for all the truly descriptive and suggestive racialist things that get a pass here... even uttered by people like Chael himself,

Benson calling someone a "white guy" receiving such harsh criticism and being deemed "racist" is laughable.

Anyone who is offended by what Bendo said is reading way too much into it. Hes just saying Chael is a very average UFC fighter. He is. His record isnt very impressive.. he dosent have many highlight knockouts or explosive signature moves and he usually blankets people. and hes white. Most of the UFC has been white. But he uses his mouth to get attention and fans instead of sitting around unknown like John Fitch. Thats not racist ..its the truth Phone Post

And whoever stated that theres some kinda myth about the black athlete....are you fucking kidding me? There is NO myth about black people being better athletes...its just history...especially African Americans..white slave catchers take africans across the ocean in horrible conditions for an extended period of time. many africans died. The survivors you have left were obviously the physically stronger ones. Then they brought the africans to America where they were sold into slavery for hard physical labor. On top of that they were bred with other strong african slaves so the slave owners could have strong slave children and have more work done. And you expect us to believe the theres some kinda myth about black athletes.....they were genetically bred like dogs to do physical labor. They are genetically pre disposed for athleticism. Sorry you might be a little insecure about that. Phone Post

100% myth that being black means your a better athlete. Take a look at the olympics, it's a mixed bag of all races.

Funny you have to point to the olympics which which prove absolutely nothing. Many of the sports of the olympics are or can be tied down by economic and social restraints....all "races " and people of different countries dont play the same sports. Not to mention many of those sports require much more technique and skill than straight athleticism. Like i said its not a myth ...its history. Take your average white american male and compare him to your average black american male..theres a difference Theyre usually faster, stronger and more explosive. But thats just raw athleticism. It dosent mean it will translate to technique and skill or mental capacity. Phone Post

I love how Benson says that Chael is white as if it is an attribute to his fighting style.

OP, Ben didn't call Chael an average white guy - please don't mix his words around :(

Nope he was serious, there really are some people who buy into the myth of black people being more athletic. Usually the same people who say racial differences are cultural when you bring up IQ scores or income levels.

Good readers are taught to infer. When Benson mentions that Chael is white in the middle of naming a bunch of average attributes that Chael has, it is logical to think that he meant Chael is an average white guy or a fighter with average white guy skills and attributes. If that is not what he meant, then he needs to learn to convey his messages better.

And I honestly don't believe for one minute that he hates white people. He's calling a spade a spade. In GENERAL, white people appear athletically average compared to black people. It is what it is.

He's not trolling you. 

Frankie is from New Jersey.

Jersey Shore is in New Jersey.

People hate Jersey Shore.

People could possibly hate Frankie because he's from the same place as people from Jersey Shore.

 

FRAT: It was a joke, dude.
