WASHINGTON, Might 24 (Reuters) – U.S. President Donald Trump on Thursday issued a posthumous pardon to boxer Jack Johnson, the primary African-American heavyweight champion, who was jailed a century in the past because of his relationship with a white girl.

 “I imagine Jack Johnson is a worthy particular person to obtain a pardon, to right a mistaken in our historical past,” Trump stated.

 In a case that got here to represent racial injustice, Johnson was arrested in 1912 with Lucille Cameron, who later turned his spouse, for violating the Mann Act. The legislation was handed two years earlier and made it a criminal offense to take a lady throughout state traces for immoral functions.

 Johnson died in 1946.

 In signing the pardon, the president cited “great racial rigidity” throughout the time Johnson was champion. “He actually represented one thing that was each very lovely and really horrible on the identical time,” Trump stated.

 Actor Sylvester Stallone, well-known because the star of the “Rocky” boxing-movie franchise, and former world heavyweight boxing champion Lennox Lewis flanked Trump for the pardon within the Oval Workplace. In April, Trump tweeted that he was contemplating the pardon after speaking to Stallone.

 Earlier on Thursday, Stallone posted a photograph of himself on the White Home on Instagram with the caption “Ready for the second to enter the oval workplace for the pardon…”

 Within the Oval Workplace, Trump stated of Stallone: “I like his films.”

 “This has been a very long time coming,” Stallone stated, including that Johnson served because the inspiration for the character of Apollo Creed within the Rocky films.
