Floyd Mayweather

Over the weekend, one of my loyal readers emailed me audio of Power 105's The Breakfast Club poking fun at boxer Floyd Mayweather's alleged illiteracy.

For instance, the media chose to ignore positive imagery of Mike Brown wearing his high school graduation cap and gown. He was set to start college today.

Black Twitter united to expose the news media's racist agenda by creating the hashtag #IfTheyGunnedMeDown.

In an interview, she said:

"I went so far to the other side that there's only one place to go from there. You can either continue doing costumes or you can just say, 'Hey guess what? This will shock them even more. Doing nothing will shock them even more.'"
