Interesting, though sad. 4 gold medals at the 1936 Olympics and then this:

I'll watch the video when I get a chance, but from a documentary I've seen, being snubbed was the least of his problems. Post-Olympics left him little opportunity for various reasons (not the least of which was being black). As I recall, he felt humiliated at having to race horses.

Nobody thinks that Hitler "snubbed" Jesse Owens. They think that Jesse Owens humiliated the Nazis, Hitler included, by being of an "inferior" race and yet defeating their very best. This is undeniable.

It's common knowledge that, by today's standards, Owens was indeed snubbed by his own country's leaders. At the time, he was treated like any other "colored" celebrity.

Oh, and by the way, the President who snubbed him was a Democrat.

As to Obama, about that time the British Eugenics program was in full swing in Kenya.

And we built the best leader your country has ever seen :)

Anyway, having to go through the kitchen and use a service elevator to go to the Olympics party is awful. Jesse Owens was hardly inferior and they could see that.

this is wrong.

Truth:

Nazis admired negroes for their athletic abilities and robust bodies. That they survived in the hellhole of the planet - USA.

Intellectual they were seen as inferior of course.

But a pure blooded negroe? Nothing wrong with that.

Bastards - now that was a BIG problem for them. In their view negroe/aryan hybrids would combine white bodies with negroe brains.
So they were a lot against that.
Also they were fans of keeping the blood pure - every blood. So cross breeding was always a big no no.
