Sports Central reports that Muhammad Ali's only biological son has said his father would have been against the Black Lives Matter movement. Muhammad Ali Jr. called the movement "racist" and said his famous father would have hated it and the "demons" who protested.
Ali is known as "the greatest of all time" and has been a longtime activist who has campaigned against racism, but Black Lives Matter is different. The namesake of the boxer said that his father fell ill due to the violence and looting that had ravaged things.
He continued: “It’s a racial statement. “It’s pitting black people against everyone else. It starts racial things to happen; I hate that. “My father would have said, ‘They ain’t anything but devils.’ My father said, ‘all lives matter.’ I don’t think he’d agree.
Speaking of the BLM movement, Ali Jr. also a Muslim like his father, said: “I think it’s racist. “It’s not just black lives matter, white lives matter, Chinese lives matter, all lives matter, everybody’s life matters. God loves everyone he never singled anyone out. Killing is wrong no matter who it is,” Ali said during an hour-long interview with The Post.
Quizzed on police brutality, Ali defended law enforcement in general as he said: “Police don’t wake up and think, ‘I’m going to kill a n—-r today or kill a white man. “They’re just trying to make it back home to their family in one piece.
However, speaking of Floyd’s killing at the knee of a white Minneapolis police officer, Ali said: “The officer was wrong with killing that person, but people don’t realize there was more footage than what they showed. The guy resisted arrest, the officer was doing his job, but he used the wrong tactic.
Ali also accuses Antifa of having hijacked the Black Lives Matter movement and given it a violent taste. Like President Trump, he believes Antifa should be described as a terrorist organization.
Muhammad Ali Jr. said: “Black Lives Matter is not a peaceful protest. “Antifa never wanted it peaceful. I would take them all out. “They’re no different from Muslim terrorists. They should all get what they deserve. They’re f–king up businesses, beating up innocent people in the neighborhood, smashing up police stations and shops. They’re terrorists – they’re terrorizing the community. I agree with the peaceful protests, but the Antifa, they need to kill everyone in that thing.”
The younger Ali also said he believes a lot of this divisive behavior is being pushed by Democrat politicians with their own agenda. This will likely anger the Liberals.
Ali said: “Democrats are the ones who are racist and not for everybody. “These (Democrat politicians) saying Black Lives Matter, who the hell are you to say that? You’re not even black.
