Well let me just say this Parkinsons is a disease which affects the motor functions of the body. It DOES NOT effect the way someone thinks. Motor functions are everything to do with the neuroMUSCULAR system, ie speech, hands feet etc. So as the article and many ignorant people who have commented stated that parkinsons affects his judgement and character, that is completely and utterly false.

Secondly, Nation of islam did not preach the correct religion back then. They stated Elijah Muhammed is a phophet. Which is FALSE and does not agree with the true islam. Malcolm X figured it out and thats why he was killed, NOT because of Ali. About the racist and sexist remarks, well thats the halo effect, the white coat effect, you see a doctor and you become 100% in his/her ability to heal you because of that white coat they are wearing. Well the people Ali followed were the wrong people, they made him believe they preached the write word, which infact was false. He was also their tool for the world so their ideas were expressed through him.

Ali in his later life LEFT the nation and went on a holy pilgrimage where he realised that there was a true islam which teaches nothing but submittance to God and peace... As far as the mans personal sex life is concerned well, I dont think anyone should care. Its the mans personal life. . Judge the man once you have fully investigated who he is what he has done his own accounts accounts of people who loved and hated him, then you can truely judge someone. Draft dodging, well would you give a priest a gun and tell him to shoot someone he didnt know? YOu think he would do it? Well of course not any form of killing in christianity is prohibited its a major sin. Well thats exactly the reason Ali said no.
