This Woman's Eyes Burn When She Drinks Water. Which Would Be Weird If Not For...

In New York, Gov. Cuomo is considering allowing fracking. If I were him, I'd take a rain check. Just ask these people who are suffering from unintended consequences of fracking. The water at :17 is from what is theoretically a potable well. And the guy at :43, who breaks my heart, isn't an actor (and neither is anyone else in this heartbreaking video.)

It is safe to say that the wise words of Muhammad Ali stands the test of time. Widely considered to be the greatest heavyweight boxer the world has ever seen, the legacy of Ali extends far beyond his pugilistic endeavors. Throughout his career, he spoke out about racial issues and injustices. The brash Mohammed Ali (or who we once knew as Cassius Clay) was always on point with his charismatic rhetoric— despite being considered arrogant at times. Even so, he had a perspective that was difficult to argue with.

As a massive boxing fan—and a huge Ali fan—I have never seen him more calm and to the point then in this recently posted BBC video from 1971. Although Ali died in 2016, at 74 years old, his courage inside and outside the ring is legendary. In this excerpt, Ali explained to Michael Parkinson about how he used to ask his mother about white representation. Even though the interview is nearly 50 years old, it shows exactly how far we need to come as a country on the issues of racial inclusion and equality.
