    This morning brotha oldsoul talked about Malcolm X to commemorate his recent 88th birthday. Well, da river got to thinking. What do you mean uh oh? Actually I've thought of two challenges that will get y'all to thinking and spark some interesting conversation Since they are kinda different, I will put each in it's own thread.

    Challenge 1

    What would Malcolm have had to say about the election of Barack Obama to the presidency? Base your answer on actual opinions Malcolm expressed in his speeches before and after his journeys to Africa and Europe.

    Glad you mentioned before and after his journeys to Africa and Europe, because bro. Malcolm X walked away from the Black Muslims setting up the OAAU, and showed a degree of tolerance toward non blacks. Here's his daughter's position on how she felt Malcolm X would feel about Mr. Obama:

    Thanks brotha Clyde.

    Though I could not understand what she said. Videos are difficult for me because of my hearing impairment. If you could give me a run down of what she said, I could get the gist of it or maybe even transcribe it since it is so short.

    Thanks again,

    river

    Ilyasah is an Obama supporter. Doesn't mean her Father would be as enthusiastic. I wonder what her thoughts are now that Asaata is on the hitlist and her nephew got whacked.

    Does Obama have the power to help Asata? Or did he personally go out of his way to raise the bounty on her head? Are you ready to join the army that will storm Washington to force the fbi and the cia and all them other cats to let her alone? Because it going to take an army and even then they'll come back later and do it all over again.

    Not a problem sister river, I'll do the best I can to help you capture the interview. Here's the gist of what his daughter said during the interview:


    ...That her father (and mother) was a man of integrity and would have been shocked, as the rest of us, to have seen the first Black President elected here. She further stated that the Malcolm we knew in his late 20's had evolved over the 19 years leading to his death at 39 years of age. That they were two different evolution's....


    It would be interesting to hear what bro. oldsoul has to say, if given this information; perhaps you could share it with him and he could speak on it.



    Peace In the Spirit of Sankofa,

    Obama has the authority to grant her a presidential pardon but I doubt that since he refused Marcus Garvey.

    As far as your other questions are concerned, what army are you referring to?
