Regardless of what you think about his racial comments, Hopkins is a good interviewee and an effective promoter.

Joe acknowledges he doesn't think Hopkins is racist and is aware it is all trash-talk.. at about 2:25 of the video he starts talkin about Hopkins' mind games..

That is why I called him an "effective" promoter instead of a "good" promoter.

I can't talk about individuals, I can only speak in general terms. People are generally going to side with people that they can identify with Sometimes it's by geography, race, religion, whatever. It happens all the time.

that's basically how racist individuals justify their own racism when it comes to boxing.

Hopkins should have saved his explanation until after the fight. Bad blood such as this can only make this fight bigger, no need for damage control yet.

no, I meant what BigReg said is how racist people justify their racism. It's an "everybody does it" mentality. No, not everybody does it. People who do it are ignorant and probably not true fans.
