No Viet Cong ever called me nigger – Muhammad Ali

“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?…Man, I ain’t got no quarrel with them Viet Cong. No Viet Cong ever called me nigger…I’m not going 10,000 miles from home to help murder and burn another poor nation simply to continue the domination of white slave masters of the darker people the world over.”

– Muhammad Ali
