    Bernard Hopkins rips Donovan McNabb
    ESPN.com news services

    Boxer Bernard Hopkins, a Philadelphia Eagles fan, has ripped Donovan McNabb before. On Tuesday, he took his apparent disdain for the quarterback to another level.

    Hopkins, in Philadelphia for his May 21 fight against Jean Pascal, invited reporters to watch him train Tuesday and decided to take additional verbal jabs at McNabb and even implied that the Washington Redskins quarterback wasn't black enough.

    "Forget this," Hopkins said, according to the Philadelphia Daily News, and pointed to his own skin. "He's got a suntan. That's all."

    According to Hopkins, McNabb had a privileged upbringing in Chicago and isn't as tough as himself, current Eagles quarterback Michael Vick or Cincinnati Bengals receiver Terrell Owens, who famously had a falling out with McNabb before being released by Philadelphia in 2006. Hopkins said Tuesday that McNabb and Owens essentially didn't speak the same language.

    "T.O. got [into] the boardroom and saw the way they talked to McNabb. Coming from where he [came from] -- that's strange to some white people, when a black man speaks," Hopkins said, according to the Daily News. He said Owens "[wasn't] used to this language. [He's] used to speaking up.' "

    Hopkins said that is why McNabb felt a sense of betrayal when he was traded by the Eagles to the Redskins before last season.

    "Why do you think McNabb felt he was betrayed? Because McNabb is the guy in the house, while everybody else is on the field. He's the one who got the extra coat. The extra servings. 'You're our boy,' " Hopkins said, according to the Daily News, and patted a member of the media on the back to illustrate his point. "He thought he was one of them."

    When contacted by the Daily News, McNabb's publicist said the quarterback would not have a comment.

    While he questioned McNabb's mettle, Hopkins didn't take a shot at McNabb's integrity.

    "Nice guy. I'd trust him around my kids," Hopkins said, according to the Daily News.

    So Hopkins thinks he is akin to the slaves in the field and McNabb is akin to the favored house servant?

    Stupid.

    Very stupid. So because McNabb had a good upbringing, hasn't been to prison, has a little respect for those around him, etc. he isn't black enough or touch enough. Give me a ****ing break! :rolleyes: This isn't just a problem here either, it is a big problem within the black community.

    Black people only come from the ghetto, and it is a requirement that they are arrogant, rude and use poor English. :rolleyes:

    Why some black people want to bring other black people down for being middle/upper class is beyond me.

    McNabb has no street cred. He's basically a house *****. Yes, masta, no masta.

    I won't pretend to know you, but other than celebrities (athletes, rappers, movie stars, etc) I've never known a successful person who cared about "street cred." "Street cred" seems to be the comfort of losers.

    How does this qualify as news? Who f***ing cares what Hopkins thinks about anything unrelated to boxing? Besides the fact that his reasoning is incredibly stupid, this is completely pointless.

    It's kind of funny if you take it for what it is. Hopkins is a clown.

    I don't get it... He went to high school with Antoine Walker ... I believe Simeon Rice and a few others went there as well. It isn't really a rich kids school or upbringing... very much inner city Chicago area...

    Why does McNabb have so many people that just hate him? He seems like a nice guy -- I don't get it.
