Brant Gumble.?

Question:He said the Winter Olymipcs were bad because there are no blacks. Is he a racist?
If I said Basketball was bad because there were too many blacks, would I be a racist?


Where can i find pics of the olympic meadals?

First of all, his name is Bryant Gumbel and as I don't live in the US, I was not aware of his comments, but have found them on the listed website.

As to the crux of his comments:

"Count me among those who don't care about them and won't watch them. So try not to laugh when someone says these are the world's greatest athletes, despite a paucity of blacks that makes the Winter Games look like a GOP convention,"

That clearly means that he has not done any research at all. If he would have taken time to consult the start lists for this morning's Men's 15km Classical Cross Country Skiing Event, he would have noticed Phillip Kimely Boit representing Kenya, and as you can see from his online page on the Olympic website, he looks black to me.
