There’s a big UFC card in Mexico this weekend, main event by Heavyweight Champion Cain Velasquez vs. Interim Champion Fabricio Werdum. The main hook of the show is that Velasquez is the Mexican fighter returning home to Mexico to fight. He’s got a giant “Brown Pride” tattoo and everything. There’s only one problem… he’s not Mexican. Watch the video below to see him get called out on that around the 6:05 mark…
Don’t get me wrong, I don’t fault anyone for being proud of their heritage. I also don’t fault people who want to come to America to build a better life for themselves. Particularly one that they can’t build in the country they’re fleeing. America is kinda awesome like that.
But this is almost a microcosm of the problem with immigration culture today. They’re no longer proud of the country that afforded them all of this, but the country they fled because it couldn’t. Cain Velasquez is an All-American collegiate wrestler. All. American.
He was born in America, raised in America, went to school in America and makes his current living in America, with an American company. Yet instead of honoring that country, the only country in the world that could even come close to possibly affording him those opportunities, he decides to go with the super disingenuous, and borderline racist “Brown Pride” moniker inked across his chest.
What a fake dumbass. Rooting for Werdum on this one!
