Funny you threaded this story.

I made a comment about Gabby's roastbeef curtains a few days ago, and it got pulled.

The post that is.

After Bob Costas paid tribute to Gabby Douglas's gold-medal glory, saying, "But there's some young African-American girls out there who tonight are saying to themselves, 'I’d like to try that too,'" they immediately went to an ad featuring a monkey doing gymnastics.
oh wow

Why even make the comment about "young black girls doing gymnastics"?

We all get it, she's black and winning golds in gymnastics. So the frick what? Can't she be just another person without Costas making the patented "black person doing something that is not expected" comment.

When can we get past that crap?

Edit: BTW, I do love that monkey doing gymnastics commercial.

Exactly!

However, it is neat how well spoken she is. What a great representative of her people.

Just had that conversation with my coworkers...there's no need to even say that in the first place. Sorry, Dominique Dawes, but you didn't inspire any black kids to do gymnastics because you didn't win the gold.

ETA: I don't have a problem with saying she's the first black girl to win individual gold, because that is news-worthy and I get the significance of that. But just make note of it and move along, Costas.
