Does this dude look like a standard-issue "American" to you ? :
Not once in their 2014 Boston Marathon coverage, do the swine at the Times even hint that this year's Bean Town Marathon winner was born in Eritrea, east Africa, and thus is a member of the same negroid-persian ethnic group that has been dominating US-organized marathons for close to thirty years.
To report it any other way, as in "US-based East-African asylum grantee Meb Kefle-whatevuh, won the Boston Marathon on Saturday, proving once again that east Africans are genetically pre-disposed to certain endeavors..." , would be to violate the Times' own noxious head-in-the-sand worldview , wherein race is just a social construct.
The vermin at the New York Times will have their just desserts any day now. Let us hope that it is sooner rather than later.
