"Naitanui bursts from the contest with mundane strength and gives it to Kelly who explodes away from two opponents at a conventional tempo..."

LOL

"He's a very generically powerful and pacey player" "Bolton bursts from the pack in a non-racially specific way"

I wasn't aware that "cakewalk" was a racial reference, but given it's in Collingwood's song it doesn't surprise me

yeah, I only heard this a few weeks ago.

"a dancing contest among black Americans in which a cake was awarded as a prize. " Not sure how the term then became a term for something that's deemed to be easy.

The solution may be to ask african-americans/blacks to stop trying in athletic events. We'd get a mix of winners, perhaps even some anglo winners. And blacks are over represented at the highest level of NFL & NBA. Maybe have to look at some preferential policies to get more whites into the teams.
