People Making Marathons About Race
Whenever there's a marathon you always hear at least one person comment about the fact that only Africans win and whenever there's an Ironman triathalon or a swimming competition or a NASCAR event you always hear someone say "Hey how come there are no Black people?" For some reason people are always trying to make speed travel contests about race. When you're at a race, race should be the last thing on your mind. The faster people can realize that race means nothing, the sooner we can discuss race maturely and understand that race is about race and not race.
