Nothing more satisfying than seeing an athlete walking out to a "black power/black pride" theme then subsequently getting beat down.

 

Someone doing the same to a white empowerment schtick would  be just as douchey. The only difference is the black fella is encouraged to do it white a white dude would be vilified.

Hypocrisy should be pointed out at every opportunity. Try to soothe your butthurt.

Agreed. VU OP.

...racism is racism.

I don't see why self ethnicity pride is irritating to people.  People should be able to express pride in their community (whatever that structure / history may be) and they should reap the fall out.

I.E. Wilder should be able to do what he did.  He reaps the fallout.  Same for any person who does that.  You can do it, you deal with the backlash.

I didn't catch the live intro, but I saw his custom. He looked like a knight out of the video game, Dark Souls.

How is what Wilder did any different than coming out to some song by sinead o'connor draped in a Irish flags?

He was also saying that this fight would be symbolic as it took place during Black History Month. Does he still think it will be remembered forever as part of that celebration?

Sinead Singing for a white fighter facing a black one where she says that word "white" 27x would seem kinda racist to me

How long until Wilder pulls a Myles Garrett and says Fury called him the N-word.

Yes and no.

In America black is more of an ethnicity than a race. Black usually is referring to African Americans specifically.

Weight of the suit is racist against Wilder.  It would have been lighter for white people

God some of you sensitive ass butt hurt white people give the rest of us a bad name. 
 

Being proud of being black in a nation that enslaved you less than 200 years ago makes total sense to me. Please show me where he said all white people should be killed. I’ll wait.

That's a piss weak comeback. You're going around everywhere complaining about it. You're obviously triggered, the "nuh uh you are" responses are not as convincing as you think.
