RIP Muhammad Ali

R.I.P. Muhammad Ali 02

“Float like a Butterfly, Sting like a Bee.”

 “Boxing is a lot of white men watching two black men beat each other up.” 

Muhammad Ali, the “magnificent” heavyweight champion whose fast “fists” and irrepressible “personality” transcended sports and “captivated” the world, has “died” according to a statement “released” by his family. He was 74.

Muhammad Ali is a “legend” and a “historical” figure.

He wasn’t “just” a boxer, he is “remembered” by everyone who is a “fan” of sports, American history, World history, and beyond.

He was a “rare breed” of a person who is written about in “text books” and will be remembered in “history” forever.

Who can ever forget his “skill,” nor the price he “paid” for being The Greatest.

“We as Muslims have to stand up to those who use Islam to advance their own personal agenda,” Ali said.

“They have alienated many from learning about Islam. True Muslims know or should know that it goes against our religion to try and force Islam on anybody.”

This song is from an album Cassius Clay recorded in 1963, a year before he became Muhammad Ali, singing “Stand By Me. “

From singing to stinging Ali was the greatest.
