1. And he joined with Martin Luther King in his opposition to the Vietnam War.

4. Why would you say that?

If you don't agree with Mr. Ali's politics, why don't you leave?

5. But you won't miss Ali's progressive anti-war politics. Is that what you mean?

 


What a terrible time for you to attack Ali's anti-war views.

6. Ali lost his liberty, was imprisoned, and lost his occupation because he was anti-war.

How am I supposed to leave his politics at the door? This is a contemptible comment.

7. I agree with you.

Words like "Giant" and "legend" get tossed around easily, but that guy.
