Muhammad Ali Jr. is quoted as saying that his dad would not agree with the Black Lives Matter movement, would consider the protesters of the George Floyd murder to be devils, and that his father would have supported Donald Trump.
I’ve spent many hours talking and listening to Muhammad Ali as a fan, as an employee, and a friend and he never went along with popular opinion to gain popularity or tried to follow the status quo to elevate his position in life.
The last thing the Champ would have wanted is for anyone, including Ali Jr., to put words in his mouth, because he had enough of them of his own.
Rather than taking easy jabs at Ali Jr., I’d rather consider the fact that the only way the younger Ali could get any media attention these days was to say something controversial about his father.
