UFC Heavyweight Champion Cain Velasquez Has ‘Brown Pride’

Though it has been a topic of conflict in the past UFC Heavyweight Champion Cain Velasquez’s ‘Brown Pride’ tattoo is not symbolic of his being a Latin gang member, it is meant to show his pride in being a Mexican fighter.  Critics have gone as far as calling the tattoo racist and have even associated the fighters chest piece with gang crime in Southern California. 

 ”I got this tattoo for two reasons. One, for everything my parents did to come over to this country, all the hardships they had crossing the border. ‘Brown pride’ when we were growing up meant ‘Mexican pride.’ That’s how we would say it,” said Velasquez. “Another reason why I got is because when I was growing up I didn’t have anybody to look up to…so now that I’m in that position, I put ‘Brown Pride’ on my chest to let people know ‘Hey, I’m Mexican. I’m proud to be Mexican. I’m doing good things.”

In honor of Velasquez’s journey to the top FOX Deportes ran a three part series based on the champion appropriately titled “Cain  Velasquez: Brown Pride.”

  16. I’m impressed, I must say. Rarely do I encounter a blog that’s both educative
    and engaging, and without a doubt, you have hit the nail on
    the head. The problem is an issue that not enough folks are speaking intelligently about.
    Now i’m very happy I found this in my hunt for something regarding this.

  17. When I originally commented I clicked the “Notify me when new comments are added” checkbox and now
    each time a comment is added I get several e-mails with the
    same comment. Is there any way you can remove people from that
    service? Many thanks!

  27. A bail bond agent, or bondsman, is any person or corporation that will act as a surety and pledge money or property as bail for the appearance of persons accused in court. Although banks, insurance companies and other similar institutions are usually the sureties on other types of contracts (for example, to bond a contractor who is under a contractual obligation to pay for the completion of a construction project) such entities are reluctant to put their depositors’ or policyholders’ funds at the kind of risk involved in posting a bail bond. Bail bond agents, on the other hand, are usually in the business to cater to criminal defendants, often securing their customers’ release in just a few hours. Bail bond agents are almost exclusively found in the United States and its former commonwealth, The Philippines. In most other countries bail is usually much less and the practice of bounty hunting is illegal.

  29. First of all I would like to say terrific blog!
    I had a quick question that I’d like to ask if you do not
    mind. I was curious to find out how you center yourself and clear your head before writing.

    I have had trouble clearing my mind in getting my ideas
    out there. I do take pleasure in writing but it just seems like the
    first 10 to 15 minutes tend to be lost just trying to figure out how to begin.
    Any suggestions or tips? Cheers!

    you are using under contract with some carrier. The unlocked version

    for i – Phone and prefer their old i – Phone. Insert a simcard from a different service provider
