Racism in martial arts has been a common allegation, which is true;
Racism in martial arts has been around for years, so it's not new.

The late Bruce Lee had stated that racism was practiced in the martial arts in Hong Kong, which is a fact;
The late founder of American ninjitsu, Ron Duncan, had stated that he was denied recognition by Black Belt magazine because he was black.

The Black Karate Federation was formed so that black fighters could get equal treatment in karate tournaments, which is great;
Racism is one of the things that I really hate.

On the web TV show, Iron Fist, the white martial arts hero named Iron Fist would battle the villains who were yellow;
Here are more things about racism in martial arts that you should know.

The media often portrays yellow people as proficient martial artists, while lacking other defining qualities;
Racists need to be stung by a bunch of bees.

The first black MMA champions, Maurice Smith and the late Kevin Randleman, wouldn't receive media attention, which really stinks;
Racists are total finks.

The UFC light heavyweight champion, Jon Jones, isn't as popular as he could be and I'll tell you why;
It's because he's black and that's no lie.

Racism in martial arts is occurring everyday;
Racism really ***** and that's all I have to say.
