2) Don't go to Mexico

Considering the level of violence the nation of islam advocates, it's hard to garner a lot of sympathy when one of them is subjected to it. That being said, it was incredibly evil if it was all over the bill - but if we're honest, that argument probably turned to a race issue..

Wow, troubled kid who brought a knife to school in the third grade, arrested in Iran for god knows what, mother buster for trying to put a hit on Ferrekhan, set his grandmothers house on fire in which she burned up in, and people are saying "the poor thing, he was in mexico, to report on deportation, but he just happened to wonder into a Mexican whorehouse, drinks 1200 dollars worth of booze, then shows his ass when the tab comes."  Gee, what happens south of the border.  Ain't no Blackomatic immunity for deadbeats, and you do not run your mouth down there.

"This religion (Islam) recognizes all men as brothers. It accepts all human beings as equals before God, and as equal members in the Human Family of Mankind. I totally reject Elijah Muhammad's racist philosophy, which he has labeled 'Islam' only to fool and misuse gullible people as he fooled and misused me. But I blame only myself, and no one else for the fool that I was, and the harm that my evangelical foolishness on his behalf has done to others."

-- Malcolm X

There are those who will consider it their duty, as friends of the Negro people, to tell us to revile him, to flee, even from the presence of his memory, to save ourselves by writing him out of the history of our turbulent times. Many will ask what Harlem finds to honor in this stormy, controversial and bold young captain - and we will smile. Many will say turn away - away from this man, for he is not a man but a demon, a monster, a subverter and an enemy of the black man - and we will smile. They will say that he is of hate - a fanatic, a racist - who can only bring evil to the cause for which you struggle! And we will answer and say to them : Did you ever talk to Brother Malcolm? Did you ever touch him, or have him smile at you? Did you ever really listen to him? Did he ever do a mean thing? Was he ever himself associated with violence or any public disturbance? For if you did you would know him. And if you knew him you would know why we must honor him.

MALCOLM X: Why? Because only a man who is ashamed of what he is will marry out of his race. There has to be something wrong when a man or a woman leaves his own people and marries somebody of another kind. Men who are proud of being black marry black women; women who are proud of being black marry black men.
This is particularly true when you realize that these Negroes who go for integration and intermarriage are linking up with the very people who lynched their fathers, raped their mothers, and put their kid sisters in the kitchen to scrub floors. Why would any black man in his right mind want to marry a lyncher, a murderer, a rapist, a dope peddler, a gambler, a hog eater... Why would any black man want to marry a devil... for that's just what the white man is.

oops, sorry bout all that - Malcolm

My friend inherited his dad's house in Cuernavaca years ago and spent a few years living down there.  It all ended when he got into a drunken fight with the local strip club owner and tried to report him to the Federales for having a gun behind the bar.  The Federales were friends with the club owner and took my friends outside, kicked the shiat out of them and robbed them.  Then hog-tied them, drove them out to the jungle and told them to run as they took potshots at them.  My friend lost his front teeth and half a finger.  They were lucky they were sober enough to run fast.

What if you're not a racist, but are considering it as a philosophy? Like, you're out on bond and facing a lengthy prison sentence, and have decided your best option for survival is to join a prison gang? Would being able to quote Malcolm X help or hurt your chances with joining a white or latino gang?

I'm just asking for, um, a friend.

And, of course, the traditional method of attacking a successful black man in America--insinuate he's a homosexual. If that doesn't work, hire some people to murder him.

lol. Yeah, A few times. I was in Compton yesterday and I'll be in Inglewood tomorrow (and sometimes at night...ooooohhhhhh). And yes, I'm very white. I've been to a few countries where they were, let's say, not fans of white Americans. In the end, hard working people are just people and can almost always find common ground to at least be civil. Granted, there are always the psychos who come after you because of race or nationality. Some of them even try to kill you. I know, shocking, huh? This happens on each side of the race divide. I've even been kicked out of a bar for being white, no shiat. Ever been kicked out of someplace for being whatever race you are? In America?

Hey dumbass, the Congressional Black Caucus wasn't formed by a group of racially tolerent white people. It was created because the black members of Congress were completely outnumbered and felt underrepresented. Smh.

I do not know many ethnic people other than myself from the comfort of the US who picked up and moved to a war torn country, learned the language, got a a job, went native.

I grew up in New Orleans, which is not a safe town, albeit I love my city.  My US big city radar is nothing like the one i gained in South America.

I do not know many ethnic people other than myself from the comfort of the US who picked up and moved to a war torn country, learned the language, got a a job, went native.

I grew up in New Orleans, which is not a safe town, albeit I love my city.  My US big city radar is nothing like the one i gained in South America.

Brown people truly do not fark around.


Balls. You have them.

Hugsies?


You are poor and you probably couldn't influence a woman to give you a dry handjob, so I wasn't depending on you to convince white America that an apology is warrented. I don't think black people are looking for that, anyway. I'm not.

DROxINxTHExWIND: TheShavingofOccam123: studs up: TheShavingofOccam123: Malcolm X apologized for being a bigot 48 years ago. Please don't wait that long to apologize for your bigotry.

And, of course, the traditional method of attacking a successful black man in America--insinuate he's a homosexual. If that doesn't work, hire some people to murder him.

