He was a great boxer, but not a good person at all

Reader comment on item: Muhammad Ali's "Beautiful Soul"

Submitted by Johnny Carpati (United States), Dec 10, 2005 at 18:53

Thank you Dr. Pipes, for this insight debunking the myth that this man did anything good outside of boxing. You'd think after what happened to Malcolm X that black America would get the point that these are not nice people. That how it happens in Islam, you start preaching something remotely peaceful or decent and you get eliminated by your own people. It's like oil and water. One thing though, was the Don King thing a joke? Yes he's a shady character, but his "only in America" attitude puts him above a great many African-American celebrities in my book.
