This is the most racist article I've ever read[edit]

Irishman? "The black"? Who wrote this, a stormfronter?

Not to mention the lack of any mentioning to his racism towards Jack Johnson. This article reeks of white pride, tbqh... — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2600:1001:B02B:29D8:21C0:D7ED:A0D5:D0BC (talk) 20:20, 9 August 2017 (UTC)

ZERO mention of how racist James Jeffries was. How typical. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 98.216.111.130 (talk) 19:37, 29 August 2011 (UTC)
Agreed, this is quite a flawed article - Jeffries refused to fight Johnson for years because he was black. Also, it makes out Jeffries was in bad shape for the fight - he'd been training for almost a year for it, and was no where near 300lbs when he fought. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 129.31.194.64 (talk) 14:39, 4 March 2012 (UTC)
