Sha’Carri Richardson’s Homophobic Past Comes Back to Haunt Her

I am usually anti-cancelling anyone, but her mother ought to be cancelled for giving that poor girl that name. Maybe that's why she needs weed and is hateful.

She mentioned a gf in her interviews.

by Anonymousreply 307/02/2021

Fuck her ignorant ass.

by Anonymousreply 407/02/2021

this is cultural.... and also true. finding the words to explain it or rationalize the contradiction.... perhaps QUEEN LATIFAH — if she wants to do some good — could help Sha'Carri

Her handlers are shitting bricks because of two questions Dallas Voice posed to Latifah regarding an interview in the September 2007 issue of Glamour magazine, which features her royal highness on the cover. Not only is she an undeniable super-talent, Latifah is a Cover Girl spokesperson who has revolutionized cultural perceptions. She’s a big-boned ebony seductress who vacillates between butch and glam while every entertainment industry kisses her luscious ass: music, movies, fashion. And she’s a lesbian icon — who’s as out as Jodie Foster. But any interviewer who asks Queen Latifah if she’s gay always gets the same answer: that her personal life is personal. Latifah also says questions about her sexuality are “insulting.” If rumors are billowing around Queen Latifah, she’s helped fan the flames. In “Chicago,” Latifah’s turn as a lesbian warden was so convincing that she got an Oscar nod. And at the “Hairspray” premiere, Latifah’s red-carpet date was Jeanette Jenkins, her longtime personal trainer. Latifah’s rattling closet is addressed in the Glamour interview. But she thinks the rumors are trying to “bring her down.” However, that’s not all. “The gay thing hasn’t messed up my appeal to the gentlemen, because I have never had any problems meeting men. Maybe they get turned on by the idea of that!” Latifah said. If that wasn’t enough for lesbians to start burning their iPods, Latifah was asked about her opinions on gay marriage. “I don’t think that it should be called marriage. But the idea of it is the same, and you should have the same quality of rights that a married person has. People think of marriage as something that is between a man and a women, because it was created by God. Well, let God handle the judgment, too. You stay out of it.”

I honestly don't understand why people who are entering any kind of public spotlight don't scrub their damn social media of anything remotely offensive or questionable.

I didn't even realize how young she is so the old tweets just come off as a dumbass teenager saying stupid shit online.

If the rule is that you can't smoke weed, then you can't smoke weed. All elite athletes know this. Whether it's a fair rule is a different matter.

I don't understand the hammer thrower. I 100% support BLM and protests of the national anthem at sports events. If she wants to do this, then fine. But what's the message? The black power salute in 1968 was powerful and intelligible. What she did was not. And her makeup made her look like a fool.

Whites are collectively to blame for homophobia. Blacks and other nonwhite races who attack gays do so in order to curry favor with the white supremacists they desperately pander to with the hopes of being accepted by them and considered one of them.

Homophobia is white supremacy. Whites invented it. Whites made it into a lifestyle. Whites used it to turn other races against gay people to divide and conquer. Blame them and them alone.

The IOC was the one who disqualified Andreea Raducan after winning gold on the atroucious (they messed up with the vault height and made a lot of gymnast fall, including big favourite Svetlana Khorkhina) AA competition at Sydney. And they only disqualified her for the AA competition, because her doctor gave her a pill with a substance that was not on the banned list only one year later.

People have left refugee camps after war torn countries killed their family to come to the Olympics—-they drug tested and avoided substances for the opportunity of a lifetime. An American Elite athlete no matter the personal tragedy or background should know the IOC is not New York or Massachusetts or California. The world is not America -contrary to how most Americans think.

Im sorry i know the woke want this to be something but she broke the rules knowingly and thought she could get out of it with sympathy.

Losing a parent is horrible but this isnt the UCLA office of accommodations ——this is the international olympics. There is no sympathy for rule breaking.

