( I can only speak from my own experience with such a phenomenon, I do not speak for all of the young people of black african descent all over the world, but only bring up a topic that has been on my mind for a while.) I had a convo the other day on civil rights and some of the participants of such. The people speaking were talking about Malcolm X especially, one claimed that Malcom was being deified by the youth of today and should not have beenand that malcolm was unsuccesful in what he wanted for us as people (i personally have not met one person who deified malcom)the other(me) was just calling him a fool for trying to compare Malcolm to any other civil rights leaders of that time since they were all different points on different arrows that all had one common target.I repeatedly asked him what was he looking for pertaining to Malcolm's greatness in a sense to challenge his own judgement and bias. He pointed out how Malcolm never led marchs,I told him that marchs make you look dependent in a sense to say even though it is a form of demonstrating peacefull disagreement. All of the things said led me to a question. Why is there constant argument over the "real leaders" and the "fake leaders" of today and yesterday? It is important to know who is on your side and who is not, but why is it that the so-called leaders of today have not met much support? Have they distanced themselves from my generation, or is my generation to tied up by music and entertainment to even notice their existence in a system of capitalist bias and greed?We are the future, but how can we (including my generation) guide our people and the rest of the world toward positivity if we keep arguing over who was the best or better at this and that in the past instead of taking their example and formulating a concept of our own that benefits us as a whole? I want to know what the elders on here think.
