African American speedskater Shani Davis, Team USA, won his second gold medal last night in the 1,000-meter.
Shani became the first African American to win an individual Winter Games event four years ago.
Last to skate, the Chicago native had just the fifth fastest time with 400 meters remaining, 0.26 seconds behind the Korean. But he exploded on the final turn and, with the sold-out crowd at the Olympic Oval roaring, came home with the day’s best time.
This brother is making Black History! Congrats!
Hey, perhaps someone should foward this info to the NHL and let them know that recruiting more brothers for hockey teams might be a great idea.

spike lee wearing obama dunk shirt
I love this shirt!!! (If you’re in Denver, you can get the shirt at THE 400) Obama for 2…no Obama for it all. He shoots he scores. In your FACE, McCAIN!!! Slam Dunk!! I’ts called the O-Face T-Shirt and I’m buying one online TODAY. Spike so looked like the black radical we love wearing that shirt. He said he bought the tee in Denver and had to walk 5 miles to get it once he saw it. Now that Spike Lee has worn this UNDRCRWN shirt it on national TV, it’s going to be sported all over (and most likely bootlegged and copied).
Here’s the video of Spike Lee on MSNBC
From hypebeast.com: “UNDRCRWN are the latest to pay homage as the basketball inspired label takes an unforgettable moment in basketball history and makes it distinctly Obama. Teaming up with Karmaloop and Denver retailer The 400, this t-shirt will be presented at this year’s Democratic National Convention in Denver. The inspiration if not immediately evident is based on Vince Carter’s spectacular Dunk over 7 foot something Frenchman Weiss back in 2000. The t-shirt’s sale will benefit local charities looking to improve inner city youth participation in sports.”
