Shaking Up The World

By Sniffles

How prescient was Muhammad Ali? Years ago, he made a statement about the United States that could have been uttered today. In fact, we think that's partly why President Obama cited it in his eloquent statement on Ali's death:

"I am America. I am the part you won’t recognize. But get used to me — black, confident, cocky; my name, not yours; my religion, not yours; my goals, my own. Get used to me."

How exciting that the nation that a bunch of property-owning white guys founded in the 18th century could keep being reborn 240 years later. We cats PURR.
