    Default James Toney racist comments!!!

    FULL ARTICLE : http://www.eastsideboxing.com/news.php?p=6538&more=1

    These are some of the beliefs Toney conveyed:

    "Rahman is a real fighter; we aren’t nothing like these Germans and Russians you all trying to build up."

    "We Afro-Americans... we like to fight… we ain't scared to fight nobody."

    "You all keep trying to build up the Great White Hype. It’s not gonna happen."

    “The Klitschkos, the walking dead man over in Germany, Valuev.”

    "It’s not going to happen. You all can stop all that. Stop it."

    "There isn't going to be a white heavyweight champ, unless you see him Europe... and that's real."

    “I’m gonna keep it real. I’m not gonna hide nothing.”

    Quoted from MaxBoxing.com’s: Rahman/Toney Post Presser

    These are stupid racist comments making out that afro-americans are good fighters, doesn't make one think they are good at other things does it?

    Again he claims there will be no white champ, why? Because white people are not good enough to claim the crown. Might be what he was thinking!

    I think James Toney is being controversial, with light racism and probelly to get media attention. IMHO!

    I'm a white European and I agree with Toney 100% All of the current white heavies are chumps, weak chinned robots who would have been destroyed had they fought in any other era.

    Long live the Toney!

    Well, let's be honest, he makes some points about the style that Eastern Europeans fight, and we don't have that many western europeans or southern european hw's on the way up, so I guess he is probably right. However, after looking at his recent performances he ain't going to be an afro-american that wins the hw title either.

    Fuck it, Toney is Toney. Thats the way he is, he's controversial and disrespectful, thats the way he likes to portray himself. Great fighter all the same.

    theres only one of these that seems even close to racist.

    i guess people have different definitions of whats racist. try going to highschool in las vegas (and that was 10 years ago, im sure its much worse now)

    Speaking of overt racism, I wouldn't trust anything that comes from that trash-pile over at Eastsideboxing. If you think there are too many Klitschko fans on this site, you
    wouldn't believe it.

    toney is toney, we shouldnt take much of what his saying the wrong way, his always been like that...what he says doesnt bother me.

    ooh i think in any era vitaly could be a champ, his the most complete (european)heavyweight i've ever seen, plus his a giant heavyweight. it only takes double jabs to keep any heavy off him. ooh then comes the finishing touch BOOOOOM, thats a massive punch that just landed, (oppenent)wtf was that, waking up ten second later. ooh yea you know vitaly can knock any one in any era out.

    I heard the same, Toney is disrespectful. Never mind, at least he makes interesting reading.

    JT knows every time he makes a comment like that, more people will spend money to watch him get his ass handed to him (or not)..which obviously aint gonna hurt his finances. Its a bit low playing the race card IMO but he aint stupid, I dont think he is racist either. A lot of his team are white men. Boxing has never been about race, its social class and poverty, pure and simple. People who have nowhere to go outside boxing, men with nothing to lose.

    Watch the British boxing scene over the next 10 years and see how many good asian boxers come through. 10 years after that it will be the Polish fighters etc..

    We've already had a few asian boxers coming through the ranks, and I can't see that tide slowing, Khan's current success can only boost the numbers of asian families willing to let their kids start boxing, but at the moment, the polish boxers who are around the british scene tend to be those that have moved over here for work, and are continuing an interest/minor career in boxing.

    Its hardly racist, just a cultural difference. He believes white europeans cant be decent heavyweight champs, and from what i have seen over the last few years, his comments are justified. Although controversial, that's just the nature of the Toney propaganda machine.
    Never actuly seen it, but from what u class as racism (which is fair enuf), would u call the title 'white men can't jump' racist?
