If Pacquiao was black but had the same personality and friendliness he has now, the fans who are rooting for him in this fight would still root for Pacquiao. Pacquiao represents the poor, most of the world IS poor. He represents Christianity a very huge religious group. The idea that all black people should cheer for Mayweather because he is black is really interesting. I can totally understand why many white boxing fans would cheer for Pacquiao. Im not going to talk about the trouble Mayweather has gotten into. I will say many of his interviews have rubbed me the wrong way. Its one thing to be good at your profession, its another to be an aszhole or a jerk. This opinion could be subjective depending on who you ask. I see the "hey white guys your boy lost what now" post, but my question is what about the non white Pacquiao fans? What diss do you have for us? Is the attack on white fans based on all the Cops killing black boys in the news? Im curious to see why the race of Pacquiao fans is in question? PEACE
Eh, did it ever occur to you that blacks can make it about race?

Noooooooooowwwww, if Golota or Kessler or Calzaghe or Klitschko had ever said "I will never let a black boy beat me" we'd have gotten the same (DEAFENING) reaction, right?

It's the downside of white privilege. You get 99% of what you want, but have to take some verbal crap. 1st world, white male problems. Probably won't get much sympathy.

A Latino or Asian fighter talking smack about a white fighter would cause NO CONTROVERSY as well. It's not just a black thing...not sure why blacks are always used in these comparisons.

Floyd isn't likeable. If people liked him and hated Pacquiao, no one would care about fighting styles. Floyd would be praised and he'd be on Good Morning America showing his bobbing & weaving techniques.

Race is a small part of the equation, but it is most definitely a factor. A cocky, arrogant black man that has lots of money and answers to no one, creates cognitive dissonance in America. Fans love to pile on NFL and NBA players that get suspended or fined for saying/doing dumb crap. (White) fans in particular love to see (white) owners and (white) commissioners put the swagger-filled black athlete in his place.

Floyd is a jack***, not much different than most famous athletes. The difference is that he can't really be controlled and put in his place the way most black athletes are. It makes white America cringe because he challenges the social order. Black millionaires always lose to white billionaires and most white Americans see that as OK and normal, even if they don't like either side. Oddly, most whites side with and identify with the largely white establishment of coaches, owners, GM's and scouts. Floyd calls the shots and runs the show. If he was a "nice guy," there'd be much less hate, but he'd also be ignored by all the people that criticize him.

What a load of nonsense. No one likes an arrogant, classless white athlete anymore than an arrogant black one. Johnny Manzel is a douche who no one likes, Jeremy Shockey was the scorn of Giants fans, most everyone can't stand Ritchie Incognito. Look what happened to very wealthy and popular celebrities such as Mel Gibson and Alec Baldwin, shunned by whites and their popularity has plummeted.

You just want to make excuses for the poor behavior of arrogant blacks such as Floyd, Broner, and Hopkins. There have been plenty of cocky and confident black boxers who white fans respected such as Ray Leonard, Ali, Toney, Jones Jr, etc. Floyd is a lowlife scumbag, but people like him and fans of his such as yourself need excuses to be knuckle dragging missing links.