I hate rules and I hate anti weed nuts and yet I agree with the Olympics here. Being black and queer and having lost a parent means nothing on the world stage. Black Americans forget there’s an entire continent of Black people on the global stage who many have faced civil war, famine, poverty and more and still follow the rules to compete……..

Why do we always act shocked when a black celebrity ends up being homophobic (against gay men, because despite how the LGBT conversation is being deliberately steered away from them gay men are still the most discriminated against queer group). Homophobia is so engrained in the black community that it should basically just be assumed that every black personality who isn't a gay man themselves is homophobic.

Call that racist if you want, but I'm tired of having to act surprised every time a black celebrity is "revealed" to hate gay men. It's happened too many times at this point to deny the pattern.

Will the Karen cunt who tweeted about "gay white men" show the same understanding if a white athlete had tweeted something horrible about blacks and there had been an uproar? Would the bitch have written that the only people upset were black people and then asked them to give the athlete time to learn?

The excuse that S'C is young and still learning is bullshit. People her age are busy screaming out their opinions about every issue on social media all day and we are expected to take them seriously in all those instances but she is suddenly "young and still learning" just when it comes to this?

This sounds like the "a 6-year-old child is old enough to know that he wants to transition and take puberty blockers but a 14-year-old who did that and regrets it and wants to reverse the transition is too young and ignorant to make these decisions" arguments from the trans lobby.

I find funny the outrage of some people on twitter because the old Sha`Carry tweet refurface because they are the same people that will be up in arms if it was a white NFL player who made racist comments at 12.

The IOC couldn't care less about twitter outrage and she is not that big to even put pressure on them

by Anonymousreply 12207/04/2021

I think Sha'Carri is a very talented, impressive woman. I also recognize that all of the praise she's getting has nothing to do with her talent and everything to do with the color of her skin. She's being made into a symbol, which is why everybody is talking about her. If she was white but had the same level of talent as an athlete people wouldn't be talking about her like this.

by Anonymousreply 12307/04/2021

But i could understand her being a symbol for being an amazing athlete (she will be very far from being the first amazing black athlete anyway) but they are making her a symbol just for being an idiot

by Anonymousreply 12407/04/2021

R124 She was a symbol before the weed thing came out. Everyone was like "Oh My God look how impressive this BLACK WOMAN runner is!"

Her being made into a symbol has nothing to do with the weed. From the very start, her talent was taking a back seat to her race. This happened to other black female athletes before her, Gabby Douglas and Simone Biles are the most recent and known examples.

A lot of people only root for Sha'Carri because of the color of her skin. I don't think she should be disqualified or punished for the weed thing, but I do think that if she was white the public wouldn't be rallying behind her over it the way that they are.

Sorry, but Gabby Douglas was the first black gymnast to win olympic gold (and there were very few pioneers Dominique Dawes) and Simone Biles was the first black world champion and she is the best gymnast ever (at least the best under the new code).

There were a lot of amazing track and field black athletes before, from Florence Griffith Joyner to Gail Devers, she is far from being the first or the better

Now, she is someone I would consider to be talented and impressive. Hell, Sydney McLaughlin set a WR, Athing Mu is the 2nd fastest American woman at 800m (and only 19), Deanna Price is now 2nd all-time in the hammer throw, and I could go on.

As a long time track and field fan, I loathe the fact SCR has taken all of the attention away from what is shaping up to be one of the strongest and most talented Oly teams I have seen in ages.

After reading through the Twitter comments posted in response Gabby's tweet about why blacks should not boycott the Olympics it's clear that some people simply cannot get out of their own way. Gabby makes perfect, rational sense while many people replied with ignorant shit like refusing to support a country that doesn't support them...All in response to an athlete who disregarded sponsors, supporters, teammates & rules just to get high. Never mind that black females dominate in this sport, black females who don't fuck it up by giving & receiving the respect they should give & deserve in return. Yea, some people simply do not & will never get it. And these are these are the fuckers who typically make the most noise about unfairness & "living in a country that doesn't support them".

by Anonymousreply 16407/07/2021

R163 is right. She wasn't even a lock for gold at the Olympics. She would probably have had her ass kicked given the Jamaican team has 3 women at her level. The American MSM was acting like Elaine Thompson, Shericka Jackson and. especially, SAFP (who always brings it when it matters) don't exist. The Jamaicans could quite as easily have gone 1-2-3. I think the ban saved and gives her more time to build and bask in her celebrity.

