Who was the real Malcolm X? His parents were committed to Marcus Garvey’s black separatist movement. Since his early years he was linked to crime and drugs. While in prison he was converted to the Black Muslim movement and later became the sect’s most prominent spokesman. He once hailed a plane crash because it was filled with white people, he called white men “the devil,” and said JFK’s assassination was white America’s “chickens coming home to roost.” He also said that “What we need is the destruction of whiteness, which is the source of human misery in the world,” Dr. Martin Luther King would not appear on any public event beside him because of Malcolm’s racism. (Malcolm denounced Martin Luther King’s civil-rights march as “ridiculous.”) Neither did NAACP’s head Roy Wilkins and Urban League President Whitney Young.) Dr. King agreed to be photographed with him only when, in the last year of his life, Malcolm X renounced his racism. He was murdered by the Nation of Islam assassins; his death warrant was issued by Elijah Muhammad and publicly proclaimed by none other than (his lieutenant) Louis Farrakhan. (Malcolm had revealed that Elijah had raped and impregnated several adolescent girls.) NOTICE: Attempts to censor (“Report this”) my comments will be fiercely fought under the aegis of American Libraries’ beloved principles: Freedom of Speech, Freedom to Read, Intellectual Freedom.
