“My conscience won’t let me go shoot my brother or some darker people or some poor, hungry people in the mud for big, powerful America.
And shoot them for what? They never called me nigger, they never lynched me, they didn’t put no dogs on me, they didn’t rob me of my nationality, rape and kill my mother and father.
Shoot them for what? How can I shoot them poor people? Poor little black people and babies and children and women. How can I shoot them poor people? Just take me to jail.”

Muhammad Ali was right, in my opinion. One of the most famous athletes in America lived the courage of his convictions. Good for him.
