It's definitely wrong and I agree with you that we need to move forward with progressive and intelligent ways of thinking. But I also want to be mindful of the fact that this was a totally different time and era. That type of thinking is not productive at all I certainly don't agree with it. But I'm pretty sure Ali today does not see things in the same way he did then.

I don't excuse Ali but at the same time I understand why he was the way he was. Doesn't make it any less wrong though and thankfully we are moving towards a more progressive, logical way of thinking where race, gender and sexual preference doesn't matter anymore.
