Re: Did jack Johnson drew a color line himself?
were the TOP contenders black?
did he avoid them?
if the answers are yes, then he may not have drawn the colour line. but he may well have avoided the best fighters (who happened to be black)
i don't think mendonza is wrong but may come on a little strong. i don't care how high johnson is regarded: his ranking is reflected by his dominance pre-title. but that doesn't forgive him avoiding the best contenders (if he did). his title reign should be criticized and analyzed same as anyone else
