    I Love Being Black with Christopher Barrett
    I Love Being Black is saying congratulations to Jamaican swimmer Alia Atkinson who yesterday became the first black woman to win a world swimming title when she... out swam competition in the 100m breast stroke at the FINA World Swimming Championships in Doha, Qatar. It was also Jamaica’s first ever Gold at the Championships.
    Atkinson completed the short course race in 1 minute and 2.36 seconds, tying the world record, which according to FINA standards counts as its own record.
    She came from behind in the final length to beat defending champion Meilutyte by 0.1secs on Saturday.
    Alia was unaware of the significance of her 100m breaststroke triumph in Doha. She said: "Hopefully there will be more popularity, especially in Jamaica and the Caribbean and we'll see more of a rise and hopefully in the future we will see a push."

    This is good, because the last time blacks out did whites in this kind of venue, it was all kinds of comments, and innuendos of cheating.

    Peace!
