An Open Letter To Floyd Mayweather, Jr.

An Open Letter To Floyd Mayweather, Jr. post image

Dear Floyd Mayweather Jr.,

When you said that Manny Pacquiao should, “make some sushi rolls and cook some rice,” I chalked it up to promotional taunting, even though you continue to duck him. Hey, if it adds heat to the fire surrounding your perpetually distant fight with the guy, I can’t blame you. Perhaps you were some kind of genius manipulator of the media, I supposed.

However, your comments regarding the New York Knicks’ starting point guard, Jeremy Lin, have shown me that you are, in fact, a garden-variety racist.

Jeremy Lin’s story is an Asian-American one, to be sure, but it is much more than that. It is a classic story of perseverance through adversity, frequent demotions and being underestimated. It is a story of how hard work and love of the game pays off in success. And that is a story that America likes.

When I ran into actor Tom Sizemore, he revealed himself to me as a racist, bloated, sack of crap wrapped in human skin. While you are clearly in shape, you are still the same sack of crap as Tom is, just bloated in different ways. Like your ego, for instance. Lin doesn’t need to fill an empty hole in his soul by walking into clubs and “making it rain.” Much less, with counterfeit money. Lin makes it rain genuine cheers; there’s nothing fake about him. You, Junior, are a joke.

Now grow up and let someone else have the spotlight for a moment.

One needs to actually “cook some rice” BEFORE he “makes some sushi rolls.” Idiot.
