This punk doesn't want to play the game and protested the opening ceremony;

C&P
Erin Hamlin has led Team USA out for the start of the Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang after being named as flag carrier ahead of Shani Davis, who boycotted the ceremony.

Hamlin, a four-time Olympian and winner of a luge bronze medal at the 2014 Sochi games, beamed a broad smile as she led out the athletes competing at the games in South Korea to the accompaniment of 'Gangnam Style'.

The 31-year-old was chosen in a tie-breaking coin toss with speedskater Shani Davis, one of just a few black athletes in Team USA, who says he should have been chosen to carry the Stars and Stripes.

Davis, 35, a five-time Olympian who has won two gold medals and two silver medals, lost after a vote among sports federations represented at the games ended in a draw.
A U.S. speed skating spokesman said Davis had not originally planned to march in the parade of nations later on Friday, but would have made an exception if he had been chosen as flag-bearer.

'Shani won't march in the parade. It was never part of his plans. He is fully focused on his first race and is concentrating on that,' the spokesman said.

In an angry tweet, Davis, took a shot at Hamlin, the holder of a single bronze medal.

'I am an American and when I won the 1000m in 2010 I became the first American to 2-peat in that event,' Davis wrote on Twitter in the early hours of Thursday.

He then slammed Team USA for 'dishonorably' tossing a coin to decide who would have the honor of carrying the flag.

'No problem. I can wait until 2022,' he added before using the hashtag #BlackHistoryMonth2018.'

The reaction has not gone down well with fans who dubbed Davis a 'baby', 'spoiled' and said his reaction was a case of 'sour grapes'.

He tweeted again today, in what appears to be another a thinly veiled jibe at Team USA who have already faced criticism over the lack of diversity in their 2018 Winter team.

'It has been such an honor to have represented the greatest, most diverse country in the world at the last five Winter Games during the same month as #blackhistorymonth #goTeamUSA.

'Watch 'Origins of Black History Month'.'


What a punk!

Send him home, I don't want a bitch like that representing me.

His being black has more meaning to him that being an American. His childish attitude is common in the black victim culture so celebrated by today's dolts.

I am a practicing Curmudgeon, someone that hates hypocrisy and pretense and has the temerity to say so.

He needs to get his head out of his butt. He excelled at what he does and got picked for the team on his accomplishments as a skater not because he was black .So he is pissed because they didn't pick him and blames it on being black ,so maybe he should just pack his bags go home and cry on oprahs shoulder a while

don't pick a fight with an old man ,if he is to old to fight he will just shoot you

Why he brought race into it, is beside me. All he did was, stir the pot that Obama created, a little more. You would think the nation would heal after 50+ years of segregation ending, but people like him, are making it slide backwards Hope he breaks a leg, Literally.

Wow what a credit to the team. 1st he boycotts the opening cermony and then the best he can do is 19th???????


C&P
Shani Davis, the American speedskater who boycotted the opening ceremonies last Friday after losing a coin flip to determine the flag bearer for the US team, finished 19th in the 1,500-meter event on Tuesday.

Davis, 35, was faced with questions about a tweet in which he suggested he was denied the flag bearer honor because of his race.

After his disappointing finish Tuesday at Gangneung Ice Arena in South Korea, he asked the press to stick to the topic of skating.

'Before we started this interview we were sticking to skating-only questions, so I would like to focus on skating-only questions,' Davis told USA Today.

The Chicago native was, of course, asked about his tweet on Thursday in which he slammed the 'dishonorable' coin flip that was won by Olympic teammate Erin Hamlin.

Hamlin, a luge competitor, was chosen to carry the flag at the head of the American delegation during the opening ceremonies.

'I am an American and when I won the 1000m in 2010 I became the first American to 2-peat in that event,' he wrote on Twitter.

'@TeamUSA dishonorably tossed a coin to decide its 2018 flag bearer. No problem. I can wait until 2022. #BlackHistoryMonth2018 #PyeongChang2018.'

On Monday, however, Davis said he was 'over' not being picked to bear the flag.

'It happened for the better, I probably needed the rest anyway,' Davis told Dutch newspaper Nederlandse Omroep.

'But you know, once every four years, my fifth Olympics, I thought it would be really special to hold the flag. I guess the USOC and other people thought differently.'



To these millennials everything is about rayce, we can thank barry sotero for that.

Put him on a bus to North Korea and let them sort it all out.

Just saw where he finished 19th today. I'll just let that fact stand for what it may.
