Mike Tyson literally cashes in on big black buck archetype

by Carmen Van Kerckhove

Wow. Not only is Mike Tyson willing to fight women for a paycheck, now he’s signed up with Heidi Fleiss to become a prostitute. (Cue inappropriate Deuce Bigalow: Male Gigolo jokes here.) From Star Pulse:

Former boxing champion Mike Tyson is to become a male escort after agreeing to work at legendary Hollywood madam Heidi Fleiss’ new legalized brothel for women. Fleiss bought 60 acres of land in Nevada, and his work is scheduled to begin on Heidi’s Stud Farm.

She has high hopes for Tyson, once heavyweight champion of the world – despite the fact he is a convicted rapist.

She says, “I told him, ‘You’re going to be my big stallion.’ It’s every man’s fear that their girlfriend will go for Mike Tyson.”

Tyson, 40, adds, “I don’t care what any man says, it’s every man’s dream to please every woman – and get paid for it.”

Anti-Racist of the Week: Mutombo!

basketball mutombo racist fanThe start of the NBA season is just around the corner, which means more opportunities for me to find news that’s either related to (1) black people, (2) black people and their white friends, or (3) racist fans.

On Thursday night Houston Rockets center Dikembe Mutombo got into an altercation with a fan who allegedly yelled racist slurs at him, including the word “monkey”, during a preseason game against the Orlando Magic.

A video of the actual exchange wasn’t available on ESPN but we were able to see the actual fan who got kicked out of the building due to the slurs he yelled at Mutombo, who was born in the Congo.

On whether he would be fined for nearly going into the stands after the fan, Mutombo had these words:

I am not going to take that. He was insulting my race, my family, my integrity. For him to call me a monkey … that should not happen today.”

[…]

“If I get fined, I will go straight into the stands the next time.”

The saddest part about this entire thing is that the fan looked like a person of color. I could be wrong, but check the video out yourself.

My best friend, being the near perfect woman that she is, convinced me to join her in a salary cap fantasy basketball league this year. I’ve never done fantasy basketball (I’ve been too busy Crushing Ass in football), but it should give me good reason to watch NBA news more closely this year. I’m glad Mutombo stood up for himself. You’ve got to respect the man for that.

8 Words: Go Dikembe Mutombo Mpolondo Mukamba Jean Jacques Wamutombo!!!

Mike Tyson so desperate he’ll fight women

by Carmen Van Kerckhove

boxing mike tyson may fight women?Are Eddie Murphy and Mike Tyson being blackmailed or something? I just don’t understand why both are willing to do anything for a paycheck.

Last week we told you about Eddie Murphy’s latest travesty, in which he’ll double up on the buffoonery by playing both a mammy and an Asian man.

And now Mike Tyson has announced that he’s going to start fighting women (in the ring for once, hehe). From SI.com:

At a news conference at an Italian restaurant, Tyson said he would likely go just four rounds and that future stops on the tour might include bouts with women, possibly professional boxer Ann Wolfe. Wolfe, from Waco, Texas, is 21-1 with 15 knockouts.

“She’s such a prominent, dominant woman in the boxing field,” Tyson said.

When asked if he was joking about fighting women, Tyson said, “I’m very serious.”

Russ Young, a promoter for Wolfe, said such a bout will never happen.

“That’s the first we’ve heard of it,” Young said. “No state would sanction that. She would be outweighed by 60 to 70 pounds. Ann would never entertain the idea.”

It’s sad that this formerly great athlete has become such a freak show.
