Quit crying double-standard over Phelps

FINALLY!!! Someone who knows what they are talking about! I give the edgy Foxnews Sports columnist James Whitlock a ginormous thumbs up for this article! I'll get it started.......but you definitely have to finish this read!

Don't send me any more e-mails complaining that if Phelps were black, he'd be dropped by his sponsors, locked in a cell next to O.J. Simpson and banned from all international competition.
