Floyd Mayweather decided to stop by TMZ Sports TV last night for an interview and was questioned about a few statements he recently made about Conor McGregor, Ronda Rousey, and racism. He also decided to talk about what’s going on with Bill Cosby and went on to say:
“Racism still exists. That’s no different from the Bill Cosby situation. What he did is not right, but there’s so much police brutality out there. There’s things that we don’t talk about. There’s a lot of young black males and females being killed by police, being beat up by police, but those are things we don’t talk about. We would rather talk about stuff with Bill Cosby that happened 30 or 40 years ago.”
Mayweather was then asked if he thinks racism has a role in the Cosby scandal. He didn’t exactly say that racism played a part, but went on to say that the way Jared Fogle and Woody Allen were covered differently by the media than Cosby.
“From what I heard, there was a guy that was with Subway. There’s another guy—is that Woody Allen? Those things are going on, but we seem to turn our heads the other way and don’t look at things like that.”
May weather then went on to talk further about Cosby stating:
“I think there’s more important things in the world that we need to worry about than something that happened over 30 or 40 years ago.”
