Interesting, I didn't know that being compete to banana eating monkeys is racist.

When Officer Justin Barrett says that he is actually not a racist, I can actually believe him.
In my view, with limited personal knowledge of him, it seems a very real possibility that this Officer was simply extremely upset with Professor Gates, and he was blowing off some steam as a result of such.
Here you have a Professor with "Friends in High Places", getting off scot free from having committed a crime,
and the LEO involved is being trashed by Leftists and certain Black Americans alike for simply performing the duties of his job.
Not to mention the fact that Professor Gates has forever, to a certain degree, tarnished the reputation and image of a respectable Law Enforcement Official, by hurtling baseless claims of racism at him.
I do find it ironically absurd that it somehow seems okay to label a certain race as "Racist" whenever the slightest argument takes place, and you can also spout some other seemingly vile and biased claims, YET, the minute that the targeted race answers back with a politically incorrect label, they themselves are demonized, lynched, and forever tarred with banishment from our Society.
This is NOT the same as some bigot simply dropping the "N Word", or the "C Word" through hate filled ignorance, but rather, it is a case of an ignorant and race baiting individual being given their own medicine in return per say.

Personally, I find it double hillarious.
First, that he called him a banana-eating jungle monkey (common, smile guys, it's funny)
Second, that he actually put it in an e-mail and mailed it to the Boston Globe and didn't do it anonymously.
So he gets double laughs for being funny, and a complete retard.
