    NFL legend Jim Brown said Muhammad Ali's biggest opponents were prejudice and bigotry.

    "I'd like to make one thing very clear, Muhammad Ali loved people, and he had white friend as well as black friends — and the only thing that he hated was discrimination and racism," Brown said Sunday on NBC's "Meet the Press."

    Asked by "MTP" moderator Chuck Todd what lesson today's athletes should take from the pair for the things they did for them '60s," Brown said, "Money is not God, and human dignity is very important."

    "Your integrity is way up there. And as a single human being, if you carry yourself in a certain way you can defy all evil that comes at us," he added.
