Bryant Gumbel on blacks in the Olympics

Bryant Gumbel made a fool of himself the other day with these comments:

Try not to laugh when someone says these are the world's greatest athletes, despite a paucity of blacks that makes the games look like a GOP convention.

Uh, Bryant, Jamaica regularly sends a bobsled team to the Olympics. An all-black group of bobsledders. I learned the Jamaicans take a lot of pride in that team, and they're damn good athletes, too. Good enough to give you a thorough thrashing, Bryant.

And Bryant, there is a Jamaican Bobsled Cafe you can visit in Montego Bay, if you'd like to learn more
