Journalists often exaggerate the sporting achievements of negroids in a manner that suggests their superiority over Whites. Racial guilt, political correctness, reverse racism, an opportunity for career advancement; call it what you will, it is evil and sinister. Typical are the distortions woven around the 1936 Berlin Olympics. This international event is usually mentioned as the Olympics at which the American Negro, Jesse Owens, 'humiliated Nazi Germany and destroyed the myth of Aryan superiority.' What are the true facts?
Jesse Owens, a fine athlete, was an American, a country whose racism would have made a stormtrooper blush. The contrast between the two countries would have been quite remarkable for this humble and likeable ex-cotton picker.
In Hitler's Germany Jesse Owens could share a bus or tram ride with white people. Treated equally before the law he could visit a cinema or church with whites, use public toilets and dine in restaurants, stay in hotels without any discrimination being shown towards him. There was much that he could do in The Third Reich that was forbidden to him back home.
In the United States Negro athletes were required to eat apart from their white fellow athletes. If they were allowed to share the same hotel at all, which was unlikely, it would be necessary for them to use the tradesmen's back entrance.
There were no Negroes on any major league baseball team and no Negro swimmers. This was of course in the so-called enlightened north. In the southern states there was no possibility of a Negro being allowed to participate in any sport unless he competed solely with other Negroes.
OWENS IDOLISED IN NAZI GERMANY
For Jesse Owens his days in Hitler's Germany must have been happy indeed. There he received a great deal of pre-Olympic media hype and the German people idolised him. "Once at the stadium, the mere appearance of Jesse Owens neatly moulded head from some pit below the stands would cause sections of the crowd to break out in chants of, 'Yes-sa Ov-enss! Yes-sa Ov-enss!' - Richard D. Mandell. The Nazi Olympics
"Some mornings at the Olympic village the athletic hero of the hour was awakened by amateur photographers who flocked outside his bedroom window to click at the athlete before he could gather poise for one of his many appearances before the mobs in Berlin." - Richard D. Mandell. The Nazi Olympics
"Jesse Owens was cheered as loudly as any Aryan."- Lawrence N. Snyder; Jesse's coach. Saturday Evening Post. Nov,7th, 1936.
THE HITLER SNUB MYTH
One of many common myths invented and re-cycled by British journalists is that at the 'Nazi Olympics', the German leader snubbed Jesse Owens by refusing to shake his hand. The reality is far different. Hitler on the first day of the Berlin Olympics did indeed shake the hands of several successful competitors from Germany and Finland. It was a mistake made in good faith. That evening the German Chancellor received a message from Count Baillet-Latour, President of the International Olympic Committee. It was respectfully pointed out to the German Leader that as he was merely a guest of honour at the Games, he should congratulate all - or none, in public at least. Adolf Hitler, in common with all other national leaders chose the latter as being the most sensible course. With 156 gold medals being awarded at various locations and times, it was not physically possible to congratulate every winner. Jesse Owens was not personally congratulated by Adolf Hitler; nor were any of the other successful competitors, white or otherwise .... at the request of the President of the I.O.C.
REJECTED BY HIS OWN PRESIDENT
It is interesting to note however that Jesse Owens own President Roosevelt refused to honour or even meet him despite there being no such protocol restriction imposed upon him. But afterwards, Jesse Owens said of Adolf Hitler : "When I passed the Chancellor he arose, waved his hand at me, and I waved back at him. I think the writers showed bad taste in criticising the man of the hour in Germany."
OWENS IN RACIST RIP-OFF ENGLAND
Afterwards, Owens and his coach, Larry Snyder on arrival in London complained that they felt like 'trained seals'. They were subjected to a barrage of 'fraudulent publicity offers', so much so that they refused further engagements. Time proved Larry Snyder and Jesse Owens right. None of the offers came to anything but big name Jewish promoters like Eddy Cantor had received a great deal of favourable publicity.
TREATED LIKE A FREAK IN USA
Back home in the United States, Jesse Owens was treated like a freak and an animal. "Before curious crowds he raced horses (and won). He ran against cars, trucks, dogs, and baseball players with a head start." Norman Katkov. Jesse Owens Revisited. The World of Sport, p.289.
His was a thirties America that had seen 26 lynchings - all Negroes; an America where Negroes had to use separate public toilets and public transport; went to all-black schools, and couldn't mix with white people in restaurants, cinemas, hotels, church, stadiums, etc. Hitler's Germany and the German people must have seemed very welcoming by contrast.
WHITE GERMANY 101 MEDALS MIXED RACE U.S.A 49
With a population three times as big as Germany’s Hitler's Germany won a total of 101 medals (41 gold) and 223 points. Their only credible rival was the United States which though three times more populous won 40% fewer medals and points: 25 gold medals (4 to Jesse Owens) and just 132 points. The U.S.A's size and its reliance on coloured athletes added to its humiliation which in fact justified Hitler's claim of Aryan superiority in the field of sport - which it still enjoys.
Hitler's Germany won more gold medals than the United States, Great Britain, India, Canada, Argentina, France, and Norway together whose combined population was 14 times larger than Germany's.
