I saw the headlines and ESPN reporting about a Floyd Mayweather Jr. racist rant directed at Manny Pacquiao and Asians, but I failed to see anything racist about the video.
Floyd was just trash talking and acting like his usual self. He was joking around with some buddies and UStream followers. If you don’t understand the black culture or come from the hood, you will never understand certain things.
I’m African-American and I grew up in the hood, and this is something that goes on, on the regular. Floyd is just a product of his environment. In the hood, you talk a lot of trash, you either got the swag or you don’t got the swag. The UStream channel has videos of Floyd showing off his cash and flossing. All I saw was a young black man having a good time with his boys and enjoying himself. Sure, the language was vulgar, but like I said, Floyd is a product of his environment, look at his pops and Uncle Roger Mayweather, they both cuss and talk rough.
Watch the video for yourself, and if you can watch it with an open mind and not be biased, you can see that the media and the haters are blowing this out of proportion. They just love to hate this man.
Floyd Mayweathers racist rant video on YouTube (supposedly its racist)
Now let’s break down the supposed racist Mayweather rant video:
Floyd called Manny Pacquiao “Poochiao”, funny nickname, but not racist.
Mayweather said, he would cook that yellow chump — not racist, could mean yellow as in coward or chicken scared.
Mayweather said, Pacquiao would make him some Sushi and rice — not racist at all, rice is a staple food in Asian countries, and for Sushi maybe Floyd likes Japanese food?
Mayweather said, something about eating or feeding him cats and dogs — not racist, Many Asian areas, especially the poorer third world areas eat cats, dogs and even rats.
Mayweather said, Pacquiao can’t speak no English — not racist, Pacquiao actually speaks good English for a guy who has a third grade education, but maybe Floyd meant Manny Pacquiao can’t speak “Understand” English, that is why he signed two contracts.
Mayweather said, Pacquiao was taking them “Power Pellets,” — Floyd could be referring to anything, how could people assume he is talking about steroids? Maybe he is taking some creatine supplements from GNC or some fancy energy pills?
The only offensive terms used were towards homosexuals (F@ggot) and little people (midget), if Floyd Mayweather issues an apology it should only be for those two groups of people, he doesn’t have to apologize to Asians or Manny Pacquiao.