But I'll give her this: the sport of track & field hasn't had anyone with this much mainstream star power since Usain Bolt retired. If she matches it on the field, she could be his replacement as the face of the sport. This is stunning when you think about it because tennis is the only other sport that allows women to be on a par with, and in cases like Serena, sometimes eclipse the men.

by Anonymousreply 17407/08/2021

R174, I’m not sure what happened over the last year, but I thought Noah Lyles would have made the 100 Oly Team. He has run the fastest 200m time this year, but still looks kinda rusty. The potential 200/400 guy isn’t Noah, it’s Michael Norman (who is also running inconsistently).

[quote]If a white athlete had tweeted the n-word slur when they were a teenager,

The N word is race based. Calling someone a fag is sexuality/homophobia based.

And Sha'Carri herself is a LESBIAN.

That's an important distinction here because, like many gay people, Sha'Carri likely grew up in an environment where she was taught to hate herself.

The other important distinction is that this situation took place when she was a teenager. No one would launch a campaign against her off Twitter because of that. They'd probably stay out of it entirely. Someone might bring up homophobia in the black community. She'll say she's grown as a person.

People aren't entirely without sense. The argument, "She was 15 and closeted" applies here and it would be made over and over again.

As for her Lil Nas X tweet, him referencing Satanic imagery and signing shoes in blood is something that most people can understand that someone religious would be offended by. The kids on Twitter might be upset about that or think she meant something different but at the end of the day her opinion isn't that different than even some other gay people.

[quote]Why tf is this woman’s weed gate of any importance to the White House?

We live in a country where recreational cannabis use is creeping towards national legalization while it is also just fine in several states.

It will have to be addressed at some point. As someone else said, the USA isn't the world but we are part of it.

And I'm with Biden when he said, when asked, that rules are rules but maybe they should be changed.

by Anonymousreply 23207/16/2021

The rules are not just about recreational use in the US. It's more involved than that and not understanding that makes the Biden administration stupid.

[quote] That's an important distinction here because, like many gay people, Sha'Carri likely grew up in an environment where she was taught to hate herself.

blah, blah, blah

Here's what it all comes down to, this chick is a dumb ass. She's months/weeks away from the Olympics and she was doing all this stupid shit. She should be practicing and keeping her head down

She's going to fuck it up again and do or say some kind of stupid shit

[quote] First Principles not in your wheelhouse obviously. Not everyone lives their life according to their feels. Many live by principles. When you evolve further you may understand this

What the are you even talking about? Get off drugs

You seem to think the first amendment means a person can say whatever they want, no one can criticize them and there shouldn't be any consequences for what they said

And once again, you are wrong. You are ignorant.

This woman can say what she wants, but there may be consequences. It's been that way, since the beginning of time

The rest of world was able to grasp that concept by the age of 8

Poor Sha'Carri won't be making the team for the next Olympics either. This hoodrat will probably be in prison for some felony by then. On the bright side if she manages to escape from prison she can outrun the guard dogs at least for the first 200 meters or so.

R237 et al, you're hilarious. Is this more of that obfuscate and detract playbook? Change the goalposts so you can win the argument?

The issue is whether making homophobic remarks makes people ok with her suspension from the team. That's the entire thrust of the thread. Before this discovery of her old tweets people were upset that she lost her chance due to weed use. Then it devolved into, no it's ok she's off cause she made homophobic attacks in the past.

THAT is the issue being discussed. I am not okay with someone being suspended from the team for hateful tweets, no matter how I personally feel about them. That is a First Principle which you are clueless about.

You're just ranting and descending to ad hominem insults that make no sense. Grow up.

by Anonymousreply 24207/17/2021

It's ok she is off the team because she make a really stupid mistake all by herself.

