Ali wasn't cool.

Captivating and charismatic, yes.
But not cool.
At his best he was like a big over-grown kid.

King of Cool says,

Jack Johnson, was the Count of Cool.

The 'Art-of-being-Cool', is not trying to draw attention to yourself by being a 'braggadoccio'.

People of Cool, let their presence dictate coolness.

Johnson was cool before there was a template for being cool.

Monzon, of course, was the modern day King of Cool. Arrogant, unsmiling, aloof...these are ingredients for cool.

Johnson was a pure bad ass, his people were getting strung up for just looking at a white woman...Johnson openly ****ed and married white women. He was a true rebel, and also a top 10 ATG heavyweight boxer.

Ali was just a poser, he had no balls.

Ali apparently didnt book hotel rooms, he used to book a whole floor and have a women waiting for him in each room for a 'personal' '***ual autograph'

Aii dad cool moments, funny moments, touching moments, but overall, he was anything but cool. Jack on the intervals, while I have much less knowledge of him, seemed like a real cool, slick guy, great boxer too!

For a change, let's have a lovely chat about these two civil rights icons - which one is cooler and why?

Speak!
Johnson a civil rights icon? Not in his own time.


I would have to say Johnson was cooler. He never let others influence his action or words, and had talents outside of boxing.
