The President of these United States ‘Pardons Jack Johnson’ was not something I thought I would see today. Flanked by Sylvester Stallone, Lennox Lewis, and Deontay Wilder; The President corrected what he felt was an injustice done to Johnson over 100 years ago.

In the early 1900’s, Johnson violated the ‘Mann Act’, which was “transporting women across state lines for immoral purposes”. However, despite being immoral before the Mann Act was passed, Johnson was convicted by a jury of his peers; An all-white jury.

Johnson was to serve prison time, but he skipped the country and fought elsewhere. He returned seven years later and served his one-year prison sentence. Today, he received a full pardon.

Francis NGannou takes issue with President Donald Trump’s words.

Francis NGannou

Francis NGannou referred to Trump as America’s shame

Donald Trump made plenty of noise last week (and every other week) when it was revealed that he referred to African nations as “Sh*tholes” when speaking about immigration. For those who live in this country who might have come from one of those nations, certainly, it was insulting.

Francis NGannou was speaking with Ariel Helwani when the subject was brought up. Francis said he did hear what Trump had said and when Ariel asked it had bothered him, Francis went on to say the following.

“Yes. I mean, all those people who he was talking about, are people like us. You know, it’s kind of difficult to accept something like that because for myself, I know how it was to talk about a goal for me, to leave my country. To see someone try and break that hope you know, this guy is like shame for America.”

He had more to say, and you can see it for yourself in the video below.
