Lol no one is ever going to forget about Hogan, he is wrestling. And this is done and over with, hes back where he belongs in the WWE.
yup and the funny thing is how adored ric flair is in the black community.. like he prally still dont like yall!i always bring up shoot interviews.
there are hundreds if not thousands of shoot interviews out there from various wrestlers throughout history. they all talk shit about other wrestlers, air their dirty laundry and make accusations and whatnot.
hogan has been mentioned in PLENTY of them, and he has been called everything under the sun. liar, schemer, manipulator, adulterer, a selfish asshole... but he has never been accused of being a racist. not even by those who can't stand him.
meanwhile teddy long said FLAT OUT that ric flair called him a n----r to his face and no one batted an eye. no outrage, no petition, no removal from the HOF... none of that.
so either the outrage is truly selective or i guess people assume teddy long is just a liar.
what can i say i don't read the situation the same as you do, especially when you hear the audio.While you can certainly be a rich piece of shit, that's not the argument you were trying to make, and we both know it. Hogan didn't make a statement that implies "hey I don't want my daughter dating terrible men". He made a statement on how he's racist and would prefer his daughter not date n*ggers, after fucking his best friends wife.
what can i say i don't read the situation the same as you do, especially when you hear the audio.
"i'm racist a to a point, fucking n----rs"... looks bad when you read it because there is no tonal context whatsoever. but when you listen to the audio it's clear there's no malice and he was just talking shit.
before going on about it he even starts out by saying "i'm not a double standards type of guy"... as in he DOESN'T have a problem with her seeing a black guy. THEN he juxtaposes his degree of racism, in this case calling black people n---rs.
if the most racist thing he's capable of is using the term n----r in an offshoot manner when nobody is around... then his racist tendencies are no different than anyone else's. believe me every single black person in america has said backhanded things about white people too, whether it was in jest or otherwise. it doesn't mean they are full blown racists.
people talk shit.
snoop dogg called him an "honorary black person" in the epsn doc, whatever that's supposed to mean.yup and the funny thing is how adored ric flair is in the black community.. like he prally still dont like yall!
snoop dogg called him an "honorary black person" in the epsn doc, whatever that's supposed to mean.
and again i don't even know if ric flair is a racist or to what degree he is a racist, but the fact is barely anybody had anything to say about him after the teddy long interview. there was no smoke at all.
ric flair committed the unforgivable sin of saying something racist... to a black man's face no less... and he gets to be called an honorary black person on espn. the purity brigade just has a history of being very, very inconsistent when it comes to these things.
again i know it's not wrestling related but cardi b confessed she used to drug men and rob them, yet it's turned into a complete non story. her image has taken little to no damage. talk about double standards.
LMAOThat says it all.
Imbeciles like the British inbred I quoted have always hated Hogan. The faux-racism he allegedly spewed is just a cheap justification for that hatred.
To those of us who don't suffer from HDS (Hulkster Derangement Syndrome), we realize they were just words. Words, said in the privacy of his own home, and said in the heat of the moment.
I don't care about words. I care about actions. And decades of Hogan's actions show he is in a no way a racist.
Bottom line: get over it, you whiny fucking snowflakes.
Speaking of, have Big E or the New Day tweeted/taken a stand regarding the outcome of the Jussie Smollett farce (was caught lying dead to rights and didn't face a single day of jail time and continued to lie)? Likely not.Hogan made some very stupid remarks-- and was immediately portrayed as a grand wizard of the KKK. I could understand the ongoing resentment, if there was a documented history of Hogan harboring hatred and taking action (i.e. discriminating against black wrestlers). Everyone has said hurtful things they're ashamed of.
Just this week, Big E even tried to get all self-righteous on Twitter about it. Despite his flaws, Hogan is the biggest star in the history of professional wrestling and put it on the mainstream map. If Hogan never rose to prominence, the WWE and professional wrestling as we know it today might not exist-- and Big E wouldn't have his lucrative seven-figure job.
