When you look around the world today, perhaps if looking from a glass half empty, instead of a glass half full tilt, injustice can be observed everywhere.
Conflict, impending famine, worldwide disease and more.
In boxing, perhaps one of the biggest injustices ever was the story of Rubin ‘The Hurricane’ Carter.
A fighter who was a contender for the middleweight crown who was falsely tried with deceit and lies, and wrongfully convicted of murder.
Robbing him of his dream to become middleweight champion in his day.
This movie right here still one of the great films of all-time:
He wouldn’t give up though.
He never did quit. Later winning his freedom and was released. Justice. The people’s champion. In more ways than one.
Dying eventually later in life in 2014, in Canada.
Born in New Jersey, Carter perhaps is testament to the required perseverance and resolve needed in today’s times more than ever.
A great song by Bob Dylan too on the story of the one and only Hurricane:
