Since the time of great Melanoid boxers like Tom Molineaux and Jack Johnson, the sport of boxing has always had a racial under current that attracts and intrigues fans.
In the time leading up to the record breaking Mayweather vs Pacquiao bout that took place in Las Vegas this weekend,many non-Melanoid boxing fans and media representatives were suspected of using code words and smoke screens to hide their racial hatred for Mayweather. Many people were bringing up issues about Mayweather that had nothing to do with the fight like his past domestic violence charges,that he has already served time for.
Many of these people tried to deny that there were racial undertones to their criticism. But after Mayweather won the fight with Pacquiao, many of these same sports fans stopped using code words and they took to twitter to express how they really felt about Mayweather and Black people in general:
Even many Hispanic twitter users got in on the racist action by using derogatory epithets for Black people like “Mayate” (which is a Black dung beetle in the literal term)
Many Asian and Filipino fight fans got in on the racist twitter comments by using terms like “Nognog” (which is basically the Pinoy word for “Nigger”) and “Sunog” (a Filipino word used to degrade dark skinned people, which means “burned”)
The word “Nigger” was tweeted by thousands of twitter users during the #MayPac fight. Hashtag charts showed the timeline of the word nigger on twitter and how it peaked directly after it was announced that Mayweather was the winner.
So how do you feel about not only the white supremacists who spewed their racism about Mayweather, but all of these other so-called “minority” groups that Black people are supposed to have this shared camaraderie with,who displayed the same racist views about Black people as the white supremacists?
