i went joe, just because of how he was the biggest hero of african culture for a while, and how important his fights against max were for his fans

Default joe

joe did more because a lot of whites love joe and did not go out and kill black like when jack beat the great white hype

No one liked Jack, and wanted to see him dead. He made blacks scared to box. Everyone loved Joe Louis, cause he was a good guy, didn't cause any controversies, and encouraged blacks to fight.

this question has no merit, jack johnson was a hated man not only by whites( because he beat a white man) but also by other blacks, he sold out and wedded a white woman, many felt that this was the ultimate in your face to white america but damaged black america as it caused more racial tenisions amongst blacks and whites, he was also an idiot and jerk by many accouts, well thats what all the books say, i don't know the guy
