    I'm sorry. That is not necessarily racist. There is some truth to that. I mean, in boxing, it's obvious that with how many black guys have gotten into boxing in the last 75 years, coupled with how easily white guys cut, it makes it harder for white guys to have a successful career out of it. There are other things behind it too. All races have certain qualities superior to others. The majority of the time black men are the strongest. Asians are the fastest. And white men are the toughest. There all equal, therefore there is nothing to feel bad about. Besides, there are plenty of exceptions to those rules anyway. I am white, and actually have a hint of Native American in me as well, and I don't mind. It's not a blunder on our race. The individual races just have their specialties. I mean, it's a proven fact that black men are much better sprinters than white men, but that white men can keep higher speeds longer. That does not bother me.

    EXACTLY WHAT IN THE HECK WAS RACIST ABOUT THAT? I'D LOVE TO MEET KLOMPTON 2 OUT ON THE STREET SOMETIME, NOT TO NECESSARILY WHIP HIS ASS, JUST TO GIVE EM THEY OPPORTUNITY TO SAY SOME OF THE THINGS HE'S SAID TO ME ON 24 AND SAY TO MY FACE. HE IS A "WEB WARRIOR ' IN OTHER WORDS. Seems to be an epidemic on boxing 24, they would rather insult then talk boxing..

    i'd be called racist 4 saying whites were better in sports, or anything 4that matter! People ought to drop this racist **** right now! But u know they won't. White people cut easier! Asians are faster? WTF? I'll say one thing though, and don't nobody call me sexist, but women boxers are the prettiest!

    It's true, white people, as a general rule, have thinner skin, and that's why it is easier to cut and reopen over and over again in fights. Asians have been proven to be the fastest as well. Haven't you ever watched Bruce Lee or anything like that? Asians are smaller, therefore they are faster. It's basic stuff.

    You know actually, the ethnicities of the divisions proves what I'm saying. Everybody knows lightweights, featherweights, bantamweights, and flyweights will be much faster than heavyweights. Duh, right? Who fills up the four smallest divisions? Asians. But those guys don't have a lot of power. Who has more power? The middleweights, the light heavyweights, the heavyweights. Who mainly occupies those divisions? Not Asians. Black men.

    I won't call you sexist. Don't call me rascist. I don't think what I'm saying is rascist at all. Now if someone were to come out and say, " X race has been proven to be smarter than X race." then I'd blow my top.

    Although I started this whole thing, I think we should either stop the conversation, or go to PMs because I think we should quit this conversation before it attracts any more members or maybe the mods.

    I didn't say u did, but I should have clarified. Ig what I round did sound kind of angry, but I wasn't. I was dumb to even bring the subject up. I just thought it might encourage ronnyrains. What a dumb idea. This has nothing to do with boxing. Oh well. No offense here. None meant ur way either. I'm not a racist. I love black men, and white men, and Asians and Hispanics and Native Americans all the same.
