The Third Uninvited Guest

Along with Tareq and Michaele Salahi, there was a third uninvited guest in the White House state dinner for India's prime minister - a negro named Carlos Allen, a D.C. party promoter. This dispels two popular myths in the black community: (1) That unlike white folks, there are some behavior black folks eschew; and (2) Black folks, especially black males, would be stopped immediately and detained - if not shot - for even contemplating such a stunt. I am not sure whether this is evidence of a post-racial America or simply gross incompetence on the part of the Secret Service. Nevertheless, Allen like the Salahis should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.
