What most black people don’t know is that, the Olympiads are not as equal as they’ve been made to believe.
Think of it, how many medals have black people won while seated down? Of-course non! The only medals we’ve won is when running-away. I know you might be thinking that I’m playing White VS Black, but very wrong, because in Cuba with its minimal resources, they’ve performed well at the Olympics.
I found the London Olympics to be another hype-during Olympics, you would expect nations to unite both in the arena and outside, but hardly. I was fortunate enough to spend some quality time with the Angolan team for the duration of the entire games. But they all felt the hospitality offered to African sport women and men was superficial-no tour guides were provided to take them around. When not participating in games, they were locked away in their hostels-watching TV.
Think the way sports development is promoted in 3rd world countries by the so called development partner-its like Human rights-not all countries are equal. The reason you see Jamaica performing well, is because of what their development partners have put in place.
Most of the sport[s] that have won medal at the London games, in reality they’re more like exclusive clubs that still have a problem with black people.
I f you think I’m paranoid, try and check out the South African Olympiads..hardly a rainbow nation.. in fact, development partners rather pump money in cycling,boating and horse riding because they’re mostly white-friendly-eh, people want to seat down.
I was surprised that Namibia has fallen into the trap of promoting seated sportsmanship-Angola has a promising future
