Case in point the black speed skater who is throwing a hissy fit because it's Black History Month, and therefor he's entitled to be the flag bearer. It doesnt matter that the team voted for someone else.

And people wonder why Fox News is viewed as the home to un-informed racial and social nonsense.




Is there supposed to be something wrong with that??
The truth is now "social nonsense"??

Dude, stop. You're not even fooling yourself. If that was true why did he say this shit?

If your goal is to win medals, that won’t work,” he wrote.


Or this....

“No sport that we are aware of awards points – or medals – for skin color or sexual orientation.”


You don't have to defend garbage, just call it what it is. Even Fox News had the sense to realize it, why can't you?

Well if you could read you might recognize that he saying that the committee's priority is to put forward people in a diverse manner whether they win or not.

And since there is a finite number of minutes for promotion It's relatively simple to recognize that promoting the Muslim fencer who can't beat anybody is time taken away from promoting somebody who actually won

If the piece had an ounce of merit they wouldn't have taken it down. You wanna complain about who they put in front of the mic? There's your argument, hard stop. I hate the clown show that is the Olympics, it's a drama series, and they always have "heroes" and human interest pieces.

But he went on some rant about us hurting our chances to win medals based on literally nothing. That's why the article got taken down, because its a god awful poorly written piece that makes no fricking sense.

Truth be told I'm never very easily swayed by the even so and so says arguments

Point me to the Olympian who got in over his/her white/straight counterpart that he/she should've gotten in?


Couple of points.......The gays and darker folks might not be being selected on the team for being gay and or darker, but you’d be a liar if you didn’t admit they get far more attention from NBC and the MSM simply because of their diversity.

Blacks are better athletes than whites, and that is an undeniable, uncomfortable fact. As time goes on, they will take over sports they’ve traditionally not attempted because of access and affordability. This includes the winter sports, tennis, and gymnastics.

Boofoos have always done very well in figure skating. I admired Brian Boitano. Johnny Wier was an embarrassment. BTW: Greg Louganis is one of the greatest Olympians ever, and he had the good judgement to be discreet when he was competing. He is pretty swishy nowdays.

Which it isn't, that's the fricking problem. Nobody is misunderstanding what he's saying, its that he's just wrong and is making shite up.

Which has ZERO impact on who actually won/competed. One of us is missing the point of this piece, its not who you think.....
