I feel in my heart that it is important to shed some light on this week’ earlier events, regarding Tyler Manawaroa’s “racist instagram photo.”

Kajan seems like a good guy for the sport. I've been rooting for him since his first fight.

Since the show has already happened and we are watching prerecorded episodes up until the finale, I think it would be too funny that Manowaroa beats him on the show and that was his revenge.

Kajan fights at 170 on the show.

This makes me angry. (A) Fuck people calling racist, it's 2014, everyone's racist. And (B) Manawaroa is 'black' himself, Maori in NZ identify with African Americans and call themselves niggers (haha autocorrect was trying to get me to say muggers) and people refer to them negatively as such also. I don't blame him, jokes are funny, he wasn't being serious, he didnt deserve to lose his job/contract.

Really dude, if people are not racist or agreeable to racism they need to fuck off? You're cool.

No, I mean if people can't handle a racist joke without screaming racism they can fuck the fuck off, I'm getting the feeling you belong to this category.
Racism can be hilarious.

So? He lost his job over a joke 18 months ago before he was famous. Whether it was funny or not is a moot point.

All I can think of is Clayton Bigsby(Dave Chappelle) as the black white supremacist. Irrelevant but kind of relevant.

Major over reaction on Kajan's part. Yeah I understand he found it very personal to him but the punishment tyler now gets in not being able to fight in the UFC is way over the top. It's just a silly situation that never should have happened.
