    No female African American Pro Cyclists

    I assume this is also true for MTB'g, but I don't know that...

    Under what guideline were you granted the ability to silence his opinion about an article that was a violation of said guidelines?

    Can't say I am debating the guidelines. However, I would ask how your post of a wholly slanted article complies with guidelines. To me, it violates 3 out of 7 of them. Namely, 1,2 and 7.

    And I only asked a question rather than throw out insults like Lynx, above this post.

    Now back to the article, I hope Ayesha succeeds in her goal. She's a great example of hard work and determination that I can point to as I raise my daughters to be strong and resilient. I also hope she is chasing it for internal reasons rather the external ones. I am not sure she is based on her quote, "People will say, ‘Whats big deal?’ And, ‘I don’t see color.’ And that’s why I do it,” McGowan says. “It’s a privilege to not see color. People have to be aware, because discrimination and microaggressions are a thing. I’m not making it up.” It's a choice to not see color and to value someone simply for being themselves. That kind of divisive language perpetuates stereotypes, discrimination, prejudice, sexism and racism.
