Imbecilic Floyd Mayweather Jr. Lights $100 Bill on Fire When Black Male Unemployment rates above 20 percent

My Uncle was big on talking about stupidity. He would always tell me two things: “the difference between genius and stupidity is that genius has it limits” and “the wise understand themselves and fools go on the reports of others.”

I cannot tell you if they were passed down by the family or old sayings or if he picked them up reading – he did read a lot. I wonder if he would have used these and a few more to describe the actions of Floyd Mayweather Jr. Now for the record, I suspect many of us know that he is not the sharpest knife in the drawer, but he can fight and has managed to amass a fortune from his skill set.

However, his decisions continue to show a person that either lacks common sense or is completely out of touch with reality in the fashion the selfish often abjure. Recently, the boxer was caught on film setting a $100biill on fire, while partying with Lil Kim and Gucci Mane at the Velvet Room. I guess Floyd has never read that it is a felony to burn money and that such comes with a penalty of up to six months behind bars, and a fine of $100.

Just last month, Mayweather jr. was ordered by a Federal Magistrate to give sworn testimony under oath concerning a defamation suit filed against him by Congressman Manny Pacquiao based on Mayweather's defamatory statements accusing Pacquiao of taking performance-enhancing drugs.

Upon this, the 33-year-old Mayweather has amassed eight misdemeanor and felony charges stemming from a Sept. 9, 2010 dispute with his former girlfriend, Josie Harris.

This is one of the dumbest things I have seen in recent days, albeit the scandal in Atlanta where teachers were caught cheating and not the students is right up there. This is another example of how many in the lime light are not in tune with the general public, for example the more than 20 percent of black males who are not employed or the millions who are struggling to keep a roof over their family’s heads.

If my uncle had known about William Gaddis, I think he would have agreed with him when he stated, “stupidity is the deliberate cultivation of ignorance. .
