Rest in peace. I don't agree with Islam but he was a strong ferocious black man. Now today, the black man's idea of ferricious is making wack rap songs about calling women hoes, dressing like twinks, and selling drugs because they don't have the mental capacity and strength of heart to defeat poverty and overcome the right way, like our ancestors did, so they end up in and out of jail. Muhammad was fire personafied and every black man should rightly take their touch and prove the world, the naysayers, the racists, wrong like Muhammed did.

I try not to get on the black man too much, because they have many obstacles in their path, that we as black women forget about sometimes....such as employers Not hiring black men, or hiring them for VERY LOW paying jobs, or making it hard for them to get assistance like Food Stamps, making it hard for them to freely walk down the street without feeling like the world is watching their every step, testing their intelligence and subliminally throwing Emasculating shots their way...


Now, with all that being said, the reason I will get on a Black Man is because, when you try to show some of them the REAL TRUTH about why the black man in america has it soo hard, and try to show them how to conquer, and try to show them that Christ suffered because HE IS A BLACK MAN AS WELL, and ALL the Prophets were Black Men, and that the Bible is a Black Man's Book, which the white cave demons took and LIED ON IT


.....you try to tell the black man these TRUTHS, and they end up doing a 360-degree turn, and start to DEFEND THEIR OPPRESSORS who are making their life a miserable hell.

The Lord says, His people (Chosen People) are DESTROYED for Lack of Knowledge

Damn shame he suffered for so long.

They can't! He's suffered from Parkinson's Disease for too long for this to be some kind of conspiracy theory! Death's like Prince or Peaches Gedolf are deaths that seem more like conspiracies. Not this man!

Blessings in the next life, Ali! :))))

This man was such a giant. I WISH these celebs of today had this same mentality as mentioned in the video Solange posted. When GOD puts you on a pedestal, it is your JOB to give back to them. Not live in a lap of luxury and laugh at the peons. Hear that you Hollyweirdos???!!!

You won't see the likes of him again that's for sure.

I think someone like a Kendrick Lamar has the same mentality. He always mentions that he does it for the kids in Compton where he grew up.

KENDRICK is as fake as a $2 bill.

^ We'll see.

$2 dollar bills are not real?

1:53pm No disrespect but i highly doubt Kendrick Lamar would be prepared to risk his career, freedom and well-being for a cause. If so ive not seen any evidence so far.

Muhammad Ali stood by his principles and was castigated by every section of the dominant society for it - when most men would have broke and gave in.
His level of intelligence and unwillingness to kowtow rocked the white supremacists.
Not only that he triumphed in the ring quite a few times when the odds were highly stacked against him and to lose three of your best years festering away in prison cell for no justifiable reason he still came back and won world titles.
He was a very multifaceted man whereas Kendick Lamar's just a rapper.

Did you see Kendrick's grammy performance this year? He was dressed like a convict. It was so anti-mainstream. We live in different times Muhammad's struggles were of course greater than you or I's but I don't think what Kendrick did with his last album should be discounted.

Anonymous said...

^ To continue what he did specifically was make "black pride" relevant since To Pimp A Butterfly was nominated for album of the year against American's white sweetheart Taylor Swift. If he had one it would've been historical.

@4:35pm Thank you for your post. I believe the same thing. There is no way in this day and age that an athlete in these current times will risk what Mr. Ali did for their beliefs and convictions because they are only concerned about chasing money, fame and jump offs.

Not only that, but he understood how people loved him and how he was always accessible to his fans. I know times are different now, but he made sure his handlers understood as well, which is why he is truly THE GREATEST!

A true generalization.

Generalization? Yes, but true nonetheless. It is highly unlikely that any individual attempting to attain mainstream levels of success would suddenly turn on the very machine that put them there in the first place. We know what (if not who) controls the entertainment industry; genuine revolutionaries will not be seen or heard by the few dozen record labels or the numerous television channels own by SIX corporations. What Kendrick does is some watered-down, pseudo militant so-called consciousness sprinkled over neo-liberal socialism (which is what mainstream entertainment is current spreading like a malignant cancer). Ya favorite mainstream rapper and entertainer will NEVER speak on the true ills of society unless, as @4:35 suggests, he/she is willing to risk a lucrative career, freedom and well-being or life to stand against said ills.

I don't have a fav current rapper and unless you KNOW all the athletes and entertainers in the world then you don't know who the hell is gonna do what. You can't predict the future so why try? The entertainment industry is a DYING industry like every other one tbh. Anything can and will happen in those conditions especially in this age of aquarius that we live in.

Thank you for using a good picture of him. Not sure why some other sites choose to depict him frail and in old age.

RIP Champ

Yes, many if not most celebs today are weak and lack moral strength and conviction. Which is why no one should idolize them.

The less he talked the more they loved him.

@9:53 AM Ali(and every black person in his generation and prior) had to overcome obstacles way greater than what these 'privileged' black men are facing today. If more young black men went to college (or Trade schools) they won't have to settle for low paying jobs. Black men and black women face the same job discrimination.
