It’s just so wrong, so sickening that Bill Clinton eulogized Mohammad Ali.They report Ali planned his own memorial service. His doctor reports he suffered no brain impediments from Parkinson’s Disease. But he must have been out of touch with political realities from the Clinton era: the war on Black youth that incarcerated thousands of Black kids for drug use (many for life without parole) & minor infractions; the evisceration of welfare that forces poor women, children, disabled, elderly to scrounge for food from food banks & dumpsters.
We honor Ali as the people of Louisville did today–as one of ours. Whether he knew it or not, he had nothing in common with Clinton.
