In the current state of our world…. the box we live in; the world is a picture with a different view to the billions that live in it. With respect to Black History month there are a number of specials featuring sports figures, political leaders, and educators etc. Although I know the story of the most recognizable athlete on the planet (NOT Michael Jordan), I caught a behind the scenes TV special on the iconic legend, Mohammad Ali. Something that I have come to grips with is that although he is most recognized for his outstanding accomplishments in the ring, he is a hero to many because like few movie stars, athletes, and entertainers of today’s generation, Ali stood for something. Like many of Ali’s peers, such as Bill Russell, Jim Brown, Sydney Poitier, Harry Belafonte, and Sam Davis Jr., the aforementioned didn’t fall victim to their money, fame and social status in exchange for what they believed in. This brings me back to our current generation of entertainers and athletes where few and far between do most stand for something besides a dollar. Too many times worried about their social status or the effects of their beliefs on their endorsement deals, no one stands for anything anymore. Ali, once the champion of the world, bigger then Floyd, Tyson, or Sugar Ray he traded his riches and fame for what he felt was right in his heart. He rejected being drafted in the US Army to fight a war in another country at a time when America was in a war within itself. As a result he was stripped of his heavy weight title, his riches and heavily ridiculed for his decision. In saying this I hope that as time continues to pass that the stars of today start to stand for something more then the bottle service in a club, TV appearances and big paydays. When it’s all said and done one can’t take any of that along but a legacy of morals and beliefs will live forever; what’s your legacy?
