RE: Why is it A BIG DEAL the Jeremy Wariner is white?
It is common knowledge that white guys typically don't excel in the sprints. So it is, of course, of interest to most track fans that a white american wins gold in the 400. How is it racism? It's uncommon so people are surprised, that's all. If a white guy broke the 100m record, people (including yourself) would be shocked. However, I was more surprised at the fact that Jeremy is so young rather than the fact that he is white.
