Muhammad Ali Jr. Speaks Out About Being Detained After Officials Asked if He Was Muslim
Muhammad Ali Jr. , son of legendary boxing champion Muhammad Ali , said he was detained for nearly two hours at the Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport earlier this month by immigration officials who repeatedly asked if he is Muslim.
Ali Jr., 44, was traveling with his mother, Khalilah Camacho-Ali, to Florida from a speaking engagement in Montego Bay, Jamaica, according to the Courier-Journal. He opened up about the Feb. 7 incident to CBS News, noting that officials separated him from his mother immediately and repeatedly asked him about his religion.
Or was it a case of expected Muslim Privilege?
