Earlier this year, an experienced black heavyweight boxer took a punch
to the side of his body near his heart and died a few minutes later. It
was just the first round. His opponent was white.
As I've written in other columns, boxing is a sport that largely gives
blacks an advantage over whites. This is so, because boxing is based on an
unwritten false assumption that the races of man are the same. This lie
leads to the false belief that all the races of man also have the same
weaknesses and the same strengths. As in many areas of life in our mad
world today, most people are afraid to point out simple truths about the
differences between the races lest they be called names. However, just
denying or ignoring the truth doesn't make it not true. The truth is
simple: the races of man are very different from each other in many ways.
Until white boxers understand this, they'll keep losing fights and simply
think that their opponents were better fighters or trained
Look at it this way. Suppose we had head butting contests in
which two white people would run at each other and butt heads. Other
things being equal, it would probably be a fair match. One would lose and
one would win. End of story. Now suppose that to the world of head butting
came Big Horn sheep. No matter how much the white person (or black, or
red, or yellow or brown person) trained, he would never win against the
Big Horn sheep. It's a little like that in boxing. Once, the sport was
segregated and this meant that racial advantages or disadvantages weren't
a factor. Then, when the sport was integrated, blacks came to dominate the
sport and whites faded. Why? Because, whites were doing a lesser version
of butting heads with Big Horn sheep.
Traditional boxing wisdom holds that a solid right cross to the
chin is the most likely punch to end a fight with a knockout.
Unfortunately, traditional boxing wisdom, like many of the things we have
been conditioned to believe, is based on the usually unspoken belief that
all people are really white people under their different paint jobs. Yes,
a right cross to the chin of a white boxer is the most likely punch to end
a fight with a knockout. However, a right cross to the chin of a black
fighter may not have the same effect.
In boxing, faster black reflexes translate into faster hands and feet.
What does this really mean? Ever try to catch a healthy fly with your bare
hands? It's difficult to do because the fly has more hard wiring from its
eye to its brain to its wings. Flies can react so much faster than humans
that it almost seems as though they can read our minds. Black reflexes
aren't that good, but black boxers can often react just a tiny bit faster
than white boxers and beat whites to the punch.
The best punches by the white fighter will often be combinations
built around quick jabs to the chest area or to the neck followed by
immediate left and right hooks over the jabs to the neck area. The key is
to throw the hooks without thinking. They have to be automatic to have the
fly swatter effect. Jab, jab, jab, right hook. Jab jab, right hook. Jab,
jab, right hook, left hook. Jab, hook. These punches must be thrown
without waiting for an opening, because there usually isn't enough
reaction time for the eye to see the opening, send a signal to the brain
and then have the signal go to the arm to throw a punch. The black hands
are quicker than the white eye in this case. If done correctly, the power
of the right hooks to the neck area will be increased because the black
may be moving to that side to avoid the left jabs.
I saw a film clip on TV a couple of years ago in which a black
guy tore off his shirt (apparently to show his muscles and intimidate his
opponent) and ran across a street to attack a white guy. The white guy
just stood there and when the black was right in front of him, the white
guy hit the black with a karate chop to the side of the neck. The black
guy's legs got rubbery and he just collapsed in the street. That was a
In a much publicized incident in Cincinnati this
month, a 350-400 pound black man died after an altercation with police
officers who were trying to get him to comply with their orders. Because
most of the police officers were white, there is the usual outcry from the
black community about white racism and police brutality. I saw the video
and I also heard a liberal TV lawyer yelling how horrible it was that the
police were beating the man on the head. Actually, it wasn't the blows to
the head that created the problem. The man appears to have died because
his heart stopped after being hit in the area near his heart. Not everyone
(and not every black) dies when hit in this area, and it usually just
incapacitates most people who are hit there. Authorities say that the man
who died had an enlarged heart and this contributed to his death. As far
as I know, no one has said anything about blacks, as a race, being weaker
in this area. To say such a thing would be the equivalent of saying that
blacks and whites are different and this would be, oh, you know, racist.
In defense of the officers, who critics said "beat" the black guy,
Roger Webster, president of the police union, described the officers' use
of nightsticks in the following way: "It's a jab maneuver into the side of
the torso. It's not a beating." A "jab...into the side of the torso"? Sort
of like a punch thrown into the side of the torso near the heart by a
boxer? Sort of like the relatively soft punch that killed the black boxer
mentioned at the start of this column? Certainly, these jabs weren't
intended to kill anyone and probably wouldn't have, had the black guy been
a white guy. Yes, the police just like boxers and most other people in our
society are all laboring under the false premise that all the races of man
are the same.
What about boxing non-whites who aren't black or blacks who have
a lot of white genes? Skin color is still a guide. Two rules of thumb
might be: 1. The darker the skin the stronger the chin; the lighter the
skin the weaker the chin. 2. If he's dark the neck and heart, attack; but
if he's light, it's the chin you fight.
