    they outlawed this move just because she was the only woman who could do it. 

    Surya Bonaly was infamous for (among other things) doing aone blade backflip in the 1998 Olympics, and is the ONLY figure skater who’s ever pulled that off. Not just the only woman, the only figure skater PERIOD. There’s like all ofthree Olympic-class male skaters who did backflips in their routines, and NONE of them could do it one blade.

    But wait, there’s more.

    Backflips were banned from the 1976 Olympics onward on the official justification that skating jumps are supposed to be landed on one blade, whereas backflips are landed on both blades. The unofficial justification was it was too dangerous, both to the athlete and to the rink — if you didn’t land it perfectly, you could not only break your ankle, but also punch THROUGH the ice surface.

    Surya Bonaly was openly contemptuous of the figure skating judges, because they were a bunch of openly racist white men who always screwed her over by giving her lower scores than she deserved. That one-blade backflip was her ultimate FUCK YOU! to the Olympics judges, because she took an “illegal” backflip and made it legal by landing it on one blade. Pretty much DARING them to mark her down for being epic awesome and pulling a move that their precious coddled white girls didn’t have the guts to even think about.

    They did, of course. White racism knows no bounds. But she utterly owned them with that move.

    not only did she do a fucking backflip and land, she landed then went right into a triple loop. like holy fuck

    Damn son I ain’t seen shit like that.

  9. "The worst thing in the world to me has to be the topic of who can and who cannot say the word “nigga”. THE MAIN reason it has become ridiculous is because of the fact that white people feel as if they have a voice in the conversation. How dare a white person say “white people should be able to use the n-word if there is no racist intent” and believe it or not no white person should even say “nobody should say the n-word”. White people have no say in the conversation simply because it’s too complex. The African American experience is detrimentally unique! No white person to walk this planet knows what it is like to be black. To live a life under constant pressure where you’re not safe from racial discrimination at any location during any hour of the day is something specific to the black experience. Until a white person can say they have felt that pressure for an entire life time they will not have a voice in the conversation. How dare you speak on a topic so pseudo passionately that ultimately does not even affect you. White people own the majority of what exists in this world, but when they lose their grip on ONE word that THEY chose to create and throw at us, we all of the sudden have to give them a chance to change the rules…AGAIN so the pendulum can swing in their favor. They already have enough unearned privilege and this need not be another one. Grow up."
