Floyd Mayweather Jr.

February 29, 2012 by staff 

Floyd Mayweather Jr., Floyd Mayweather wasn’t backing down from comments he has made about Jeremy Lin, the New York Knicks’ point guard, or restraining himself from taking a jab at Manny Pacquiao — even though he isn’t fighting Pacquiao any time soon.

“Like I said, the media always take your words and screw ’em up,” Mayweather said at a press conference for his May 5 fight with Miguel Cotto. “They failed to say that I said the guy was a good player.”

Mayweather drew criticism for tweeting: “Jeremy Lin is a good player but all the hype is because he’s Asian. Black players do what he does every night and don’t get the same praise. … Other countries get to support/cheer their athletes and everything is fine. As soon as I support Black American athletes, I get criticized. … I’m speaking my mind on behalf of other NBA players. They are programmed to be politically correct and will be penalized if they speak up.”
