White House Beer Summit

Cambridge police officer Sgt. James Crowley sat across from Harvard professor Louis Gates in the Rose Garden at The White House yesterday with Obama and Biden and had their Beer Summit.

Officer Crowley told reporters, “I think what you had today was two gentlemen who agreed to disagree on a particular issue. I don’t think that we spent too much time dwelling on the past. We spent a lot of time discussing the future.”

Professor Gates added that he and Crowley had been cast together “through an accident of time and place” and must use the opportunity “to foster greater sympathy among the American public for the daily perils of policing on the one hand, and for the genuine fears of racial profiling on the other hand.”

Obama said it was a “friendly, thoughtful” conversation.

Obama had a Bud Light, Officer Crowley went with the Blue Moon and Professor Gates had a Sam Adams Light. Ol’ Joe Biden threw down with the nonalcoholic Buckler.

Alright folks – I’m opening this topic up to discussion and feedback – let’s start some positive dialogue.
