I’m not going to hold my tongue any longer. I am getting sick of all this Floyd Mayweather hate! Let’s not kid ourselves, a lot of people hate on Floyd because of the color of his skin. Let’s not hide this injustice any longer.
Floyd Mayweather has stated numerous times that he’s a proud American who represents the red, white, and blue. But that still isn’t good enough, because he’s a rich, opinionated black man and a lot of Americans hate when a black man speaks his mind. It’s okay for people to write articles calling Floyd Mayweather a racist, coward, woman beater, but if a guy like Manny Pacquiao cheats on his wife, people will say “he is only human we all make mistakes.” Double standards like this are disgusting. So when Floyd Mayweather contradicts himself the media and public slam him as a liar, but when Manny Pacquiao avoids taking drug tests and keeps switching his story if he will take the test or not, people attack Mayweather for even asking for the tests and call him a ducker. Why would you attack a man who is asking for a simple drug test to be on an even playing field?
Let’s talk about this Mayweather vs. Ortiz controversy. Victor Ortiz is the one who should have been disqualified for that intentional headbutt, but when Floyd Mayweather decides to get some payback, people start crying foul. How come nobody is getting pissed off with that crap that Ortiz did to Floyd? Instead they are booing Floyd for retaliating. I don’t know bout you but if a man did me dirty like that I’m gonna hit him back dirty, sucker punch or not, Floyd was justified after what Victor shamelessly did and the rule states “PROTECT YOURSELF AT ALL TIMES.”
If Manny “Pacman” Pacquiao aka America’s sweetheart and he ain’t even American, were in Floyd’s shoes and he hit a fighter when he wasn’t looking because that fighter gave him an intentional headbutt, the whole audience would be cheering! and chanting “that’s what you get! good job Manny, hit that dirty fighter back!” They would be all in support of Pacquiao if he did what Floyd did to Ortiz. In fact, Manny actually hit Juan Manuel Marquez when he was down holding on to the ropes in their first fight, Manny should have been disqualified by Joe Cortez after that intentional illegal punch, even Roy Jones Jr. got disqualified for hitting Montell Griffin when he was down.
Watch for yourself: 2004 Pacquiao vs. Marquez round 1 when Manny knocks down Marquez 3 times and hits him when he is down
People want to boo Floyd for telling Larry Merchant the truth, but they are okay with the old man threatening to kick Floyd’s ass? What Floyd said to Larry Merchant was from the heart, Floyd never gets his just due, Larry is a known Manny Pacquiao fan and a Floyd Mayweather basher.
Mayweather is right, Pacquiao can come to America make millions of dollars and give all his money to the poor people in his country and still get love, but when Floyd gives sandwiches and food to the homeless or throws money to AMERICANS in night clubs and strip clubs, nobody recognizes it. Floyd gives money back to American citizens, yet they wanna praise a Filipino guy who has never donated a dime to an American charity.
Why are Americans supporting a guy who is saying “I love you Philippines,” but not a guy saying “I love America?” Answer that.
