    I hate conspiracy theories but the way I see it, Malcolm X became a thorn in the NOI's & FBIs neck. He was getting too popular so they had him killed. One of the guys who killed Malcolm even got promoted in the nation of Islam and now runs a mosque in NYC. How many people you know in the U.S. commit first degree murder on a celebrity and then go free about 20 years later? Yeah no I think many people had a lot to gain from killing Malcolm X. Starting with the Nation of Islam and the FBI who preferred Kings more......white friendly....rhetoric.
    I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality. - MLK

    I don't know man, you know allot more about it than I do.

    I am not going to speculate as I just don't know enough about the murder plot outside of the movie.

    Terrorists are not good people.

    He might have been great for the country, if he wasnt assacinated. He was coming around to the fact that he couldnt create a all Black nation, he realised he would have to lead his people to a common land with the White majority. He was a strong, and respectable role model, but with him and King dead, and the rempant prolifiration of drugs in the community, the black quest toward fully breaking the bonds that held them have been delayed. Not even the election of Obama is really enough at this stage, the community needs more role models, it needs to find its self respect.
    I suggest they look towards Alexander Graham Bell, Thomas Edison, Andrew Carnegie, Rockefeller, Steve Jobs, Bill Gates, Warren Buffet, and anyone else who made their mark on their own two feet without begging handouts from the government.

    Barracks Obama isn't suitable.

    Please point out a terrorist bombing or any other terrorist plot he was involved in?

    He founded the Black Panthers, did he not?

    He co-founded the Nation of Islam, did he not?

    I don't believe it was necessary for you to quote my post, then inform me that's what I said.

    You could have assumed I'm aware of what I said.

    Holy ****.....where did you go to school? A barn? Because that is the only place I'd see that level of absurdity.

    [ame]http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Black_Panther_Party[/ame]

    In 1966, Huey P. Newton was released from jail. With his friend Bobby Seale from Oakland City College, he joined a black power group called the Revolutionary Action Movement (RAM). RAM had a chapter in Oakland and followed the writings of Robert F. Williams. Williams had been the president of the Monroe, North Carolina branch of the NAACP and later published a newsletter called The Crusader from China, where he fled to escape kidnapping charges.
    Nope. No Malcolm X there....1966....Malcolm was dead by 65.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nation_of_Islam#History

    The original Nation of Islam was founded in Detroit, Michigan in July, 1930 by Wallace Fard Muhammad, also known as W. D. Fard Muhammad (1877-1934 or later). The N.O.I. teaches that W. Fard Muhammad is both the "Messiah" of Christianity and the Mahdi of Islam. According to their website, they distinguish themselves from followers of the original religion of Islam by stating: 12. WE BELIEVE that Allah (God) appeared in the Person of Master W. Fard Muhammad, July, 1930; the long-awaited "Messiah" of the Christians and the "Mahdi" of the Muslims[6] One of Fard's first disciples was Elijah Muhammad (1897-1975), who led the organization from 1935 through 1975.

    Malcolm X was 4 at the time. Nope. You have completely failed history. Case closed.

    Hatuey pretty much schooled you on his history, so my work here is done.

    Next time you should research before spouting false information.
