The sports world would have missed out on some of the best athletes in the world if the white man had not overcome their bias toward white people.

Have the Olympics improved race relations?

Yes, it has. Since the Black Power Salute in 1968 a lot of improvements have been made. Blacks are allowed to compete in the same races and whites, The fastest man in the world is black and a lot of young people respect and idolize some of the black athletes that competed in the Olympics. And if I white child idolized a black athlete back in the 1960's their parents would be disgusted and they would probably be taking to prison or something stupid. But now everyone is equal and treated the same and I think that that has a lot to be said for it. So yes the Olympics have improved race relations.
