    It was interesting how around the same time OJ was playing football and building his brand to eventually become the biggest black athlete doing commercials at the time, Ali was refusing to go to Vietnam because he wouldn't fight for a country that treated blacks so poorly, and Olympic athletes were giving the black power fist on the podium.

    Ali lost his boxing license and went to jail for 3 years during his prime.

    "Smith and Carlos knew they would be expelled from the Olympics for making a political statement, but did it anyway to express their disillusion with the racial reality of 1968 America and their support for human rights battles around the world. Today, they are hailed as heroes and received the 2008 Arthur Ashe Courage Award from ESPN. But in 1968, all three were ostracized for their actions by many."

    Why the Black community still defends Simpson when he ignored what was going on at the time just to secure himself a multi-million dollar advertising and movie career is something I'll never understand.
