Default Re: Care to speculate on what may have been different for these guys if they were white?

You can make a case for Ali and Langford having significantly different careers, but not Byrd.
The whole white hope thing had died out by then, and even if a guy's white, he has to be exciting or at least somewhat entertaining.
Byrd was one of the worst and most boring champions ever to wear the strap.
