Bernard Hopkins: Black Fighters, We Are Built Differently

By Mark Vester

Bernard Hopkins is at it again. During a recent interview with Lem Satterfield of FanHouse/BoxingScene.com, the 45-year-old veteran made some interesting comments reagrding the issue of race, and how it relates to boxing and the big fight between Manny Pacquiao and Shane Mosley, which happens on May 7 at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. Hopkins made huge headlines in November when he spoke to Satterfield about Pacquiao possibly avoiding African American fighters.

In November, Hopkins was critical of Pacquiao and questioned why the Filipino boxer had not fought an African American fighter with a "slick style" of boxing. Many insiders believe the comments by Hopkins were a ploy to help his good friend, Mosley, land the Pacquiao fight. This time around, Hopkins examined the difference between African American fighters, and those who hail from other backgrounds.

"The athleticism that we possess and that we are born with, most of us, not all of us, but most of us -- because I've seen some awkward black guys that can't even tie their shoes. But the blessing of most of us is that we've run the races," said Hopkins.

"Jesse Owens ran against the Germans. We're known in history. It's in our DNA, most of us. There's no secret that we are built differently. There's no secret that we have things that other cultures don't have and that they have to work to get. It's nothing that I made up or anything that was printed on a book two days ago. It's called genetics."

This sh[I]it[/I] is still going? Get over your inferiority complex you insecure, pathetic little white fu[I]c[/I]ks. Blacks are physically superior - accept it and be done with it.

Blacks generally have better speed and rhythm while whites are physically stronger and are better punchers

In breaking news, it has come to light that Bernard Hopkins is in fact - white. Distantly related to the Earl of Gloucester it has been rumored that Hopkins is on round-the-clock suicide watch. Particularly upsetting for Hopkins was discovering…
