Many Americans were TOO DUMB to understand how ALI wisely used the humor of an exaggerated personality to get our attention & try to change our society for the better! He irritated many Whites with his over the top personality, but he gave pride to Black Americans & moved our society ahead! He risked years in prison standing against our mistaken war in Vietnam! He was a man with dyslexia that could barely read yet he changed the country! As a White man of his age group, Ali has my respect for using his life to change America in a positive way! I remember how hard that was to do in that time period of racial prejudice & the Vietnam war!
