  • RIP Mohammed Ali

    A true legend has left us.

    Not my words, but well written

    What Muhammad Ali did—in a culture that worships sports and violence as well as a culture that idolizes black athletes while criminalizing black skin—was redefine what it meant to be tough and collectivize the very idea of courage. Through the Champ’s words on the streets and deeds in the ring, bravery was not only standing up to Sonny Liston. It was speaking truth to power, no matter the cost. He was a boxer whose very presence taught a simple and dangerous lesson fifty years ago: “real men” fight for peace and “real women” raise their voices and join the fray. Or as Bryant Gumbel said years ago, “Muhammad Ali refused to be afraid. And being that way, he gave other people courage.” - Dave Zirin #muhammadali #thegreatest #dpfb http://ift.tt/1sURGnR

              Chuck Norris is 1/8th Cherokee. This has nothing to do with ancestry, the man ate a fucking Indian.

                    I don't like watching people beat each other up, but he was pretty cool.

                        I saw one of his last fights, against Holmes i think when i was in primary school , grade 5 or 6 the teacher wheeled a tv into the class room so we could watch the fight,
                        you don't get that sort of quality teaching these days

                        RIP

                          Muhammad Ali claimed to be "So mean I make medicine sick". But he went on to be chosen to be a United Nations Messenger of Peace because of his work in developing nations and received the Presidential Medal of Freedom. He also opened the Muhammad Ali Center in his hometown of Louisville, Kentucky. "I am an ordinary man who worked hard to develop the talent I was given, many fans wanted to build a museum to acknowledge my achievements. I wanted more than a building to house my memorabilia. I wanted a place that would inspire people to be the best that they could be at whatever they chose to do, and to encourage them to be respectful of one another."

                            Given that the man had so much trouble in America over calling him Clay(not to mention the beating that Terrell suffered after refusing to call him Ali) after he changed his name this is pretty piss poor form.
