Hey, Bryant Gumbel - Get Over It

Here's a recent comment on the Winter Olympics from Bryant Gumbel, speaking on HBO's Real Sports With Bryant Gumbel.

Try not to laugh when someone says these are the world’s greatest athletes, despite a paucity of blacks that makes the Winter Games look like a GOP convention.

Funny, I have watched several of this year's Olympic events, and the race of the athletes never entered my mind. Now, don't write a comment telling me that the reason race never entered my mind is because I'm white like most of the athletes.

If you tell me that's the reason I never noticed the race of the Winter Olympic athletes, I'll have to tell you that I have also watched several college basketball games this winter, and the race of those athletes never entered my mind either, at least not until I read Gumbel's comments about the Winter Olympic athletes.

I think, maybe, you have to be a racist if things like this bother you.

So many things come to mind here, but I'll simply leave it with a "Well said!"
