Well here's another way of looking at it - a white conscienscus objector isn't going to get anything like as hard a time as a black one. Secondly, Ali isn't even getting into the organisation he was in if he was white.

If Ali was white and all other aspects of his being remained the same, he wouldn't lose those precious years - his peak years - to a ban.
