Floyd Mayweather

Some of My Best Friends

Are White!

3/2/2012 6:20 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

0302_mayweather_splash_videoFloyd Mayweather couldn't possibly be a racist ... because he employs sooooo many white people!

The boxing superstar has been in hot water ever since he tweeted that New York Knicks guard Jeremy Lin was only receiving attention because he was Asian. 

Mayweather has stood by his words and when he was asked about it yesterday, he proceeded to mention all the white people around him ... even pointing out that one of them "does a tremendous job."

Now that's progress.

Well, of course it's because he's Asian. An African-American basketball star is not news and neither is a Caucasian. But an Asian? Heck, yes! It is what it is and people need to stop trying to hide the truth with these negative labels.

Hey People. Does this ring a bell?....Average White American is called racist and they reply "I'm not racist, some of my best friends are black"; or "I grew up with black people"; etc. I laughed when I saw what he said. Sure his comment was ignorant in this day and age but so are the countless that have been perpetrated before his.
