    i am the last one to race bait shit, but i dont know how else i can understand that Gaethje quote??

    I lived in a country where you would lose your job immediately if you said something like this and i am not even exaggerating..

    Barboza lives in the US and he has a american citizenship.

    This is nothing new

    Country vs country fights have been built up before. Ireland vs Brazil, USA vs Brazil, ect.

    I'm sure the Brazilians love it when they fight Americans because the crowd in Brazil really gets behind them more than usual

    Nationality isn’t race
    Religion isn’t race
    People should know the difference

    I think he wanted the opportunity to get fans to rally behind him, and entering the cage with an American flag helps tremendously.
    But it would be meaningless if he fought another American.

    I don't think it's racist.

    Weird though.

    Gaethje is also on video calling Michael Johnson uneducated which is a common racial insult towards African Americans. So this isn’t the first time.

    Definitely something to keep in mind.

    Not everything is hacist.

    Foreigner just means someone outside of your country. It doesn't signify a racial make-up. There are plenty of European and other same racial background individuals living in different countries to one another.
