at some of the responses.

In response though, I think he does it because of the almost inate ability for blacks to trash talk. In the UFC, and in MMA period, we have some of the worst trash talkers on the face of the earth. In Rampage, Rashad, Randleman, etc you have some pretty good trash talkers. I think he talks smack about/to them because they will do it right back and give him something to feed off of. I think it has more to do with him having fun than any real race concerns.

If anything he seems to act a bit differently with white people and black people, more stiff and polite with white people, sort of like (some) Americans act like when they arrive in England and realise no one is using any of the slang they use, with black people he seems more jokey.

People tend to hate people who remind them of themselves or family, maybe that is partly to do with it.

Summary: Only because Rampage is more awkward around whiteys.

Like it or not 'page also has a financial interest in maintaining singularity amongst his racial peers.

It has not been widely reported but Kimbo's not really black... he use to be a white UPS driver from Nebraska. He got that disease that Michael Jackson had, only opposite, and he turned from white to black. So you guys need to stop ruining my thread by bringing up the Kimbo thing.

I bet Rampage wouldn't even consider trying to talk smack or make fun of The Spider unless he has a deathwish.

Rampage would feel the wrath of the thai clinch (again lol) or get bluegeoned like Forrest.

Rashad =\/= Anderson.

Just saying ya know.
