Brawny, Brainy and Funny

The recent events in Ferguson have put a larger spotlight on racism then usual. I ran across this small portion of a 1971 interview with Muhammad Ali.

Ali is a special guy. He was arrogant to a fault, spit in the eye of the military industrial complex, denounced the power structure, religious leanings and bigotry of his country and is beloved by all.

    Fox News guest: Was Michael Brown too large to be an ‘unarmed teen’?

    Appearing on Fox & Friends, a former nominee for Labor Secretary took the media to task for inflaming racial tensions by describing slain teen Michael Brown as “unarmed” when he was, in fact, “six foot four and weighed almost three hundred pounds.”

    Fox News Worried That Referring To Michael Brown As “Unarmed Teen” Might Be Misleading

    In an op-ed Chavez wrote for the New York Post, she argued that “The actual images of Brown on the video surely do not bring to mind a harmless teen.”

    BTW Mike Brown did not rob a convenience store. There was no robbery complaint. The full video shows him paying for the merchandise.

    I guess since I’m 6′ 6″, that means I’m perpetually armed, whether I am or not. I have a pretty good reach, but since I can’t shoot bullets out of my fingers, I tend to think I would lose a confrontation with a gun.

    I don’t understand most of the people who talk on my TV. I turned on one of the Sunday morning “news” shows, for the first time in years, and there was Peggy Noonan saying she thought Rick Perry’s presidential bid was going to be enhanced by his getting indicted. I for one, am getting fairly sick of seeing indicted Texas politicians beaming smiles for their mug shots. Is he going on “Dancing with the Stars” too?
