Bill de Blasio plans Black Lives Matter mural outside Trump Tower

Ali was a complicated man who was not flawless, but he was always putting his livelihood and body on the line to say what needed to be said regarding America's racist history in public and private spaces. And now the recent string of George Floyd protests has also sparked a conversation about how Black queer folks tend to get marginalized from the movements for Black liberation - even now, when, ironically, the Black Lives Matter movement was founded by three Black women, Patrisse Cullors, Alicia Garza and Opal Tometi, two of whom identify as queer.

At this point, none of you should be shocked to learn that he's a Trump supporter who repeats all the president's debunked nonsense about Antifa...but yeah. As Stewart tells Yahoo Life, "I did not create transphobia".

The Black Lives Matter Movement has caused people to look around them at the current treatment of Black individuals, to use their privilege and to educate other's on how they too can support the cause and alleviate racial oppression. God loves everyone - he never singled anyone out.

Ali is known as "The Greatest of All Time" and was a lifelong activist who stood up to racism, but Black Lives Matter is different. He told CBS 6 after returning to New York: "When the fires were burning, and people were chanting, I just felt liberated for a brief moment, and I felt for one of the only times in my life that the government had no control over me". Mr de Blasio implemented a citywide curfew earlier this month that received swift criticism as police officers clashed with peaceful protestors on city streets.

Instead, Ali goes a step further, calling out Black Lives Matter as a divisive movement. Antifa never wanted it peaceful. "I would take them all out", Ali Jr. said.

"The president is a disgrace to the values we cherish in New York City", she said. "It starts racial things to happen; I hate that".

"Yes, Black lives matter". "I'm sick and exhausted of these damn threats from people I don't even know who don't think my life matters. All lives matter", the boxing world champion said.

On Wednesday, Ali told KTLA she thought it was a "shame" that Black Americans were still fighting to secure the same things her father supported. This edition is just one way we are stepping up our action.

Nationwide protests against police brutality began following the police killing of 46-year-old George Floyd in Minneapolis. "There have been eight cops fired across the country".

All four officers involved in the arrest were fired and charged with murder or aiding and abetting murder.

"Police don't wake up and think, 'I'm going to kill a n--r today or kill a white man, '" he said.

Ali Jr. said he believed his father would have supported President Trump.
