Default Why do Black fighters get the role of villain?

Ali, Jack Johson, Tyson, Roy, Bernard, Floyd, etc. Is this by default of being black or just chose that role in order to sell because the media doesn't accept their talent?

I believe the media kinda forces them into that role by refusing to acknowledge their talent. This my opinion

Your actions make you a villain. If your not acting like a straight douche bag etc then your going to be marked as such.

There are too many that cry wolf.

This reminds me of Floyd crying wolf about Jeremy Lin. Pulling the race card.

You know what popped in my head?



Funny how it took 2 asians to bring back "dieing" sports. Manny Pacquiao and Jeremy Lin. Asian Sensations

Did you also look at their attitudes and their charisma? It took their life stories and how they did it to make headlines. They didn't want to be hand-fed or given a silver spoon because they cried wolf! ha@the race card


DAMN THAT CHICK IN YOUR AVATAR IS F*CKING BAD!!

Many black fighters are not willing to conform to how "mainstream" thinks they should be. That makes them the villain.

First point, your thread is going to get deleted. This forum doesn't deal to well with race, there's too much black and white, not enough grays or the like.

Last point, it might be more edifying to investigate this question on your own instead of introducing it as a topic, you're going to get more heat than light this way. Race is a profoundly troubling subject in American society, despite the distance we've come, and it's a topic best left to our individual conscience to grapple with, after all, we have to live with ourselves....
