The International Olympic Committee Shuts Down ShaCarri Richardson

This week track star ShaCarri Richardson pointed out the difference in punishment between herself and a Russian skater after she was barred from competing in the Summer Olympics for testing positive for smoking weed verses the Russian skater who tested positive for a performance enhancing drug and was still allowed to compete [click here if you missed that]. 

The International Olympic Committee responds to ShaCarri's grievances....

Basically the IOC dismissed ShaCarri saying the cases are not the same.

'You can't talk about double standards in relation to Russian and American athletes, each case is individual.
'Richardson's positive doping test was discovered on 19 June, and the result was received before the start of the Olympics. She was suspended for a month. There is nothing in common between these two cases.'
'This Games, which has not concluded, concerns an issue in December. She is in the center of a lot of speculation. It must be very tough for her.
'We of course are in touch with the team, her welfare is the team's first priority, and obviously we are very careful of that but there's only so much that we can do.'

Unfortunately, towards Sha'Carri I don't feel anything for her. She had an opportunity that others would consider a big deal. Her mama died and that shit cuts like a knife. Yet, everybody goes thru something. Her attitude during that time was one of a spoiled ass brat and then people upheld her screw up. The 15 year old that they let compete end up being a bust anyway~~her performance fell through.

Being as though we have some of the greatest athletes in the world, I say America skip the next Olympics.

We all know how whitey do. Your problem is you know better than to do drugs before a race. It takes a long time for drugs to leave your system. You should have paid for a doctor's statement like Yt's do.

In All Honesty, ShaCarri had a choice, it was to Smoke Or Not Smoke a Drug that was Prohibited. She chose to SMOKE, knowing that if Detected there would be Consequences to Pay. There is NO Comparison, when it comes to the Rules Of 2 Different Countries, Disciplining Their Athletes. Suck It Up & Move On, This Is Not A Black & White Issue... I'm Sorry That Her Mother Passed, and she decided to use that as her Excuse for making her Life Changing Decision. 'Condolences Sent, RIP'...

They are a bunch of racist assholes, that's why the yt bitch lost. They need to legalize weed, it is not a drug.

@12:32 It certainly isn't a performance enhancing drug.

@2:12 that's all I was saying... I had a big long conversation and I see a lot of it was erased where I was being called a white supremacist or troll I'm saying we need to be a lot more responsible as black people with opportunity to represent...
I don't care what the Russians girl did my thing as you as a black woman that put all this black history then you should be doing better thank you I've been reading a lot of rhymes with way back in 2002 and I never respond but this I had to make my opinion I'm glad some people understand we got to do better....
