The United States of Hypocrisy

Gabe Bergado’s Tweet was wrong. It wasn’t “white privilege”, it was “Olympian privilege” that allowed the swimmers to (briefly) get away with their actions. The result would have been identical if this ploy had been committed by Simone Biles or Usain Bolt, everyone would have believed them. And if Lochte was just an ordinary white tourist visiting Brazil, no one would have cared about his robbery story in the first place.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
