‘Privlidge’. When you want to deny a mans OWN chosen name because you dont agree with it, for whatever reason. But the same types couldnt dare to say such things beyond a keyboard, would end up looking like Foreman in the 8th

Used to stay up early hours of the morning to listen to his fights on the radio
Thanks
Read half of it last night, a great read
4 years since he died, what a great human being he was.



I like this interview he did in Ireland in 1972, shows his various sides nicely I think (and just a little different to his Parkinson, American TV appearances, etc)... But you could spend 2 months looking at all the great stuff on him in ytube, such a character.

It's not common knowledge but he had partial English and Irish ancestry

His great grandfather was a big red headed guy called Abe Grady from a town called Ennis in County Clare, Ireland, who left for America in the 1860s and married a black lady.

They only discovered this in the 2000's and he visited Ennis in 2009 and was made a Freeman of the town.

A nice gesture I would like to recommend to whoever downloads this book is to donate what you would spend on this book (or even a portion of that) to a charity standing against racism.

You may have a charity in mind or that you are already supporting, if not, here is an article from The Independent that shares information on 10 anti-racism charities in the UK you can donate to if you wish:

independent.co.uk/lif…tml

CREDIT: I saw this recommended in a tweet by Reni Eddo-Lodge on her own book (author of Why I'm No Longer Talking To White People About Race). She encouraged everyone to borrow the book from a friend or a library and donate the money to a charity standing against racism as she doesn't feel comfortable profiteering from a these movements.

Such a cheap throw away thing eh?
What you're doing is insisting he's known by what he saw as a slave name.
You should really be ashamed, but no doubt you're not.


Thanks for the link OP. Love the man and just watched the 2 parter on Sky and loved it/hated it because it shows the slide into Parkinsons.
A great but flawed man, and one of my very few heroes.

Aha. I guess having Brown in my name wasn't clear enough. I should change it to Black, so it's much clearer

Cassius wasnt a slave name, it was a name given to him by his parents. Only Clay is passed down by previous slave owner.
Could have easily changed his name as Cassius Ali, but he wouldn't of been accepted into the Nation Of Islam with that name.

Actually they most likely would've still accepted him. They already had members with Western first names like Malcolm X or, their leader himself, Elijah Muhammad.

Man I'm so glad Ali and Malcolm left that cult and joined mainstream Islam. Though it's so sad that the latter had to die for speaking out against the NOI...
