Mike Tyson Timeline (Part 5 of 5)泰森沉浮录
May 1, 2002 - "I"m just like you. I enjoy the forbidden fruits in life, too. I think it"s un-American not to go out with a woman, not to be with a beautiful woman, not to get my dick sucked ... It"s just what I said before, everybody in this country is a big fucking liar. (The media) tells people ... that this person did this and this person did that and then we find out that we"re just human and we find out that Michael Jordan cheats on his wife just like everybody else and that we all cheat on our fucking wife in one way or another either emotionally, physically or sexually or one way."

May 1, 2002 - "There"s no one perfect. We"re always gonna do that. Jimmy Swaggart is lascivious, Tyson is lascivious -- but we"re not criminally, at least I"m not, criminally lascivious.
You know what I mean. I may like to fornicate more than other people -- it"s just who I am. I sacrifice so much of my life, can I at least get laid? I mean, I been robbed of my most of my money, can I at least get head without the people wanting to harass me and wanting to throw me in jail?"
May 1, 2002 - "I feel like sometimes that I was born, that I"m not meant for this society because everyone here is a fucking hypocrite. Everybody says they believe in God but they don"t do God"s work. Everybody counteracts what God is really about. If Jesus was here, do you think Jesus would show me any love? Do you think Jesus would love me? I"m a Muslim, but do you think Jesus would love me ... I think Jesus would have a drink with me and discuss ... why you acting like that? Now, he would be cool. He would talk to me. No Christian ever did that and said in the name of Jesus even ... They"d throw me in jail and write bad articles about me and then go to church on Sunday and say Jesus is a wonderful man and he"s coming back to save us. But they don"t understand that when he comes back, that these crazy greedy capitalistic men are gonna kill him again."

I know I was a tough, bad-ass talking fighter, but I ain"t no mob figure. I did my time for the rape. I paid my money to Las Vegas. I paid my dues.
