Black Athlete Wins Gold, But Faces 1950's Style Segregation From U.S. Team Racism

The life of Shani Davis has never been easy. But against all odds this incredible Black athlete has won the gold medal for himself and the U.S. on Saturday. But no one from the American speed skating team has bothered to even offer a kind word or some sort of congratulations.

Instead Davis is facing 1950's style segregation and racism. He has felt so unwelcome that he trains in Canada, while the all White U.S. team trains in the U.S. Davis has to face racist scrawls on the bathroom walls as well as rude comments from the White team members after he won gold while the White team members failed.

It is very regrettable that most of America is extremely proud of Shani Davis, and consider him a great athlete and are inspired by his life story. It is unfortunate that the rest of the U.S. team still think that this is the 1950's segregated South and refuse to treat this great American with the due respect and dignity that he deserves.

Even on a Website for Mr. Davis, some racist comments are posted. This is simply outrageous.

I'm proud of Mr. Davis and consider him a great American no matter what some on the U.S. Olympic team may feel. He has brought great honor to the U.S. and deserves full respect due to any American citizen and equal treatment.
