I was heartbroken and cried when I heard of Ali's death. :cry: I truly admired him. This should have been all over the news, far more than the death of Prince. :(

I remember watching him as a young teen, training at his camp in Miami back in the 60s. He was amazing. He was all over the news back then, making history, not only in sports, but shaking up the political landscape for Black people as well; fighting against racial injustice in a profound way. I loved it when news reporters and even boxing opponents would refuse to refer to him as Muhammad Ali and call him Cassius Clay instead. "What is my name?" was his famous response. :skillet: lol

In my community, Ali was every Black man's hero, even to those who were afraid when he would speak up and out to white people who blatantly despised him. No such thing as "political correctness" back then. Communication was raw and in your face and he helped Black people find the power in their voices.

May he rest in peace and always be remembered for the great things he did in and outside of the boxing ring! :heart:

James, doesn’t the WHITE takeover of the burial and prominent Eulogy of our icons like Nelson Mandela and Mohammed Ali very very spectacularly highlight what a totally inadequately secured shambles we’re STILL existing in, in the 21st century?

Isn’t ANYONE who genuinely believes they are not programmed
graphically illustrating that their programming is COMPLETE?
