Muhammad Ali showed me what greatness was beyond boxing beyond sports. He sacrificed everything when he had everything to lose. He used his voice and stature for something that was greater than him!! For that he is the greatest, for that he will forever be “the champ”!!!
My conscience won’t let me go shoot my brother, or some darker people, or some poor hungry people in the mud for big powerful America. And shoot them for what? They never called me nigger, they never lynched me, they didn’t put no dogs on me, they didn’t rob me of my nationality, rape and kill my mother and father. … Shoot them for what? How can I shoot them poor people? Just take me to jail.
