Can we separate Mayweather and McGregor from the abuse and racism?

Since the hype arounf 'The Money Fight, Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor have shot into the spotlight and lots has been written and said about the two.

But both men have categorically denied allegations of abuse and racism.

Mayweather, a repeat abuser of women, has been implicated in several cases of assault against five different women.

McGregor has been confronted for using racial insults against Mayweather, such as telling him to “dance for me, boy,”

He, however, insists that he cannot be racist because he’s “black from the belly button down.”

Eusebius McKaiser takes a look at the bigotry and abuse of sportsmen, as well as the support they consistently garner despite their violent nature.

Is it possible to compartmentalise the life of brilliant people? Can you say I really love Eusebius and his talk show, it's a pity that he has got these flaws, but I don't think about the flaws when I tune in?

Eusebius McKaiser, 702/CapeTalk anchor

Here is what some listeners had to say.

I feel that we should actually be ashamed of our selves that 400 odd million dollars could have gone towards far more needing things....

Pete, 702 caller

If you are aware of a persons transgressions it is very difficult to support them...if we are gong to combat discrimination in this world , we need to do it wholeheartedly against anyone who contravenes the rights that we stand up for.
