I am not trying to open a can of wroms but, I am trying to envoke thought. I enjoy debates where research is involved to make an educated statement. I like reading others thoughts on people and history. Sometimes it even helps me form a better or more educated opinion.

That being said.....

Thoughts on Malcolm X? Racist? Radical? Extreme? Human Rights Advocate?

What do you all think?

I red Black Like Me and Malcolm X when I was in 7th grade.... I also read the Jim Crow laws. All of these books showed how Malcolm and others like him had the best intentions but were sucked in by groups fighting hate and intolerance with more hate and intolerance. I am drawn to the time period though, that is the era my parents grew up in and I think it helps me to see why they feel the way they do.

Cathy, That was very enlightening. I did not know much about his life outside of the hate and racism that he taught. I am going to read more. Thanks.

'Racism' a thought I never absorbed or understood. When I meet people with that concept in their mind I wonder , for me all races are the same , I never see people different and I could never understand how any one can see himself different from other people
