Harvard’s Henry Louis Gates Jr. Donates Handcuffs To Smithsonian
Given the problems Harvard's Gates had with his charity back at the time of his arrest and the need for Harvard employees to file amended tax returns, should we just assume this is tax deductible? What a joke.
NEW YORK (AP) — Harvard professor Henry Louis Gates Jr. says he he's donated the handcuffs used on him during his arrest last year outside his home to the Smithsonian Institution's black history museum.
Gates says in Sunday's edition of The New York Times Magazine that he donated the handcuffs to the new National Museum of African American History and Culture.
Gates' arrest last July by police investigating a report of a possible break-in at his home near Harvard University sparked a national debate over racial profiling.
