U.S. Eh?


I wonder if people from other countries are confused when they watch the Olympics and see that a large majority of American athletes are black?

They know our politicians. They know our Hollywood stars. And then they watch track and field, and basketball contests being dominated by Americans who largely look nothing like these people.

So, in all cases except China, as they're likely upset by American athletic dominance that overshadows their own, don't they have to be slightly intrigued by the apparent melting pot of American awesomeness?
