If this is truly what you've done to better your life Ken then good for you.
Certainly I am in no position to comment on racism in America because I am a white man from New Zealand. However from afar there seem to be many black sports stars and celebrities who are much loved in America. Shoot do you remember who loved Tyson was pre-Buster Douglas and Don King? The guy was universally praised as the shit.
And look at the retrospective love he is getting now.
Floyd is disliked because he chose a certain villian persona (although I'm begining to wonder who far he is removed from that persona.) If I take the guys that post on this board, the Americans that is, as broad representation of America then it seems to me that they support fighters that seem like decent human beings and rag on the one(s) that act like dicks.
No doubt Ken there are some people that don't like Floyd because he is coloured but I think you'd be surprised at the amount of people that don't like him for the single fact that he is a cocky arrogant prick.
I am worried about your wife apparently having nuts though
I know what you meant but I think we can agree that you could've made it a bit clearer, haha.
Yea he is, when it's time to build that fight
Unfortunately it pulls in the big crowds the big bucks, but you give up your image in return
after the fight he shows nothing but the up most respect, he acts like he did before he became a household name.
An i think now at his career he's trying, taking on these guys people want to see, standig in front of guys etc
Yea I could of wrote it better but yea she attempts to act like a guy with her bad english lol
Even though we disagree on somethings i respect your opinions an enjoy reading your comebacks
There not meaningless like pactards.
As for the guys that play sports, i see them as nothing more then circus talent
MOST have no clue...look at King James
I could of did sports, thats what most black men are told to strive for
however when it comes to education an a career an these big name companies
Thats when you see the stereotype come out an thus the reason im in another country.
