Later today President Obama will sit down with Sgt. James Crowley and Henry Louis Gates Jr. for the most important beer in the history of mankind. But some people — members of a Baltimore Baptist church, for example, and an organization called "Pray at the Pump" — are none too happy with this turn of events, so they are demonstrating outside the White House.
Gosh, the conversation about race in America sure gets folks agitated.
But not as much as beer…
The demonstrators want the White House to serve lemonade instead.
Beer sends the "wrong message to our nation's youth who are becoming alcoholics at young ages," said Rocky Twyman, founder of Pray at the Pump, in a statement this morning. "Whether or not he likes it, President Obama is a role model for all the youth in America. His actions count."
I just hope these concerned citizens can also find the time to protest President Obama's driver's license, because if you ask me, children do not belong behind the wheel.
