Well, he is no fan of the winter olympics, and I must say I am no fan of football or basketball, so touche. To each his own.

Mr. Gumbel, your statement serves to create more hatred and distrust. Not witty, not funny.

Maybe blacks need to step it up Bryant. Hiring them to meet some sort of ratio or meet some achievement gap is unconstitutional.....oh wait, we’re doing that now with jobs.

Self selection. No one is keeping blacks off the slopes or out of the GOP.

So Blacks are better at different kinds of sports than Whites. Where does he think skin colors “originated” anyway? Sheep dip.

Yep, it’s Whitey’s fault that blacks don’t like the cold. Maybe we should give them money to compensate for that.

He is a racists. There is no rule blacks can’t do this. Where is that written? But the games are fraught with subjective judgment of sit spins and jumps and I hate them too. Don’t do “sports” where a bunch of ambiguous subjective judging is done. Do finish line or best time events only. When they killed the kid from Georgia with criminal negligent design —I just turned it off.

So it looks like a gathering of people who base their beliefs and actions on evidence and reality? In a sense that is true because the stopwatch doesn’t lie and good intentions won’t bring you success. But isn’t he insulting blacks by implying that they as a group make their decisions based upon on emotion and hope? He should apologize.

Gumbel's squeeze is white. And he must have missed all of those South Korean speed skaters, a black American who is favored to win several gold medals, and Japanese ski jumpers. Gumbel and the rest of his ilk see everything through the prisim of race.

There are no racial barriers to Americans wishing to participate in winter sports. I guess the rejoinder is that going to an NBA game is like going to Harlem.

Blacks refuse as a group to do anything “white” then cry “racist” towards any organization or event without whatever level of black partipation they think will do the most political damage. This is just one of many instances of playing the race card that has just about run its course.

I for one am sick of it. It has nothing to do with race, blood, demograhpics, skin color or anything like that. It has to do with corrupt political practices, verbal thuggery and phony victim mentality.

They can go shove their race card where the sun don’t shine. And that includes the WHITE liberals who use the same unfair and unfounded accusations to bully their opponents. Screw ‘em.

Dear Bryant: apparently, they didn’t make the cut based upon honest competition. There is no guarantee of equal outsomes in sports or didn’t you know that. BTW where’s your call for more white guys in boxing and pro basketball you hypocritical POS?

So Gumbel goes on record as being both a racist *and* a bigot. If he was white and had made a similar comment relating to the shorter track distances and basketball, he would have been fired and he probably should have been whatever his melanin content.

Well, Sports in Winter Olympics originated in Northern and Western Europe. When I go skiing, I only see white people. Simply put, Majority of American Blacks live in the South. So how and where do they find the time to participate in winter sports?

“South Korean speed skaters”

Asians and Jews don’t count for racial goodie points. In fact, in college affirmative action, Asians and Jews are far more discriminated against than whites.

There is nothing keeping blacks out of winter sports except their own lack of interest. Remember the Jamaican bobsled team? I don’t know anyone who was not rooting for them to make a good showing. Overcoming adversity trumps color every time!

But Asians do qualify for state and federal affirmative action programs and minority business set asides.

For example, the Virginia Department of Minority Business defines a minority individual as “an individual who is a citizen of the United States or a non-citizen who is in full compliance with United States immigration law and who satisfies one or more of the following definitions:”

1. “African American” means a person having origins in any of the original peoples of Africa and who is regarded as such by the community of which this person claims to be a part.

2. “Asian American” means a person having origins in any of the original peoples of the Far East, Southeast Asia, the Indian subcontinent, or the Pacific Islands, including but not limited to Japan, China, Vietnam, Samoa, Laos, Cambodia, Taiwan, Northern Mariana, the Philippines, a U.S. territory of the Pacific, India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, or Sri Lanka and who is regarded as such by the community of which this person claims to be a part.

3. “Hispanic American” means a person having origins in any of the Spanish-speaking peoples of Mexico, South or Central America, or the Caribbean Islands or other Spanish or Portuguese cultures and who is regarded as such by the community of which this person claims to be a part.

The Republicans need to expose the Democrats as the real racists and bigots who provide people, including newly arrived immigrants, with special rights and privileges based on race, ethnicity, and gender. The definitions of Hispanic and Asian under Virginia law are ludicrous. They make no sense. What do Japanese, Chinese, Indians, and Filipinos have in common except being from the same geographic region of the globe? Similarly, “Hispanics” encompass all of Latin America and the Iberian Peninsula, i.e., the former colonialists. These types of classifications are reminiscent of those under apartheid in South Africa, which had four main groups with a number of sub-groups and even “honorary whites.” Republicans should take the lead in abolishing these discriminatory programs in post-racial America and use immigration as an example of the unfairness of these laws.

Isn’t this the guy who, when his mother was asked about him, said “everyone makes mistakes”? (Meaning having given birth to this creep was not anything she was proud of.)

I’m sure Gumbo must be a buddy of Zero’s.

If there were blacks competing Gumbel would not be lamenting the absence of black competitors he'd be lambasting the black competitors as Oreo cookies and traitors to the black race. I bet.

Look what happens when a liberal sees a black man competing in politics.
