Mayweather Won! Let the Racist and Homophobic Comments Begin?

Mayweather Won! The big question now is:

“Will many Filipinos now start hurling racist comments at Mayweather,  like negro, nognog, baluga, unggoy, sunog and Gayweather? Let’s wait if some Pinoys are good sport or some of us are just racists and homophobes. 

After following many reactions of some fans (the operative word is "some") throughout the years, racist slurs and homophobic comments are inevitable unless some of us Filipinos have changed. Will most of us take the high road?

Sadly, we need not look further for proof. Below are some comments taken from Facebook.

  1. I am not a fan of either Pacquiao or Mayweather, but in this situation I was rooting for Manny just because I'd rather have him win than Mayweather. It's very disappointing but a bit expected to read and hear all the derogatory comments against Mayweather after the announcement of his win. I am particularly upset about the "gayweather" name calling because it connotes that there is something negative about being gay. I am personally guilty of using the term before but I have learned that is is a very unpleasant term that people throw around very casually. I am trying to flush out this word and any other phrase that means something similar from my vocabulary because I believe it disrespects a lot of friends that I respect. I hope this is something that people can think about, understand, and learn from.

  2. OT:Last May 2 Manny did fine. He still fought and he never gave up. He is just stating that was bothering him which is his injured shoulder. He isn't being a complainer. He is fighter of the decade and still champ. Official Manny Pacquiao Website
