Oh, dear:

France’s Christophe Lemaitre became the first white man to run the 100 meters in under 10 seconds when he clocked 9.98 on Friday, the French athletics federation said.

Lemaitre, 20, set his time during the French championships in Valence, southern France.

“He is the first white man to run the 100 meters in less than 10 seconds,”Jean-Philippe Manzelle, French athletics Federation press officer, told Reuters.

This is self-evidently Wrong and Teh Bad, but at least it reminds me of this, so I can laugh through the screaming.
