Bernard Hopkins has been a vocal critic of Donovan McNabb going back to when the latter was a quarterback for the Philadelphia Eagles. Some of those comments over the years have been about McNabb’s alleged lack of mental toughness on the field. Others, like when I interviewed B-Hop back in 2009, criticized McNabb for being a house Negro. Today, Hopkins’ comments hit the national media via a quote to the Philadelphia Daily News stating that McNabb’s “privileged childhood” is the reason he’s not “black enough” or “tough enough.” Furthermore, he states that McNabb has a “suntan” and isn’t really black. Mighty convenient for this to go national just a week out from his championship rematch with Jean Pascal. Below you can check out ESPN’s coverage/outrage at Hopkins’ comments.
