I'm too young to have seen him fight in his prime and stand up for he's refusal to go to war, I can only go on what has been said over the years. I guess some older people didn't like the fact how he went about race issues and calling other blacks uncle Toms...... Some others may say he was a misogynist towards women, i do note touching up his wife is also swept under the carpet.

Icon....yes.

Hero.... not so sure

The way he turned on people who helped him out when he was in a financial mess was really low class.
Calling other black fighters uncle toms wasn't cool and It's well known he used to bash his wife.
These arn't exactly the traits of a hero,the guy was a great boxer but he was a narcissist if ever there was one.
