Non-white mixed martial artist Tyler Manawaroa is a contestant on the current season of the UFC’s reality program The Ultimate Fighter, but the organization recently announced that even if Manawaroa wins the reality show tournament, he will not be awarded a UFC contract. The reason? Manawaroa is guilty of the horrible crime of posting a racially insensitive picture online when he was 17-years-old.
Rather than demanding an apology and allowing Manawaroa to grovel and beg for forgiveness, the UFC has dismissed him outright. The tolerance police are becoming increasingly intolerant.
