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?

Saying Floyd represents black men is terrible and just wrong. It isn't factually correct.

Floyd is what he is. He is an amazing fighter with supreme dedication and discipline towards his craft. He is also a small, little man with little or no discipline in the rest of his life. I blame it more on his father and family structure. he had a miserable father and no family structure so he ended up being the joke of a man that he is today. What real man beats the mother of his children in front of those children? Seriously? I just can't respect someone like that. I have supreme respect for Floyd as a fighter, but no respect towards him as a man. It's just who he is at this point in his life. Hopefully he can get his act together b/c he does have a few kids he needs to look after and he needs to become a far better role model for them, otherwise he runs the risk of having them turn out to be the man (or lack of one) that he has turned out to be.

What I will say is the lack of respectful adult fathers in the African-American community is a MAJOR problem. It is a HUGE issue that I wish would be taken more seriously.
