I would have said, "Well, one monkey doesn't stop the show, I'll take bag of dry dog food looking ass elsewhere, See ya!!" I'd also say, "Next time you pass a mirror, take a glance."

He could've put it differently. Some mixed martial artists are for real gentlemen and some are fools. He knocked out a few teeth from the mother of his children. That's why he's been suspended from the UFC.

He sounds exactly like the type of man male troglodyte who would batter women, and if he's knocking women's teeth out, he should be more than 'suspended' from the UFC; it takes a lot of force to knock someone's teeth out.

The way black men, woman & children are being slaughtered by white police officers and gun toting white (civilian) racists, his ass should be shunned, shamed and suspended indefinitely for spousal abuse and his use of intimidation tactics in the gym.

Michael, listen, by really giving more, $$,$$$,$$$, you will exemplify a spirit of generosity in how we help one another and connect with one another. You want that?! Meet the challenge like a great man. By giving greatly, you will emanate real care to all. You still get to keep your millions and millions, but now you exemplify fatherly care to your people by creating institutions, for example, that economically lift up the youth. Will you do all that? If not, you should be bitch-slapped!

Hell, how about including Blacks in your business, creating jobs for Blacks, underwriting businesses that serve the Black community. Doing such will do more than just a shot in the arm but will create economic institutions Blacks can thrive on and he still makes a profit. The irony is, he does it all the time but with white people.

It's kinda funny that the NBA people I listed above who gave the most HAPPEN to have been married to Black women at the time of those deals they made. Coincidence?

Laziness and "living within your means" are two of the myths that have been repeatedly debunked yet continue to be a major part of commentary no matter where this subject comes up. The idea of living within your means is very attractive to those who stress the need for self responsibility and accountability. The problem is that social economic conditions are just that---social. When we are told to 'live within our means' what is almost always ignored is the declining value of "your means".
