Written by
(Auto-generated Video Transcript)
I'll read this book by the man himself oops to Muhammad Ali is all about Muhammad he's talking about why he changed his name from Cassius Clay Muhammad Ali's talk about all the races and we forget I mean there's still racism but man he lived in the time when it was for real and he said everybody has names that they're proud of but we don't have our own names is that Chinese people have names like Lou chin Russians have name like crew shift and you white people have names like O'Connor and Grady and Kennedy but Africans name have like Lumumba akroma choose have name like Weinstein and Goldberg Italians have names like benvenuto and Marciano we have names like Grady and clay and Hawking's and smith and jones and Jeff Johnson but were black and the reporter said yeah those are slave names and Ollie said I changed my name to Muhammad Ali because it's a beautiful black name name of our ancestors when I heard this Mohammed said he walked out of the Church of Christianity because they never taught us true knowledge we saw Jesus he's white with blonde hair and blue eyes we see the Lord's Supper all white people we see the angels in heaven all white people look at Miss Universe a white woman even Tarzan the king of the jungle in Africa he was white you see a white man swinging around Africa with a diaper on he beats up all Africans and breaks the lion's job Africans being in Africa for centuries but can't yet talk to animals but Tarzan all of a sudden some go raised him up and you can talk to animals so i'm showing you how the black man in America has been whitewashed in his mind we look at the good Cowboys that road white horses and the president's lives president lives in a white house so you can see the rage of a man and I'm not you know look I found not black but I'm also not white so I've experienced some racism myself and the way I look at it is you can go to extremes you can get too into races Amanda paralyze yourself and just blame other people for not succeeding but there's also a flip side and Muhammad Ali made a point you know why is why are all the depictions of people not accurate and i'm all for just pure logic you know what Jesus Christ white he was living in the Middle East or as we know it so bright and blue eyes so there's a lot of the subconscious brainwashing i just did a talk today live call on the brainwashing about money is brainwashing my all kinds of subjects and its media you notice it was paintings of the last supper last Muhammad Ali was talking about and I see it in the news and the media there's all kinds of brainwashing about money and assumptions were all talk and so you know we often all live in the prison's of our own mind and the prison's of the media that we've allowed ourselves to be you know bounded by so open up the mind read that Muhammad Ali book i lived in this elf there's a lot of racism in the South still and is getting better no doubt and some people like I said take it to two extremes and they blame all their problems on racism and it's not all races you got people that are lazy all races you have people that work hard and so for most of us the limiting factor is not external forces for most of us the limiting factor is right here ear-to-ear in between that brain will self limits o Muhammad Ali was a pioneer it's pretty cool to read and my favorite thing mama leaves we talked about you know he said you know you do sit-ups you start counting once it bonds you mean people like dude I did five hundred sit-ups Muhammad Ali didn't start counting to five hundred tools already burning so it's a great little lesson need to get sit-ups going get the six pack up and running so peace

Muhammad Ali had a lot to say on racism.

Everywhere you go you hear racist jokes. Racism is still alive.

The human brain tends towards prejudice and discrimination because it is afraid of whatever it doesn’t understand.

Muhammad Ali changed his name because he understood there are subtle forces at work – “Social Controls” – that affect all of us (no matter what race you are).

Society holds us back without our even realizing it.

I was reading my Book-Of-The-Day, “The Mammoth Book of Muhammad Ali” by David West and thought the great boxer Muhammad Ali had some interesting insight.

Check out the book on Amazon – here is a link: http://amzn.to/1OB2Fu8

**I make money (not much haha) on this book if you buy it with this link through my affiliate relationships with Amazon. I get a small commission on sales of these products. That in no way affects my opinion of this book. I would read it anyway! lmao…

  • Jesus was a Jew.. Pretty much everyone is ok with the except… Guess who? African American Christians.. They all have pictures of black Jesus. It's not ok to talk about that tho.. Only Muhammad Ali and black people can complain about racial biases.. 😂

    • What are you talking about? The greatest lie is that Jesus was white, you see it everywhere, he lived in the Middle East and your telling me that he had blue eyes and blonde hair and white skin?

  • Identity politics is so banal. People love to feel discriminated against because it gives them an excuse for their failures in life, it absolves them of any guilt attached to their failure to thrive.

  • I didn't notice that everything the system has been teaching us was all based on white humans until after watching this video. I'm not racist or anything but I'm surprised Obama got elected president and the stereotypes or the history of slavery didn't stop him from doing that.

  • There are no such things as bad nations, there are bad personalities. Russia historically is a very multinational country (190 nations) and we respect each other for ones behavior, without really looking on what nationality that one is.

  • I never saw the point of hating other people for what they believe in. You never going to get anywhere with it anyway. Black or white, christian or muslim who cares, let other people do their thing. Then the world truly would be a better place.

  • Aw mate fantastic subject. Is the book called Mohammad on racism? Everyone everyday is not only white washed, washed in some way despite what that may be. I am in uk not feeling to good and see this. Don't think anything else would have fought my attention. Thanks you. 👍

  • I am religious. I was brought up this way. However I also have the ability to view subjects such as religion from multiple angles. There is physical evidence all over the world to show that we predate the bible or any of our versions of it. Now if we predate these artefacts and there is proof then. How can a religion doubt the physical facts and dismiss something like this. Then you have Jesus and the issue of his race. If a religion has deceived its followers and has so many holes in it produced by physical, un-manipulated and scientific evidence. Used for marketing and control of masses to gain stability, then surely this is only a tool and not meant to be followed…. Misleading maybe? Remember this is coming from a white religious man, who is not stupid nor narrow minded or closed off from other information. Very good point Mohammad my friend, I'm sure white people enjoyed hearing this back in the day 😂👍

  • Tai you said you're not white but in fact you are. You're just as much white as your other half. As you know the one drop rule was invented by racists. I suspect you didn't say this because here in America people still believe in the one drop rule. Hell look at Obama he is called black but he is just as white as he is black. Sad society doesn't see this

  • Racism is actually a hard concept for most people to grasp. Sort of like electricity… you can see the results and evidence that electricity really exist, however to explain the fundamentals of electricity is very difficult for the average person. In other words, most of us have seen the evidences that racism truly does exist, however to explain the psychology and reasons behind why it still exists today- is beyond most people's ability. Indentured servitude and slavery has long since been eradicated from Western societies; however, for some reason ethnocentrism still exists in America today, and racial tensions are at an all time high. I wonder why an outdated and illogical belief system still persists in the world today…Its just beyond me!
