    y'all the real racists. When I saw that photo I saw Ellen complimenting a former guest on her show and the biggest star in athletics.

    What y'all saw was a white woman on the back of a black man. If she had chosen Phelps, which she didn't because you run errands not swim them, all would have been fine right? But because the fastest man on earth happens to be black, you found something to be outraged about and something you can take your little self importance to twitter about to get some attention.

    Pathetic.

    I'm sure if a white person just breathed too heavily near a black person they would be accused of racism. "Trying to steal black people's air".

    My favorite comment was along the lines of 'I wasn't offended till someone showed me images taken a hundred years ago that shows a little white girl riding on the back of her black nanny - now I am!'
