Gabby Douglas with her well-earned gold medal
Bob Costas is in another controversy involving a black athlete, this time Gabby Douglas. Previously, Costas had badmouthed black sprinter Usain Bolt at the 2008 Olympics, over his showmanship. Apparently NBC likes taking digs at black athletes.
This has has been interpreted as a massive slur against Douglas. The term monkey is used as a racial slur for black people, which is foul. Immediately, people began complaining on Twitter about the incident, which forced NBC to apologize.

If that isn't enough, the ultra-liberal, illogical website, Salon, slammed Douglas, a minor, for being a Christian and thanking God for her win at the Olympics (Salon Writer Frets That Teen Gold Medalist Gabby Douglas 'So, So, So Into Jesus'). How disgusting and ungracious of Salon. Are you that hateful that you can't control it, even when it comes to a minor. I'm going to stop giving the Salon website any link referrals on my sites, as they keep pushing it further and further with each new offense.

It's ridiculous that some are behaving this way, rather than congratulating this fantastic young prodigy for her wonderful work in the world of gymnastics (not to mention adding to America's gold medal tally). God bless you Gabby and best wishes for the future in all your endeavors. You are beautiful.
