Jesse Jackson joins speedskater Shani Davis in stunning leap of logic, calls coin flip ‘unfair’

Race hustler Jesse Jackson is backing up U.S. speedskater Shani Davis in his bid to portray Team USA as somehow “unfair” for determining who would be the Opening Ceremonies American flag bearer with a simple, unbiased coin flip.

Because who cares about logic anyway when you can grab a headline or two?

In a Thursday tweet that has since been made unavailable to the public, Davis wrote, “I am an American and when I won the 1000m in 2010 I became the first American to 2-peat in that event. @TeamUSA dishonorably tossed a coin to decide its 2018 flag bearer. No problem. I can wait until 2022. #BlackHistoryMonth2018 #PyeongChang2018.”

Not only did the speedskater throw a public social media temper tantrum, he also made things worse by boycotting the Opening Ceremonies entirely.

Instead, Erin Hamlin led the team.

Hamlin did a great job, but you’d have to be severely twisted to think her selection had anything to do with race, especially since it was decided by a totally random coin flip.

Unless, of course, you believe coins are racist.

For his part, the “Reverend” Jackson wants a “more appropriate” system.

In other words, a system that will automatically select the black individual, apparently. What else could he mean? Plenty of Twitter users were quick to point out the absurdity of Jackson’s demand.
