COMMENTARY FROM THE PAST


BAD BOY OF BODYBUILDING - ROBBY ROBINSON

MR. FLORIDA 1975 WINNER - "MOST MUSCULAR MAN" AWARD, 
BEST ARMS, BACK AND CHEST WINNER, 
ROBBY ROBINSON, WITH SON ROBBY ROBINSON III

STAN MOREY WAS ONE OF THE TOP POWER PROMOTERS, BUSINESSMEN THAT PROTECTED ME FROM THE RACIST SYSTEM OF THE SOUTH DURING MY COMPETITIVE DAY AS AN AAU AMATEUR, WHICH WAS CONTROLLED BY PERRY READER, OWNER OF IRONMAN MAG.

STAN FOUGHT FOR ME SO I COULD COMPETE AND ENTER AAU COMPETITIONS IN THE SOUTH.

HE HELD MY PHYSIQUE IN HIGH REGARDS WHILE I WAS COMING THOUGH THE RANKS. 

MR. MOREY WAS THE MAN THAT DISCOVERED ME AND PUSHED ME TO JOIN THE WEIDER BODYBUILDERS IN LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA - NOT JOE WEIDER AS IT HAS BEEN PUBLISHED IN MAGAZINES FOR YEARS.


STAN MOREY'S SUPPORT ENHANCED MY PRESENCE AND NOTORIETY

HE WAS THE ONE THAT MADE THE CALL TO THE GOVERNOR ABOUT THIS INCREDIBLE BLACK BODYBUILDER THAT WAS DESTINED FOR GREATER THINGS.

HE CALLED ARNOLD A FRIEND, ASKING HIM TO SET UP AN APPOINTMENT WITH ME AND WEIDER. IT NEVER HAPPENED...

ALSO FOR SOME REASON THE GOVERNOR WAS NOT AVAILABLE ON MY ARRIVAL DATE AT THE LA AIRPORT.


WITHOUT STAN I WOULD HAVE GOTTEN LOST IN THE MIST OF RACISM AND BAD BEHAVIOR.

BELOW ARE SOME OF HIS COMMENTS AND INSIGHT ON THE DEVELOPMENT OF THE BAD BOY OF BODYBUILDING - ROBBY ROBINSON.
PEACE , ROBBY

Robby,
I cannot believe you answered. By the way did you know John Mese died. He was indicted for murder, and died in jail. He and Weider sued me, but they lost, however it was financially devastating. You know you would have NEVER won the MR. FL with him and his buddies promoting. I remember you coming in 3d in Mr. Fl to Kent Kuehn, then winning the Greater Mr. FL a few minutes later. It was hell being the Black Prince then.

I was born in the Harlem hospital, was of Puerto Rican heritage. and was raised in Harlem. I could sense how you felt, because I went through similar experiences, but I was white so I could hide. 
Another reminiscence. Remember Ivor Butcher? We went to Miami, he rode with me. We went to a famous restaurant called "The Green Turtle". Obviously, at that time "No Blacks allowed", I said Ivor was my brother, and we dined. However, we got many looks. 
I remember when I first came to Florida, there were white and black toilets and water fountains, blacks had to sit in the back of the bus. A kid from Harlem, this was all very strange to me. I thought the toilets were painted different colors. In High school at the time in Florida there were no blacks.

Times have changed! or have they?

Robby,
How old id your son now? He must be really grown up. It was amazing that some of the bodybuilders were able to survive the outright corruption, dishonesty, and criminality that existed in our sport. You had to play the game their way, or not at all. I saw many potential careers ruined. However, it did not matter in many cases whether you were gay, straight, black or otherwise-you just had to do it their way. I know it devastated my family financially. I never wanted my children to follow me in the sport. It has left many people bitter. Carlos Rodriguez, Dennis Stallard, Pete Miller and I founded the WPF, and had many Mr. Universe and America contest(s). The WPF still exists in Europe and Australia, but after Carlos died of Cancer, I just gave up. The sport now is all drugs, with competitors dying in their 30's. Our sport could be so good.
