    It's only racist if a white man says it.
    Here are the facts:
    Diaz is probably 95% Caucasian.
    Diaz, and the rest of the UFC, have insinuated racist comments referencing McGregor's Irish heritage (one of the most berated heritages in Europe)
    Diaz (based off memory) has called McGregor a leprechaun mother fucker, a direct insult at his ethnicity - similarly to McGregor calling Diaz a cholo.

    He should've said he'd celebrate his win with a fajita and a Corona. Someone made a similar statement once and it also caused a bit of crying and wringing of the panties around here.

    I like it how everybody who sits here and says "toughen up" would never in their life call a Latino a fajita, burrito or etc in to their face. Little keyboard warriors.

    An insult isn't very effective if it doesn't offend

    You'd still probably get your ass kicked if you called him an ice cream sandwich.

    Yea but the fact remains, you can't call a Latino or a Mexican a "fajita" then claim it isn't racist the way Conor fans are. Its every bit as racist as calling him a taco or a beaner.

    That's not racism though. "Irish" is a nationality.

    Of course he is using it as a provocation, but there is this thing called context, he didn't approach some guy from the street, Nate disrespect him also, and guess what, they are gonna climb on a cage and fight, this is a brutal sport and doesn't need a bunch of sensitive people getting offended over dumb comments from Conor, Joe or anyone.

    I actually thought the thing that was going to get him into trouble was when he was talking about fighters and their "vaginas." I joke around like that with my friends, but it's not really appropriate on the big stage. The UFC has chick fighters now, and feminists will jump all over that sh*t........

    When Dana is riding your dick, you can say whatever the fuck you want. This isn't an actual sporting league.

    So this is racist but calling McGregor a leprechaun isn't?

    But according to "anti-PC" shertards that's "ANTI-WHYTE". As we know white men are totally oppressed.

    Yeah because that's the worst double standard in the world, it's critizing whites for once. Anti-PC neckbeards get so triggered over others getting triggered.
