Antonio McKee Plays the Race Card Against the UFC, Then Denies Playing the Race Card Against the UFC


(Video courtesy of YouTube/MiddleEasy)

It took a while, but Antonio McKee has finally played the race card against the UFC when attempting to explain why he was dropped by the promotion after just one loss in the Octagon.

McKee spoke to Layzie the Savage from MiddleEasy recently and had some interesting things to say about Zuffa’s stranglehold on the sport or on black fighters, depending on how you interpret his racially-infused rhetoric.

“Get ready guys. We got some new slave masters…new plantation…new slave plantation, the UFC, you know? Nothing personal. It was an honor to fight there, but you got to look at the politics behind the sport still and it drives me crazy and that’s why I got my license as a promoter. I’m gonna try to alleviate that sort of stuff.”

McKee, who has stated in the past that the n-word has a different meaning to him than the one it has for the rest of the human race apparently has a vision of plantations staffed by slaves who aren’t black, but are instead simply unapologetic for commanding respect.

“I won’t say race card, I’ll say more bias towards my style of fighting and my mentality. Actually, that’s a better way of looking at it…bias towards my mentality. I’m not the kind of guy that’s going to kiss butt. That’s just not what I do, but I’ll teach you respect and I expect to be respected. Unfortunately some guys have complexes…little man complexes, big man complexes…I don’t know, whatever. But at the end of the day I just want to be a good person and represent what’s best for the people in the fight game, that like the fight game.”

In regards to his rumored DREAM bout with Shinya Aoki, McKee says he’s been told the May 29 bout is on.

“I had to get my passport taken care of. I got my passport taken care of and as I was told right now, ‘Get ready. Start training for him and be ready to go come May 29.’ So that’s what I’m doing. I’m eatin’ doughnuts and drinkin’ soda pops and eatin’ Kentucky Fried Chicken and grape soda and apple pie, getting’ ready.”

I’m surprised he didn’t mention watermelon or infer that Aoki is chasing and eating cats to prepare for the fight. There’s still time I guess.

I yousta think Slavery was getting kidnapped, raped, beaten and forsed to do exhausting and demeaning work for no pay only to die young from some easily treated desiese or abject abuse.

If slavery means getting paid $28,000 to fail to take down Jacob Volkman for 15 minutes, I would totally be a slave.

Get your racist stereotypes right, playa. The Korean Zombie might eat cats, but I doubt Aoki does. Aoki probably eats dolphins or some shit.

"...that’s why I got my license as a promoter. I’m gonna try to alleviate that sort of stuff."
 
Please tell me that means Iron Ring II on BET.

im not a black man, but as a sexy white man, I can feel his pain... My good looks alienate me, much in the same way as McKee's race. Down with man, the ugly, bald white man.

It's true, the UFC is racist... not against black people, just ASHY black people.
