Still a Fedor fan, his trainers are just a bit racist.
I was not aware that American was a race...

Neat, so if you say anything bad about mexicans or japanese people then you are being racist, but saying bad things about americans is just cute and funny. That is just special.

I guarantee you that if I got on this board and started talking down about Mexicans or any specific nationality of Asian people, I would be banned from here in a hurry. Its another ridiculous double standard that exists in this world. Its ok to make fun of white people and Americans, but no one else for the most part.

Maybe racist isnt the best word for the situation, but either way the comment was pretty damn inappropriate especially considering that they are trying to turn Fedor into a star in the U.S., I doubt that this one comment alone is going to be an issue for him, but this guy should be more careful with what he says in the future. I cant imagine that I would be very popular in Russia if I went there and started spouting out ignorant anti Russian comments.

Either way, next time Rogers fights (Atonio Silva?....they'll throw him him someone who will stand with him for a bit) and then a couple more people, he can fight the best again.

If Rogers wants a rematch, then he needs to get way in the back of the line.

Isnt it predjuduce against a Natonality not called racism???

rac·ism (rszm)
n. 1. The belief that race accounts for differences in human character or ability and that a particular race is superior to others.
2. Discrimination or prejudice based on race.




Doesnt really clarify if a Nationality being disrespected is racism....When I think of race I think black, white and brown.....not being disrespectful...
