Professor Henry Louis Gates Jr.

Professor Henry Louis Gates Jr.

Police in Cambridge, Mass. responding to a call about “two black males” breaking into a home near Harvard University ended up arresting the owner of the house — Henry Louis Gates Jr., the nation’s pre-eminent black scholar.
Cambridge police say they responded to the well-maintained two-story home after a woman reported seeing “two black males with backpacks on the porch,” with one “wedging his shoulder into the door as if he was trying to force entry.”

It was Gates who was forcing his way through the front door because it was jammed, his lawyer told the Associated Press. Colleagues call the arrest last Thursday afternoon a clear case of racial profiling.

By the time police arrived, Gates was already inside. Police say he refused to come outside to speak with an officer, who told him he was investigating a report of a break-in.

“Why, because I’m a black man in America?” the Harvard professor said, according to a police report.
Gates — the director of Harvard’s W.E.B. Du Bois Institute for African and African American Research — initially refused to show the officer his identification, but then gave him a Harvard University ID card, according to police.

“Gates continued to yell at me, accusing me of racial bias and continued to tell me that I had not heard the last of him,” the officer wrote.

He was arrested on a disorderly conduct charge after police said he “exhibited loud and tumultuous behavior.” He was released later that day on his own recognizance. An arraignment was scheduled for Aug. 26. Police refused to comment on the arrest Monday.


Chris Brown

Chris Brown has posted a video to his website in which he pleads with fans to forgive him for the beating he handed former girlfriend Rihanna in February.

In the message, Brown says how sorry he is for the incident, and that he wanted to apologize earlier, but was unable to on the advice of his lawyer.

“Although I will do some interviews and answer some questions in the future, I felt it was time that you heard directly from me and that I am sorry,” he says.

“I wish I had the chance to live those few moments again. But, unfortunately, I can’t,” he says, referring to the altercation that left Rihanna with bruises and contusions on her face.

Sporting a red shirt, Brown says he can’t go into the specifics of the assault, but wants everyone to know that there is no excuse for his actions.




Variety is reporting that Sony Pictures is close to a deal for a feature film that would draw on the 80 hours of rehearsal footage filmed for concerts Michael Jackson was preparing to perform in London.

The studio is expected to pay north of $50 million for worldwide rights to AEG Entertainment, which owns the footage and shopped it to studios last week, as previously reported.

The film will feature at least three videos, including an alternative version of Jackson’s “Thriller,” which were shot to be interstitial programming during the London concerts. The footage was meant to play in 3-D, but it’s unclear as yet whether the feature film will present it that way.

“High School Musical” director Kenny Ortega, who shot the rehearsal footage, is expected to direct the feature, and sources said he’s already beginning to put together the footage so Sony can release the film before year’s end.

Ortega has the time, as he won’t begin directing the Paramount remake of “Footloose” until next March, when star Chace Crawford is on hiatus from “Gossip Girl.”

Several studios were impressed when shown the footage by AEG last week. Fox, Universal, Paramount and Relativity likely would have met AEG’s asking price but knew that Sony Pictures had clear first position because sibling company Sony Music Entertainment owns music publishing rights to Jackson’s songs.

AEG is also selling TV and video rights to the Aug. 29 tribute concert scheduled in London on Jackson’s birthday. Justin Timberlake, Janet Jackson and others will perform the song list that Jackson planned, accompanied by the band that rehearsed with the late singer, Variety reported.
