[VIDEO] Dana White Blasts “Racist” Floyd Mayweather for Jeremy Lin Comments

(You may see Snoop Dogg and some bald white guy, but all we see are two cool friends, hanging out and singing karaoke.)

The rise of New Yorks Knicks point guard Jeremy Lin has not come without a bit of racially motivated backlash amongst the sports world, for reasons that have yet to be determined. After using the phrase “chink in the armor” to describe the Knicks loss to the New Orleans Hornets, a remark that appeared to be aimed at Lin, ESPN fired the writer responsible and suspended MMA Live host Max Bretos for using the phrase during a live broadcast. Sports media personality Stephen A. Smith recently discussed the issue alongside Skip Bayless, and if you have an extra 10 minutes on your hand, we recommend you check out his take on everything from over-sensitivity to racism in general, as it really puts the whole debate into perspective.

One person who clearly didn’t get Mr. Smith’s message was WBC Welterweight champion and detriment to society, Floyd Mayweather, who recently took to Twitter to intelligently discuss all that is Linsanity. And by intelligently discuss, we mean turn it into a matter of race like he always does, stating the following:

Jeremy Lin is a good player but all the hype is because he’s Asian. Black players do what he does every night and don’t get the same praise.

Aside from drawing the backlash of his fans, the remark caught the attention of UFC President Dana White, who tore Floyd a new one during a recent episode of FUELTV’s “UFC Tonight,” the video of which is below.

*golf clap*

Bravo, DW. I’m not exactly sure why a convicted woman beater like Mayweather still has any fans left to piss off, but his recent remarks have really shined a light on how much of a witless, racist douchebag he truly is, and I applaud Dana for calling him out on it. Though Mayweather has yet to personally respond, his manager, Leonard Ellerbe, spoke up on his behalf in an interview with Yahoo sports:

[Dana White] needs to shut the [expletive] up and mind his own business, stay in his own lane and keep on taking advantage of the UFC fighters, while underpaying them. If he keeps on running his mouth, we may decide to give a free seminar to all of the UFC fighters on how the pay-per-view revenue should be distributed. This is typical Dana, who is always prone to ignorant outbursts. He should be the last person to try to judge someone else.

Although White’s, let’s call them insensitive, remarks have gotten him in trouble in the past, calling anyone ignorant on behalf of Floyd Mayweather seems a little hypocritical, don’t you think? Never one to back down, White responded via a text sent to Yahoo Sports aimed at Ellerbe:

Just for the record, shut the [expletive] up [because] I wasn’t talking to you, I was talking to Floyd. We’re doing something amazing. We’re building a sport while you guys are destroying one.


I apologize for the rant I’m about to go on, but as a long time Mayweather dissenter, I feel compelled to weigh in on the subject at hand.

First off, fuck you, Floyd. You are a bottom feeding ignoramus, who, if not for your boxing accolades, would likely be locked in prison where any man who assaults a woman, in front of his own children nonetheless, belongs.

Now that we’ve gotten that out of the way, let’s talk about your recent comments, specifically that black athletes don’t receive their due praise in sports:

1. Are you really this blockheaded, or are you just being woefully dense? Perhaps you’ve forgotten about a time, oh, about two years ago, when Sportscenter devoted an entire special to what basketball team Lebron James was going to pick after leaving the Cavaliers. A special, mind you, that ended with a televised party inside the American Airlines Arena WITH 13,000 PEOPLE IN ATTENDANCE. And like DW said, rarely a day goes by that Kobe Bryant doesn’t receive praise in one form or the other; the same could be said for Michael Jordan, Magic Johnson, or Kareem Abdul-Jabbar in their respective careers. This is not a knock on any of those gentlemen, for they are simply some of the best players the sport has ever seen, but rather a few examples of what a moron you sound like when you make completely ungrounded statements like the one that led to this most recent backlash.

2. Could we argue that part of Jeremy Lin’s hype is a result of his race? Sure we could, but the reason he is receiving so much publicity is due to the fact that HE WAS CUT FROM TWO NBA TEAMS AND WAS ABOUT TO BE CUT FROM A THIRD before going a run the likes of which we have never seen. This is what DW neglected to mention. Lin has given hope to struggling athletes that transcends even that of the sport or his race, and here you are attempting to discredit him because of it. I would say that you should be ashamed of yourself, but that would require a scrap of self-awareness that you are clearly lacking. I honestly think that people like you are happy that racism exists in the world, for without it, you would have nothing to talk about day after day.

3. I realize that you likely made those remarks in order to spark controversy and keep your name relevant in the news, and in that manner you’ve succeeded. And maybe this is the only way you know how to remain in the limelight, aside from your various encounters with the law, that is. But please, stop pulling the race card on every issue that arises in the sports world, especially when you are just as quick to make racist remarks, albeit incorrect ones, when referring to the man you are too afraid to fight. It’s unnecessary, uneducated, and simply makes you look like the pot calling the kettle…well…you get what I mean.

^ Ha, Floyd reading thats a good one!
BossNasty- February 23, 2012 at 9:24 am
Because he will actually read the opinion of CP? C'mon nut puncher, please tell me you were joking.
Nut Puncher 9000- February 23, 2012 at 4:41 am
I bet when Floyd reads this he is going to feel really stupid...

