Muhammad Ali RIP - He Was An American Hero, Not A Brash Black Man To Be Feared

Muhammad Ali RIP - He Was An American Hero, Not A Brash Black Man To Be Feared - Video

What bothers me about the passing of Muhammad Ali, is that he's described as "confident" and this coded language of fear of the strong, straight, alpha black male is going to contaminate television media. They don't get it. For me, now 53, and Muhammad Ali is the reason my media brand is called "Zennie62" - the 60s were an incredible decade of change that's not fully understood today. Muhammad Ali spoke up for himself as a black man when blacks were being lynched, jailed, shot, and segregated on a daily basis. For a young black kid, that I was, Muhammad Ali was just doing what he thought was right. He was standing up for his civil rights. What Muhammad Ali did, and has done, should never been forgotten or diminished. If you want to celebrate Ali, don't call him brash - call him what he was and is: an American Hero.
