Not that it will take any bread off his dinner table, but being a local philly guy, I’ve always been a fan of Bernard Hopkins. No, he is not spectacular in the Floyd Mayweather sense. However, he is always in top condition, always fights his fight (not the other guys) and is very disciplined.
However, leading up to this last fight, he uttered the words “no white boy will ever beat me”. Imagine if a white man uttered words to the opposite effect? You’d have Sharpton and the Rainbow coalition picketing the fight, demanding his purse, an apology, his first born, etc.
Racism is racism. I don’t care about history and any sense of entitlement to feel a certain way and I don’t want to hear about how dare the white man plead racism. Racism is racism. And as long as it is practiced by any race, it will fuel its return in other races. Black man hate whitey? You can be sure to convert some otherwise neutral whiteys. Whitey hate the black man? Continues to fuel their hatred of us. Anyway, you get the point.
It shouldn’t be tolerated anymore. We should be beyond that. I know we are not. And I don’t mean to start a thread on race. This is a thread about one man and his stupid statement and how it shouldn’t be tolerated.
Maybe if he called us stringy headed crackers we could petition Golden Boy for his termination like they did with Imus.
Bottom line - it shouldn’t be tolerated.
And I was offended.
And the white boy whooped his ass too. Split decision my ass.
