Many often think of Muhammad Ali as the champ, a boxing legend that dazzled the world with his amazing boxing abilities.
But a shocking new file released by the FBI has revealed that Ali was extremely racist.
According to the 200 page file, Ali often referred to white people as “white devils” and “crackers.”
Conservative Tribune reports:
Ali told an audience at a mosque that “black women have the best sons and daughters in the world,” that “the so-called negro is the original man and is superior to the white devil” and that he would rather be with his own people than “blue-eyed devil white people.”
Wow. It doesn’t get more racist than that. But there’s more:
The files also reported that the boxer said the American flag “represented death and destruction” while the “Muslim flag” represents “life and prosperity, justice for all black men.” According to Ali, programs to achieve integration were “useless” and the 1964 Civil Rights Act was a “swindle.”
Ali also made it clear that he would rather go to jail than serve in the U.S. Army.
It’s sad when our idols turn out to be monsters, but what did we expect from a man that so randomly converted to Islam? There was no way he loved the United States if he was willing to take up such a violent religion.
