Simone Manuel became the first African American woman to win a gold medal in swimming when she finished the 100-meter freestyle with a time of 52:70 in Rio on August 11.
And what did she do with her newfound fame and glory?
She used her platform to diss police officers, as all loyal Black Lives Matter devotees do, of course!
During an interview on her first place win, Manuel went a little off topic. She veered pretty far to the left, actually.
“It means a lot, especially with what is going on in the world today, some of the issues of police brutality,” said Manuel, according to Right Wing News. “This win hopefully brings hope and change to some of the issues that are going on. My color just comes with the territory.”
“It is something I’ve definitely struggled with a lot,” she continued. “Coming into the race I tried to take [the] weight of the black community off my shoulders. It’s something I carry with me. I want to be an inspiration, but I would like there to be a day when it is not ‘Simone the black swimmer.'”
Unbelievable… “The weight of the black community”??? I’m sorry, do you mean the weight of the community which boasts the highest rate of violent crime, fatherless households and incarceration?
I didn’t think so…
Simone Manuel is a disgrace to America. Share this report if you think she would do well to keep her racist trap shut.
