Wow.  He didn't call himself "The Greatest" for nothing.  

Listening to these clips, it occurs to me that Muhammad Ali may have been the most influential person of his day on race, race relations, and our uplift in this country and the world.  An unabashedly pro-black, powerful black man, in the 1960s and '70s, somehow was totally accepted by the white mainstream.  It seems I have a new topic to research and read up on.  Thanks for posting these, Cholly.
Ha Ha Ha! Love the first video! So prophetic! The second video, well I have to agree I don't know who has yet said that Elijah Muhammed was wrong and was white and could prove it. Not that I agree 100% with the NOI view as well, but that is definitely an interesting point.
