*Here’s one we didn’t see coming and it’s easy to see why based on what this woman has to say. Khalilah Camacho Ali – who was married to Ali from 1967 to 1976 and says she was his adviser for his biggest protest … refusing to fight in the Vietnam war – is putting in her two cents regarding the Colin Kaepernick US flag salute boycott.
“What he’s doing right now is not heroic,” Khalilah told TMZ. “I would love to meet with him or talk to him on the phone to help share his message in a better way.”
“I helped Muhammad decide whether he was going to the army or going to jail. He listened to my every word. You see the impact that had on our nation? Colin could absolutely have the same impact if he made the right decisions to really make a difference.”
And what exactly would she propose that Kaepernick do?
“The first thing I would do is ask him about his stance on humanity … what exactly is he trying to improve and how is he going to make that happen? Next, I’d have him make a retraction for his actions against the American flag. He needs to apologize.”
“I will help him meet the groups that will fight with him, donate to charities of all people — not just minorities — because we cannot single anyone out. If he wants isolation to end, he needs to prove that he cares about all people, and not just his people.”
“If he is willing to get off his high horse and humble himself, we could do a lot of good together.”
Hmm, so that’s her plan? Hopefully her meet up with Kap will never happen. He seems to be holding his own quite well without her input.
