Reads for June 6

Hillary Clinton handily won Puerto Rico to add to her win to the Virgin Islands on Saturday.

She will wind up the primary on Tuesday with a giant win in New Jersey and likely a smaller win in California.

A few reads from the Trotskyite WSWS which are worth reading:

There is a good reason why I didn't vote for Obama's re-election, and it lies in these articles from the WSWS here and here.

I don't have a lot of hope Hillary Clinton will reverse course. Non-educators don't have a clue what is really going on.

Another read from the WSWS is this appreciation of Muhammad Ali:

After upsetting reigning heavyweight champion Liston in February 1964 at the age of 22, the boxer aligned himself with the black nationalist Nation of Islam and changed his name to Muhammad Ali. He defended his title numerous times, before announcing in 1966 that he would not serve in the US military and then refusing induction into the armed forces a year later.

Ali explained at the time: “My conscience won’t let me go shoot my brother, or some darker people, or some poor hungry people in the mud for big powerful America. And shoot them for what? They never called me nigger, they never lynched me, they didn’t put no dogs on me, they didn’t rob me of my nationality, rape and kill my mother and father... Shoot them for what?... How can I shoot them poor people, Just take me to jail!”

Ali’s boxing license was immediately suspended and his title stripped from him by the cowardly, “patriotic” boxing authorities. He was widely vilified by sports writers, generally among the stupidest and most superficial members of the journalistic fraternity. The venerable Red Smith claimed that the fighter had made himself “as sorry a spectacle as those unwashed punks who picket and demonstrate against the war.” Another sports writer-sage, Jim Murray of the Los Angeles Times, termed Ali a “black Benedict Arnold.”
