    To be clear, he didn't get fired for what he said; he got fired for refusing to back off those comments. I don't think he should have gotten in trouble for them, either, but you can't be that defiant to your employer when ultimately you are replaceable.

    If Showtime has a policy that its on-air talent isn't allow to make generalizations based on race, then he has to abide by that to keep his job.

    They wanted him to apologise for speaking some very mild racial truth in response to a certain boxer who was complaining about his hardships despite being wealthier than every professor in every university on the globe. Showtime is a lib corporation and couldn't be seen aligned with truth in an age of lies. Paul refused to say sorry and lost his job.
    He claims he had a good legal case against them but due to BLM and Trump v Biden election, wouldn't have had a chance of winning in the courts and would have been witchhunted etc.
    That also seems like a good analysis on his part.

    It was dumb. He tried to use haney not getting trouble for saying "white boy" proved that racial prejudice doesn't exist.

    That's extremely dumb.

    He got canceled for one of the few sensible remarks he's ever made.

    I love Chuck, but he's pretty ignorant sometimes.

    I miss Paulie's commentary. He was probably my favorite analyst. Had the boxing knowledge and was fairly articulate. Much better than Tim Bradley and Sergio Mora. I also like Ward's commentary.

    Charles is black and can get away with it. Paulie got the axe for nothing.

    Boxings loss as far as I'm concerned. He was one of the best boxer commentators out there. Great analysis with superb explanation. I heard he was gonna start a podcast with that other truther, Teddy Atlas...

















    Not really, but I had ya going didn't I!

    Right, he basically stated that because boxing is now an international sport we should expect people from all walks of life, ethnic, and racial backgrounds to be achieving. I'm trying to understand how that's controversial.

    He spit some fairly objective realness which hurt the feelings of about four people on Twitter.
