As far as I'm concerned, Gumbel can say whatever he wants. More power to him.

But what would Gumbel's reaction be if someone made a similar, but opposite point about the NBA? I think the question answers itself.


How could someone make an opposite point about the NBA?
Wouldnt the opposite point be "the best athletes in the world arent in the NBA because there arent any white people"

First of all, thats not true there are plenty of white people in the NBA. I dont think its an accurate analogy.

I just think what he said was funny and to some degree kinda accurate. Dont worry though, you all still control the world. Bryant Gumbel making a comment itsnt going to change all that.. relax Mr. Limbaugh.

Yes, I'm just like Rush Limbaugh. Exactly.

As I just said, he can say whatever he wants. I'm not objecting. But if somebody said, "I can't watch the NBA. It looks like an NAACP Convention," wouldn't he take some heat.

I think there is a subtantial difference between a politcal party, and a caucus whose soul purpose is to advance the interests of an ethnic group.

ETA: Unless your trying to claim that the GOP is like the NAACP for white people, in which case I'd agree.

His point was that (1) the Winter Olympics is too white / not black enough, which makes him not want to watch, and (2) the GOP, like the Winter Olympics, is all about whitey.

My point was that, if someone said: (1) the NBA is too black / not white enough, which makes him not want to watch, and (2) the (insert name of whatever predominantly black organization you want - which one is beside the point), like the NBA, is dominated by blacks. If someone said that, they would be taking a lot of heat from the MSM.

That is because there isnt a long history of discrimination and bigotry directed toward white people in this country.

Ok, so we're in agreement about the double-standard. Ok, good.

I live by the double standard every day. I would never claim that there isnt one... but while I get to make the occasional whitey joke, I also dont get the privledge of not being harrased on my way to law school functions i have been invited to by security at restaraunts.

All I'm saying is - both double-standards are wrong.

Doesn't the very existence of the double standard mean that we have not reached equality? And if so, wouldn't that mean that both "sides" need to make concessions [i.e. give up their part of the double standard] in order to have progress?

I didn't have a problem with her so much as Bode. She was just trying to make a buck, he was being a dick about it.

Let me ask the question to anyone who might know. Have the Olympics ALWAYS been geared towards women? Or is that just recently? They are unwatchable, in my opinion.

P.S. Magnum is still a rich, spoiled C-C-C-C-C-C-unt
