I’ve been trying to think of what Lance Armstrong’s Black Jersey demonstration reminded me of.
At first I thought it was like the Black Power head-down, raised-fist moment from the 1968 Mexico Olympics.
But that’s giving LA a little too much credit.
Then it hit me. It’s more like Marlan Brando and “Sacheen Littlefeather.”
If one doesn’t like it when actors use the Oscar podium as a bullhorn, one should probably find this a bit distasteful too. Probably.
