Gumbel is such a racist!
What does the NBA look like?
Mr. Gumbel, your statement serves to create more hatred and distrust. Not witty, not funny.
Well, going by what Gumball said, half his bedroom looks like the gop.
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.
I have no use for the NBA, does that make us even-?!
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.
Does Gumbel think we need a “Chocolate Olympics?”
This is from 2006.......
“What does the NBA look like?”
The White House or an ACORN office.
Haiti comes to mind.
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.
what a rascist bigoted dink!...
This is yet another reason I don’t bother watching Olympics anymore....having to listen to this crap.
Die main stream media...just die already.
And there will be no Cool Running 2. Oh well.
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.
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.
And the NFL?
The Black Congressional Caucus.
His wife and her family look like a Republican convention too.
I guess that makes the Summer Olympics a Democrat Convention.
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?
That's where it's all headed anyway.
Wonder how the bitter has been likes appearing monthly on a cable premium channel with the ‘huge’ audience that implies.
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 Summer Olympics looks like:
A post office on the first of the month?
A Detroit street where Obama is handing out checks
from his stash.
Stupid Gumbel-and he is a mulattoe and married to a white chick. Boy, the nerve!
Well the reverse can be said: The lack of black males does not make it look like a jail house.
That guy gets away with being a racist pig. I can’t believe he still has a forum to make such comments!
Gumbel should be pleased that 100% of those killed in accidents at this Olympics were Caucasian.
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?
what does he say about the NFL and NBA?
We need a midnight luging program instead of a midnight basketball program.
What a dork.
“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!
Jamaican Bobsled team (must be Republicans)
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.
I’m trying to picture a luge with rims.
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.
Maybe blacks will have their own winter Olympics next time. They can hold it in Kenya.
Look what happens when a liberal sees a black man competing in politics.

However we aren't gonna enslave them on welfare plantations to get and keep them.
Wake up Gumball!..... You've been Tommed!
