Default Re: Did jack Johnson drew a color line himself?

The short answer is no.

He simply drew the Langford line and the money line.

There are three scenarios in it when a champion fails to meet tha top balck challenger:

A. Champion has a stance that he will not meet a black contender in principle.

B. Champion wishes to avoid a dangerous challenger who happens to be black.

C. Champion either has no viable black contender, or is unable to reach suitable terms with one.

I would define champions who took position A as having drawn the colour line, while I would judge Johnson to be a mixture of B and C.
