I hope not.

Kevin Krigger should be recognized as a good jockey, and if his horse wins the Kentucky Derby, part of an elite group.

However I can just see the left calling him "horse racings Jackie Robinson".

We shall see if the left has matured and learned to see people according to their character and accomplishments, rather than by their skin color.

WEll he would be the first black jockey to win since 1902 so I would imagine everyone will make a big deal of it. Even ignorant rednecks.

I'm surprised the left isn't demanding that his horse be allowed to start a few seconds early just to make things "fair".

Little known fact - in the first Kentucky Derby in 1875, 15 horses ran the race.

13 of the jockey's were black men.

What's your opinion of synchronized swimming, curling, golf, marathon snowmobile racing and competitive eating?

If he wins I wonder if Fox News will mention he is black? If they do what will people think?
