Rashad Evans: 'Black Fighters Pay a Color Tax'

source: bodybuilding.com

Rashad spoke a few hours ago to Larry Pepe of Pro MMA Radio and made a shocking accusation about the sport of MMA. You can download the show through itunes or download it from here; http://www.bodybuilding.com/fun/pro_mma_radio_archive.htm

"Being in this sport and being black, you got to pay your color taxes"

The context of the quote was Rashad feels that Rampage is, purposely, perpetuating black stereotypes. Rashad claims those sterotypes are that blacks can't speak proper English and aren't intelligent.

 Can't we all just agree that MMA is a white sport.  Have you seen the cost of BJJ lessons?

It seems this statement is taken greatly out of context.Rashad meant that Rampage behaves like a very stereotypical thug.Which I agree with.
