I'm white. My I only call very few people, counted on one hand, friend. Of those, by best friend is a black man. There is no one whom I would more willingly trust with my life.

I would say yes.
Can a black man be a white mans hero?
I would say yes.
If for nothing more than his ability in the ring. An ability that not only
made him the greatest but, the absolute best boxer I've ever seen in
the heavy weight division? Ali is that man. So I just want the white, black,
brown, red, whatever color a man might be. I want you all to know, that
the difference mankind shares in skin tone is so easily disappeared.
Do I see a black man, when I look at Muhammed Ali? No, I see Muhammed Ali.
Do I see a white man, when I look at Evel Knievel? No, I see Evel Knievel.
But the main point of this thread is that people like Muhammed Ali prove
that racism is easily forsaken. So when Ali passes, I will try to see him in
every black man I meet. And i'd like everyone to know how hard it's going
to be, at least for me, to see him pass.
It just won't be easy at all.

No I got it, I was responding to another poster about the context of the time in Ali's era,of how and why he may have made unflattering generalizations about white folks.
only idiots would care about race.
