Sprinting sensation Usain Bolt has already captured the attention of the world through his performances in the 100M sprint at the 2012 London Olympic Games. However, it is his personal life that had recently come under fire; by his own Jamaican locals.
Prior to his now highly-publicized breakup with Lubica Slovak, it was reported that the star Olympic athlete had faced some serious racial scrutiny for his decision to date out of his race. New information on the details of the demised relationship has now surfaced.

George Parker wrote: "I have always known that there is something not right about Bolt, now i can see what it is, he is a dam jackass. one minute he made us proud and the other, he makes all black people ashamed, I wonder where the balance lies with the proud or the ashamed, I opt for the latter."
However, an individual who identified himself by the name of "Better JA," did defend Bolt's relationship choice.
"People, people, what's with all these racial comments?? can't you look at the picture and only see a man kissing a woman? that's all it is and should be. i can understand the "sour grape" comments from the females but certainly not the racist ones. we can't demand equality from other races when we have these impediments in our head. BREATHE, STRETCH, LET IT GO!!"
Bolt will be competing Wednesday, August 8th in the Men's 200-Meter Semi finals. Coverage begins today at 3:10 P.M. EST.
