Muham med comes t

By PHILIP BLOCK
There is a tendency to dismiss
the man as a gbod showman
whose words and actions are
nothiig more thin mere enter-
tainment.
' There is also a tendency to
dismiss himn as a dreamer whose
plans are out of .touch with the
realities of American society.
Yet the reaction which Mu-
hammed Ali generated Sunday
night demonstrated that both
he and his objectives are worth
more than just passing interest.,
By self-admission, he "speaks
the truth." His familiar dialect
and colorful similes remind you
of his "Louisville Lip" days
when het would talk thousands
into the arenas to see him fight.
But now they are being used to
tell you that the only solution
to the black-white piroblem is
the establishment of a separate
black state. .
Certainly his mixture of Black
Muslim ideology with his clown-
ing imitations of the American
APA out $$$
The Association of Producin
Artists suffered a severe financia
setback yesterday when it wa
revealed that a two-year-old
$250,000 grant from the Nationa
Endowment for the Arts will no
be renewed this year-..
The grant, from the federal gov
ernment's largest arts and hu
manities assistance program, had
to be withdrawn because of las
spring's Congressional appropria
tions cut.
Sources close to the APA indi
cated that the setback will no
effect the company's seventh Ann
Arbor season, which begins to

with a showing of Moliere's "Th
Misanthrope."

Uncle Tom lessens the' sting of
what he has to say. But when he
says that the common ,enemy of
all black Americans is the white
American, you know that his
finger is pointing straight at.
you.
He tells you that it is unnat-
ural for black and white to live
together and you stop and think
about the antiquated' Northern
liberal doctrine of integration on
which you were brought up.
He tells you that if he were
white he would vote for George
Wallace because "Wallace is not
' two-faced, he tells it like it is."'
And then he adds'that "all black
men should get together and if
Wallace was president, he'd
force us to get together"
Even Ali's humorous illustra-
tion of the brainwashing of
American society becomes bit-
tersweetas he rolls off a long
list of "whitewashings" from
White Rain Shampoo to the
White Tornado.
Then he adds the "black is
bad" examples, I i k er being
."blackballed" out of a frater-
nity or being "black-listed" out
of a job and you begin to thinkc
past the humor of his illustra-
g tions.
L Ali's attitude toward other
S black activist and black power
d groups is like the attitude of the
l teacher toward his rebellious
t student. "They have stolen parts
of Elijah Mohammed's program,
which he has been teaching for
- 20 years, but all the ideas come
d from Islam," says Ali.
