Rooted for a US Olympian to lose before but Shani Davis has led me to make an exception.

I hope he loses gloriously.

What a whining, sore loser, race baiting disgrace. Shouldn't even be there.

For those of you out of the loop:

The athletes vote for who gets to carry the opening flag were tied 4-4 so the committee flipped a coin to decide. It went to the other (white female) athlete. Shani then tweeted out that it was a "dishonorable coin toss" and implied that it should have been him but it wasn't because of racism by hashtagging #blackhistorymonth2018

You're right. And I did know that. Just a complete oversight. Thanks.
