The most disturbing image from Thrilla In Manila  


It wasn't all the racist stuff Ali did w/r/t Frazier.

It wasn't Ali speaking at a Klan rally.

It wasn't the footage of the actual fights.

It was the interview with the last surviving member of Frazier's corner from that fight from his dirty kitchen. The contrast of him dressed to the nines (bold suit, jewlery, etc) with the dirty kitchen pot behind him is pretty ammusing. Then, to his right, there is a dirty microwave with a sign in front of it. "Do not put any aluminum foil in the microwave". (yes, i had to freeze frame it to read it). And then, i noticed what was on top of the microwave......A ROLL OF ALUMUNIUM FOIL!
