Muhammad Ali

Three time heavyweight champion Muhammad Ali passed away from complications of Parkinson's disease on Friday. He was taken to a Phoenix area hospital on Thursday after suffering sudden severe respiratory distress. He was 74.

Only the Greatest can write his obituary. Here is how Ali wanted to be remembered, in his own words:

"I would like to be remembered as a man who won the heavyweight title three times, who was humorous, and who treated everyone right. As a man who never looked down on those who looked up to him, and who helped as many people as he could. As a man who stood up for his beliefs no matter what. As a man who tried to unite all humankind through faith and love.

And if all that's too much, then I guess I'd settle for being remembered only as a great boxer who became a leader and a champion of his people. And I wouldn't even mind if folks forgot how pretty I was."

    Best SR post EVER. Love all of the tweets. I can't say anything better than what was written above. As a Christian remembering a Muslim, I know we will end up in the same place of Glory. Amen.

  • PhenomenalWomanThatIsMe

    Beautiful man, inside and out. Rest in peace, Muhammed Ali.

  • Hugga Bunch

    I feel heat and my heart races when I see old clips of him and read his quotes. He was some kind of man, made no apologies for anything he said, and he was such an influential humanitarian.

    2016 is becoming the year our legends move up even higher than their throne on earth. RIP Mr. Muhammad Ali aka the GOAT to all of our other GOATS. #Salute

  • Hugga Bunch

    Both of them and look at Prince's smile. Incredible.

    ? REST IN POWER BROTHER ALI. You were the the definition of a strong ,intelligent black man. You stood your ground and never let THEM knock you off your Square. You legacy will live on for eternity. REST IN POWER BROTHER ALI! ??

  • Da Puppet Mistress

    RIP as I stated earlier. We lost greatness again.

    As far as this post, pic of him and Bill Cosby coulda been skipped. Many pics as there are of this beautiful man.

    And I think everyone knows how much how hated his original name.

    Shade can't stop for one day mayne. To whomever was crine for this post downstairs, be careful what you ask for here

  • Afiya

    Thank you Muhammed Ali for you champion Civil Right, this makes you GOAT.

    "Cassius Clay is a name that white people gave to my slave master. Now that I am free, that I don't belong anymore to anyone, that I'm not a slave anymore, I gave back their white name, and I chose a beautiful African one." - Muhammad Ali. Rest In Peace champ.

    "ALI BOMAYE !!!!!!!!"........."ALI BOMAYE !!!!!!".......

  • Noirluv45

    One of the most telling things about Ali and others of his day was that they were not afraid to suffer for what they believed. Athletes today aren't willing to risk their money, fame, or fortune. Standing up takes a lot of courage, and he was willing to suffer the consequences for truth. My heartfelt condolences sent to his family.

  • That’s Interesting

    This is a beautiful write up. RIP Mr. Ali. He is definitely in a better place and suffered gracefully long enough.

  • ReadingIsFundamental4Real

    Come on troops please, this is a RIP post. Don't look at what you think is negative and dog SR on this day during this moment of remembrance. I don't think this man's life story may be appreciated without acknowledging that the was born one name, died another and the story that comes with it. Similar to many leaders, he was so many great things and flawed in between like all of us. He found peace within himself and still stuck to his beliefs. He was great friends with people of many faiths, cultures and races without discrediting his integrity. If you can't remember what name he started with, you may not really appreciate the name he left with. Think about it. Lets be respectful this one time and leave the fukkery for a Monday morning blah post. :-) Happy Weekend.

    We're really losing some legends this year whoever said 2016 wasn't done after Prince wasn't lying ?

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    Thank you for these wise words, hun. I was a kid when I first saw Ali fight on our black and white TV in the 1970s. My uncles and the other men were cheering for Cassius Clay, but the boxing announcer kept saying "Muhammad Ali." I was so confused. "Which was one is Cassius Clay?" I asked the adults. They kept pointing to Ali. It wasn't until years later that I understood Ali changed his name due to his religion. My uncle and many other elders took great pride in Cassius Clay. That's the only name they know him by.

  • the guest

    IN TEARS.

  • hotntot95

    Yes ma'am...more black athletes/entertainers today should take notes...and stop cooning

  • Hugga Bunch

    What makes me tear up is seeing how in awe Prince appears to be in Muhammad's presence. I'm sure it was the same the other way around. This image is a powerful peace.

  • PettyEyezPrime

    This woke me up out of my sleep. It's always sad when someone dies but when it's someone who impacted your life in any way, it's extremely sad. The comfort is knowing that Ali lived a long life and in his prime he did so accomplished many things. RIP Champ and peace and blessing to his family. Happy Saturday Roses!

  • Finding Forever…

    Agree wholeheartedly. For Trump, the MAN you disagree with (his very OWN WORDS & ACTIONS against Muslims) with ALL THAT HE STOOD FOR (A WHOLE LOT WHEN MANY DIDN'T & SADLY TO THIS DAY WON'T EVEN STAND FOR WHAT THEY BELIEVE IN...FEAR of Political Correctness) chose to speak & acknowledge his death, true definition of hypocrisy. I've seen this "tweet" several times & SADDNED me that he's even being acknowledged of ALL TIMES. #ISaidWhatISaid (gottcha ;))...SAD to think of ALL these figures (as even your mention of Malcolm X) that have gone on to paradise that we'll never get to physically see. Truly a blessing if your were blessed to meet them even once & to be related (close friend)...SPEECHLESS ;)

    Starting with Michael Jordon.

  • Miany

    I remember him how he wanted to be remembered.....job well done Ali! He lived a life that allows him a legacy he can be proud of. He gave us something we can stand and be proud of. A real legend...way more than a sports hero, a hero to my people.

