It seems that racism exists everywhere, including the United Kingdom, where the Olympic games are set to be held this year. The Voice, Britain’s oldest black newspaper, has been banned from covering the Olympics, having their application denied. It appears that the struggles of black journalists overseas are not much different than the challenges here in the US, where black journalists can’t even get in on sessions with the first black president.
This is a sad state of affairs and makes all of us reconsider just how loyal we are going to be to the country that won’t even let black journalists in Britain do their jobs. KultureKritic.com tells more:
Decision makers at the Olympics don’t mind if black people compete in the Olympics, but apparently they’re not too keen on black people covering the games.
This is the conclusion many have reached after Britain’s longest serving black newspaper, The Voice, was not granted permission to cover the Olympics.
Last week, the 30 year old newspaper published an article outlining how the British Olympics Association (BOA) had told them their application to cover the games had been unsuccessful.
