photo_leelandorThe arrest of the Harvard scholar Henry Louis Gates Jr. on a disorderly conduct charge — later dropped — has prompted anguished discussion about race and policing in America, particularly after President Obama weighed in on (and later backed away from his remarks on) the episode.

The controversy’s ramifications have reached far beyond Cambridge, Mass., and Washington. On Monday, a young aide to a New York City politician resigned after posting comments on her Facebook page about the controversy.

The aide, Lee Landor, who had been the deputy press secretary to Manhattan Borough President Scott M. Stringer since May, posted comments on her Facebook page criticizing Mr. Gates and the president, whom she referred to at one point as “O-dumb-a.”

Ms. Landor wrote in one post, “O-dumb-a, the situation got ‘out of hand’ because Gates is a racist, not because the officer was DOING HIS JOB!”

In response to one Facebook user who voiced disagreement, Ms. Landor referred to Professor Gates using a vulgarity and added, “And racial profiling does exist, but for good reason. Take a look at this country’s jails: who makes up the majority of inmates? Exactly.”

In another Facebook post, Ms. Landor wrote, “You know what, I am really getting SICK of hearing about how white people are evil racists.” She added, “I get it — white men have dominated for hundreds of years and there’s a lot of anger there. But HOW MUCH MORE can the white people people do to correct past injustices of their ancestors?”

    This chick is a dummy. PERIOD.

    In one line she goes “…racial profiling does exist, but for good reason. Take a look at this country’s jails: who makes up the majority of inmates?” just like a garden variety paranoid Caucasian racist who really doesn’t (kind of sort of) think they are a racist, but would never say such a thing around Blacks, meaning she should know she is a racist. Confusing? Sure. So are retard racist morons. On the other hand she says HOW MUCH MORE can the white people people do to correct past injustices of their ancestors? WHAT? Didn’t this dummy just say jails are full of Blacks (basically) and that’s a grounds to be pulled over and stopped by police…just because someone is brown-skinned?

    Listen, if you are a retarded racist and no better than someone who curses due to lack of anything else to say, please go study your history and see what group of people and what Continent that mankind sprouted forth from. Everyone makes a contribution to the greater human kind. Whites have have your Jeffrey Dahmers and we have our John Muhammads. Rotten apples exist in all shapes genders and colors.

    GROW UP, moron.
