No Vietnamese Ever Called Me Nigger:
Wise words of the former world-famous professional boxer Muhammad Ali. In an era defined by endless war—when he was drafted and was told that he must fight the communists—his reply was, “No Vietnamese ever called me a nigger”. Consequently, Ali was stripped of his title, expelled from boxing and sentenced to five years in prison.

what is sick about the first 6 gifs is that the scene was totally unscripted and those are the real emotions that Will Smith had because he never had a father growing up himself and wow goddamn go Will
It really pisses me off when people leave out this part of the gifset:
I hardly ever see this one gif used in the same gifset anymore.
To me, this is the bravest one of them all. Because I know this feeling. I ask myself this every damn day. I know how hard this is. And goddamn, does it hurt. But to ask this on film, to a gigantic cast and crew of which many are your friends, is incredible.
this picture should have more then the amounts of notes it has, this shows us that not ever thing is “picture perfect” and that behind that smile and those eyes there is fear . So i beg you to please reblog this instead of a pair of shoes, someone smoking a blunt, and clothes … because this picture is literally worth 1,000 words
This is insanely powerful.
As someone who grew up in an abusive household, I will never fucking fail to reblog this. People pull bullshit all the time over people getting abused. They make it to where it’s covered up, the victim’s fault, or they don’t care about it. This is happening RIGHT NOW and could be happening to your own neighbor, mother, sister, brother, grandparents, teachers, mail-deliverer. Anyone. IT is a nightmare.
