if you 'allow' protests, it's not a protest, so those who wish to actually protest, will do it in such a way that it infringes the rules.... I would have thought.

I would like to see an athlete with a shirt on which is written “Rich white people’s lives matter” and stand in a place where Bach, Coates et. al can clearly see it.

Then again those guys are so full of themselves that they probably wouldn’t understand he irony and would think they were being complimented.

Love America? Right its wrongs. Step One was taken last November. More work to be done.

American left is obsessed with race and now their immaturity and selfishness threatens to disrupt the Olympics. Their self centered protests may well put off other competitors and taint the good standing of the games.

Live activism, politics and religion out of the Olimpics!
