in "Ali," Giancarlo Esposito, playing Cassius Clay, Sr., refers to the Nation of Islam as a bunch of "bowtie-wearin', Arab-talkin' niggers"), as an expression of affection, as a joshing taunt, as a subversive appropriation.
Cassius Clay Sr.: Y-y-you what? Well, what's wrong with our name? My name? We-we made you.
Ali: Ain't nobody made me.
Clay Sr.: No bow tie wearing Arab-talkin' nigger
gonna change that.
Ali: Ain't nobody in that ring but me. I made me.
Clay Sr.: You don't know who you are.
