I for one do not agree that Floyd defines all black men (especially Your's Truly), it is inflammatory articles like these especially by Uncle Tom Negroes who help to continue to perpetuate not only the racial hate black men receive but also the hate towards a man in a sport where persona is perception and perception a reality (for some).

How can this Uncle Ben (Terry Foster) say that Floyd defines us: I've never been to prison, I don't hit women (if that's what he really did) and I haven't fathered children out of wedlock.

Sure Floyd is a great boxer and whatever he was doing to Mrs. Bundrage at that moment doesn't spell out that all of us (black men) would do the same thing. Let's not forget that Mrs. Bundrage did some trash talking to Floyd prior to the fight between K9 and Ishe and in her role as Manager for her husband is why Mayweather retorted in the first place irregardless of his antics; she got back the negative energy she put out.

Now, am I saying that everything was in good taste that Floyd did? No, but given the gravity of the moment and the fight taking place in the ring it applied.

Your thoughts?

Here is the thing, if K-9 didn't demand an apology from Floyd what he did to his wife then really that is on him. Also we can not be chivalric when a woman is not acting as such. If she was talking big shit and acting like a boss, then there are rules to the game. Do I think what he did was wrong? On a certain level of being a gentleman and a man yes, but that business side of me says: FAIR GAME. This writer is a dick. Andre Ward, Chad Dawson and a slue of other boxers are great examples of African American men. Why not highlight them? Like someone mentioned, Floyd came up from the rough side of the mountain he might not be as polished as some us would like. As far as his issues with his children's mother, I have no idea, I do not read into the man's personal life, but by all accounts, he does take care of his children. A lot of sports figures who are balling do not even do that. We can always spot the stains in other people, especially the obvious ones, but we also pick our heroes. Tyson is well beloved now, but not when he ruled boxing, everyone hated the guy. Floyd is Floyd, I love his talent inside the ring, and he is who he is outside. I think this writer should try to write meaningful articles instead of the obvious. He has done some foul shit but he has also done so extraordinary things as well.
