REMEMBER MALCOLM X

http://www.youtube.com/wa...

A man who stands for nothing will fall for anything.

Be peaceful, be courteous, obey the law, respect everyone;
but if someone puts his hand on you,
send him to the cemetery

I don't even call it violence when it's in self defense;
I call it intelligence.

Nobody can give you freedom.
Nobody can give you equality or justice
or anything. If you're a man, you take it.

Education is the passport to the future, for tomorrow belongs to those who prepare for it today

Very good...If only he was still alive today...

Yep early in his life he was

Yep early in his life he was a little extreme but that was because he was young and learning, and he wasnt exactly expressing his views but actually the teachings of elijah muhammad. Then later in life after he became wiser he started to speak of his own views entirely and thats when he was really good.

Murray Rothbard admired Malcolm

check out Murray's essay called "Their Malcolm and Mine"
this is the link.

I was raised all of my life to believe..

...that malcom X and mlk were racist bigots (like kkk) type of people. and was taught not to give them anytime at all. this is the first time of actually watching any speeches of X's. Did he start speeching down to other races later on in life? I honestly know nothing of this man other than being an icon for several people.

P.S. i saw this vid off of Phadeus' reddit posts first. :P

watch

"Malcom X" the movie. This should clear all confusion, and it's a great movie, too!

And MLK. MLK was so far away from being a bigot or racist, it's not even funny. There's a reason MLK is one of RP's heroes.

He was actually a little crazy earlier in his life.

Nation of Islam, white people are devils, etc.

After he left Nation of Islam, however, he was no longer constrained by their ideals and became focused entirely on human rights (he believed civil rights to be too narrow because the pertained only domestically). He stated that they should be obtained by any means necessary, up to and including violence.

You've touched on an interesting point that I am intensely curious about. You said you were raised to think Malcolm X and Mlk were racist bigots. If you don't mind answering, where were you raised? Who did you get that impression from? Did independent research in your area confirm your impression (i.e., if you looked it up at the library did you get the same information or something like that)?

CHA-CHING!

I remember seeing on Youtube about

in his early years he thought all white people were bad but later I think he realized that is not the case that all races have people who are good and bad. It has been awhile since I saw that and just remember thinking wish I had not let the media tell me what to think.

"We can see with our eyes, hear with our ears and feel with our touch, but we understand with our hearts."

We got some hive mind going on here. Look at the time

of our posts.

CHA-CHING!

Ha,Ha

Great minds think alike. I like your reply better than mine. Wish my mind could hang onto information longer than a New York minute.

This man was not heeded in his time.

Instead of opposing Establishment power, most people tried to channel it for special interests.
Malcolm was right. We have a new chance, let's get it right this time.

I was told for years how terrible

Malcolm X was, then I did my own research it seems the CIA and FBI used the same smear tactics on him as they are doing to the Ron Paul supporters and the teaparty people.

Thanks, for sharing these words of wisdom with us.
