*Well now, this is interesting and is sure to turn more than a few heads. We’re referring to a new article in which Muhammad Ali Jr. says his famous father, Muhammad Ali would not be down with Black Lives Matter, calling the movement “racist” and the protesters “devils.”

Ali Jr. says his dad, who stood up to racism when he was alive, would have been sickened by how the protests have turned to violence and looting after the death of George Floyd.

“Don’t bust up s–t, don’t trash the place,” he told The New York Post. “You can peacefully protest.

‘‘My father would have said, ‘They ain’t nothing but devils.’ My father said, ‘all lives matter.’ I don’t think he’d agree.”

As far as the Black lives Matter movement, on the fourth anniversary of his father’s death, Ali Jr., a Muslim like his father, said: “I think it’s racist.”

“It’s not just black lives matter, white lives matter, Chinese lives matter, all lives matter, everybody’s life matters. God loves everyone — he never singled anyone out. Killing is wrong no matter who it is,” Ali said during an hour-long interview with The Post.

On police brutality, Ali Jr. defended law enforcement in general in the interview.

“Police don’t wake up and think, ‘I’m going to kill a n—-r today or kill a white man,’” he said. “They’re just trying to make it back home to their family in one piece.

Speaking of Floyd’s killing at the knee of a white Minneapolis police officer, here’s what Ali Jr. had to say:

“The officer was wrong with killing that person, but people don’t realize there was more footage than what they showed. The guy resisted arrest, the officer was doing his job, but he used the wrong tactic.”

He even agrees with President Trump that Antifa fomented violence during the Floyd protests and should be labeled a terrorist organization.

“They’re no different from Muslim terrorists. They should all get what they deserve. They’re f–king up businesses, beating up innocent people in the neighborhood, smashing up police stations and shops. They’re terrorists – they’re terrorizing the community. I agree with the peaceful protests, but the Antifa, they need to kill everyone in that thing.

“Black Lives Matter is not a peaceful protest. Antifa never wanted it peaceful. I would take them all out.”

Lord have mercy, Muhammad Ali Jr. has issues as far as we’re concerned.  Something tells us that if his daddy was alive we don’t think they would be on the same page as far as BLM and a LOT of other things are concerned. And speaking of concerned, that’s the word we’re thinking of when we think of Muhammad Ali Jr. at this point.
