I WAS WRONG!!!!
My perception wasthat Shani Davis had been asked to do somthing that might have curbed his "edge", and might have resulted in him being "just another speed skater" at the Winter Olympics.
Was I ever WRONG!
Ths article came out today:
Lost in all the attention that Chicago-born Olympic speedskater Shani Davis has been getting this week is a little-known fact: The gold- and silver-medal winner is a plaintiff in a lawsuit against his native city.The suit could go to trial this year, predicts an official with the American Civil Liberties Union of Illinois. In March 2003, Davis and two brothersâ€”Quincy and Damien Joynerâ€”sued the city of Chicago and former police Supt. Terry Hillard, alleging they were the victims of illegal stops and searches by police."The case challenges indiscriminate street stops of young men," said Harvey Grossman, legal director for the ACLU of Illinois.Grossman said he expects the case to be tried this year.Chicago police officials did not return a message today seeking comment on the lawsuit.
My take on this now is that this guy has spent years training to prove that he is better than any White Guy. Also, he is a traitor, using the ACLU to try to get respect awarded from some court. He hasn't learned the lesson: Respect is Earned, not awarded, appointed, bought, or begged.
My view on the ACLU is contained in the article at this link:
