Also, off topic here, that fight went 15 rounds and was close, IMO. Berbick almost defeated a prime Holmes! And Tyson brutally destroyed Berbick within 4 rounds! And Tyson also annihilated Holmes in 4 rounds! Just shows you how special and dangerous Tyson was during this time.
I only posted that because it was the quickest pic of him I could find to make a comparison. I agree with the golden jet...Joe Louis' son-in-law looks like the older version. I think you nailed it homie.
Are you insinuating that the Brown Bomber was a RACIST?
Well considering all the horrible things that white people put him through could you blame him?
I don't think Joe was racist. I really don't see it that way.
MUHAMMAD ALI was a blatant racist, even a speaker in the Nation of Islam and Malcolm X's right hand man. Even when Malcolm saw the error of his ways and became peaceful after his trip to Mecca, Muhammad stayed racist and remained loyal to that damn Elijah Muhammad and the NOI. There are PLENTY of interviews in the 70s where Ali talked of praising segregation, he didn't like interracial marriages and children and he even spoke at KKK rallys.
Did Joe Louis do any of that? The answer is a big no. Joe loved everyone. Sure a lot of racist white people and the government did him dirty. But many of Joe's closest friends and handlers were white. Frank Sinatra and Max Schmeling for example were two of his best friends.
