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?

People who write or say stuff like that clearly seem, to have self hate issues. Floyd did it and I believe he went too far after repeatedly doing it. But everybody carries a joke too far at one time or another and anyone who says they haven't is a liar. The writer clearly used Floyd's name and status to illustrate his point which in my view discredits him. I really miss true journalism. The internet and websites alike are filled with bloggers. And it's a big difference between bloggers and writers.

I'm a black man and I absolutely hate when someone says WE as if WE are all one in the same. I bet it wouldn't have been WE if Mayweather would've posed for a photo with her and/or carried on a nice convo with her after the fight. It just would've been Floyd, now because something seemingly negative happens, it's we. The hip hop excuse is pretty lame, there's a difference between rap and hip hop and true fans of the genre know that. Hip Hop has nothing to do with that situation and many situations that take place. Those who view it as such are mentally weak IMO.

Everybody's always looking to blame something on, and in many cases with black people, they say it's hip hop. That women being demeaned BS has to stop because it happens in all races. So they got that from hip hop? FOH, people need to stop blaming genres of music for problems because I can;t count on 1 hand how many forms of music white people actually started. The media magnifies what they want to and we know who's behind that machine, this clown is just making it more easier for them to get their ideals across. Media is the new form of slavery for blacks in America
