^ Just to be clear, bad because none of those was run by white Anglo-Saxons.
Why do you have to bring in the race card? The same people you call racist for being skeptical are the same people of NOP and Galen Rupp of doping. Rupp is anglo-saxon. Also, the same people who call out the Russians and Chinese for doping. Or, go read some of the older threads about the Finnish runners and read the same people being skeptical. Or, read the Ingebrigtsen threads, people accusing them of doping. Same thing with Evan Jager, people here accuse him of doping. So clearly there is no biases here on letsrun since the same people you call racist are the same people that accuse some of the best "white"runners of doping.[/quote]
Dude, spare us your phony "I'm offended!" nonsense. There are, in fact, 3 MAIN types of doping accusers (with a few sub-types). There are probably a fe wothers, but these 3 types make the large majority of the "he/she is doping!" posts
1) genuinely believes that EVERY runner who does anything slightly extraordinary (or is just faster than them) is on the sauce
a) accuses everyone of being a doper just to piss off fans of those runners
b) accuses african runners of being dopers just to piss fans of african runners (but doesn't really believe it)
3) White people who accuse all black runners (sprinters and distance runners) (see: Coevett, Phantasy Star, and many others on here) of being dopers because it angers them to no end that white runners rarely win any big track or road races, and they must believe that whites can not be inferior in anything
There's your majority of doping posts. #3 is a HUGE amount on let'srun. And no, the people in group 3 are not accusing white runners of doping also. Nope. Group 1 accuses white and black, but group 3 ONLY focuses on black runners. They are not, as you say, accusing Ingebrigtsen or Jager or even Rupp of doping. No way.
