Violence begets Violence. The NOI wanted him dead.
So, one minute he is praising the Chinese for killing their Uncle Toms, the next thing, he is being treated like a "Sell out" because of what they THOUGHT he MIGHT say.
I guess that shows that during Black Revolution, EVERYBODY better watch their back...cause if you step out of line from what the status quo defines...you might get it in the back.
In the Spirit of Sankofa and Peace and Love!
Good question Chinelo. Typically, the term revolution involves radical change, overthrowing or the renunciation of something; hence American, French, etc..., resulting in bloodshed. When it comes to Black Revolution, there is little difference, we have shed blood and Malcolm is a good example of that with the lost of his life.
Malcolm Never Changed from His Revolutionary Stand, Nor His Condemnation Of The System Of White Supremacy That Has Caused The Degression Of Afrikans In Amerikkka And Throughout The World.
He never "changed" as you apologetic Assimilationists love to bring up to tarnish his name and true legacy.
What happened is what i've always spoke upon on this forum and in my life to other brothers and sisters, and thats that Orthodox Islam which is nothing but a bastion of Arab Supremacy and Exploitation Of Afrika And Afrikans the same as Christianity and the white man, is what caused him to be swarmed over to the point of trying to encompass the "white arabs" he saw in mecca into his vision of "Black Nationalism" and "Pan Afrikanism", and that couldn't work, because the arabs are essentially caucasions in the lesser extent, just a admixtured version,and they have a history of anti-afrikan actions that i think malcolm tried to steer around, he simply fell victim to RELIGION, but he never lost his TRUE legacy and his blueprint lives on as a guide to what we must do and how we must think, non-religion wise.
So your videos are nothing but a gloss over and mask from an Assimilationist/Integrationist plantation loving view which is why malcolm was indeed killed in the end, because he could not get you integrationists of the 60's to see that your slave mentalities and wish to be whites and next to whites, would be the self-destructive dependency that makes a slave a slave.
Malcolm was fighting two forces, the white man himself, and the lackey integrationist population that divided itself up along religious and class lines to the point that the white man was able to infiltrate and scheme the movements of the 60's and 70's.
Which is why deceitful and genocidal legislative decrees were also able to be put forth in Abortion and Interracial marriages, which were attachments to integration in the whole scope of things, and gave rise to the black feminist movement, and what i call "Black Flight" from each other, to white populations, and so thats why that was a "NEGRO" REVOLUTION, and not a "BLACK" REVOLUTION......
A Negro Revolution is one that is orchestrated and manipulated by the outside whites who want to keep you economically and socially enslaved and controlled by them.
A "Black" Revolution is what was taking place worldwide all over afrika and asia, and ect, where they were removing the white man from over them and taking back what was rightfully and divinely ours, and getting rid of the LACKEYS at the same time, and it was nothing Peaceful or Assimilatory about it.
The Amerikkkan Black Of The 60's Turned Towards The "Negro Revolution" and thats why you have what we have today.
Love the Vids brother Chinelo
If our schools systems were segregated like they used to be, we could show documentaries like this to our youth! We would have better control and be the ones filling our glass (our youths) full of the knowledge we want them to have and know! Maybe we would not have the bull crap that we see with the youth coming up today with no respect what so ever. And maybe their mama’s and daddies would take a sense of pride in them and themselves and be the parents they were meant to be and not hanging out in the clubs looking for life. We have to get a grip on who we are as race and people! We could be loosing out on a whole lot of Malcolm’s out there because we are too busy running the streets pretending with all this talk and letting the white man fill our glass with dumb down crap! Working our next generation back to slavery! ! But that’s another story!
Malcolm was killed, because Elijah Mohammed and his devotees were afraid of loosing their power over the NOI etc…... Malcolm was gaining too much notoriety for his own good! Black Muslims in America and around the world were starting to listen and paying attention to Malcolm’s ideas. They looked to Malcolm as being the new leader of the NOI and or the leader for the majority of black people in America. In addition, when he made his Hajj (pilgrimage to Mecca), it was then that he changed his approach to what he was trying to bring about with his people. Yes, the Hajj changed him but he never swayed from his Revolutionary viewpoints. But, gained a new enlightenment with the presentation of his revolutionary thoughts/ideas. He still stood firm with the “By any means Necessary” concept. However, Elijah Mohammed saw the change/lost of power coming and him not having any power over this new change he knew that if and when Malcolm pulled away from him that it would the start of his decline and split the NOI in two; moving into two separate directions with the majority of the people leaving with Malcolm. To prevent this lost of power and change from happening he had Malcolm assassinated (so they say).
