Like the dude was cosigning Nixon back in the day. Nixon and Nelson Rockefeller. Ali, hell any militant black wasn’t fucking with him, but then turned around and said this about the Republican convention:
That convention was one of the most unforgettable and frightening experiences of my life. The hatred I saw was unique to me because it was hatred directed against a white man. It embodied a revulsion for all he stood for, including his enlightened attitude towards black people.
A new breed of Republicans had taken over the GOP. As I watched this steamroller operation in San Francisco, I had a better understanding of how it must have felt to be a Jew in Hitler’s Germany.
But i’m sure they will just have the dude getting hit with baseballs, shrugging that shit off like a human catcher’s mitt and going home and breaking a lamp, when in actuality dude was a complicated and unique guy, especially for back then.
i dont care what anyone says, will smith was horrible as Ali..
couldnt even watch that shit after awhile
he aint nothin like Clay… no way no how
I feel like they should have let Spike Lee do that shit. People didn’t fuck with Ali back then, and dude gave no fucks… on some Jack Johnson shit, but militant. I feel like dude fucked up the zeitgeist of the whole period. Plus dude didn’t even touch on how mythologized Ali is in the black community. Kizzas made him into a quiet weirdo that stares off vacantly into the distance every 5 minutes.
