Politics should be kept out of certain areas of day-to-day life. If we’re going to slam actors and directors for bringing up politics at award ceremonies, then we should probably shame athletes for introducing politics into their respective fields.
Boxer Rod Salka entered the ring last Thursday wearing a pair of “America First” shorts, somewhat distastefully patterned with the “border wall” Trump wishes to build in order to separate the United States and Mexico. Salka is free to support the President if he chooses, but his shorts could be considered offensive, especially considering Salka’s opponent was Francisco Vargas, who happens to be Mexican. Also, the fight was taking place in California, where Boxing is very popular with Mexican-Americans.
Salka was throwing obvious shade big time, but it did little to help him win the fight. He took plenty of punches but was barely able to touch Vargas. In the fifth round, Vargas delivered a vicious uppercut to Salka, which knocked him senseless. Salka got back up to finish the round, but wouldn’t last through many more. He stayed upright through the sixth, but before the seventh, his corner called it quits, handing the win to Vargas.
Just like the wall this dude couldn’t stop just one Mexican.
