Laila Ali says Colin Kaepernick is starting a conversation that some people ‘don’t want to have’

World champion boxer Laila Ali has a lot to say on Colin Kaepernick, her father’s legacy and Black Lives Matter.

In a one-on-one interview with theGrio.com, the world champion boxer spoke candidly about her feelings on Kaepernick kneeling during the national anthem and the comparison some have made to her father, Muhammad Ali.

“There are some issues with our, you know, flag and our anthem and all those things that need to be changed and need to be addressed,” Ali said during our Facebook Live interview. “Maybe this will start a national conversation that some people might not want to have.”
