Cambridge, MA - A lady of Pork And Cheese descent, the caller who dialed 911 on that uppity Harvard professor, Henry Gates, is claiming the Pigs are lying when they say she identified Professor Gates as a black dude.
Ms. Whelan, the caller, says that at no time did she describe the persons she saw breaking into the professor's house as 'black'. "I never called them black," said Ms. Whelan. "You can look at the transcripts."
So far the official response from the Pigs regarding the arrest is that Henry Gates was acting all uppity and deserved a little detention time down at the pokey. Indeed, Professor Gates did find himself interred at the local hoosegow for a period of four hours.
When the Pigs began to question Mr. Gates, the professor has been quoted as saying, "Yo Mama" and he was subsequently arrested by the Pig that got offended. In his defence, Henry Gates said that his statement was misheard and in fact he had said, "Yo-Yo-Ma," referring to a pair of tickets to the concert of a famed violinist with that name; tickets that had fallen out when Gates had reached for his drivers license.
"The fact of the matter is, even if the police had accepted my explanation and had heard 'Yo-Yo-Ma' they probably would have charged me with trying to bribe them with concert tickets. You know how these Pigs are."
