“Bryant Gumbel, White Courtesy Phone”: Black Man Wins Gold, GOP Convention Canceled

Just a few days ago, the host of HBO’s “Real Sports” program, Bryant Gumbel, said in closing one program that the Winter Olympics had a “paucity of blacks that makes the Winter Games look like a GOP convention“.

One member of that “paucity”, named Shani Davis, just won the gold for the U.S. in the 1,000 meter speedskating competition.

Thankfully the medal wasn’t as a sweeper in the Curling competition, or else Gumbel would have accused the rest of the team of making a brother “do the custodial work”.
