Ahh … good ol’ Ireland. See, here’s the thing about Ireland: Racism is rampant there.
In a 2014 study from Enar, the European Network Against Racism (Ireland), it cited over 182 incidents of racist verbal abuse, violence, discrimination and other attacks toward Africans living in the country. And racism is also rampant in McGregor’s history of taunts and attempts to be “witty.”
It’s not just McGregor’s Tuesday press conference where he said, “Dance for me, boy!” It also happened in 2016 when McGregor called Nate Diaz a “cholo gangster from the hood.”
And when McGregor told Brazilian fighter Jose Aldo, “I own this town, I own Rio de Janeiro. I would invade his favela on horseback and would kill anyone who wasn’t fit to work, but we’re in a new time, so I’ll whoop his ass instead.”
