  •  yeah, actually the Gates story is what made me (5+ / 0-)

    remember this particular episode...

    I wasn't yelling at the cop, but I was most certainly taking an obnoxious stand and daring him to arrest me. I doubt that people could hear what was happening, but a couple of people stood there watching, so there was the same element of needing to make an example of me. I'm pretty sure from his expression that I did trigger his "contempt of cop" button. But he did nothing.  So, yes, being a middle age white woman was certainly an advantage over being an older black man who uses a cane.  Go figure...  

    What a sad, sad commentary on our times. Yeah, electing Barack Obama means we're a racial neutral society. Pffffttt!
