I don’t know anything about Muhammad Ali’s boxing career. Whom he fought, which fights made him, and which ones he lost. I know only that outside of the ring, he fought all the wrong battles. Despite his non-love for the white man, here he is pictured with the very white, blue-eyed Muslim-fundamentalist “no-coexistence” Bosnian wartime president Alija Izetbegovic, who was kicking off the jihad we face today while we successfully passed him off as a tolerant, multi-cultural democrat who deserved our backing against the other sides. (And branded him and his bellicose hordes the “brown” underdog side facing “genocide” by the ‘blue-eyed’ Serbs.) So, in the end, Ali bought into the Western white man’s deceptive narratives after all.
The only other factoids I’m aware of are that Ali wasn’t a faithful husband, to say the least, and that he was known to publicly go on about “Zionists.” Oh, and also there’s what I learned from sitting in on a 1996 interview in Miami with a former prostitute who used to work for Cassius Clay. Because before he was a professional boxer, Muhammad Ali was a pimp. R.I.P.
