Tuesday, February 21, 2006A legend among men...
Today is the 41st anniversary of the assassination of Malcolm X. He was one of our finest. It is unfortunate that he is not talked about as much as MLK. He is the epitome of what I consider greatness. I respect him more than any other person that ever lived.
Young Malcolm X, born Malcolm Little on May 19, 1925, Omaha, Nebraska.
This young Malcolm looks exactly like someone I dated in high school.
Malcolm was assasinated at Manhattan's Audubon Ballroom on February 21, 1965. He had just taken the stage when he was shot. Malcolm X was 39 years old.
This society has the blood of many of our courageous leaders on their hands. According to Democracy Now, there are three missing chapters from the autobiographies of Malcolm X as told by Alex Haley and Spike Lee. In those missing chapters, the New York Police, the FBI, and possibly the CIA were involved in Malcolm X's assassination. However, this is something that we always suspected.
Why is it that good and progressive black people are killed by this society in the prime of their life? We have been going through changes with this society for a long time.
Two of my favorite quotes:
1. You're not to be so blind with patriotism that you can't face reality. Wrong is wrong, no matter who does it or says it.
2. Concerning nonviolence: It is criminal to teach a man not to defend himself, when he is the constant victim of brutal attacks.
