Simone Manuel made history this week when she became the first African American to win an Olympic gold medal in swimming. Unfortunately, she immediately used the platform her success gave her to speak out against both the United States and her home state of Texas.
This girl should be ashamed of herself…
After being declared the first black American to win gold in an Olympic swimming competition, Simone Manuel was granted an opportunity to address the public. Unfortunately, she used her platform to speak about police in America, and it only took her one line to thoroughly embarrass our nation.
Entitled brats are wreaking havoc in our country, and they seem to fill the ranks of any demographic, position, or rank. Proving just that, the woman who was recently declared the first black American woman to win gold in an Olympic swimming competition has taken it upon herself to use her public platform to spew her political beliefs.
In Rio on August 11, Simone Manuel finished the 100-meter freestyle with a time of 52:70 and tied with 16-year-old Penny Oleksiak from Canada. The two both technically won and now share an Olympic record. Unfortunately, in an interview regarding her first place win, the American Olympian decided to go a little off topic – a little to the left, to be more precise.
“It means a lot, especially with what is going on in the world today, some of the issues of police brutality,” she said. “This win hopefully brings hope and change to some of the issues that are going on. My color just comes with the territory.”
