Double standard alert: U.S. distance runner Galen Rupp wins silver medal, media suddenly decide race isn’t important

When Gabby Douglas won the individual all-around gold medal a few nights ago, NBC sports anchor Bob Costas called attention to the 16-year-old’s race . So did virtually every media outlet:

Slate writer Aisha Harris penned an entire article (titled Why I’m Proud a Black Gymnast Won Olympic Gold ) about Douglas’ race:
Gabby Douglas has become the first black individual all-around gymnastics gold medalist in the Olympics, as well as just the fourth American woman to win the event. (The others: Mary Lou Retton, Carly Patterson, and Nastia Liukin.) I couldn’t be prouder. Sure, Jordyn Wieber, the reigning all-around world champion, came into the games with a lot of hype, but Gabby’s the only one I’ve really been paying attention to. I could say it’s because she’s an amazing athlete (she makes it all look so effortless, like Astaire in his dancing shoes) and that would be partially true. But a big reason why I’ve been cheering so hard for her is that the 16-year-old from Virginia looks like me, and that makes me incredibly happy.
I don’t usually throw my support blindly behind anyone of color, whether they’re athletes or politicians or business owners. In fact, I consciously avoid it since that can lead to ill-informed and naïve decisions. But seeing a young black girl perform such amazing feats in a sport where black faces are so rare has been nothing short of exhilarating, and it makes me throw aside my worries about having a racial bias towards a specific athlete.
Fast forward to last night. American distance runner Galen Rupp scored a silver medal — the first white male of any nationality to win a medal in the 10,000 meters since 1984 (28 years ago).
Twitter users (both black and white) noticed:



It really looks like Mo Farah is astonished that a white dude is right behind him. Galen means insane in Swedish.

Australian Sally Pearson is a white woman who won the 100 m hurdles tonight, that's probably a bit unusual as well. The males had that Chinese guy for a while who didn't do too bad (except for in this Olympics when he injured himself).


It's the faggot cuckold mentality of most of the media, let's be honest, the hyper-aesthenic, nasal Jews at ESPN (whose 'snarky', reflexively pro-Negrophile homo eroticism sets the tone for US sports coverage) probably need Viagra and visions of Usain Bolt fucking their JAP spouse to sport wood.

Are (modern) Greeks White?

No one south of Denmark is white. Easier that way.
