Not gonna lie, I identify a hell of a lot more with Malcolm X than I do with MLK. And I think of lot of other people do too, it’s just not popular to say it.

I beg to differ. It has long been popular to identify with Malcolm X over . We see results in society normalization of hate and violence. R.E.A.L.’s mission in is to offer a whisper of & amongst the storm. Outstretched hand, not upraised fist.

I don’t Malcolm X as a outstretched fist but I hear you. I see him very differently.

Story of my life. In retrospect, I gotta say I think Malcolm was in his way to going MLK. Wish the so called NOI hadn’t ended that process. Cannot tell you how many formers I know that were influenced by the autobiography.

Agreed, and we’ll never know what could have been. Same — I saw a lot of my own story and a shared spirit.

I argued in my dissertation that for MLK to achieve his civil rights victories MX had to exist. His extremist views could not be allowed to be embraced MLK was not only the safer option but could be somewhat appeased/negotiate. MX gave voice to 100s yrs of anger = psble civil war

WHICH Malcolm X. The "Nation of Islam" acolyte of Elijah Mohammed or the post conversion to mainstream Islam, Malcolm. Those are 2 VERY different versions of the man.