  • hotntot95

    Next with Curtis Jackson, Charles Barkley..punkasses

  • Miany

    The first time I saw the video above my eyes were wide. I read about Ali before but, I was in awe seeing him in action. The man was beyond intelligent, quick, witty and 100% correct. No filter needed just raw and unconcerned about who he offended. That's real black man right there. I'm waiting for this generation to revere a man like this. That X, Ali,Garvey type of real.

  • Miany

    Now I let Sandra slide for the name because she Sandra....gotta try to act like she care bout facts but nah...I didn't see Donalds tweet...hard stop! That's bogus cuz we all know this racist fuggtard disrespects blacks and Muslims. In honor of Ali you should take a stand and not show Mr. TUPEES tweet...smh...I'm out. I am not here for the disrespect.

    Mr. Ali was my son's most FAVE ever. He collects posters, t-shirts and books of/about him. This morning I told him CNN was running a special about him, and my kid broke my heart when he said, "I can't watch that Mama." He really was an inspiration to all generations. And this was a beautiful tribute Sandra. Well done.

    Sweet story

  • ReadingIsFundamental4Real

    For everyone who wants to speak for this man's beliefs:

    Ali has sought every opportunity to address injustice, as he explained to an Israeli citizen, while commenting about the 1979 peace treaty between Israel and Egypt.

    He said: "Although I am a Muslim, I don't understand the problems that the two countries have been having over the years. But I know that all people are God's people, regardless of race, religion or color, and I know that God is not for war or violence ... he is for peace. So I think that whatever people are involved -- whether they are Israelis or Arabs or Puerto Ricans or Chinese -- I think that it's nice to see the countries who don't agree religiously, countries who don't agree politically on many things, that they can make some kind of bond to stop killing and bombing regardless of what other countries may say. So I can sympathize with any country regardless of their beliefs -- whether I agree or not -- that they are tired of suffering so many casualties."

    THAT gets me weak EVERY SINGLE GAT DAMN TIME! You hear me????!!

  • PettyEyezPrime

    Jermaine just all around don't give a fugg. Marrying the fam baby mama. Naming kids Jermajesty and Jaafar. Me personally...would have a conversation with Painthead (said like wayne head).

  • Auditor

    Amen and Morning! I went and looked at stars and the planets at an observatory. Saw something moving in the sky coulda been a UFO. Drove 12 miles up and down a mountain thought I wasn't going to make it. Had fun.

  • E-VannaRootsAllEvil

    Amen!!!

  • jussaying

    yes.. bill withers died earlier this year too :

  • Let Your Soul Glow

    Wait. Now I knew about Jermajesty. But he has a kid named Jaafar?? Like the villain in Alladin? LOL!!!!!!

  • B.Sweet is Savage

    Nick Cannon wants to battle Eminem but he still hasn't signed the divorce papers for Mariah. WTH?

  • PettyEyezPrime

    Yes ?. His name is Jaafar Jeremiah Jackson

  • Let Your Soul Glow

    That is so crazy! And papers been just sitting there since 2014!

  • B.Sweet is Savage

    He's the one that filed for divorce. Bruh.

  • Let Your Soul Glow

    Asshole. I don't want you, but wait, somebody else might want you? Then let me make you miserable until I feel better. SMH.

  • PettyEyezPrime

    Nick Cannon wants to battle rap for $100,000 which makes me sad. The album White People Party Music ? well...sigh. Now I'm not going to knock this Black man's hustle but his wrapping is...sigh

  • PettyEyezPrime

    He trying to get paid. He wants TMZ to call him and he'll the facts. He said THIS ain't it.

  • B.Sweet is Savage

    You said it right wrapping.. he should be wrapping presents for dem babies instead of trying to be in a rap battle that he's going to lose.

  • B.Sweet is Savage

    You're not going to be shyt today are you? You're trying to prep us for the way you're going to act up today.

  • Let Your Soul Glow

    Well, that what IS is?? Because if they settled custody and money 2 years ago, what could possibly be the hold up. It's not like they need a story line to drag out ala Khlobacca & Dumbar.

  • PettyEyezPrime

    I know a few of his songs, they're catchy and basic and not deep at all. His wrapping bout as deep as as a pothole puddle.

  • PettyEyezPrime

    You know how men hate when you move on in general. They especially hate when you upgrade ala Future and CiCi. Nick trying to re-strategize.

  • Da Puppet Mistress

    Which is random. And stupid.

  • Buttercup

    It was so much fun! I was telling Soul Sis that Frankie Beverly's voice ain't what it used to be (we all know that) but that didn't stop them from putting on a great show.

    Gladys Knight did a wonderful job opening him up. I know those sprite folks that lived in the area of the amphitheatre probably had never heard of Maze but knew they were missing out, because everyone was singing to the top of their lungs.

    As a child I remember watching a rerun of the famous interview between Ali and Howard Cosell.

    Cosell told Ali, “You’re being extremely truculent.” And Ali replied, “Whatever truculent means, if it’s good, I’m that.”

    That was one of the first big words I ever looked up in a dictionary.

    Cassius Clay was named after his father, who was not a slave owner. It was not a slave name. I seriously doubt there was ever a slave owner named Cassius Clay.

    Awww thank you. I will walk to the end of the earth to see a smile on her face. It was the start of her pretty much nursing me since I was already under the weather before the concert. She left me with a huge pot of chicken noodle soup and a spotless apartment. (I call myself tidying up before she comes over, but she just puts that Mom clean on everything.)

    Yes, I'm on page 8. Got slow motions vids of the stare, analyzed her wardrobe and fashion changes from past to present, posted ticket prices of the seats she was in ($26-$32K) and found where she started a hashtag #booboocurry. *faints*
