Dallas Cowboy

Crickets and I'm not surprised.

Brothas went out their to defend Mayweather's gay panic the last few times. And were acting all victorious when he won his last fight. I guess now folks see how he really feels about us.

Derrick from Philly

No, Dallas, we just figure he's ghetto garbage. If it weren't for boxing he'd be fit for nothin' but the cell block. We've got his type in every big city all over this country, and it's sad.

Some trade is just plain ugly inside. The only thing they have of value is between their thighs...and even that only last for a while.

Faison

What Derrick said.

Another piece of ghetto trade who hit the lottery as an athlete. You can take the man out of the ghetto, but sometimes you can't take the ghetto out of the man.

Oh and maybe 50 Cent needs to break him off some dick? Then Floyd might be quiet...

Mel Smith

Do Floyd Mayweather realize the terrible mistake he made by using the word "f@ggot" several times? That is a very offensive and hateful term that NOBODY, especially heterosexuals, should use. I'm sorry but this time Mayweather needs to be held accountable for his actions.

Maybe Mayweather believe we don't have any power. This should get HUGE media attention.

Bill

huge media attention for a man with a little mind, and a little endowment.

terrell

O please. gay obsessed?? lol. People joke about gay people and stra8 people all the time. doesn't make someone obsessed
So its okay for Mayweather to say he's "going to stomp that faggot" etc? And it's normal for a "stra8" man to repeatedly make "jokes" about about gays on national tv and in magazine interviews? SMDH -RM

"Brothas went out their to defend Mayweather's gay panic the last few times. ... I guess now folks see how he really feels about us."

Nope, black gay men will always go out of their way to defend straight black celebrities that go out of their way to offend gays. Especially black male athletes or singers. Must be the sex appeal factor, always being told we are less than, or thinking if we don't speak up they will like us more.

This is exactly why this keeps happening in OUR community because WE don't speak up. The white boys will throw down the gauntlet, boycott, get on Facebook and organize. Brothas on the hand ... we are stuck on stupid.

Hey Terrell, do you defend all straight celebrities that keep making anti-gay jokes? Or just the boxers and athletes that 'joke' about hurting or killing gays? Or was this just trash talking and joking?

freddy

hate to say it but if Floyd had made these statements about a white fighter there'd be more backlash. like the TR Knight-Isaiah Washington incident. homosexuals are like everyone else with similar personal biases and preconceptions. it's not really easy to identify with a small flipino man like Pacquiao. just from my friends and acquaintances I dont really get the sense that anyone cares about these statements from a gay power point of view

Black Pegasus

I saw this on the Huffington Post several days ago.. He was TRASH then, and he's TRASH now...

No need for me to get bent out of shape. He'll be broke with a syphilis infection in just a few short years.

Reggieh

Not to excuse him, but to me this seems part of Floyd's usual pre-fight trash talk. A little more colorful and offensive than usual, but still the same-old same-o.

He always tries to get inside the head of his opponent by taunting them and talking smack. Both the faggot and anti-Asian comments are meant to rile Pacquiao and his supporters, hoping it will get Manny to make a mistake and NOT knock him on his ass when they fight.

Floyd's antics are getting tired, and I'm sure he knows he doesn't have many more years in the ring. Then he and 50 Cent can go into retirement together :)

PS: Some of Pacquiao's entourage, btw, jostle for the honor of sleeping in the same room with him -- on the floor they say -- during training camp...Well, he IS a national hero, so it must be an honor but still....interesting

Former COGIC

@Freddy: You're right, much of the mainstream white gay community could care less. They said nothing.

@Reggie: 'Not to excuse him, but to me this seems part of Floyd's usual pre-fight trash talk. A little more colorful and offensive than usual'

Colorful and offensive? Sounds like an excuse, man. Trash talking sure .... and he went pretty far. Mayweather apologized for the racial remarks but said nothing about 'stomping the faggot down' etc.

Mayweather doesn't even believe we are worthy of an excuse, so why do we black gay men keep excusing him and others like him?

I'm not saying we need to start a major protest or boycott or get on TV, but dayumn ... brothas are in sorry shape. we are constantly making excuses for straight black men who tell us they cannot stand us.

@ Derrick from Philly: "ghetto garbage"?...

"If it weren't for boxing he'd be fit for nothin' but the cell block"?...

