Its been less than a week and Ive 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 Erins story whatever it may be. She may be a girl but shes a girl born into white privilege. In other words, she didnt really do that by herself; somebody else did that for her.
Now thats not exactly the way Shani put it,
but thats 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 its Black History month!
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 cant get much worse than that none other than Jesse Jackson, the man who practically invented race baiting politics, jumped into the fray:
Because 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 Gabriels 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.

Shani, as they say in show biz, “Break a leg.”
Sorry Bro, you are an egotistical, racist ass.
I just had Implicit Bias training at work. The lesson learned was say nothing. To anyone. Ever. BTW, micro-aggressions aren’t just a joke.
Just another childish black racist. Didn’t get his way so the little snowflake cried racism.
Since he hates white people so much maybe the little racist should move his superior butt to Africa someplace.
Of course they have ruined the NFL and now the Olympics for millions of us.
The Democrat thrives on racism and sexism and would cease to exist if they dumped the mantra. They thrive by pitting one group of people against another.
The Democrat party thrives on HATE! Like some horrible monster in a sci-fi movie.
I’m betting the Olympics will never again allow an even number of people to vote on issues.
Also that all his racist BFF’s will agree with and support his actions.
Let it go, Bro.
Go out and win a gold medal for your country! It's not too late to do it in Black history month.
If a coin toss is good enough for the IOWA caucuses then it should be good enough for him. the fall out from all these racism/ sexism accusations are going to ruin this country. So sad.
When are these people gonna start acting like loyal Americans instead of Third World boogaloos?
I just do not care. I stopped any Olympics stuff many many years ago. I just do not care. They can take the “gay stuff” to Hades, I just do not care. I have many other wonderful things to do and watch.
jerkwad shani brings out the ass in asinine.
Sure, so he can use that platform to spew more of his crap? No thanks, I hope he loses bigly.
I saw a quote yesterday, from a Black actress (who I have never heard of) who was in a movie that I have never heard of......her quote was basically no nomination this year? I can wait for next year. I think that some Blacks think they should get accolades for everything they do.......no matter if someone else did it better. Yep, its THANKS OBAMA time.

White women always win coin tosses. Even ask Hillary.
Of course they're joke. But as with many other "jokes," perceived micro-aggressions will get you fired. Because they're completely subjective, based on what some ignorant, humorless booger-eating-moron perceives.
. . . and the Super Bowl, the Virginia state elections, and a whole slew of other things.
The guy has a chance to "rise above it" and move forward, or pout and throw a hissy fit.
He will probably be remembered more for his handling of this issue than any medals he wins or doesn't win.
Let's see where he chooses to put his energies.
“@TeamUSA dishonorably tossed a coin to decide its 2018 flag bearer,
A great example of not thinking prior to tweeting.
I bet he regrets this tweet and will for a long time.
But he will never admit it.
I’m not watching the LBGTQP Olympics.
More important things to do.
for instance, anything.
