In the world of political correctness, it is only right if someone black does it.

Alot of people think it's racist if a white guy roots for a white guy over a black guy, even if it has nothing to do with race.

But a black guy can openly root for the white guy to be KO'ed just because he's white, and it is not considered racist at all.

It's considered racist if you even dare think the black guy is racist for doing it tho.

So, you're saying that you're a white supremacist?
