62. LOL!!! A bit dishonest, aren't we?
Since I posted the entire quote several times already, it was clearly a setup question.

"I don't know, not having been there and not seeing all the facts, what role race played in that . But I think it's fair to say, number one, any of us would be pretty angry; number two, that the Cambridge police acted stupidly in arresting somebody when there was already proof that they were in their own home; and, number three, what I think we know separate and apart from this incident is that there's a long history in this country of African-Americans and Latinos being stopped by law enforcement disproportionately. That's just a fact."

Anyone being honest would see that he was referring to the role race played in the situation.
