I don't understand what do you want us to do. Discuss race? Just race? Okay:

Anderson Silva is Brazilian.

Seriously, I'm baffled about this thread.

I had this parrot. The parrot talked, but it did not say "I'm hungry." So it died.

It was a just a bitter rant about how some threads just end up being about race not about fighting and it got to me so I created this thread for race discussions so the other threads can be about fighting.

Of course no one wants to discuss race here, certain folks just want to insinuate racism whenever people claim to dislike certain fighters.

I'm all for expressing rage malky. I think that a significant portion of us on here engage in some type of fight sport IN PART because it helps them channel said fury.

Having said that, have you given self-medication a fair shot?

Staying on topic, it's irrelevant to me what race a fighter is.

First let me say that I'm black, and was co-captain of the swim team in high school. Yet most black people can't swim becuase most black people live in the inner city where there are few swimming pools, and even less instruction on how to swim. As far as Racist are concerned if you're not white then you're black. Racist don't discriminate. There are not many good Black MMA fighers. I'm still trying to figure that one out. It may have something to do witha cultural bias towards boxing. I find black fighters have great stand up but are eventually taken down and submitted. Pete Spratt is a perfect example. How is it that this guy has yes to learn any submission defence? It's uncanny.Another example is the idiot that refused to tap out last week. Razack Al Whatever his name. I'm personally more of submission fighter, but I do have a black belt in Karate and I'm training Muay Thai.There is just something special about making somebody submit. I guess it's the Tyrant in me. Oh by the way there was a black guy on the relay team with Micheal Phelps in China.(just Sayin)

Whatever works for you, be it tomatoes, a rigorous workout, occasional retail therapy, etc. I don't recommend nicotine b/c that's booze money you're spending.

BTW good post dblock.
