    Thumbs down Racist Comments are unecessary!

    Excuse me but I would like to know why its necessary that everyone needs to know that he's a negro? For that matter why does it matter at all if they know his ethnic background? I read through all of these skaters and I never saw anything like oh he's white or anything like that . Which leads to my next point why does everyone need to know distinctly only this boys ethnic background and no one else's? Theirs no need to know ethnic backgrounds this thread was designed to give people insight who could not attend the event on what the skaters did. Not to let everyone know distinctly what one persons ethnic background is! So... next time your posting information about skaters I do hope that you leave the unecessary racist comments out!!!

    Right on! After I read the posting, (which was a really positive evaluation!!) I saw Shaq and his mom at the competition and mentioned it. They just shrugged their shoulders . None of the other black skaters were referred to by colour. I think the comment must have been made by mistake as the poster was scribbling notes during the event to help her keep the skaters straight, and probably wasn't really meant for posting. It would have been more politically correct to refer to a skater as black or african-canadian rather than using the n word.
