As we all know, boxing legend, Muhammad Ali has died. He was 74. And though, I am not a fan of boxing, nor any contact sport for that matter, I hold Muhammad Ali in high esteem for the fact that he refused to let himself get drafted to fight no enemy of his. At least he stood up for his principles against a country that has never held a valid and undisputable claim on championing the rights of her Negro citizens. So, why would we fight for this country? We should not and Muhammad Ali made no bones about the fact that he would not go to Vietnam and fight against people he had no quarrel with.
Another fact, Muhammad Ali was all about staying true to his Negro heritage. He was not into intermingling and erasing our culture. He said it best again when he said,
“We are different. We are not the same. Blue birds fly with blue birds. Red birds fly with red birds, pigeons want to be with pigeons, the eagles like to hang out in the mountains, while the buzzards like to fly around in the desert. They each want to be with their own.” And when told that this should not apply to people because we have more intelligence than birds, Muhammad Ali replied, “they have the intelligence to want to stay together and we should have more intelligence than them. They’re all birds but they’ve got different cultures. I’d rather be with my own and have a beautiful daughter, a beautiful wife that looks like me and we’re all happy and I don’t have to worry about any trouble resulting from an interracial marriage. Every intelligent person should want their child to look like them. I’m sad because I want to blot out my race and lose my beautiful identity? No! Chinese love Chinese. Pakistanis love their culture. Jewish people love their culture. A lot of Catholics want to marry another Catholic. They want the religion to stay the same. Who would want to spot up yourself and kill your race? You’re a hater of your people if you don’t want to stay true to who you are. You’re ashamed of what ‘god’ made you? ‘God’ didn’t make no mistake. No woman can talk to me, cook for me and please me like a Black American woman, no woman! And the last is a ‘white’ woman that can identify with my feelings and with the way I talk. And you can’t take no Chinese man and give him a Puerto Rican woman and holler about we in love, emotionally and physically when really they’re not happy because she’s going to hear some Puerto Rican music, he’s going to hear some Chinese music and they’re going to be clashing all the time. It’s just nature. You can do what you want, but it’s nature to want to be with your own. I want to be with my own.”-Muhammad Ali excerpt from an interview with the BBC November 1971.
I could not agree more with you Muhammad Ali as no one but my own would get me. And I certainly cannot get with those who have oppressed people who look like me every single chance they get and I am to expect to receive love from them? Get real! Those of you who go in for interracial marriage are making the mistake of your lives. You are not adding to your culture. You are destroying it and that is why this interracial mess is touted at every opportunity. If they cannot wipe us out of existence one way, they’ll damn sure as hell try another. And you are helping them along with this. You are a traitor to your people and no sista or brotha of mine, believe that! I denounce that stupid mess and you!
Muhammad Ali did not say things to make people feel good and to be politically correct. He spoke from his own perspective and from his own life experiences. When after having won the Gold at the Olympics, he came back to AmeriKKKa, thought that he would be welcomed in restaurants that he had previously been denied entrance, only to find out that that gold that he won ‘for’ AmeriKKKa, meant nothing because even gold could not compete against the color of his skin. He put his suit on and went to a restaurant, sat down and the waitress came over and said, “We don’t serve Negroes in here!” Ali responded, “I don’t eat them either. Bring me some coffee and a hotdog!” They put him out. And people have the nerve to take exception to his comments about integration and interracial marriage? You have got to be kidding.
Unfortunately for me, I did not know any of this until I read up on Muhammad Ali after reading about his death. I watched videos of interviews given by him and he mirrors my thoughts exactly on so many issues, it is unreal. He even made the point of why is everything connected with ‘good’,’white’. Everything, he said, that is associated with purity is white; “why is the ‘Lord’s’ supper ALL white men? Angels are ‘white’ the Pope’ , Santa Claus, GEEZUS, Snow White, Mary had a little lamb and its feet were ‘white as snow'” and so forth and so on. He said that he asked his mama would he get to go to heaven and his mama said yes and he responded, “but where are all the Black angels? If the ‘white’ folks are up in heaven, then the Black angels are in the kitchen preparing the ‘milk and honey'” He said, “Tarzan is the king of the jungle in Africa and he was always ‘white’ and yet Tarzan was talking to the animals and the Black people had been there for centuries and couldn’t talk with the animals. Also everything was white, White Rain shampoo, White Cloud toilet paper, an ‘angel’ food cake is white but the ‘devil’s food cake was the ‘chocolate’ cake and the president lives in the ‘White House’ but everything that was bad was associated with Black; the little ugly duckling was a ‘black’ duckling, and the ‘Black’ cat was the bad luck and if I threatened you, I’m going to ‘Blackmale’ you, and he said, “mama, why don’t they call it ‘whitemale’, they lie too?”
And we have the audacity to take up what Caucasians put down and run with it. How the hell can you expect shits that view you as evil to have anything ‘good’ attached to their ass? They cannot and they do not! You worship the same false idols as they do. Your ‘god’ is also blond-haired and blue-eyed. Their ‘god’ is just as fictitious as the saying, “A ‘white’ man is a ‘good’ man.”You will live beside the Caucasians in mansions in the sky when they don’t even want you to live beside them on this god forsaken planet?! What the hell is wrong with you? You have your children paying homage to another fat white fictitious bastard in a red suit and he is the one who is bringing YOUR children, their toys? Are you serious? As hard as you work and for less pay than they receive?! And then I have the nerve to wonder why the Negro race in AmeriKKKa is in such trouble. With the shit that you take up and run with, it is no wonder! People like Muhammad Ali tried to school you fools on exactly how it is and still you wouldn’t listen and to this very day, you don’t listen. But will wonder instead, why you’re fucked up! Keep wondering because your willful ignorance will lead to your demise which is what the Caucasian is after any way, but you’re hell bent on helping his cause along, aren’t you? Indeed, you dumbasses are! Our demise benefits the Caucasian in every way because our blood is stronger than his. You can’t figure out that this is why he wants it weakened? And the reasons for all the experimentation on you that goes even further back than the Tuskegee Syphilis Experiment. You can’t figure out why the Caucasian invented AIDS? You have no clue, do you? Again, it is because OUR blood is stronger than his. And he cannot have that! Why do you think Bill Gates’ ass is funding experiments in Africa? It ain’t for the good of the Africans and that is for damn sure. Why do you think the Red Cross is so prominent in Africa? They are not there to help! Why do you think AmeriKKKa has sent the U.S. military to Africa? Again, it ain’t to help, that’s for damn sure! Yeah! Keep on sitting back and taking this shit up the ass and you will find your ass handed to you!
Now, some of you may think that what Muhammad Ali said was quite funny, but it is SO not because what Muhammad Ali said is quite true and it still rings true today. Don’t think so? Just take a look around. Negro people are still perceived as the ‘bad element’ when in reality we ALL know that the very last thing the Caucasian is synonymous with is ‘good’. Ain’t a damn thing ‘good’ about you and that is a fact and Muhammad Ali knew this and made no bones about his knowledge of that fact.
Muhammad Ali, I wish you “bon voyage”! Be at rest and at peace for you have earned it and thank you for speaking these truths and likewise, they are just as relevant today as they were decades ago when you spoke them! More’s the goddamn pity!