Wait, what?
More importantly, are you trying to insinuate that modern America with it's black president, congressional black caucus, celebrities and black business leaders is still systemically racist? Really?
Have you never been out of this country? There are a lot of really oppressed cultures out there. Black America....not so much anymore. And thank God for that.

Have you ever been out of the suburbs?


 black president

You mean the Kenyan?

 congressional black caucus

Hey dumbass, the Congressional Black Caucus wasn't formed by a group of racially tolerent white people. It was created because the black members of Congress were completely outnumbered and felt underrepresented. Smh.


celebrities

During segregation arguably the most recognizable man in the world was Mohammed Ali, a black man. Popularity is not equality.

and black business leaders

Do you mean all 6 black CEOs of Fortune 500 companies?

 is still systemically racist?

Yes, clown. It is.


This just in: The VAST MAJORITY OF THE COUNTRY IS WHITE.  Ergo, yeah, there's gonna be a lot more white CEOs.

studs up: Somaticasual: Considering the level of violence the nation of islam advocates, it's hard to garner a lot of sympathy when one of them is subjected to it. That being said, it was incredibly evil if it was all over the bill - but if we're honest, that argument probably turned to a race issue..

Malcom was a hero to most
But he never meant shiat to me you see
Straight up racist that sucker was
Simple and plain
Mother fark him and Farrakhan...
(reimagined)


After Malcolm X finished his pilgrimage to Mecca, he changed his views on racism. He met light skinned, blue eyed Muslims, and discovered that they were brothers in Islam with him. It just sounds stupid... talking trash about a great man. He got killed before he could turn some of the ideas like yours around.

Anyway, read a damn book once in a while.

FTA:

When the argument over the tab broke out around 3 a.m. as they prepared to leave, the two were separated by bar employees, but, for reasons the prosecutor said had not yet been determined, only Mr. Shabazz was beaten.

He said he found no evidence that race or any motive other than robbery was in play, and there was no indication that the attackers knew Mr. Shabazz came from a famous family.


He was probably the only one beaten because he was black.  When it's 3:00am and alcohol's involved, people tend to get a little tribal.  It's natural.

"Mr. Shabazz, who for years had wrestled with living in the shadow of his grandfather's fame,"

I'm sure he was just about to turn his life around.

Ok, after reading I'll give you he does seem to have had a crisis of conscience about the initial idiotic views.
But one man's change for the better hardly excuses the actions or viewpoints of the nation of islam itself, which still considers white people the devil apparently and doesn't shy away from threats of violence at the very top (farrakhan). So, it's still hard to feel bad about it all things considered, and I stand by the assumption that race or "do you know who I am?" still factored in.

//if it makes you feel any better, I'd harbor the same feelings about the head of any racist group.

The whole family is jinxed.

Earl Little:  Fell (or pushed) under a trolley car and run down.

Louise Little:  After the death of her husband, jilted by a suitor after being made pregnant by him, subsequently went nuts and spent most of the rest of her life in a mental institution.

Malcolm (Little) (X) Shabazz:  Shot to death.

Betty (X) Shabazz:  Died in a fire set by her grandson.

Malcolm Shabazz:  Beaten to death.

If I were a member of the Little/Shabazz family, I'd stay away from mirrors and ladders.  Also Mexican whorehouses.

The police here arrested two men on murder and robbery charges on Monday in the beating death last week of the grandson though many questions about the case remained unresolved.

TheShavingofOccam123: "This religion (Islam) recognizes all men as brothers. It accepts all human beings as equals before God, and as equal members in the Human Family of Mankind. I totally reject Elijah Muhammad's racist philosophy, which he has labeled 'Islam' only to fool and misuse gullible people as he fooled and misused me. But I blame only myself, and no one else for the fool that I was, and the harm that my evangelical foolishness on his behalf has done to others."

-- Malcolm X

There are those who will consider it their duty, as friends of the Negro people, to tell us to revile him, to flee, even from the presence of his memory, to save ourselves by writing him out of the history of our turbulent times. Many will ask what Harlem finds to honor in this stormy, controversial and bold young captain - and we will smile. Many will say turn away - away from this man, for he is not a man but a demon, a monster, a subverter and an enemy of the black man - and we will smile. They will say that he is of hate - a fanatic, a racist - who can only bring evil to the cause for which you struggle! And we will answer and say to them : Did you ever talk to Brother Malcolm? Did you ever touch him, or have him smile at you? Did you ever really listen to him? Did he ever do a mean thing? Was he ever himself associated with violence or any public disturbance? For if you did you would know him. And if you knew him you would know why we must honor him.

-- Ossie Davis


"islam' enslaves and treats its women like property.  Women are subjected to restrictions of all sorts.  'islam' as all religions, is for the weak minded.  And I couldn't care less about malcolm x, or any other 'black leader' until they address the holocaust that blacks are perpetrating on OTHER BLACKS and which is now starting to consume non-blacks.  And that's just outside of shoes stores for new shoe launch day!/wish I was kidding.

It makes no sense to me that black youth want equal opportunities and so often I see the percentages card produced. Fine, have it your way. We will have exactly equal parts to everything in life. Not because you have developed and honed skills to earn positions of authority but rather you are black. Making you not the best suited to take on challenges, rather the best suited of your race to take on these challenges.

Inspire to be great, not to just finish ahead of medium.
