People get caught buddy. It sucks, but it happens. That spinning backfist was Shonie's luckiest break ever, but obviously it didn't get him anywhere.

Most people have let go of slavery, but Segregation was only 40 somethin years ago(which historically isn't that long ago at all) so racism is still significant.

Anyway, I was just wondering if anyone else caught that and thought it was derogatory, or if he didnt mean it like that.
Isn't Jroc Matt Hughes 'boy as Serra put it?

It is clear that what Serra said was taken out of context by you. If he called him a n*gger etc then I would say outrage is warranted.

I don't see colour I just believe people when they say I'm white cause it's easy to get a taxi.

Well actually if you mean boy in the "yeah thats my friend" sense. Id disagree with you. Maybe I missed the episode they got along in.

Honestly you're a moron if you think thats the only fight Serra has won. Here's an idea, take your head out of your ass and read TUF4's full name, THE COMEBACKS!

Saying "boy" about a black person is only derogatory if you said it in the South where it could theoretically be considered a slur. By the same token, nobody bats an eye in the States when u say "bugger" but in canada or UK not a good idea at all.

Having said that, Matt Serra doesn't offend me any more than any other bigmouth athlete, and there's a lot of them.

I was deeply offended. I cried for hours and hours in a dark lonely corner.

People are way too sensitive about racism. Yes, slavery was a shitty thing. But looking for racism in everything just perpetuates more racism. Let those that still practice it rot in their ignorance. I doubt what Serra said was racist in any way. Mocking? Perhaps.

J-farrell's claims would have been off base if the comment was just left at "he is Hughes's boy" but when he said "am I doing it right" "am I doing it like I am suppose to" "mr Hughes".

That was all the confirmation I needed to know there was definitely some racial connotations behind it. And no you don’t need to be from the south to make such a statement you just need to be an ignorant caucasian.

However making a post like this in a forum dominated by white posters is kind of pointless. Most whites folks are perpetrators of or hardly ever have to deal with racism, so they when situations like this arise they struggle to read between the lines.

this is so stupid...
if you try this hard to find something that could POSSIBLY be racist you'll be able to find 'racist' shit everywhere.

Theres a thread called "Jared Goes Ape Next Episode" ... look someone said Jared goes ape... RACIST!!!! AHHH!!!
