The Winter Olympics suck. The fact that the premier event is figure skating is pretty much all you need to know. And if there isn’t a white trash-pretty girl rivalry where one gets her knees bashed in by a hitman hired by the other, I just can’t get into it. The only thing the Winter Olympics are good for is hockey and speed skating. Then legendary speed skater Shani Davis did this after he lost a coin flip tiebreaker to luger Erin Hamlin for the right to carry the American flag at the Winter Olympic opening ceremonies:

Oh for fuck’s sake. Is there ANYTHING that isn’t racist these days? No one cares about medals you won at previous Olympics that we didn’t watch. You knew the rules going into it, you tied, and then you lost the coin flip. Naturally you decided to hashtag black history month because somehow a coin toss is now racist, and you automatically win all tiebreakers in the month of February on the account of your skin color.

Never mind the fact that the woman who beat you fair and square is a WOMAN. In the era of #MeToo. So if we’re gonna do identity politics, she’s winning, or at least tied. Seriously though, be a bigger bitch. You can’t.

Looking back at his Twitter this seems to be a theme. Like how he claims he’s always had to have his hands up:

Or how NBC is racist because they used pictures of three white athletes in their promo:

Uhhhh….it’s the Winter Olympics. Pretty much everyone is white or Asian. If you picked 3 people out of a hat from the USA, the odds are overwhelming that they would all be white. Statistics aren’t racist. But you kind of are.

Oh, and they will most definitely be highlighting black faces at the opening ceremonies. Like the Nigerian bobsled team. Ya know, because it’s not every day you see a Nigerian bobsled team.

Some have tried to defend him:

But yea, it’s just not working out. To assume that because Shani Davis is black that he “overcame discrimination” in a country where racial discrimination is against the law, kind of makes you a racist. Just sayin.

I’ll still root for him if it comes on in my living room though. Go USA!!

    Niggers and spics are on the news every night causing problems, they’re the source of almost all crime, all the pimps are niggers and spics, and even their culture is a bad influence…
    yet not only do we give a fuck what they think or say in the first place, we give them each their own month.
    What the blue fuck is wrong with modern white people?

    After 8 years of Obama destroying race relations in this country we are really at the point when an asshole can claim that a COINFLIP is racist. My god

    So what’s next? Is he going to call the ice racist if falling as it’s bright and ”white” looking?

    He will be boycotting visiting the White House. I would send him head first down the bobsled run without brakes. He will get the attention he craves.

    I can’t wait until this bullshit turns on it’s head, and the US votes in a hyper racist narcissist for President. Oh wait, what?

      You may want to read about Trump’s business practices. His African American employees LOVE him. Not a racist bone in his body.

    You didn’t get the whole story though. Not surprised… Institutional racism and all.

    You see… they used a US quarter. Everyone knows that George Washington was a big ole slave owner. That’s institutional racism. Racist to the core. That lil fuckin’ founding father, clenched his tails so tight that it disrupted the spin on the random chance generating disk and adversely affected the young brother. RACISM!

    Now, the should have used a penny. Honest Abe, the Great Emancipator, would have made sure that the toss was fair and just. And, by fair, I mean make sure the brother won.

    I’ll still be cheering for him, but only because he is representing the Stars & Stripes. 

    Sadly, his comment(s) mean that he’s been indoctrinated into the victim mentality. He has likely been fed the narrative of always being at a disadvantage in American society for a good part of his life. It’s what he’s been raised to believe, and any perceived slight only reinforces the narrative. 

    What is amazing about that is that, as an Olympic athlete, he doesn’t get the irony. 

    How many of us have been given the opportunity to focus on being the best of the best in a sport, yet HE’S a victim? I’m pretty sure that he’s not been a victim of anything but his own pride.

    Stupid racist quarters. Whats next, nickels, dimes? Then you know the pennies will jump on board because they’re the smallest and want to fit it. When will it stop?

      Pennies are copper, so they’re sort of brown, like our latino brothers. And as Nancy Pelosi told us this week, her grandson wants to have brown skin like Eduardo. So pennies can’t be racist because they have brown skin. Plus pennies are what everyone will be making as we continue to import poverty from the 3rd world of central america.

    Sorry, but I no longer will be rooting for Shani Davis because I openly discriminate against whiny assholes.

      I agree.

    I see his point. If he’s used to tie breakers always being settled a certain way than leaving it to a coin when one person is black and the other is white is downright unamerican these days.

    HA! Thats how it is now in our beguiled society… if you aren’t white and it didn’t go your way it MUST be racist… just like cities with higher black population arrests are inherently racist… has NOTHING to do with the white:black ratio in that city, or the actual offenses committed, its race simply because the minority didn’t get the extra benefit of doubt.

    I am not saying racism doesn’t exist or doesn’t happen, I know it does. But not everything is racism. I have many black friends, and I also work in a town with alot of the stereotypical black ‘gangstas’ in it … I see the dichotomy everyday. Do I look over my shoulder when walking during lunch? Yeah, I keep an eye on whats around me. Am I racist? No. There just happens to be more scumbags who will start shit because I am white, there is more robberies of persons, and in general their is a higher crime rate. Has nothing to do with race. I would be just as weary of a bunch of rednecks on a porch waving flags, or a group of Mexicans sitting in a low rider.

    Here’s a simple way to look at it, and maybe thats why it slips by so many people… If the stereotypical OG is a guy with a bandanna sideways and one pant leg up while his belt line is around his ass and he’s walking around in Jordans with a cigarette behind my ear.. and I see someone walking down the street that fits that bill, yes I am going to pay more attention to them since that is also stereotypically the kind of person who is going to punch me in the back of the head or try to rob me… they could be the best person in the world but when I don’t know them and they look like that then yeah, they have my attention. That goes for white folks walking around in wife beaters and ripped jeans, hispanics with a button up shirt only buttoned once, and so on… you don’t want to be judged? Don’t act the part. Be yourself, sure, but if yourself is being like that don’t be shocked when people judge you. And don’t play the race card.

      There is ONE Race that glorifies violence more than any other. That is fact. There is one race whose most popular musicians glorify violence that is fact. Fact if the matter is that what most people think of black people has nothing to do with Color and more about behavior and culture.

      You can quantify that by looking at black people too. If you saw will Smith’s gangsta Philly Character you walking on your side if the street you would cross to other side. If you saw Carlton Banks you would not
