When [Kelli] Stack wasn’t pedaling madly around Sochi on a one-woman mission to feed the animals, she was busy working out on the ice or hanging out in her room, emailing back and forth with a local shelter. When Stack had heard other athletes were adopting some of the strays in the Olympic village, she immediately decided to do so as well. Surprisingly, it wasn’t too difficult.

“For I am my mother’s daughter, and the drums of Africa still beat in my heart. They will not let me rest while there is a single Negro boy or girl without a chance to prove his worth.”   – Mary McCleod Bethune (1875 - 1955) was an author, educator, and civil rights pioneer.  The daughter of former slaves, she founded the school that eventually became Bethune-Cookman University, served in FDR’s “Black Cabinet”, and became known as “The First Lady of The Struggle."   She purchased a house in Washington D. C., next-door to the national headquarters of the Daughters of the Confederacy and The Mary McCleod Bethune Council House is now a National Historic Site and museum.

Every girl is expected to have caucasian blue eyes, full Spanish lips, a classic button nose, hairless Asian skin with a California tan, a Jamaican dance hall butt, long Swedish legs, small Japanese feet, the abs of a lesbian gym owner, the hips of a nine-year-old boy, and the arms of Michelle Obama. The only person close to actually achieving this look is Kim Kardashian, who, as we know, was made by Russian scientists to sabotage our athletes. Everyone else is struggling.
