I don't think its that people are racist against him, but I do think a lot of white people don't "get" black culture and jump to the conclusion that his little dances and stuff are somehow very insulting to his opponent, moreso than anyone else's celebrations.
Showboating and arrogance is a cultural thing? I've always had the most respect for respectful fighters with a sense of humility. Rashad doesn't fit the bill, or at least he tries his best not to appear to.

I thought he was cool in his post fight, and gained some respect for him. One step forward, two steps back I guess.

LOL. You even got the name right. I had to go check that one. Perhaps that is the inside joke he and his crew were sharing? Good call.

The endzone dance is performed largely by black players, is what I mean.

How's that?

You don't think the reaction might have something to do with a very popular 4-1 favorite getting knocked out in his latest bout?

If ANY wrestler not particularly known for his striking had knocked Chuck out that night, the backlash would have been the same or worse.

People don't like being wrong: A lot of them were.

People don't like losing bets: A lot of them did.

People don't like seeing their heroes getting KTFO'd in devastating fashion: A lot of them did.

There are a lot more likely reasons that people are hating on Rashad at this point other than the fact that he is black.

God I hate black people because of Rashad Evans beating Chuck Liddell.























OBVIOUSLY I'M JOKING.

While I find most of what Rashad said to be true, him saying "that's it?" to Chuck's punch which clearly didn't full connect is pretty cocky.

Some people like guys that are all flashy when they triumph. Great.

But just because people don't like Rashad... I don't think it's fair to say they don't like him simply because he's black.

I think Rampage's chains and howling thing is stupid. Not arrogant, just silly. Is that because I don't understand black people? lol.

And in the post you quoted, I listed three white guys that bug me when they win. Is that because I hate white people? lol.

And when I was rooting for Hendo against Palhares... Maybe I can't stand Brazillians either.

I mean really. If Chuck was getting booed one night and he responded with "They're just mad at me because I'm white." Would no one be taken aback?
You misunderstood me. I never claimed that the hate for Rashad was due to racism, I was just stating that there was a lot of hate towards him (for whatever reason) and he just felt compelled to give his own opinion as to why there was. Like some of the hate is pretty injust.
