Same thing people would say about Joe Frazier and Muhammad Ali.
But for some reason white people loved Frazier and hated Ali.
It isn't always about skin tone per se, but rather what an individual represents as it relates to race.
Another example; Joe Namath was cool but Cam is brash and a me first guy.
In other words, at the risk of getting in trouble with the mods, it is okay that you are not white as long as you are humble and know your place.
Bravo... Well said Teeray, very well said.... Absolutely true and on the money.
