Lip Schtick's virtual ass kicking - round 2

First it was Pat Robertson.

Now it's Bryant Gumbel. What a racist asshole.

Per Gumbel:
"Finally, tonight, the Winter Games. Count me among those who don't like them and won't watch them ... Because they're so trying, maybe over the next three weeks we should all try too. Like, try not to be incredulous when someone attempts to link these games to those of the ancient Greeks who never heard of skating or skiing. So 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. Try not to point out that something's not really a sport if a pseudo-athlete waits in what's called a kiss-and-cry area, while some panel of subjective judges decides who won ... So if only to hasten the arrival of the day they're done, when we can move on to March Madness - for God's sake, let the games begin."

Shut up, Gumbel.

1 - The ancient Greeks may not have skated or skied, but I'm pretty sure that they would have been happy that the Olympics have moved with the times in order to remain one of the greatest sporting events the world will ever know.

2 - Do not call a skater a pseudo-athlete just because someone (and I bet it was a member of the media) decided to coin the term for the scoring waiting room the "kiss and cry area." I'd like to see your sorry ass do a quadruple lutz.

3 - Your words regarding the paucity (by the way, for those who are not pompous asses, the word paucity means "an insufficient quantity") would hold a lot more water if blacks weren't allowed to participate in the Olympic winter games. As far as I know, there are no rules keeping blacks out.

Furthermore, your comments lead readers to believe that if blacks did participate, they would be superior to other athletes competing. That's just plain elitist, not to mention racist.

Did you ever stop to think that a large number of blacks just may not be interested in participating in these types of sports?

After all, according to Charles Barkley (during his appearance on the David Letterman show last week), "you know, brothas don't like the ice."

By the way, Bryant frigging Gumbel, I wonder what your white wife thinks about all this?

Where on earth did Bryant spew this stuff anyway? I mean, who is still LISTENING to him??

And I have no idea why he's trying to speak for US anyway. We kicked him out of the club a LOOOO-OO-OOONG time ago.
