Hes proud of where he's from. Its as simple as that to me. To consider it racist is crazy to me.
But it is based on race. He didn't say Mexican pride, he said brown pride. I don't know if it qualifies as racist, since he isn't really judging other races based on his pride, but as has already been stated, it does expose preset notions of what is acceptable for minorities vs caucasians.
Exactly. It is racist in my book ,and its's a double standard that no one in the media calls him out about , which it pisses me off. I was watching the fights at Buffallo wild wings when he fought Lesnar,.and there was a large hispanic contingent there getting all riled up and talking crap in spanish, even though you could hear them talking in English at other times . The manager spoke spanish and made some guys leave when they called him a bunch of stuff they didn't think he could understand. It almost deteriorated to bunch of people fighting because one guy refused to leave and PD had to be called. When that guy finally left he gave everyone double middle fingers and yelled "Brown Pride maricons'" Anyway, it's divisive at the least. Even if it was Mexican Pride it would bother me. I am mostly Italian and Irish but if people ask me what I am I don't say white, Italian, or Irish. I just say American . Not : Italian American" ,or " Irish American. Just plain old American. All these little designations just seem to divide people in my opinion. America;s not perfect but too much bad and divisive stuff seems to happen under the guise of diversity the way I see it. As far as I;m concerned he should be proud of where he is. Also he was born in California ,so he is from America.
