The only person that I want to hear talk about Simone Biles

The only person that I want to hear talk about Simone Biles is Simone Biles.
The only person that I want to hear talk about Naomi Osaka is Naomi Osaka.

Even if our intentions are good, even if we’re speaking up in their defense, we are part of the noise. Imagine millions of people talking about, analyzing, your decisions and weighing them with political, racial, and other representations. Constantly. Without you being able to speak for yourself, in defense or affirmation.

Even this post is unnecessary noise.

You are not in traffic, you are traffic.
