Most people didn't want to realize Ali was a racist. And he wasn't just your average racist - Ali was a hardcore racist and proponent of segregation.

Piers Morgan had a great article over the weekend describing how Ali said far more racist things than Trump could ever dream of uttering.

Definitely a top five boxer of all-time but was a disgusting racist pig who was a piece of sh*t coward who wouldn't serve his country when they asked him to fight for it.

Great boxer, horrible human being.

Some people are too fixated on his amazing athletic accomplishments to realize what kind of person he really was.

Imagine for a second what the left's reaction would be if instead of Ali, it was Trump saying this crap.

the rights reaction to Trump's saying and DOING worse ... like discriminating at his businesses would be... is
"That's Not racist" "He's not Racist" "I don't see any racism" "He's not PC and just says what REAL americans think..
and the classic "If it's TRUUUE... (insert foot deeper in mouth here)"

Ali did a lot of good too. He was a decent father, did a lot for charities, and entertained us all for decades.

RIP

At first I didn't like Ali when I heard him bost he was outspoken. But watching his first heavy weight fight to take the title.. That changed it all. Any man who could hit like that was allowed to say what he liked...

Like most I started to read about Ali, and was impressed when you got non fight details...
He was a mans man, a member of his community... The one thing that did not square well with me was his not joining the Military.

But it was his business, not mine. It seemed back then America was at involved in some sort of fighting every 20 years or so... I and most everyone I knew thought it would be over quickly.

Except my father. As a going away gift he gave me a copy of the "Art Of War."

And I to learned why it would become a dragged out painful thing... I got back to see Ali fight some more but he wasn't quite the same either...


R.I.P. Mr. Muhammad Ali...... May the Lord, ease your many friends and family pain by your leaving...

And thanks for the memories................
