they outlawed this move just because she was the only woman who could do it. 
Surya Bonaly was infamous for (among other things) doing aone blade backflip in the 1998 Olympics, and is the ONLY figure skater who’s ever pulled that off. Not just the only woman, the only figure skater PERIOD. There’s like all ofthree Olympic-class male skaters who did backflips in their routines, and NONE of them could do it one blade.
But wait, there’s more.
Backflips were banned from the 1976 Olympics onward on the official justification that skating jumps are supposed to be landed on one blade, whereas backflips are landed on both blades. The unofficial justification was it was too dangerous, both to the athlete and to the rink — if you didn’t land it perfectly, you could not only break your ankle, but also punch THROUGH the ice surface.
Surya Bonaly was openly contemptuous of the figure skating judges, because they were a bunch of openly racist white men who always screwed her over by giving her lower scores than she deserved. That one-blade backflip was her ultimate FUCK YOU! to the Olympics judges, because she took an “illegal” backflip and made it legal by landing it on one blade. Pretty much DARING them to mark her down for being epic awesome and pulling a move that their precious coddled white girls didn’t have the guts to even think about.
They did, of course. White racism knows no bounds. But she utterly owned them with that move.
not only did she do a fucking backflip and land, she landed then went right into a triple loop. like holy fuck

Damn son I ain’t seen shit like that.

jesus i wonder how proud she must have felt walking off stage though. 👏

HISTORY ACCORDING TO TUMBLR

white people are responsible for every foul deed ever done. White people are the devil and people of color literally did nothing wrong EVER.

"people are talking about the side of history I wasn’t taught in school and it makes me uncomfortable to be presented with facts"

HISTORY ACCORDING EVERY OTHER PART OF LIFE:

White people were the originators of everything, everyone else was inferior, Black people were only slaves

True

Smh… Their history alone should make you not want to be helped by them…
Got that ??

It amaze me the way some people listen to the media specially my African brothers/ sisters. Every time the media catches a cold, they sneeze. The whole year they have no opinion regarding politics or any sensitive subject, but as soon as the media pushes anything for example the Palestinians struggle…. Ooowwiiiii everybody becomes an activists & specialist on the subject depending on how long it will stay on the mainstream, but they can’t even post a word about what’s happening in their home country. Palestinians were introduced to hell in the late 1940s, but Africa was dragged into hell from around some 400+ yeas ago…. Charity start at home.
I trust nobody who doesn’t love the SELF first cuz if you can’t love yourself, hell!! You can’t love anybody !

Just an observation

The Cola Road (2013)

This is true, go into any Afrikan nation and you will surely find in most cities and villages Coca-Cola products, bottles and caps everywhere but the people are suffering from sickness and diseases brought o by the previous colonization.

Same with México and El Salvador.

I received a txt saying “We are having a prayer & fasting meeting next week in my church to pray for peace in the DR Congo & in Africa, & I’d be glad if you can make it since you’re so concerned about the continent. What do you think?”.

I had tears in my eyes, & I asked myself if she was aware that in the Eastern part of the DR Congo the majority of our sister, mother, father & brother are Christians? She doesn’t think they prayed to come out alive from that mess?

Unfortunately she asked me what I thought of it… “Waste of time! If you want peace you prepare for war, but if you don’t want war… Remove the word peace from your vocabulary”.
It’s not prayers that keeps the Palestinians alive. It’s individuals on different levels of life dedicated their time some to inform people about what’s going on & they put the information right in your face, some organize & put money together then use the power of economic to try to influence things in certain ways, some physically go on the ground & try to help there ect… People on many level.

In the 60s it’s not prayers that helped African countries to gain independence it was all sorts of struggle throughout the continent political struggle, wars struggle, art struggle, life struggle all sorts of struggle were touched just for freedom & a freedom which the majority of those who stood up for it, haven’t even tasted the fruits of their work Patrice Lumumba, Steve Biko, Amílcar Cabral, Dedan Kimathi, Marcus Garvey, Sekou Touré, Thomas Sankara, Kwame Nkrumah, Kwame Toure, & many more… They had a vision, they stood up right, sensibilize the people, organized then centralized… In fact if it was just for prayers we’ll still be in chains
