This iReport is part of an assignment:
Racial profiling: Both sides
Will Dr. Gates haters defend Officer Barrett's racist comments too?
Video asks if people who condemned Gates actions will also condemn the racist comments of Officer Barrett who called Gates a banana eating jungle monkey. Post asserts that it's easy to support your own group and condemn the actions of others, but true dialogue occurs when we condemn the actions of members of our own group but frankly, America is just not ready to do that. Let's not try to disect his e-mail and find proof that the comments weren't racist. Stop drawing lines in the sand and cross the line.
