arresting his friend, Harvard professor Skip Gates. Gates was arrested in his own home even after identifying himself to police. The Cambridge police were called to the Gates home after a 911 call by a neighbor who suspected a possible burglary.

The arrest of Gates, who is black, has raised issues of racial profiling. President Obama has since backed off his original comments. He has invited Gates and Police Sgt. James Crowley, the officer who arrested him, to the White House this week. The three will apparently get together to share a beer.

The move is being called “beer diplomacy.” Presidential spokesman Robert Gibbs said Monday that the President drank a Budweiser at this month’s Major League Baseball All-Star Game and would probably repeat his choice at this week’s beer summit. Crowley apparently put in an order for a Blue Moon, which is brewed by Molson/Coors. Both of those choices are okay, since the White House only stocks American beer. Gates, however, may be in trouble. Gates told the Boston Globe that he prefers Red Stripe and Beck’s. Both of those choices are foreign beers. Red Stripe is brewed in Jamaica, Beck’s in Germany.