The hateful tweets are just an extra (and extra her fans defended her without hesitation by the way)

All the “woke” people out there giving her a pass on homophobia and illegal drug use because she’s black. Is that really where we are at as a society? That’s not true equality.

by Anonymousreply 244Last Monday at 4:58 PM

R244 Yep. That’s why I’m done caring about supposed race issues. We’re supposed to always fight racism, but nobody wants to help us fight homophobia. So everyone can just fight on their own.💁‍♂️

* The fact she's a lesbian doesn't change that

* She gets a pass because of her race

by Anonymousreply 250Last Tuesday at 1:59 PM

The ban really is the best thing that could've happened to her. She's now one of the most famous athletes in America, all without winning a thing. She's featured in the new Beats by Dre commercial, personally scored and edited by Kanye West, featuring a song from his new album.

I think she's now challenging Serena Williams as the country's number one female athlete. That's marketing for you.

Sorry, but Serena is a legend and Sha'Carry is simply a promising athlete. She is not Serena, she is not Simone Biles and this kind of fame will vanish if she doesn't back it up with results

Sha'Carri is lucky these Olympics are looking like a disaster. Let's just hope hse breaks records in track world championships then ride the hype into 2024

When are FloJo's steroid aided world records going to be struck off the books along with those of Koch and Kratochvilova? Drug cheats, all of them.

by Anonymousreply 255Last Wednesday at 1:39 PM

She looks like a troll doll.

by Anonymousreply 256Last Wednesday at 3:13 PM

r253 Yes, she's not Serena or Simon Biles, she hasn't accomplished anything, But she's being treated like them. If she had gone to the Olympics and gotten beaten by the Jamaicans, that would've been the end of her.

by Anonymousreply 257Last Wednesday at 6:04 PM

R255 I predict Athing Mu will take down the w800m WR and has the potential to break the 400m record too. Considering that Sydney McLaughlin just set a 51.9 WR in the 400m hurdles, she probably has the potential to break the 400m WR too.

World Athletics (IAAF) should annul the w100m 10.49 mark since it is a known wind-aided mark. The fact that they won’t is crap, that tailwind was at least 5m/s (which would make the 10.49 a 10.7x with 0.0 wind speed).

Say what you will about Koch and FloJo but their running forms were incredible.

by Anonymousreply 258Last Wednesday at 11:18 PM

r259 Athing Mu is getting nowhere near that record. Even Caster Semenya couldn't. Have you seen the woman who holds it? The NYT calls it "track's most resilient (and suspect) record" for a reason. 40 years later and still no one has come close.

R257 Maybe she is a superstar on the USA but nobody knows her outside.

Of course that's the case of most country singers and they are filthy rich anyway

by Anonymousreply 260Last Thursday at 9:46 AM

R259 Kratcho looked like a hulk, but that doesn’t mean the record is unbreakable and Pamela Jelimo came very close to breaking it in 2008. Athing is 19 and has already run a 1:56 low - if she can stay healthy, breaking 1:53.28 is a achievable goal.

Caster Semenya could have should have broken the record, but let’s be real “she” never had the best racing mechanics/strategy imo.

by Anonymousreply 261Last Thursday at 2:33 PM

Poor Evelyn Ashford. I felt she knew FloJo was cheating and that she thought everyone else knew it too but no one wanted to say it out loud. The US media harped on the allegations surrounding the East Germans, Czechoslovaks and Soviets, but not a peep about FloJo, who showed an impossible improvement in her times in less than a year, shattered world records and "peaked" just in time for the Olympics and then "retired" suddenly when the athletics bodies announced more rigorous drug testing.

Without this cheating bitch Ashford would have been a deserving two-time 100m gold medalist and Merlene Ottey could probably have won gold or at least silver in the 200m. (Heike Drechsler, who won bronze in the 200, was a known drug cheat and the Jamaican Grace Jackson, who ran a career best time in the 200 final, was suspect too.)
