Race Was Never Mentioned………

Gates caller says she didn’t cite race

Not surprising that the Leftist media got it all wrong, concerning the caller who notified the Cambridge police of a possible break in at the Harvard professor’s home.

Yep, the Lefty media jumped on the racial band wagon, and “chose” to put words in her mouth in order to make it into a racial incident. Of course it would have been all right for her to do so, that is, to mention the race in order for a better recognition of the perps, but in this day and age of PC, even mentioning race …..is a racist act.

The woman whose report of a possible house break-in led to the arrest of Harvard professor Henry Louis Gates Jr. said she never mentioned race during her 911 call and is “personally devastated” by media accounts that suggest she placed the call because the men she observed on the porch were black, according to a lawyer acting as her spokeswoman.

The woman, identified in a police report on file in Cambridge District Court as 40-year-old Lucia Whalen, saw the backs of both men and did not know their race when she called 911, said Wendy J. Murphy, a Boston lawyer from New England School of Law. Whalen phoned police, Murphy said, because she was aware of recent break-ins in the area.

In an interview last night, Cambridge Police Commissioner Robert C. Haas said it was ac curate that Whalen did not mention race in her 911 call. He acknowledged that a police report of the incident did include a race reference. The report says Whalen observed “what appeared to be two black males with backpacks on the front porch” of a Ware Street home on July 16.

That reference is there, said Haas, because the police report is a summary. Its descriptions – like the race of the two men – were collected during the inquiry, not necessarily from the initial 911 call, he said.
