This soldier’s ferocious outcry for justice, and his extremely confident swagger should fill us with a deep sense of pride. He is important because his victories in the boxing ring galvanized the blows of his words outside of it. He was not only a boxer, but a student of Malcolm X who beat down racism by defying stereotypes, that is by being a black athlete who articulated the most intelligent edicts of the black power movement. Today’s athletes should talk some black nationalism.
