Default Has anybody noticed this shit??

I was looking thru my new edition of The Ring and looking thru the article about contender I couldn't help but notice something startling.
In the mag, it shows the crowd for Contender on 3 sides of the ring for the Codrington fight and upon a close look there is not ONE black person in the crowd. (other than Codringtons family seated right by the gold team. Just wondering and I will pay attention to the unedited version tonight to see if the crowd for the other bouts are different.
BTW, I am white, and this bothered me.

It said in the article the crowd had been wined and dined by a fine caterer and were pretty much coached on how to act on the set. Seriously, I can't find one black person in the whole crowd.

I'm just kidding around. I have never noticed to be honest. I'm sure there has to be more than just J Don's family somewhere.

Alright sorry about my last post then, but I got a good goddamn picture of the entire crowd on 3 sides and be damn if there is even 1. All I'm sayin is there indeed should be (more than just Jaidon's family in the house for a boxing event. I assure you that in the 3 sides of the ring they show there is not even 1.

And as I stated in my first post this is just the crowd for the first bout (Codrington vs Vera). Maybe on the latest episodes it's different but I will now be sure as hell paying attention.

That's interesting I don't think I ever noticed one way or another.

Usually they show the guy, his team, his girl, and Ray Leonard. I should be more attentive.

Me too. I would have never noticed if not for the full page shots in the Ring Magazine of the crowd. Not really sure why it caught my attention even then, but once I noticed I was blown away and thought it worth sharing with you guys.

Not quite sure what the hell you're getting at here. Are you assuming the show is racist? That they only cater to the white folks? What exactly are you saying the problem is?

Well maybe to most it may not be a problem, no I don't think the show is racist, but you don't find it odd that there is not a more diverse crowd on hand? The only thing I'm getting at is the ENTIRE crowd is white, tell me how many boxing events are like that? IF you guys think this is normal and not at all a little odd, then please by all means: MODS please delete this thread.
And BTW I'm not assuming shit, I have 2 full shot pages of the crowd and can plainly see what I've said, I don't know what it means but I found it odd, nothing more-nothing less.

ATTENTION MODERATORS: Please delete this thread as no one seems to agree that this is out of the ordinary and obviously I'm crazy.
