In the likely case that you didn’t hear about it, one of CNN’s pet “African-American,” W. Kamau Bell really didn’t want Michael Phelps to hold the American flag during the 2016 Summer Olympics’ opening ceremonies because he’s a White Man and, hence, assumed to be nominally Christian. No, W. Kamau Bell nigh on demanded, though couched in positive and condescending language, that the honor go to the Muslim hajibi Negress, Ibtihaj Muhammad. According to Bell the last thing that America needs is another “tall, successful, rich white guys hogging the spotlight trying to make America great.”
As is almost always the case, neither merit nor the will of the people – Mr. Phelps was voted to carry our flag by his peers – matter to the ever angry, angsty, and covetous Blacks that infect our nation. With them it’s always “Step aside, Cracka!” in favor of a minority…because they’re a minority.
Fortunately, true justice was done and Michael Phelps didn’t bother to give Bell the handout of a response and did in fact carry our flag during the opening ceremonies.
A Few Follow On Points
Firstly, I’m glad that I could begin this post with, “in the likely case that you didn’t hear about it.” That shows that W. Kamau Bell’s racism, race-baiting, and general lack of worth didn’t make any traction in the world. Even CNN who gives Bell a paycheck did little or nothing more than allow him to publish his demands on their site.
Secondly, no commentsÂ that I know of were made by Ms. Muhammad, nor do I know much about her at all and, hence, have little to no opinion of her.
Thirdly, I too wish that Michael Phelps would have stepped down from the honor of being America’s flag bearer in favor of Ms. Muhammad, just not because she’s a flagrantly devout Muslim, a Black, and a woman. I wish he’d done so because she’s a fencer, specifically sabre, and they get little to no worldwide recognition or coverage. So, as a fellow fencer, also sabre, I think the symbolism of one of us being the flag bearer outweighs adding to Mr. Phelps’ accolades and honors. 😉
