Snow Leopard

“Black people dominate sports in the United States – 20 percent of the population and 90 percent of the Final Four.  We own this shit.  Basketball, baseball, football, golf, tennis, and as soon as they make a heated hockey rink we’ll take that shit too.”

– Chris Rock

And to think, a lot of Black comedians used to ‘imagine’ there being a Black president. Cullen Jones won Gold for team USA at the 2008 Beijing Olympics (despite the fact that Black people can’t swim….*blank stare*), and there I saw this on CNN and I had to smile.

Born in Glasgow, but raised in Ghana – Kwame Nkrumah-Acheampong (aka The Snow Leopard) is Ghana’s first professional skier who’s also qualified for the Winter Olympics in Vancouver this year!

Does this mean that a bunch of Black people will start flocking to the slopes like they did when Tiger Woods started playing golf?!

Thank You and goodnight x
