If Everything’s Racist Say “Thank You Obama!”

It’s been less than a week and I’ve already found something else the SJWs have ruined: the Olympics.

It seems there was a bit of a kerfuffle over who would carry the flag for Team USA in the opening ceremony. The honor is determined by a vote of the the eight American winter sports federations that participate in the Olympics. This year their vote split 4-4 for Erin Hamlin (female, white) and Shani Davis (male, black). In the event of a tie the US Olympic committee has previously established a procedure whereby the designated flag bearer is determined by the flip of a coin, generally considered a fair and unbiased way to settle such things. Hamlin won the toss, end of story, right?

Wrong, not if the loser is a black male who thinks his story - growing up on the streets of Chicago and dealing with the teasing of his friends to train as a competitive speed skater to become the first African-American to make the U.S. speedskating team and the first black Winter Olympian to win an individual Winter Olympic gold medal (Turin,  2006) - is better than Erin’s story – whatever it may be. She may be a girl but she’s a girl born into white privilege. In other words, she didn’t really do that by herself; somebody else did that for her.

Now that’s not exactly the way Shani put it,


but that’s exactly what he meant. He thought he deserved the honor more than Erin because of his skin color and the story it bears. To not recognize that is “dishonorable.” Oh, and it’s Black History month!

racist coin toss

In order to register his objections to the unfairness of this coin toss decision he skipped the opening ceremony altogether, saying he never intended to attend any way as it conflicted with this training schedule. So either he intended to show up simply to carry the flag and then go home to bed or the whole thing is a moot point.

And just when you think it can’t get much worse than that none other than Jesse Jackson, the man who practically invented race baiting politics, jumped into the fray:

jesse jacksonBecause coin tossing is racist. Or something.

The old SJW is accustomed  to organizations and corporations saying “how high” when he calls for them to jump so I suspect Team USA will immediately revise this racist coin toss policy. Never again will a black man suffer a humiliating loss to a white girl, be forced to issue an angry tweet, skip the opening ceremony and scream “racist!” from afar into a packed arena.

“To paraphrase Jon Gabriel’s classic tweet about the Obama era, my favorite part about the Olympics is all the racial healing.” Ed Driscoll

Next time instead of using a coin to settle the tie, they will use a card.
