....Moreover, one thing that has always come to my mind about Malcolm's and the NOI's separatist philosophies was that I could see their ideologies being implemented in larger, inner-city, metropolitan areas like Chicago, Atlanta, NY, Philly, Boston, etc..; but just HOW did the NOI propose to implement this separatism in the DEEP SOUTH amongst the generations of descendants of former slaves still share-cropping, still economically dependent on the white power structure and living under the fear of the dictatorship of white police, the KKK, and local government....which were all ONE IN THE SAME?? I've said before that it was mighty easy for Malcolm to go down to Selma, AL and give his "HOUSE NEGROES and FIELD NEGROES" speech to the Blacks there and then FLY BACK TO NY. How were THESE Black people supposed to work toward social and ECONOMIC independence?...How was the NOI planning to HELP them do so besides, essentially, calling them "Uncle Toms" for supporting Dr. King? Now, yes, Robert F. Williams and the Deacons for Defense & Justice were in the DEEP SOUTH; and, yes, THEY advocated ARMED-resistance to the white power structure....But, just HOW were mostly uneducated, RURAL Blacks in GA/AL/TN/MS/SC/NC/FL supposed to accomplish this SEPARATISM that Malcolm espoused? ...How were THESE Blacks supposed to "have their own everything;" and HOW did the NOI propose to HELP them do so?? ....And really, historically and according to "JIM CROW," we were already "SEPARATE," any way. In many URBAN cities, we already had our own SEPARATE areas of businesses, hubs of the Black communities, because we couldn't go to those same WHITE businesses. -- We had Black schools, Black theaters, Black doctors/lawyers/dentists, banks, hotels, sports etc...almost every commercial/economic endeavor was mirrored in a Black community. ...So, just how more "SEPARATE" did the NOI want us to be?
