    The big issue here is NOT race-

    It is police over-reaction.

    The issue is Gates did not kiss the officer's ass and "show respect" -

    Which is not even close to being against the law.

    He was in his own home, meaning he was a threat to no one.

    THIS is the key that needs to be discussed- the idea that perhaps police need some restraint.
