"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.

ox45tallboy: Dear Jerk: Malcolm X: A Life of Reinvention, is a much more lively book than I was expecting. I recommend it to anyone who is mildly racist or better.

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.


It sounds like your friend is someone who should decide what is best, then do the opposite.

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.

"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.

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.

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.

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?

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.

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
