Floyd Mayweather Jr.’s apology for his racist rant against Manny Pacquiao hasn’t appeased the National Federation of Filipino American Associations (NaFFAA). The private, non-profit organization has condemned Mayweather’s outburst and is calling for boxing commissions to censure the fighter.
A statement from national chairman Greg Macabenta says:
“We are outraged by Mayweather’s racially offensive remarks. This disgusting diatribe against Pacquiao is a racial slur against all Filipinos and Filipino Americans and an embarrassment not only to the boxing community, but to all Americans. Talking trash may be common between boxing rivals, but Mayweather’s racially laced profanities brazenly crossed the line of decency and respectability.”
Macabenta also urged the NAACP and other civil rights organizations to denounce “this racist and homophobic rant” because “Mayweather’s apology is unacceptable and he must be made accountable for his damaging statements.”
Mayweather seems to do more talking than walking. Take it out in the ring!
