I agree 100% Happy69..in fact no more than 10 minutes ago I posted a reply in the sports forum to one of our members who could not believe racism exist in these olympics and is being directed towards Team USA:
The ascension of the white female
My view of the overall olympic coverage by the american media is that the 'political' objective this year is the ascension of the white female. Dont take my word for it, just watch the endorsements/commercials over the next year.
I think that both of you may be right on this one.
I just wish that We can see this. All the lessons that need to be learned are already out there...
Interesting. Driving in to work this morning listening to the news on radio, it was reported that the American media deliberately focused its attention on two Olympic sports during the entire event -- gymnastics and swimming. Need I say more?
The great college football coach Eddie Robinson (Grambling) said that the 1st time he heard a black man called an American was when Jesse Owens was running in the 1936 Olympics, and when Joe Louis fought Max Schmeling (spelling) in 1938. White America will support a Black athlete wearing the red, white, and blue....so long as he wins and doesn't create controversy. If they lose however, you will thing that person committed a crime, because they will be burned alive in the media (which is happening to the men's basketball team).
