PHILADELPHIA– Boxer Bernard Hopkins hinted to a reporter that he felt Donovan McNabb is a “house-negro” or uncle tom during a Philadelphia Daily news interview.
“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, patting a reporter on the back in illustration. “He thought he was one of them.”
