Until.

We have a "The First African American Amputee" to compete in the Olympics.


My point being, no one ever said African or White man Amputee.

He was just the first Amputee.

But mark my words.

First black amputee will be "The First African American Amputee"

First off...he isn't "American"...so wouldn't be "African American"


Second, they mention that he is an amputee because he had to overcome unique adversity to accomplish what he did.

Like it or not, acknowledge it or not...Gabby, as an African American, had to overcome unique adversity to accomplish what she did. These include being part of a race that had been systematically held down in her for hundreds of years in her home country up until 50 years ago. And yes...the African American community is still trying to overcome disadvantages that came from that systematic suppression.

This event...this "first" for African Americans...just like Obama being the "first" African American President...is a SIGN that they are finally getting on equal footing with Caucasians in this country.

THAT is why it is celebrated...it isn't a celebration just for African Americans...it is a celebration for our entire Nation because we can say that we are making progress towards erasing the wrongs of our Nations past.



Unfortunately...some people don't want to celebrate that accomplishment...and no matter what justification is used...it is clear what their motive behind it is.

I was going to see if there were other people who got it into their minds that mentioning that Gabby was "African American" was wrong, outside of ATS.

Didn't find any of that though.

What I did find was another "controversy" surrounding Gabby.



It was mildly interesting, but easily discounted when you consider the facts.

I just thought it was interesting that there was so much perceived "controversy" surrounding her. Winning a gold at the Olympics does some weird things, it seems.

Out of curiosity I typed "Gabby Douglas Controversy" into google.

It seems as if her hair alone can cause a controversy. God, people are so picky.

You and other people here act like Gabby was born a slave.

She was not born 50 years ago.

She prolly never lived a hard day in her life.

She was born AFTER the damn Cosby Show came out.

She was born AFTER Windows 95!!!

People acting like they're out there in cotton fields.

You and other people are acting like African Americans don't still face unique adversity in this country.

You and other people think they should get over it already...they've had rights for 50 years...stop "being the victim"


You and other people think that THEY are the ones causing racism by celebrating their successes.

You and other people seem to have a huge issue with African Americans finally succeeding in areas that are historically dominated by Caucasians.


What do you suppose the reasons for that is???

Is she of African American decent? Was she the first of that decent to win a gymnastics gold?

I think you have more of a racial problem than she does.... Why?

Did I make this thread???

No.

Someone who couldn't stand that a milestone is being celebrated felt the need to cause controversy around it...and people like you back them up to steal the moment from Gabby and others that want to celebrate that our Nation is moving forward...people like you telling them not to celebrate their successes...people like you that want them to pretend that their history never happened...people like you who seem to wish we weren't moving forward by overcoming these milestones.

But right...I'm the one making people seem subhuman.

Ok then. Why don't we celebrate the fact that "African Americans" dominate Track &Field?

Oh, we don't.

Because that would be racist.

Black peeps destroy the rest of the world in the 100, the 400 and so on.

But we don't say "Jackson Blackguy" is the 20th African American to win the 400.

I thought we should "celebrate" black people victories?

Wow...you just don't get it.

It's too bad intelligence isn't something that can be gained through education....unfortunately we are stuck dealing with lower intelligence people forever...because they can never overcome that.

Who said anything is keeping me down???

I'm interested...what exactly do you think I feel is keeping me down...what assumptions are you making about me to come to that conclusion???

I hope some day you can stop feeling like you are the victim because others are finally gaining equality.
