Iowa Rep. Steve King told Fox News that he’s doing a public service in accusing President Obama of favoring blacks over whites.

"I'm standing up against something that is or could become racism," King said Wednesday.

King told FoxNews.com that his comments alluded to a July 2009 incident in which a white police officer in Cambridge, Mass., arrested a black professor for disorderly conduct.

Obama first said Sgt. James Crowley acted "stupidly" when he apprehended Harvard Prof. Henry Louis Gates Jr. outside his home. Obama later said he did not intend to malign the police offer, but King claims his initial remarks showed a "built-in defense mechanism" that favors minorities.

King said Obama's first public statement on the incident "brought up race in the beginning" and "concluded with race." Obama has "a default mechanism that breaks down on the side of the minority,” he added.
