Black criminality must not be mentioned

Controversy struck a member of Team Australia on the currently running "Ultimate Fighter: Nations" season this weekend, and it's now cost him a future with the UFC.

Tyler Manawaroa, who is currently on the airing season on Fox Sports 1 on Team Australia, posted a racist photo to Instagram some 18 months ago that went unseen by the UFC until this weekend, when one of his fellow competitors outed the picture, along with the associated hashtags Manawaroa added which were even worse.

Manawaroa took to Facebook to apologize, removing the post and trying to pass it off as nothing more than an insensitive joke. His Facebook statement read:

"I posted a pic on instagram that has offended very sorry !! As you can imagine that was never the intention. .as a dark skinned person myself who has delt with racism all my life ,I was making fun of the stereotype that all dark people go to jail..which is obviously not true....hence the irony...but I will remove it and I apologize for offending you."

That apology is too little too late for Manawaroa, who is currently still in the competition with episodes yet to air, as the UFC has released a statement saying they'll not be offering him a contract.


Too much realism.  One third of black males spend some time in prison.  But black criminality must not be mentioned, of course.  Manawaroa appears to be of part Maori ancestry.

While that may be true that the odds against this child are pretty bad, to say that they will without question, wind up in prison solely due his/her skin color strikes me as being actual racism.

racism - noun
1. the belief that races have distinctive cultural characteristics determined by hereditary factors and that this endows some races with an intrinsic superiority over others
2. abusive or aggressive behaviour towards members of another race on the basis of such a belief

Given the black on white crime stats, it is entirely rational to conclude that blacks are the racists. Would this be due to a perceived superiority over whites or rage over the inferiority exhibited over many decades on multiple continents? Name the shining city on the hill of self governing black achievement. Atlanta? Detroit? Zimbabwe? Congo?

Individual exceptions? Of course. Cultural exceptions? Nope.

It is the Democrats who are racist. They want to keep blacks poor and on welfare so that they will vote for democrats.
