The video at the bottom of this post is from an earlier time before Marxist-inspired “political-correctness” began suppressing freedom of speech.
The White British interviewer didn’t capture the basic essence of this race-mixing dialogue with Ali, and instead assumed the role of appearing noblesse oblige who failed to “keep it real“.
I use the term “noblesse oblige” loosely and with a derisive tone … meaning the BBC host played a condescending role tainted with a hypocritical stance before a public audience.
“Noblesse oblige” is a French noun sometimes used to imply that people with wealth, power, or prestige have certain responsibilities attached to their influence. The false premise of “white guilt” is added to the mix, and extended towards “victim” minority races living in White societies. (In reality, NON-whites account for 92% of the world’s 7,500,000,000 (BILLIONS) people — so the remaining 8 percent White-minority race have no collective cause to harbor such foolish notions as “white guilt“.)
During one segment of the interview, Ali may have suppressed the urge of calling out the BBC host as a sycophantic hypocrite … but, he only resorts to “you’re on the show, you gotta say that”. Pathetically, the BBC host becomes immediately defensive — and unconvincingly — blurts out “that’s not true” while casting a furtive glance towards his live audience in a desperate move for moral support.
What if Ali had ensnared the BBC interviewer with this question: … “would you marry a black woman and subsequently spawn a few mulattoes that didn’t quite share your skin tone“? The White hypocrite would have probably answered “yes” knowing full-well that he was lying … and with a straight face. White liberal hypocrites will always command that you “do as I say, not as I do“.
Imagine a White man having spoken as honestly as Muhammad Ali did in 1971 — or especially today! He would be repeatedly maligned with slurs of “racist” “racist”.

After viewing the 3 minute video below, check out these examples of misplaced altruism … or is that competitive altruism tinged with a healthy dose of narcissism — rather than any genuine concern for the “poor victims” they purport to “save”?? Then, again, perhaps it’s the latest Hollywood-craze designed to reinforce guilt-ridden Whites into following tinsel town’s latest fashion statement.
Update: Died in June, 2016 at the age of 74 yrs.
Born Cassius Marcellus Clay Jr. on Jan. 17, 1942, in Louisville, Kentucky, Ali learned how to box after his bicycle was stolen when he was 12 years old. When young Clay vowed to “whoop the behind” of the thief … a local police officer encouraged him to learn to box, so to channel his energy.
