I’m saddened by the news boxing great, Muhammad Ali died June 3rd. The man I admired and viewed as a Black activist against the blatant racism that exist in America during his youth and mine. The white man wanted to break him wanted him to conform to their idea of what a Black man should be. But those who lived during those times found in him a voice and hero. I know I felt that way. He was going to be his own man with his own religion and it felt great to see what a REAL man looked like and sounded like. Ali fought the white man in the courts and won. And, we Blacks cheered! They hated him because he was loud, boastful and he belong to, what they considered, a renegade religious group known as the Nation of Islam. Rest In Peace!
