http://www.foxnews.com/opinion/2018...ace-winner.amp.html?__twitter_impression=true Unless it’s changed overnight, the motto of the Olympics, since 1894, has been “Faster, Higher, Stronger.” It appears the U.S. Olympic Committee would like to change that to “Darker, Gayer, Different.” If your goal is to win medals, that won’t work. A USOC official was quoted this week expressing pride (what else?) about taking the most diverse U.S. squad ever to the Winter Olympics. That was followed by a, frankly, embarrassing laundry list of how many African-Americans, Asians and openly gay athletes are on this year’s U.S. team. No sport that we are aware of awards points – or medals – for skin color or sexual orientation. For the current USOC, a dream team should look more like the general population. So, while uncomfortable, the question probably needs to be asked: were our Olympians selected because they’re the best at what they do, or because they’re the best publicity for our current obsession with having one each from Column A, B and C? I don’t think anyone should be chosen for something just because of their skin color or sexual orientation. But I’m not aware of any evidence that’s how this team was chosen. And saying the team should look more like the general population is a dog whistle. We all know what he means: should look more white. These people aren’t even subtle with their dog whistles anymore. Guess I shouldn’t be surprised Fox News would run sn opinion piece like this.
