  • Amir Khan: Asians will never succeed because they are frail due to poor diets, eating too much curry and use racism as an excuse for why they cant compete

    Dam Amir Khan dropping bombs he is getting heat for his comments.

    said they eat too much curries and British have better diets and are stronger than his people.

    Twitter users soon called out Khan for his remarks.

    “These quotes from Amir Khan are terrible (including the curry slander),” sports journalist Shireen Ahmed tweeted. “But in a week with so much trauma the ‘...when people bring religion or racism into something I think it’s all bollocks’ line has me livid. Major disappointment.”


    “Quiet unbelievable that someone who has experienced racism in sport has opted to perpetuate harmful stereotypes here,” freelance journalist Renuka Odedra said. “Some entitlement from him to resort to the ‘they eat too much curry’ and ‘they’re using racism as an excuse’ mindset. Smh.”

    “What nonsense and ridiculous generalizations about curries and Asian diets, why is this clown so full of himself,” another user said

          I think Khan's talking about just South Asians, not all Asians.

                South Asian food is awesome

                India/Pakistan are amazing countries.

                They’re more interested in cricket. If boxing was more popular they’d have success.

                  Completely agree about the food.

                  The cricket angle is interesting, India have never had an out and out fast bowler yet Pakistan just keep rolling them out off conveyor belts, Pakistan also has far more power hitters.

                  Someone had a theory that it's because Indians don't eat meat? Probably a load of bollocks but I think it's an interesting subject.

                  I also think that Asians have a lot more pressure on them by their families to go into academic subjects rather than sports, it's a culture thing.

                    In my (limited) experience the main reason South Asians don't do much boxing is the parents not supporting it, sometimes for religious reasons.
