However, on the fourth anniversary of his death, his son, Muhammad Ali Jr. states that his famous father wouldn’t be happy with the Black Lives Matter movement.
During an extensive interview with The New York Post, Ali, 47, said that Black Lives Matter, which doubles as both a slogan and a decentralized activist group, is “racist” and that protesters are “devils.”
Ali, who is Muslim like his father, feels that Black people shouldn’t be singled out.
Ali is a supporter of President Donald Trump and believes that his father would be, too, were he alive today.
