A lot of racists existed during the time period he was fighting, he may have been racist to some extent because at that time period people weren't exactly getting along the most. But then again I never heard of accusations of Foreman or Frazier being racist... So maybe I'm just looking for an excuse to protect Ali?
But I kind of agree with what you're say but at the same time I don't, because there's many Black athletes who no one ever accused of being racist, but maybe it was because Ali was so outspoken? Who knows, I'm not Ali so I don't know what he thought of white people or if he didn't view them as white people but just people... Isn't Ali himself part white? Not saying he couldn't still have problems with white people, because there's self-hating racists of all ethnicities. People really are weird.
