April 26th, 2011 By Pedro FernandezGAVE MANNY & FLOYD PRAISE & HEAT
San Francisco, CA- Even though I praised and backhanded both Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao yesterday in an article entitled, “The Good & Bad of Manny Pacquiao and Floyd Mayweather,” not one of the scathing emails and blogs that I received were from the Mayweather contingent. Seeing I all but called Floyd a “sissy” of sorts, still it was the “in denial” Filipinos that were spewing truculent and racist comments. Is it just me, or are there an extraordinary excessive amount of Filipino knuckleheads per capita than there are in any other ethnic background?
PINOY’S NEVER ADMIT BEING WRONG!
One stereotype that has been affixed to the islanders is that they can never, ever, admit when they are wrong. When I stated a fact in saying had Manny Pacquiao agreed to taking the random Drug Testing that Floyd Mayweather wanted, and that the fight would have taken place March 13, 2010, all but one of nearly 100 responses denied such and tried to spin the blame on the fight not taking place 13 months ago on Mayweather. Yes, Manny did agree to the testing, but this was many months afterwards, and yet he still wanted a 10 or 14 day window in which he didn’t want any testing done.
IS IT THE LACK OF HOT RUNNING WATER IN THE PHILIPPINES?
Why are the Filipino people afraid to call a spade a spade? I mean, we wouldn’t even be having this debate had Manny agreed to drug testing instead of taking on Joshua “Handcuffed” Clottey last March, this again after refusing the drug testing demands of Mayweather. In general, most Filipino people that I’ve met are extremely well educated and articulate, so I have to ask myself why is there such a proliferation of anti-African American venom coming from them? It appears that the Filipinos that have been dogging Mayweather, and in some regards rightfully so, are so far beyond being bias and pro-Pacquiao, that they are instead racists in the truest sense of the word.BLACK CUBANS LACK CLOUT TOO!
It reminds a lot of Cuban-Americans, the vast majority of whom that are successful are lighter rather than darker. In the case of Filipinos, although some might think that I’m wrong, their major stars, both in music and acting are again, lighter rather than darker. In closing, if I were to print some of the blogs I received ripping on Mayweather, whom I consider a jerk, you’d think the Philippine people were living in the days of Jim Crow and the Klu Klux Clan.
