Mr. Gumbel - who evidently spends way too much time thinking about skin color - has shown himself again to be the ignorant racist he is by erroneously deriding the GOP for what he perceives as a "paucity of blacks."

Please contact HBO at http://www.hbo.com/apps/submitinfo/contactus/submit.do?title=Real%20Sports&questiontype=realsports to let them know what you think about this.

"despite a paucity of Blacks that makes the Winter Games look like my bedroom.”

When you factor in the summer Olympics, i.e. the U.S. track and field team, you get a pretty nice balance of races (not that it's important -- the best athletes should be there, regardless of race).

It's the European teams from the European countries that are so enlightened, so superior in every way to us (/sarcasm) where a black face is not to be seen (with the exception of a few on the GB team), whether it's winter or summer Olympics.

Yet we're the stone age people according to Gumbel - go figure.

Too bad for Gumby that the GOP leads in "First black appointed/elected to..." in just about every category!

Sounds as if Gumbo is ignorant!

A paucity of Blacks at the Winter Games?

Gee, weren't the ancient Greeks the first ones to field an all-Black Hockey team?

Three cheers for Antoine Federothopolos

Reminds me of the black congresswoman who complained of the lack of blacks in the volunteer Red Cross rescuing Katrina victims. Racist to the core.

Mr. Gumbel is a very little man ( in fact, barely a man). I remember the way he used to belittle a real man, Ronald W. Reagan, 40th President of the USA. Enough said!!

Hahahaha!

I once told to my black sister that when we went skiing, there were no black people.

She said, "Sis, we come from Africa. We don't do snow unless we have to." I laughed so hard!

Bryant needs to understand that black people do the Summer Olympics and dominate.

Gumbel is a "professional" racist. Show some respect.

You know, I did not loathe Gumbel when he stuck to sports. Looks like I'll have to detest the twerp all the time now.

I haven't noticed that the dominance of African-Americans in track and field in the Summer Games bothers Bryant. Why is he bothered by the fact Caucasians dominate winter sports? Race would appear to be the explanation.

Our Kind of People: Inside America's Black Upper Class
 
Scumball is mentioned in this book, he comes from a very elite social class of blacks.  Some remain humble while others like scumball become very arrogant thinking they are above others.

From Page 1 of the book: Bryant Gumbal is, but Bill Cosby isn't.
Lena Horne is, but Whitney Houston isn't.  Andrew Young is, but Jesse Jackson isn't.
And neither is Maya Angelou, Alice Walker, Clarence Thomas, or Quincy Jones.
And even though both of them try extremely hard, neither Diana Ross nor Robin Givens will ever be."
 
Bryant Scumball

I saw Gumbel playing at the Pebble Beach golf tournament years ago and he was looking real heavy. Just as he was readying to putt, he bent over to pick a leaf off the green and his butt looked the size of a movie screen. Someone from the back of the crowd yelled (very loudly) "What a Fat A$$". The entire crowd chuckled and Gumbel got this really pissed off look on his face. Of course, he missed the putt & he stormed off, with many people still laughing.

To this day, when I think of Bryant Gumbel, I think of this moment....and smile.

Why do you think the white man invented winter sports and swimming, so we can compete. Jeez, everyone knows the three-point line was just put in so white people can play basketball.

When I saw the rioters in Pakhistan trashing Starbucks and KFC, I saw so many anti-captalist, anti-American, poorly groomed jack-asses, I figured Howard Dean was back out campaigning and wanted to run for President again.

Bryant Gumbel's remark is racist and demeaning. Sports that dont require a ball are just as challenging and entaining as those that do.
