It seems fitting. Lewis Hamilton, the first black man to take a pole postion in Formula 1 racing is the odds on favourite to win the Montreal Grand Prix today. Hamilton has been billed the Tiger Woods of Formula 1 racing.
In a country that has long been the standard bearer of ethnicity and multi-culturalism, Canada would seem to be right place at the right time for this major breakthrough in a purely dominated whiteman's sport.
Good luck on your success today young Lewis. We're all cheering for you.
