I have to say that Mr. Henry Louis Gates doesn’t sound like a man who has any second thoughts. As the principals prepare for a beer on Thursday (ceptin’ HLG doesn’t drink beer), I’m wondering how awkward this is going to be.
Problem with ‘teaching’ moments when one of those involved is a teacher…well, I suspect one will be teaching and one is expected to listen. I’d love to be a fly on the wall for this one. But most lkely all we’ll get is the photo op moment – cameras clicking away, but no audio.
