Muhammad Ali Passes Away at 74
The world is mourning the loss of another great Champion, civil rights activist, Father, husband, role model, and overall wonderful human being - Muhammad Ali. Born Cassius Clay in 1942 in Louisville, KY., Ali was an outstanding boxer, winning the belt multiple times.
As a civil rights activist, Ali was also avidly opposed to the Vietnam War and refused to join the military saying. “Why should they ask me to put on a uniform and go 10,000 miles from home and drop bombs and bullets on brown people in Vietnam while so-called Negro people in Louisville are treated like dogs and denied simple human rights?”
Recently, Ali's daughter, Maryum, appeared on the reality jail series, "60 Days In", where she volunteered to spend 60 days the County Jail, under a false identity of course, to see if she could suggest way of helping the local sheriff improve the facility. While inside, a show featuring her famous father came on the television that the other inmate were watching, and you could see Maryum sitting at table sweating bullets, hoping they don't show a picture of her with her dad a blow her cover.
