Wһite promoters аnd business interests, who controlled much οf the boxing establishment, threatened t᧐ cancel future fights.

KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia (AP) — A piece of a wing found washed up on Reunion Island last week is from Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 that vanished last year, Malaysia's prime minister announced Thursday, saying he hoped the news ends the "unspeakable" uncertainty of the passengers' families.

It is the largest of 23 fires statewide and takes up nearly a third of the 10,000 firefighters dispatched in California, which has become tinder box amid years of drought.

Half of African-American respondents, including 6 in 10 black men, said they personally had been treated unfairly by police because of their race, compared with 3 percent of whites.

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama assailed critics of his Iran nuclear deal Wednesday as "selling ɑ fantasy" to the American people, warning Congress that blocking the accord would damage the nation's credibility and increase the likelihood of more war in the Middle East.White's view, she says, was shaped by exposure to racism as a child and also by a family she describes as dysfunctional.

In South Los Angeles, where police last year shot and killed Ezell Ford, a 25-year-old unarmed black man, residents interviewed by Reuters said that while they welcomed the prospect of the Civil War-era flag finally being purged from public grounds, they did not see its removal as a watershed moment for race in America.

Police initially said that Montano had been armed with a gun and that he exchanged fire with the first responding officer, but Aaron said later Wednesday that he had been armed with a pellet gun. As he fled out the back, Montano encountered a SWAT team and was shot dead, Aaron said. About two dozen gunshots could be heard in a 10-second period in raw video footage posted online by WKRN TV.

Aaron identified the victim only as Steven because he said the man did not want to bring any more attention to his family. One of the people hit with the pepper spray in the theater also had a cut that evidently was caused by a hatchet, Aaron said.

Till's great-uncle Moses Wright testified during the trial that Milam and Bryant abducted his nephew at gunpoint and headed toward a car parked outside the house, asking a question of someone who was inside.

Tutored by the Black Power Movement's most revolutionary symbol, however, Ali would find himself unwittingly taking Malcolm's place as America's most well-known black Muslim. This lesson proved fatal in Malcolm's case, when former colleagues, including Ali himself, shunned him after he left the Nation of Islam. Ali would publicly regret not having stood by his mentor's side in later years.

He wielded black history as a sword against white claims of racial inferiority. Ali became the most visible symbol of Black Power's radical critique of American imperialism, structural racism and white supremacy. Like the early Malcolm X, he used the Nation of Islam's belief in racial separatism as a shield against the political violence associated with efforts at racial integration.

His odyssey helped fuel campus protests, emboldened medal-winning black athletes to raise defiant black-gloved fists at the Mexico City Olympics of 1968, brought anti-war sentiment into American living rooms and contoured wider debates over race and democracy that endure to this day. Black Power shaped Ali's global political imagination, offering him a framework to link his religious beliefs, athletic gifts, and outspoken personality.

The Confederate battle flag is, at its core, a symbol of white supremacy rooted in antebellum slavery. The Civil War, which began at Fort Sumter, South Carolina, in 1861 and concluded at Appomattox, Virginia, in 1865, was fought over the continuation of racial slavery and the very meaning of American democracy.

" The bout wɑs fought in brutal heat аnd Ali won when Frazier'ѕ trainer wοuld not aⅼlow һim to gо out for the final round. Aⅼі defended his title three times іn 1975 Ьefore meeting Frazier ⲟnce more in Octοber in the "Thrilla in Manila.

It was Ali's first defeat after 31 victories. Frazier dropped him with a left hook in the last round and, even though Ali rose quickly, Frazier won the fight on a decision. The first, billed as the "Fight of tһe Century" in New York in 1971, was a tremendous battle that showed Ali still possessed his skills.

Both Abdullah and White see far more intractable problems facing African-Americans than the Confederate flag, including a justice system with an incarceration rate six times higher for black men and a high rate of gun violence in many neighborhoods. In the United States, blacks are more than twice as likely to die from gunshots as whites, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

He proved more accessible than Nation of Islam leader Elijah Muhammad, who gave Ali his name as part of a successful effort to pry the young champion from the grips of his most important mentor, Malcolm X. By the late 1960s, Ali's unforgiveable blackness helped him emerge as a transcendent and global figure of black liberation. He possessed more charisma than his friend Stokely Carmichael, who tutored the heavyweight champion on the nuances of his own groundbreaking anti-war activism. He became more "black" than James Brown, the godfather of soul, who shouted to the world that he was "proud" to be black.

Ali did not have to be in a boxing ring to command the world stage. Ali flew to Baghdad, met Saddam and left with 14 American hostages. In 1990, a few months after Iraq invaded Kuwait, Iraqi ruler Saddam Hussein held dozens of foreigners hostages in hopes of averting an invasion of his country.
