Making It Rain On These Hoes: Shani Davis Wins Gold!!

- By Bossip Staff Categories: Congratulations, Making it Rain on Them Hoes, News

BOSSIP spotlighted 2006 Winter Olympic Gold Medalist Shani Davis just last week, and tonight he has taken home yet another individual Olympic gold medal for the 2010 games in 1,000-meter speedskating:

The color of the medal mattered, not the color of his skin. All Shani Davis was thinking about was gold. With a furious kick on the final lap Wednesday, Davis stuck his skate across the line and won his second straight Olympic title in 1,000-meter speedskating, the first skater to win this event twice at the Winter Games.

“That race depleted me 100 percent,” he said. “I never want to leave anything on the track.” “Those last 200, 300 meters were very difficult,” said Davis, who usually leaves his left arm on his back until the final straightaway. “I was just trying to carry my speed. I could feel it leaving me. It doesn’t matter what it looks like, just as long as you get across the line as quick as you could.”

When he won this race four years ago, Davis became the first African-American athlete to win an individual gold at the Winter Games. This time, he simply wanted to be known for his skating.

“When you’re a world champion or an Olympic champion, you get this little thing on your back called a target,” Davis said. “To go out there and win the 1,000 meters twice is truly amazing.”

That’s what’s up…congratulations are truly in order!!!

    I agree with white male. Celebrating someone just because they are black? That is racist! Blacks are such hypocrites. They acuse whites of not getting past color. But they are the ones that bring it up all the time. That’s because they are so racist.

    Umm really, why can’t we be proud of our race. When ever we want to celebrate for talents, achievments, educations, inventions of our race that we don’t get recognized for, someone has to shoot us down. Our entire history books are full of what a white man has done, nothing about the achievements black man have done, nothing about the acheivemnts of woman in general…So let us have our shine were its due.

    *where

  • BlessedandHighlyFavored

    Oh please @ those that talking about those of us that choosing to CELEBRATE our AFRICAN AMERICAN BROTHA just because he is BLACK, stop you’re sideways mess!

    I can’t nor will I speak for all, but what I will say is I AM SOOOOOOOOOOOO PROUD OF MY BROTHA, yes he represents America and we are rooting for America, but how many African Americans do we see in these WINTER OLYMPICS? SO if I can CELEBRATE someone who LOOKS LIKE ME, YOU DARN RIGHT I’M GOING TO PLACE EMPHASIS ON HIS SKIN TON and I love the FACT that he also RESPECTS and EMBRACES his BLACK HERITAGE and I LOVE IT!!!!!!!

  • BlessedandHighlyFavored

    THANK YOU TONI, EXACTLY MY POINT AS WELL. IT’S NOT MANY OF US IN THE WINTER OLYMPICS, SO THE ONES OF “US” THAT I DO SEE, I AM GOING TO BE ROOTING FOR THEM AND THANK YOU AGAIN FOR DRIVING THE POINT ON HOME!!!!!!!!

  • Toni

    Ohh I too was brain washed until I took history and government classes in college. I was sitting in class amazed thinking why didn’t I learn this in school? A little research for those who think we are dumb we let them know we created a large majority of the everyday things they use. I’m not brainwashed anymore, and my son will not grow up to be either!

  • ohnooooo
