The other day the local news excitedly announced that Utica, New York native Erin Hamlin would be the flag-bearer during the opening ceremony of the Winter Olympics.
It wasn’t until I saw the national news that I learned her winning the honor over Shani Davis after a tie-breaking coin toss was the latest example of racism in America.
The pouty Speed-skater and apparent gold medalist in the Victimhood Olympics decried the “dishonorable” way Hamlin won out over him.
Coin tosses being infused as they are with White Privilege.
He took to Twitter to complain. And when people began retweeting his griping tweet to point out the absurdity of it, Davis set his Twitter account to private.
And that could have been the end of it. But Shani just wouldn’t let it go. Instead, he boycott the opening ceremony in a snit.
Twelve-year-old gymnasts have more maturity than this guy.
Remember when people were self-aware enough to save their childish tantrums for when nobody was around to watch them?
Well, those days are gone.
Now behaving like a petulant child who doesn’t get his way is something grown adults have no problem doing before an international audience.
The truth is the Victim Culture that destroyed our colleges and universities has escaped the confines of campus and is ruining every aspect of American life.
Shani Davis’ shameful behavior is proof that the Victim Culture has made it to the Olympics.
Sportsmanship, respect, the love of competing, losing honorably – Shani Davis has jettisoned all of that in favor of playing the victim.
All because he lost a coin toss.
That’s not how an athlete should behave. It’s disgraceful and infantile.
And frankly, if I were in charge of the US Olympic Team, I would send his ass home.
