Muhammad Ali’s Trash Talking Video
Friday Flicks: Epic Trash Talk Montage by Muhammad Ali
The following are some of the most memorable trash talking quotes from the legendary boxing legend, Muhammad Ali. These are not just any trash talking lines; they’re actual quotes taken directly out of his interviews with reporters and other media outlets.
“I don’t care if I get killed.” “You ain’t no Muslim boy! You ain’t no black boy!” “If you want to live, you better start acting like one.” “
Why do they hate us?
Because we’re different!” “We are the only true Muslims around here.”
Ali was known for his outrageous comments during interviews. His statements were often considered racist at the time, but today they seem quite humorous. Here are some of Ali’s most famous quotes from his trash talking videos:
What’s wrong with being white? Why do they hate us?”
All right, what are you going to do when you see me? Shoot me or something?”
“When I die, I’m gonna go down in history as the first person to say ‘I’ve been shot.'”
“Don’t try it again. If you shoot me, I’ll sue your mother.”
“I’d rather be dead than white!”
“White people make too much money.”
“I’m pretty. I can’t be ugly and stupid.”
“Cat’s make milk, but it doesn’t stick to the hairs!”
The great thing about trash talking is that everyone can do it. You don’t need to be a sports star or a professional wrestler, you just need to practice. Like anything else, the more you do it, the better you get.
Most people prefer to trash talk when they’re winning. This is a common mistake that many people make when they’re first starting out. However, this is not the best time to do it. The best time to trash talk is right after you’ve made a good move or gotten a good hit on your opponent. This will let them know that you’re in charge and they need to be scared of you.
Another common mistake people make when trash talking is to focus on the negative aspects of their opponent. While it is important to remind your opponent that they are weak and pathetic, you should also remind them of all their bad habits and how you plan on exploiting them during the fight.
Tips on How to Trash Talk Correctly
There are some simple rules that you need to follow when trash talking. You don’t want to go overboard and say something that could be perceived as bullying or hateful. While it’s perfectly fine to remind your opponent that they are weak and you’re going to beat them, you probably don’t want to say anything that could be considered an outright racial, sexual or religious attack. This type of trash talking can result in serious consequences and should be avoided at all costs.
Here are a few simple guidelines that will help you determine what types trash talking is acceptable and what types should be avoided:
Never say anything racist or discriminatory in nature. This will result in serious consequences.
Don’t insult your opponent’s mother, even if you know they’ve got a crazy mother. As strange as it may seem, this is still a sensitive topic for some folks.
Don’t insult your opponent’s weight. Even if they’re overweight, this could be considered rude and hurt their feelings.
Don’t make sexual comments about your opponent or people in general. Again, this is a sensitive topic for some folks.
Don’t make any sort of remark that might be perceived as anti-Muslim or anti-Caliphate. This can result in your arrest and possible torture at the hands of the religious police.
Don’t go overboard with the trash talking. Once the fight’s over, it’s over. Don’t keep bashing your opponent after you’ve won.
Always assume that the person you’re trash talking will have below average intelligence and will be unable to comprehend anything but the most simple speech.
Never make any direct threats against the Caliphate or the United States of America. Even in trash talking, there are still limits.
Don’t try to insult your opponent’s home or village. While this might not be a problem in rural areas, it still can be taken as an insult to someone who lives in a more urban setting.
Don’t criticize the government, the Caliphate or anything else that might be considered a symbol of patriotism to the American way of life.
Remember: Trash talking is designed to make your opponent angry and distracted. Don’t give them anything to use against you during the fight.
As silly as it may seem, trash talking is an art and one that’s important to learn. If you’re unsure about how to do it, watch some movies or find a sports match and just pay attention to how people do it. Usually, the best trash talkers are also the best fighters. It just gives them that extra edge they need to dominate their opponents.
There is only ONE person you should NEVER trash talk to and that is your instructor! While it might seem like a good idea to get in his face and call him every name in the book, this will only hurt you in the long run. If you anger him or worse, he’ll find some way to make life difficult for you. It’s always best to just keep things professional and only engage in friendly banter, if any at all.
“The best way to win a fight is to avoid getting into one in the first place.” – Creighton
“Loyalty is essential to a person. Without it, you have nothing. With it, you have everything.” – Creighton
One of the most important aspects of being a shadow is loyalty. Shadow Master Carla and Master Ebon have instilled their own brand of loyalty into the shadows they lead. Even the lowest of the low ranking shadows know that their brothers’ and sisters’ lives mean more than their own. Such dedication to one’s brothers and sisters has been an essential part of the shadows for centuries. One could even say that such loyalty is what kept the shadows going for so long.
However, the most important loyalty is to the shadows, then to the shadows Master, then to the Empire, then to yourself and finally to your family. The only time that this formula should be altered is when it conflicts with another universal truth. For example, family takes priority over the shadows. A shadow’s first loyalty must always be to the shadows, for if that loyalty is strong, then the shadows will remain strong.
It is important that you learn this formula while you’re still a shadow apprentice, lest you forget it later on and have to be reminded again, perhaps even more harshly.
The shadows have been keeping peace and order in the shadows for centuries. While they have a good working relationship with the Thieves’ Guild, there are still those that prefer to operate outside the law and the shadows are there to keep them in check.
The shadows also have their hands in everything else that goes on in the underground. They know who deals in illegal goods, who keeps slaves and where all the good bets can be found for games of chance. It’s the shadows job to know everything that’s going on below the streets of Klyton and they take this responsibility very seriously.
As a shadow, you too will be expected to follow all these ideals and more. However, unlike your fellow shadows, you’ll also be taking a more direct approach in protecting the underworld. Your ability to enhance your combat skills will come in very handy for such endeavors.
“We are the shadows, those who fight in the name of justice and the shadows. We show no mercy, for that is not a trait of our order. We do not take hostages, for we want our enemies to see what happens to those that oppose us. We are silent warriors, killers in the night that place the accused face to face with their judge, the executioner. We are the shadows and the shadows are eternal.”
As you sit in the chair, Master Ebon’s words still ring strongly in your mind. You’re ready to take this next step and become a full-fledged member of the shadows. Your instructor takes one last look at you before speaking.
“From this day forward, you shall be known as Shade.” Master Ebon says and then slices his palm. He then runs his hand over your head causing a small cut as well as one down your chest and a couple on your arms and legs. “It is with this blood that I seal your ascension as a full-fledged shadow. May your loyalty never end and may your blades never dull.”
You’re about to thank him, but suddenly a burning sensation starts manifesting all over your body. You begin to scream in agony as you feel your skin burn and begin to turn gray. This pain is far worse than anything you’ve ever experienced before and you can’t help but scream at the top of your lungs.
Your instructors quickly try to comfort you, but it’s no use. You pass out from the pain and don’t wake up until the next morning.
“You made it. I wasn’t sure you would, but that’s why we try the ritual on dummies first. I’m glad you survived.” Master Ebon says to you as he dresses your burns. “We’re changing you now.
You’ll be called Shade and you’ll be a master of your own class of shadows.”
You slowly get up from the bed and walk over to the mirror, dreading what you’ll see. When you finally catch sight of yourself, you see your skin has a gray pallor now. Your body is still the same muscled physique it was before, but you realize you’re far taller than you once were now.
