Muhammad Ali, who was quite racist himself, converts to Islam because Christianity is racist. How does that make this a pro Islam video?

Myths and fairy tales from the bronze and iron ages have no place in the modern world other than in the history books.

Truth is Jesus would have looked Middle Eastern.

His ancestors were not muslim, they were african and could have been any of a hundred different religions.

His comments seem pretty anti-white.

If his comments seemed anti-white they were only in the context of what it was , and in many cases still is, to be a black man. You really didn't think he would be pro-white did you?

But he was quite racist, at least in 1971. I don't think he was a black supremacist but he believed in segregation rather than integration. From the same interview. LINK

He moderated later turning to mainstream Sunni Islam in 1975 after leaving The Nation of Islam. LINK

I define racism as supremacism so no, Ali was not racist.

This illustrates the problem of using the term "racist" so broadly. That's why I said "quite racist" because calling Muhammad Ali racist (being such a loaded word) doesn't sit right - I don't think he looked down on other races, he just rather races didn't mix. Ali was a segregationist. Can you want segregation of races yet not be racist? What do you think?

Well he obviously is, or was, so perhaps you might have to rethink your general assumptions on what a "card carrying Muslim" is.... Personally I've found almost all Muslims I've known to be honest, decent and moral people. That's the way I see Mohammed Ali.
