“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
