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.

Yeah, he's racist. He may tolerate some white guys that kiss his ass. But, he still wants blacks to get favoritism from society.

I love it. It reminds me of all those libersls who say everyone else who doesn't agree with them is "intolerant" and bigoted. But the criteria the liberals use is that they either are gay, have a gay friend, or believe in gay marriage and that's thier criteria for tolerance. They will viciously hate Christians, make incredibly insensitive jokes about Christians, or republicans/conservatives, those that question global warming, say things like G. Bush should be killed, hate the talk show people like Limbaugh and Beck and say the most vile things with HATRED TOWARD THOSE GROUPS THAT IS SO VILE , yet always claim their the "tolerant" one so long as they have a gay friend. Even Bill Maher thinks he's tolerant

Trying anything to dievert attention from the fact that he's Pacquiao's bitch. Now he's known as Pacquiao's racist, little bitch.

He's right though. If Lin wasn't Asian there wouldn't be such an obsession with him.

If the comment was about Lin, shouldn't he be saying he has plenty of Asian friends?

If a white person said the same sh_t about black people, you blacks would be crying your eyes out and calling Jesse Jackson. The white person who made the remark would then have to schedule a press conference and release a statement to the world saying how "sorry" they were for "offending African Americans". Give me a f_cking break. You black people LOVE to perpetuate racism and hate towards white people, but if we do it back, you cry like babies. GTFO with that sh*t.

It's funny how the media is, Mayweather is receiving all this attention for his remarks about Jeremy Lin, but can beat the mother of his children, in front of them, but is not vilified like Chris Brown. Wow our priorities.
