Rapper T.I. Calls Out Boxer Floyd Mayweather For Saying "All Lives Matter"

Rapper T.I. Calls Out Boxer Floyd Mayweather For Saying "All Lives Matter"  
BHR Hollywood Reports..........If you recall back to Memorial Day Weekend 2014, Tip and Money Mayweather’s beef came to actual blows (at a Vegas FatBurger because, of course) and their issues haven’t been resolved since.

After soaking up Mayweather’s interview with The Boxing Voice, a visibly peeved, yet composed T.I. proceeded to educate the undefeated boxing champ on the dangers simply stating “all lives
matter” can carry. Like so many before him, Mayweather subconsciously inserted an “only” in the Black Lives Matter quote where there previously wasn’t one.

Tip has addressed the boxer on Instagram, calling his remarks "socially irresponsible, inconsiderate, and insensitive."

From there, he asked Floyd to acknowledge his role as a leader, and take responsibility. "Don’t get so lost in personal possession or individual achievement that you lose sight of the things that are larger than all of us," he said. "Freedom, equality, justice, human rights,qualities of life that have been withheld (or given out sparingly) from our people for generations (400 yrs approximately)."

He then criticized Floyd's suggestion that "it’s not right what is going on in this world on both sides."

"Oppression knows no neutral ground," argues Tip. "Either you’re the oppressed,or you’re the
oppressor. What side would you like to believe you’re on?"

In closing, he assured Mayweather that his advice was to be taken respectfully, "Just know I ain't looking to clown you,I'm just trying to enlighten you,hoping that with better insight you can use your powers for good," he wrote.

Yo, @floydmayweather all our past personal differences & opinions of each other aside.... This is socially irresponsible,inconsiderate,& insensitive. It mirrors delusional oblivion in a way only brainwashing tactics can achieve. This completely undermines & discredits the movements that fight for the plights of our people. You're a leader whether you know it or not. Don't get so lost in personal possession or individual achievement that you lose sight of the things that are larger than all of us. Freedom, equality, justice, human rights,qualities of life that have been withheld (or given out sparingly) from our people for generations (400 yrs approximately). A true champion is a man of the people. A true champion makes sacrifices for the people & takes a stand against injustices for those who may not be strong enough or able to do so. A true champion is great inside as well as out. There's a difference in "Greatness" & being "Great" at something. "Greatness" isn't a measure of your abilities & accomplishments, "Greatness" is a measure of your morals,integrity & principles throughout life. Oppression knows no neutral ground. Either you're the oppressed,or you're the oppressor. What side would you like to believe you're on? While some will try to make this more critical than I hope for it to seem...it must be said. The world is watching. I have an obligation to myself & those who follow me to address this. Just know I ain't looking to clown you,I'm just trying to enlighten you,hoping that with better insight you can use your powers for good. Respectfully...-King #USorELSE
