    If Malcolm X and MLK was alive to day. What will they say about the conditions of blacks today ??

    Did these two great men died for nothing ?? What was the message that was suppose to be part of our legacy ??

    they were isolated and left alone by the Black community in the months before they died and thier legacy is still isolated today, despite the capacity for every Black youth to carry all the audio, video and text of that legacy on a Blackberry.

    Folks should see that movie this and next week on cable called,
    'IT'S A WONDERFUL LIFE"
    because there are real life Black versions of the hero and the villain in the Black community since that movie was made, and what we see today is a Black version of "Potter'sville"

    The sad fact of the matter is no race of people think like individuals, and that is why the making and braking of culture, determines wether one is pliant to mind control or not.

    Therefore unless we control what the IN THING is amongst those who will soon be adults, these 2 great men will be nothing more thenfaces on a postage stamp to future generations.
    Case in point;

    More Black males revered and researched Frank Lucas after seeing "American Gangster" a movie made by Hollywierd,
    then revered and researched Malcolm after seeing him in Spike Lee's "X" a movie made by a brother for his people

    I agree wholeheartedly that we dropped the ball.

    But I figured, If we know when we dropped the ball. Perhaps we can pick it back up . Is it too late ??

    Both men life and death gave an example of what we had to endure , and sacrifice for the masses. And nobody else wanted to pay such a price.

    Both men suffered from deep depression, Paranoia Which was understandable, and both men KNEW they were going to be killed.

    I believe when they died, we also buried their dream because nobody was willing to make such a sacrifices anymore.

    I like what you said about the in thing, and we can;t yet control ourselves more less anything or anybody else. We are not in no condition. And looks like the system is designed for us to stay in this piss poor state of mental chains.

    So ultimately they achieved exactly what they wanted by taking their life and make them motors which was much better to keep us under control.


    Does that make sense to you ?? ( Hoping, I explain that correctly ) With MLK birthday next month and black history month rights around the corner. I Wonder if both men had the hindsight to see what we became in the future. Would they make such sacrifices all over again.

    In short was it worth it ??

    I never understood why won the Oscar for Training Day (a dime a dozen, forgettable movie) and not for X. But it is funny how Black males flock to the gangsta profile and then get mad when someone calls them a criminal.

    You know , why can't you be diplomatic

    and just lie about this issue, you don't have to speak the truth all the time!!!!

    After all of the analyzing and blaming COINTELPRO, and the Disco scene with gov-mob flooding coke into the neghborhoods we must still face the facts that the parents of these teens and GROWN teens, doing whatever and what not,
    were around when Malcolm and Martin were on the scene so as you say our list of excuses is wearing thin

    Same reason Halle Berry got it for doing a porn movie, Monster's Ball,

    but not for her role in "Their Eyes Were Watching God", by Zora Neal Hurston. Dif award but at least an Emmy

    Those men didn't die for us.

    Those who did die for us did not do so for nothing.
