Default Re: Spencer Fearon post on Facebook?

Was gonna give a proper response to the subject of this thread, having argued many times with Spence however seeing some of the idiots and posts on here I think I'll leave it.
It's like some of you on here don't like the sport and would rather ruin what used to be a fantastic forum instead

Spencer aint a racist imo, just leans to his colour more often than not.
LOL most people in boxing call him 'Brother Nazeem', it's his nickname now. Basically, your premise that he prefers black fighters because they're from his racial background is based on the fact he's a fan of PBF and not Pac. Maybe, and I know this may be a huge stretch for you, he simply prefers pbf's boxing style to pacs? Is that so unbelievable, someone preferring the boxing stylist over the big puncher? Anyway, your theory is based in a sample set of ONE, I hope you can see how re****ed that is.

As for the second comment, I am genuinely gobsmacked. I think you need to look up 'race' in the dictionary. According to you, calling someone 'bignose' would be racist too since you'd be having a pop at their appearance.

Have googled it and checked on the forum but found nothing. Anyone know? Sounds like it was racial, like maybe saying 'people want Groves to win cos he's white'.
This has been on before *****.

Hardly.

It's just highlighting an example of a common theme where Spencer Fearon is concerned.

As for the second paragraph, I think you've been overly picky with his post. He can correct me if I'm wrong, but I think that he's trying to ask why skin colour is any more of an issue than people hurling other insults at each other, whether it be about their weight, hair colour or appearance.

It just seems that some people are (in my opinion) overly precious about racism, and turn a blind eye to issues such as ***ism, ****phobia or whatever.

Is being racist any worse than hating fat people because they're fat?

Or hating gingers because they are ginger? Jews because they're Jewish?

I don't really have a particular view on this, nor do I know anyone that does, but it's a point worth making in my opinion.

Why do you have to call someone a ***** for asking a question to which they don't know the answer? It's a forum, it would be nowhere without questions.

As for what have I done to promote equality in my area.... absolutely **** all, because I don't give a **** about skin colour.... most ''equality'' initiatives only end up promoting positive discrimination anyway.

Perhaps he can name 100 things he's done, but that doesn't stop him making stupid remarks or whatever, does it? Let's not forget, he's got previous in this area too.

You've got a real problem accepting people's opinion if they differ to yours.... something I'd suggest you make an attempt to get over at some stage.

It's crazy how people like him and Bernard Hopkins can get away with saying things like that and people will just over look it.
