Re: Did Louis Draw The Color Line Line Johnson
Well, during his first championship years, i.e. 37-42, there were not THAT many black contenders that stood out if i remember correct. Most started getting high profile during the war, and when Louis came back from his duty, he fought the #1 contender who was black, so i don't really think there's a strong case of him avoiding those challengers. He may have missed a few, but you can't fight everyone.
