(President Barack Obama, Professor Henry Louis Gates Jr. and Sergeant James Crowley walk from the Oval Office to the Rose Garden of the White House, July 30, 2009. Official White House Photo by Pete Souza)
The history of these three men is not so evident in this picture. Based on what we see above it seems that Crowley and Gates are friends and Crowley cares very much for Gates as an individual while Obama just leads the way figuring its beneath him to help. And yet, the history books show that Gates accused Crowley of being a racist and has never apologized (as far as we the public know)... and apparently Gates and Obama are friends?
I'm not seeing it...

I am stunned that the official White House Blog published this picture and that it is in the public domain. The body language is most revealing. Sergeant Crowley, the sole class act in this trio, helps the handicapped Professor Gates down the stairs, while Barack Obama, heedless of the infirmities of his friend and fellow victim of self-defined racial profiling, strides ahead on his own. So who is compassionate? And who is so self-involved and arrogant that he is oblivious?
