....are apparently arseholes.

Quinn Simmons has been posting racist tropes in response to some cycling journalists and acting like a true Trump fan. Trek-Segafredo is trying to get it under control, but it ain't going so well.

And apparently Chole Dygert fits in right along with him, but haven't seen any actual quotes / posts that she has made. Pretty disappointing.

I hope this doesn't describe Sep Kuss.

I just read this. After listening to our pres talk last night about rewriting history to exclude all mention of slavery (not his words, but his intent) ...

https://www.theatlantic.com/ideas/archive/2020/09/real-stakes-fight-over-history/616455/?utm_source=pocket-newtab.

Just finished reading "The Sword and the Shield" on MLK and Malcolm X. Just started reading "incidents in the Life of a Slave Girl". Stuff like this should be required HS reading. (My senior year English teacher had us read "The Autobiography of Malcolm X". I don't recall him teaching us any English but he was my most profound classroom teacher on the lessons of life - by a lot. Thank you Ted Reese.)

No...Caley Fritz explicitly said Kuss is very much the opposite (along with Ruth Winder).

Well, if true, then count me NOT being a fan of Dygert's. Having grown up close to Brownsburg, Indiana, it's not surprising though. Rampant racism runs pretty deep. It all comes down to the environment you grow up in. Some people break free from that mentality, some don't.

Yet another side-effect of social media. Letting your true colors shine through for all to see!!

BOOM!!! Yes, I'm now a big fan of Trek-Segafredo, whatever Segafredo is.

When are people going to learn that not everything in their stupid little heads needs to be shared with the world? Not condoning what was going on in his stupid little head, but jeesh, keep that stuff to yourself.

Segafredo is an Italian espresso maker, similar in concept to Nespresso. Drop in pods, get espresso.

When I went to MonteNegro last year, they had Segafredo machines in the rooms. I stole one of the espresso cups with the logo on it.

But I wish they had just fired the little fook.

As for Chloe, apparently she liked bunch of anti-trans posts and other stuff by Candace Owens back when the BLM movement started. Forget her.

Yes it is complicated.
Not knowing all the pertintents, I'll take a chance and wade in:
I am sensitive to women athletes' concerns about athlete men converting to women after enjoying the benefits of testosterone during development. Is this Ms Dygart's concern? If so, then 100% valid.
If her concern is less specific, then I am also sympathetic, but life is complicated, and a silver platter is reserved for the uber lucky like 45, For the rest of us, we just have to suck it up.

So I went through her “Likes” on Twitter.....in addition to liking some tty horrid crap from Pwens, she also liked posts from Trump and Charlie Kirk. The anti-trans stuff had nothing to do with sports....

Gonna have to pass Dygert from now on....really disappointed.

Admire athletes for their athletic ability not their brains. But if they are haters admire them for nothing. Very sad to hear Chloë is messed up in the head.
