Submitted by Ahmad R. Jenkins (United States), Feb 5, 2006 at 11:19

White people will never understand black civil rights, first people are saying malcolm x may have been Gay, now Muhammad Ali is... not what we grew up thinking and respecting... what next.. MLK was a pre-op transsexual?? ... Muhammad ali was a man, Human, despite some of his faults, he did do great things. He protested going to vietnam.. why should he have gone when his rights weren't given to him in this country why?

Just lay off of our Black heroes, especially on black history month.. if you feel we have the wool over our eyes fine, but give us our hero's....we deserve something since we never did get our few measly acres of land and mule
