Are you people serious?! Of all the pictures of Joe Frazier this one that looks likes it's straight out of a minstrel show you decide to use. No sense of RESPECT for the man even now that he's no longer with us. Really?
Goodbye sweet King of pugilism and take your rest in the bosom of Abraham!!
He sure went quick.
I remember his Ali fights vividly, especially the Thrilla in Manila. Joe was a gracious man, even helping out Ali when he was down and out. Too bad Ali didn't have the class to acknowledge that at the time of the first fight.
I guess my first comment will stay in moderation, so I try again:
Shame on The City Paper for choosing a picture that mocks Joe Frazier in his death. I guess racism has no boundaries; from the nipple to the grave, racism doesn't cease to end.
@strangefruit: I held your initial comment because it was way too much. I will say that I love this image. It's a great, up-close shot of Frazier looking really happy, rather than the typical mean mug you find in most images of him.
