Party Crashing in DC, Affirmative Action & Diddy

Barack Obama must throw some awesome parties in DC, considering how many people are crashing them. We all now know about the Salahis - the couple who epitomized white privilege - who were audacious enough to roll up in the State Dinner about a month ago without an invitation. Well, according reports this week, a third "party crasher" has been identified. And wouldn't you know it...he's black! Yep, that's him pictured above with General Patraeus. According to the Washington Post:
Another uninvited guest made it into the White House state dinner made famous by gate-crashers Tareq and Michaele Salahi, the Secret Service announced Monday -- exposing more holes in the security perimeter around President Obama. 

Unlike the Salahis, this newly revealed crasher got into the White House with the official Indian delegation. Many of the key details have not been officially released: the man's name, how he came to be with the group of diplomats and how close he got to the president and first lady. 

But a congressional source, who was granted anonymity to speak about the ongoing investigation into porous security at the White House, identified the man as Carlos Allen, a D.C. party promoter who runs an event space in Mount Pleasant. The source saw Allen's name in official e-mails and documents pertaining to the Secret Service probe. Allen, 39, did not respond Monday to repeated e-mails and phone messages. The Post spoke with him last month regarding a comment he made to a blogger about having attended the state dinner; in the brief exchange, he denied knowledge of anything to do with the dinner. 

The Secret Service released its statement following a report by Ronald Kessler, a journalist who writes for Kessler reported that the agency discovered the third crasher after examining surveillance video of arriving guests and found one tuxedoed man who did not match any name on the guest list. 
Just great! When I first heard that the latest party crasher was a party promoter. I swear before God and Freddie Jackson's shoulder pads I did 10 Hail Marys and wished it wasn't Diddy trying to relive some of his Howard University days up in the White Folks' House, running around screaming "Take dat, take dat, take dat!...It's Ciroc bitches!"

This is almost like the DC Sniper revelation all over again; and I'm really shocked. I mean we black people do some bold shit like sneaking into a movie theater and ruin everybody's movie experience with our loud talking and the occasional fired up blunt. Or going to court with one of our homies and telling the judge to fuck himself when we have warrants - true story, I know a guy who did this. And then there's the infamous mic snatch at award shows. But sneaking up into a friggin party where nobody knows Lil Wayne where the president of the United States is the host? That's some next level shit right there.

I gotta give him props on the way he did it though. Obviously he knew his color and saw it necessarily beneficial to walk up in the set with a delegation of Indian CEOs. Yep, I'm talking red dot and not feather as far as the crew he blended in with. Of course you know it was going to be a matter of time before somebody became curious about the Barry Bonds looking dude in a tuxedo as they did.And I guess that's why Carlos Allen chose not to stick around for the dinner and snag the coveted picture with Barack Obama.

It's yet to be seen just what will be done with this guy, and I doubt he has the balls like the Salahis to say kiss my ass to any federal subpoena from congress. Instead, he's running with the Shaggy "It Wasn't Me" line like every brother does after getting busted. The stupid thing is that Mr. Clean posted the above pic from the dinner on his Facebook page.  And from the looks of the photos on his page, he has a thing for posing with celebrities. Oh well, at the end of the day I guess we can score another win for Affirmative Action even if it involves party crashing and terrorism. Hopefully there is no talk of racial profiling at the next White House social event.