"his type in every big city all over this country"?...

"The only thing they have of value is between their thighs"?...

SMH... In the space of two paragraphs you managed to actually out bigot Mayweather... I'm wondering if I could come up with a more offensive and derogatory rant against (gay-unfriendly?) AA males without consulting the "Stormfront" website...

I'm in no way excusing Mayweather's conduct, just hoping to get you to notice that log hangin' from your eyelid, Bro...
Peace.

MW09

BOO.

I knew there was a reason I COULD NOT stand this guy. More fuel for my fire...

Greg G

>>>I'm wondering if I could come up with a more offensive and derogatory rant against (gay-unfriendly?) AA males without consulting the "Stormfront" website.

That's a quantum leap. So Derrick's comment was comparable to white supremacists who vow to kill, murder and mutilate blacks, Jews and gays? Really?

Derrick is right. Mayweather is very ghetto acting and guess what? So are many other black celebrities and athletes because ... they grew up in the hood. And with millions of dollars, they still act very hoodrat. Mayweather acts like a thug, always has hostile things to say about gays and is forever gaybaiting his opponents. I see nothing remarkable about him besides his celebrity. If you want to draw a connection between saying that and avowed white supremacists and neo nazis, you go right ahead, no one is paying attention

Oh and Mayweather has used much more graphic and offensive gaybaiting language in the past. He's never really been called out on it because as Freddy said above, he doesn't target well-to-do white gay men. That's what the issue is here,not what Derrick said on a blog comment.

Greg G

And let me cosign Dallas, COGIC and the others who are calling people out for defending Mayweather's bs. Are black gay men so entranced by thugs, athletes or celebrity that they feel they have to say, 'ohhh it wasnt that bad"

That's exactly why brothas are getting shot dead in ATL and DC and the murderers are walking the streets right now. Scott free. Or with a slap on the wrist. Because we don't even care enough about ourselves our own community to demand to be treated with respect.

TheRevKev

How does he START by saying "I DON'T WANT Y'ALL TO JUMP ON MY DICK LATER....YOU BETTER GET ON....MY SIDE NOW?"

Just stupid and ignorant.

mjolnir202

For Mayweather, remember, the man gets punched in the head for a living.

@ Greg G:
<>

Yes, we are. No one hate themselves like black gay men. We will crawl naked over glass to defend the bigotry and hate of black straight people ever day of the week. We value our lives even less than they do.

lightskinbruh

Ms. Mayweather PLEASE! You get more dick than Liberace, Richard Simmons and 5,000 Gay porn stars will ever get in a lifetime! Stop it (and go back to school to learn to talk your native language....ENGLISH!!!)

TEvans

@ Gre G: "So Derrick's comment was comparable to white supremacists who vow to kill, murder and mutilate blacks, Jews and gays? Really?"

No, his comment was not "comparable to white supremacists," but it was comparable to the type of derogatory language they are known to employ to insult and disparage young AA men...

And there is a very significant distinction between noting someone is acting ghetto (not necessarily a negative thing) and calling them "ghetto garbage" as Derrick did... Such racially hostile language leaves its imprint well beyond just Mayweather... What, because Mayweather isn't the most educated and articulate brother and engages in (albeit unwisened and offensive) trash talk before a boxing match (oh my god! such a thing NEVER happens) he has to be a "thug"?...

Incredible.

Look, again, I ain't excusing Mayweather's stupidity here... But I also ain't getting ready to get too bent outta shape and over react to a professional boxer's pre-fight trash talkin'...certainly not to the point of unleashing racist stupidity of my own...

Also, I'm sure he hasn't targeted any "well-to-do white gay men" because, las time I checked, he's never had a professional boxing match with one...


Fess up, most of the indignation and over-reaction here likely stems from our own sensitivity as gay blk men to his repeated use of the word "faggot".... Most probably didn't give a care about his racist anti-Asian remarks...

TEvans

Well, it's nice to see Rod has his own censorship criterion... Apparently any opinion that falls short of a complete co-sign doesn't enjoy much of a shelf-life here. The more we seek to criticize.
Your post wasn't deleted. It was AUTOMATICALLY marked as spam because it was entirely too long. Two more things: Only the government can 'censor'. And don't ever try to get extra or "diva" with me ... under any of your dozen plus screen-names. They all have the same IP address and can be blocked quite easily. -RM
