Sports journalism has received some rough scores a week into the Olympic games in Rio.
Coverage has been criticized as being a bit sexist or racially insensitive.
What struck the greater chord with me were the celebratory, post-spell-breaking moments when two interracial couples are revealed: Once human again, Madame de Garderobe (Audra Mc Donald/the wardrobe) kisses her husband, Cadenza (Stanley Tucci/the harpsichord); then Lumière (Ewan Mc Gregor/the candelabra) kisses Plumette (Gugu Mbatha-Raw/the feather duster).
Look, you didn’t ask, but I’ll tell you anyway: I’m married to a white woman. The fact that we’re an interracial couple is something I’m rarely conscious of in private, but almost always aware of in public – especially in the South, particularly when we get outside of large metropolitan areas.
