  1. The NBC commercial after Gabby one the gold being a racist act is a stretch. That show is one of the new ones that’s going to premiere this coming fall television season. Of course they’re going to air it. The only people who thought it was racist were sites looking for clicks and people digging to make every little thing into something racist.

    • I respectfully disagree. Given the history of comparing blacks to monkeys, NBC should have picked a better time to show that commercial. Right after Gabby Douglas won was not the time. There was a tape delay, so someone in their studio should have been sensitive to the matter. It was a deplorable decision on their behalf. Though you may disagree with my claim, I am still offended by their decision.
