The Part You Won’t Recognize

What can our nation look like if we love each other the way we loved Muhammad Ali? Why did America allow itself to unequivocally love this man who embodies so much of what large factions of us now fear and despise? How did we wholeheartedly embrace a radical Muslim convert who stood unwaveringly for the rights of African-Americans and refused to fight in our wars…in the American South…the 1960s? What does our reverence at his death mean about who we are? And how can this make a positive difference in the lives of others who have radical political ideals, who are black,or Muslim, or disabled, or, or, or? We have much to remember, and much to learn. Let us consider this life and what it means to us now.
