I feel as though integration made our communities and people worse off, than we were back then, and i think that Civil Rights Movement leaders made a mistake in fighting for integration, when they should've joined Malcolm X and fought for our EQUALITY as human beings, and African-Americans! I think they got caught up in integrating, rather than actually doing what the CRM movement was about , and that was CIVIL RIGHTS, and EQUALITY, which is very lacking and destroying our people! I identify more with Malcolm X's stance than MLK's.....I'm not part of Islam, but i think Malcolm X's theme of "eye for an eye", and the Pro-Black Power Movement was making more of an impact than just us marching into hoses and dogs, i don't take anything away from MLK, as he is a legend and was a strong leader, but i think his method was very flawed, and in the end by assimilating our people with the majority white culture, we have suffered mightily under the white supremacist rule of this racist country, and i think MLK played right into the hands of white amerikkka, and that was to be peaceful and calm while our base suffered, and so it was basically a silent blackmail so to say! I think the Pro-Black Movement was really uniting our people and if not for X being killed, of which it was more than likely a government paid job, then we would've seen a much better response, and our unity and communities would've stayed intact, and flourished, if we had fought for EQUALITY more than just integrating our people with white amerikkka! We have essentially lost our culture because of integrating, and i think that the reason our communities were better off before this generation, was because we hadn't adopted the evil and unnatural ways of white culture, and we lost a lot of our spiritual awareness by integrating, and so we basically have allowed ourselves to suffer peacefully while white supremacy continues to reign and ruin our people! Let me know what you think! I'll respond later, but if you all could bring your ideas to the table and if you also think that the CRM movement was flawed and could've used a little tinkering and more agressive tone and agressive advocating for EQUALITY, and SELF-AWARENESS, then segregation on some levels is very good for our people! Look at the Latinos ASIANS ITALIANS They all run great communities and are united, and they have a sense of pride and loyalty to each other that makes them as united and progressive as their communities are, and they don't integrate and mix like we have, and look at how successful they go about loving themselves, knowing their history and culture, and loving and respecting each other based on their UNITY! Thats what we need!!
