There has been a lot said and lessons have been learned about the Harvard professor getting himself arrested. We have learned mostly aboput the man who is our president. He showed himself to be judgemental when he called the actions of Sgt Crowley stupid.
The photograph of him being oblivious to the handicapped man shows a lack of concideration. While Crowley helps Professor Gates, the man that he doesn't see eye to eye with, down the stairs.
A picture is worth a thousand words, I think this image says a lot about character. The American Thinker has more to say.
