    Actually, yes you did. You said his son is wrong which at the very least implies that you know what Ali would have thought better than his son does.

    No. What do "they" say?

    OTOH, I do know what Joe Biden said and was rightfully mocked and scorned for doing so.

    WARNING - veiled profanity, but direct quotes....

    On the fourth anniversary of his death, Muhammad Ali’s only biological son says that his father would be against Black Lives Matter, calling the movement “racist” and the protesters “devils.”

    The legendary boxer and activist stood up against racism throughout his life, but Muhammad Ali Jr. says his dad would have been sickened by how the protests have turned to violence and looting after the death of George Floyd.

    “Don’t bust up s–t, don’t trash the place,” he told The Post. “You can peacefully protest.

    ‘‘My father would have said, ‘They ain’t nothing but devils.’ My father said, ‘All lives matter.’ I don’t think he’d agree.”

    Of the BLM movement, Ali Jr., a Muslim like his father, said: “I think it’s racist.”

    “It’s not just black lives matter, white lives matter, Chinese lives matter, all lives matter, everybody’s life matters. God loves everyone — he never singled anyone out. Killing is wrong no matter who it is,” Ali said during an hour-long interview with The Post.

    On police brutality, Ali defended law enforcement in general.

    “Police don’t wake up and think, ‘I’m going to kill a n—-r today or kill a white man,'” he said. “They’re just trying to make it back home to their family in one piece.
    He sounds like he was the greatest in more ways than boxing.

    He had a great sense of humor.

    One of the many stories I can tell about Ali to give you an idea what a marvelously twisted sense of humor he had.

    My brother has been involved in the sports memorabilia trade for many years. In fact, during shows and conventions here in Atlanta he would be the guy sitting next to the big name draw keeping the line flowing smoothly while the person signed autographs.

    Awhile back Muhammad Ali was going to be the big draw and Ali was the idol of my brother's boss (and later partner) at his regular job so my brother asked Bob if he wanted to sit in for him at the show. That is sit next to Ali for a couple hours and talk while he signed autographs.

    For Bob it was truly a dream come true. He was ecstatic and obviously jumped at the chance.

    Everything went well until about three quarters of the way through the show Ali suddenly stops signing an autograph and turns to Bob glaring at him. "What did you just say?," he growled softly at Bob all the while angrily glaring at him.

    Bob was taken aback. He hadn't said anything and said so.

    "No. I heard you," Ali snarled getting louder.

    Bob continued protesting his innocence completely confused and not wanting one of the greatest boxers who ever lived, a man who made a living pummeling other top notched boxers, and someone he greatly admired, angry at him.

    Ali continued getting even louder "You called me a [n-word]. I heard you!"

    At this point Bob was stuttering, stammering and nearly reduced to tears both scared and upset.

    Ali repeated the accusation even louder.

    Then a big smile spread across his face and he told Bob, "It's okay, I was just messing with ya" and started chuckling.

    At the end of the show Ali gave Bob a pair of the boxing gloves he had worn during the Olympics that he signed for him as a gift.

    My brother inherited the gloves when Bob passed away about a decade later.

    But that was how Ali was.

    Ali loved magic.

    I was his driver for one of these shows after which he asked me if I knew of any magic shops. There is one about 15 miles north of Atlanta on the square in Marietta. I called the store and the owner said he was closing in less than half an hour.

    I told him that Muhammad Ali wanted to drop by and Ali even spoke to him but the guy was extremely skeptical thinking it was a prank. So we rushed to the store and got there about 15 minutes or so after closing. Fortunately the owner was just locking the door. Seeing Ali and his wife he re-opened.

    Ali spent several minutes buying stuff and both him and the owner did a few tricks.

    As we were leaving Ali asked if there was a place he could get some prints made. I took him to a Kinko's a few miles away.

    There were two 'exotic dancers' making copies of their resumes or something like that and they just were ecstatic when they saw Ali enter. They asked if they could get some pictures with him to which he happily obliged.

    As he was standing between them with a big grin (they were pretty girls), between shots he leaned back and looked at me and said "It's good to be the king."

    After a couple more shots his wife told him that was enough to which he responded "yes dear" and said his good byes to the girls.

    While his wife was not what anyone would say was a beauty it was more than evident that he was deeply in love and devoted to her.

    I'm always still in trouble again

    "I don't think he'd agree" Ali's son said of his father. So why should we care what Ali's son thinks. He apparently doesn't even know what black lives matter means. He apparently thinks it means that "only black lives matter." Ali was a wonderful human being in my opinion, his son sounds like a clueless dope.

    Probably Ali was not, and his son is not, really black enough for the libtards.
