I decided to contact Melvin Costa yesterday in order to get his side of the story in regarding to the recent distribution of pictures on the Internet that show Costa with a swastika on his chest.

After speaking with Costa, I briefly thought about whether I should give him a platform to express views that I think could be hurtful and offensive. However, while I didn't agree with very much of what he said, the one point where he and I are in agreement is when it comes to his assertion that he should be allowed to express his views. I called the man for comment and he gave it to me so what kind of journalist would I be if I censored it just because I don't agree with it?

FYI Costa is not a Neo-Nazi according to his own words.
He also holds a 4-0 record in KOTC
No Word on whether he has signed to a pro elite org.

No major org with a TV or PPV deal will sign a guy with a huge swastika on his chest. Period.

I heard that gary shaw has been contacted about this and is "taking care" of the situation and talking to the KOTC president about the situation

on a side note did you also know that he has a tattoo on his stomach that says I Have A Small Penis.

I agree with everything he says, I just don't agree with the way he portrays himself. I dont like his Swastika, and I also don't like Rampage's black panther.

Great interveiw Sam. I believe in Free Speach and when you have that, you have people that will express believes that run counter to your own. But that is what makes this country great. The right to believe the way you want.

I am white and I love you I am. But I am also ashamed of some things my race has done. Be proud of who you are. But what he has will cause problems. That's like me wearing a white hood and then saying, I don't believe in everything that Klan does, but I love my race. The Swastika stands for hate, pure and simple. Hitler hated everyone who wasn't white. At the 1936 Games he refused to shake Jesse Owens hand.

it stands for the purity of my people's blood. It doesn't stand for hating jews or any other ethnic race


What a muppet. Try telling that to the relatives who suffered during WWII.

I think that particular black panther is a generic tattoo used by artists all over the world - I don't believe it is intended as support for the Black Panther Party below:

That may be true, but that works both ways. The swastika symbol was around long before the nazi party, and it had nothing to do with hating Jews.

Who said it did?

It's what it clearly signifies to the majority of the rational world that's important. You simply can't put a symbol of that nature on your body, go sporting it around, and explain your way out of it, as 'It's OK though, I don't hate Jews' - what a ridiculous notion.

Yeah, the histrionics of the Swastika as a symbol did predate Nazi Germany and the Nazi Party, but that is completely irrelevant in this situation, given what occurred thereafter.

People don't get their body permanently marked with symbols of such controversy without having thought it out, and how it would be perceived by the majority who view it.

You can't defend the indefensible.

EDIT:

Incidently, it isn't just a Swastika, it is an Eagle Swastika. Are you gonna tell me that predated Nazi Germany?
