Those people hating on Floyd Mayweather, Jr are hypocrites and pawns of corrupt corporations. Pimped to the world as a villain who beats his wife, slapped his teacher, punched his girlfriend, talked back to his mom, can’t read, arrogant, says he is the greatest, they don’t like him, says he is going to bailout Suge Knight, an animal and he is black. For those reasons they want Manny Pacquiao to publicly humiliate him, is Manny man enough?
I respect Floyd Mayweather, Jr, a real man who unlike Tiger Woods does not see how he owes any apologies for his life or to publicly humiliate himself in the process. He is a man who is not defined by money. When a man has paid for his mistakes there is the implied expectation that he moves on with his life not be double jeopardized.
Lights camera and action the stage is set to take away Floyd’s livelihood just because the media says so, so like the Klan they carry their crosses to burn on his front lawn. These same people are busy trying to prove Bill Cosby date raped 200 women in 40 years.
Black people are enslaved in violent occupations like American football and boxing exposing them to brain injuries, then are expected to be graceful as ballet dancers. American corporate media play to the emotions of the public with trick photography of it is not okay to hit women but perfectly okay to hit men at their workplace or home.
I met Floyd Mayweather, Jr a few years back hanging after-hours with my homeboy Tony Woods at the W Hotel in Washington, DC. His reputation of arrogance is bogus, at 2:30am he was more than cordially with us, I remember Tony having long conversations and joking with him. I did not know who he was, unlike when I saw Mike Tyson at Carlos and Charlie’s on Sunset Blvd in the 80’s, all I saw was this little guy who had big guys protecting him until Tony Woods pulled my coat. – @OgbeniAyotunde
