I just can't take it

Bryant Gumbel on the Winter Olympics: 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.

Because, you know, they would only be the world greatest athletes if they were all (or mostly) black. So, what does have to say about the NBA, or the ranks of college basketball? Those must be the greatest athletes, because obviously teh collective hue is dark enough for Gumbel.

Really, though - I think we should try to get Sharpton and Jesse and Gumbel to encourage their brothers take up cross-country skiing. Or, speed skating. THE WINTER GAMES SHALL SET YOU FREE.
