Yes, This Actually Happened! ‘White’ Boxer Jake Paul Asked if Knocking Out A Black Man In A Boxing Match Was RACIST?
Race issues has been an issue in the US since our nations inception.
On September 17, 1787, a majority of the delegates to the Constitutional Convention approved the documents.
As our new nation grew, a majority of the states demanded the federal government abolish slavery. In protest to upcoming legislation some of the southern states succeeded and on April 12, 1861, the Civil War started.
On May 9, 1865, the South conceded and by the end of the 1960s, the Civil Rights movement has successfully helped ushered in equal rights for all American citizens.
This doesn’t mean racism was extinguished from America but legally any abuses could be prosecuted.
Up to Obama’s 8 years in office, race relations had improved in day to day life, with different races even making light of each other, but without any malice or ill will.
Fast forward to the 2016 presidential election cycle, the left heavily pushed racism charges against Donald Trump and with SJW activist groups were able to arouse college student to start demanding social justice which required isolating “white students” as having defects.
Now the “truth” of systemic racism in our nation has impowered activists to challenge white and Asian Americans, anytime about almost any situation.
According to Summit News – YouTuber Jake Paul, who beat former NBA star Nate Robinson in a boxing match last month, was asked by a VICE host if knocking out Robinson was racist.
Paul, who previously fought another black opponent in YouTuber Deji, achieved a second round knockout victory over Robinson in a fight that was part of the undercard for the Mike Tyson vs. Roy Jones Jr. exhibition match.
During a subsequent interview with Paul on a VICE TV show called Cari & Jemele (Won’t) Stick to Sports, host Jemele Hill said she “almost had to protest this show.”
“We saw what happened to Nate Robinson, so I’m gonna ask Jake Paul…considering where we are right now in our racial conversation in America, was what you did to Nate Robinson racist?
“Nah, stop playing with me,” responded Paul.
“We just had to witness a white man just knock a black man smooth out in front of all of America so that’s why I asked that,” said Hill.
After Paul’s wi-fi reconnected, he was asked the same question by Hill’s co-host Cari Champion, who said, “Was it racist to knock a black man out, that is the question of the week.”
“Stop asking me that, I said no, it’s a shitty question, it’s a sport,” responded Paul.
“Why is it a shitty question?” asked Champion.
“How does it have anything to do with race? It doesn’t,” said Paul.
“It’s a fine question, we gotta wake you up, you gotta be a part of this conversation,” said Champion.
