Keep Politics Out of Sport

Interesting to hear people who are complaining about the anti-China Olympic protesters use the above phrase. Last time I heard it was when white South Africans were complaining about the sports boycotts in the 1980s. After making a political decision that only white people could play sports, they said, “keep politics out of sport.” The phrase is as absurd now as it was then.
