    Since he just got a taste of what some black high school drop has to go thru via a confrontation based on being 'mistaken' for a 'street' hustler also has to go thru 24/7...

    I. e., the white cop remained in control, the black scholar wasn't...

    So much for affirmative action programs, and merely integrating lily white colleges and universities, etc.

    FYI...

    P. S.

    Don't you be dissing my dad's home state, Gates!

    And that's where our extended family's homstead is too!!

    Seriously:

    As is true of all people?

    There are lightweights (Gates) and heavyweights (West)...

    We dare not make the mistake of blurring the distinction between the two...

    FYI...