Big Dteve says, And regardless of how Mayweather spends his money or speaks ignorance is not the cure for ignorance...
Well said mate.
Joedirt- February 22, 2012 at 2:54 pm
They're both right... Mayweather is an idiot... and Dana should mind his own business.
Jackbequick- February 22, 2012 at 2:14 pm
"Yal need to stop using the word nigger, now if you'll excuse me, I gotta go get my laundry from that chink mother-fucker down the street".
intercept440- February 22, 2012 at 1:49 pm
And in other news....i dont really give a fuck
BigSteve- February 22, 2012 at 12:57 pm
Although Mayweather should have kept his mouth shut I don't think his comments were racist it's just his opinion. I think what Lin is doing is great for the sport and deserves the accolades that he is receiving. And regardless of how Mayweather spends his money or speaks ignorance is not the cure for ignorance...
KeithHackneyWindmillPalmStrike- February 22, 2012 at 12:21 pm
Whatever the other issues...we can all agree what's NOT racist at all, Neggar Wants a Watermelon's name.....only on CP
Kid Clam Curtains- February 22, 2012 at 12:06 pm
This guy lights his cuban cigars with hundreds, carries bricks of cash with him out to clubs, and has an entourage of 50 yes men follow him around everywhere he goes. can you expect him to think any other way? If there was ever the personification of "nigger rich" its floyd mayweather. he'll piss it all away and die broke and alone.
El Guapo- February 22, 2012 at 10:55 am
For all "them haters that be hatin on me" Floyd loves to allude to, he sure is a hater. And for all that paper that he loves to floss, he sure is insecurrrr..
bootystar- February 22, 2012 at 10:28 am

djp1988- February 22, 2012 at 10:23 am
I know I've made fun of Dana in the past, but all joking aside, that guy is my fucking hero right now.
theothermatthughs- February 22, 2012 at 10:19 am
hey Floyd i've got 2 words for you Jeff Hornacek ... that not good enough how about Steve Kerr ... wait this is basketball? who gives a shit about basketball.On a sidenote a seminar on payper view distribution for ufc fighters sounds like a great idea
superdude- February 22, 2012 at 10:16 am
Lin's story is great regardless of his race, but the fact that he is Asian makes it bigger. If you don't think so you're trying to be PC. Taking PC listens from Dana White is kinda funny though (racism BAD, misogyny and homophobia OK right b1tch; right Fagg0t). Mayweather was not entirely wrong but just expressed it in an ignorant way, which makes sense since he's a ignorant person.
The12ozCurls- February 22, 2012 at 9:57 am
And Floyd Mayweather may be a great boxer, but as a human being he is a fucking racist uneducated asshole --- who is RICH BITCH!
The12ozCurls- February 22, 2012 at 9:55 am
His ethnicity is absolutely a reason Jeremy Lin is getting all this media attention. But it is NOT the ONLY reason - 1) The back story of him getting cut several times by other teams. 2) The fact that he was sleeping on his brothers sofa because he didn't know if he would stick with the Knicks. 3) He happens to be pretty damn good 4) He plays in NEW YORK, the number one media market in the country - and the east-coast bias of the media will all play a major role. We all love an under-dog that overcomes the odds, but would Jeremy Lin be getting this much attention if he played in Portland. -- NOPE
Neggar Wants a Watermelon- February 22, 2012 at 9:53 am
Mayweather may be an asshole but boy, his defensive boxing skills are a thing of beauty!
ThePeoplesTroll- February 22, 2012 at 9:52 am
Jeremy Lin is a good player who makes tough shots and puts the team on his back.
HomeSchooled- February 22, 2012 at 9:36 am
A "chink in the armor" i'm asian and I laughed at that.
Dynamo- February 22, 2012 at 9:34 am
"3. I realize that you likely made those remarks in order to spark controversy and keep your name relevant in the news"

Who do you mean? lol They both do it.
Bluntaholic- February 22, 2012 at 9:29 am
anybody else watch the opening skit on SNL last weekend? It was more true than funny but it was still pretty damn funny.

Cliff notes version / spoiler ; black hosts racist remarks of asians is all fun & games but white hosts racist remarks of blacks is highly offensive ; skit ends with white guy getting fired.
Stak40- February 22, 2012 at 9:24 am
Mayweather is half right and half asshole! There are a plenty of players in all sports who get passed over by many teams and then finally get a chance and become good, great, relevant. They hype around Ling is strictly because he is Asian. In my opinion its dope to have a Chinese American playing NBA caliber basketball but like all things, the Media hypes them to a point where you almost hate the person after a few months. The black thing was just ignant. Fuck Mayweather, I still say he out boxes Manny to a split decision.
ThePeoplesTroll- February 22, 2012 at 9:21 am
i hope floyd chisora dies and i hope danga takes over this whole site since he writes all the articles anyways
Morningwood- February 22, 2012 at 9:19 am
Why doesn't anyone mention Larry Bird, or Kevin McHale in their responses to Mayweather? effing racists!
