Macaulay Culkin who was in a music video ‘Black Or White’ with the greatest pop star ever Michael Jackson was at the Olympic pool when history was made in women’s 100m freestyle final.
Simone Manuel of the USA tied for gold becoming the first African-American to win gold in swimming, while Canadian 16 years old Penny Oleksiak became the first Canadian women to win gold in swimming. There time was also a new Olympic record.
Simone Manuel had a few words to say in this emotional evening about being black and she hopes one day it won’t matter what the color of your skin is. The best for me was that you had two skin colors and both sharing gold. We are all equal don’t let anyone tell your different and this is proof in the pool and in the music of Michael Jackson. This is also why we have the Olympics.
“I mean, this medal is not just for me, it’s for a whole bunch of people who have came before me and been an inspiration to me,” she said. “It’s for all the people after me who can’t, who believe they can’t do it. I just want to be an inspiration to others so that you can do it.”
