    What is it that he did that brings out the hatred of white people so?

    He didn't kill anyone, he didn't steal from anyone, he didn't commit any crimes, in his life that he's known for as a Minister and thought-leader of his time.

    All he did was speak the raw, unadulterated and unfiltered truth about the state of affairs in this country.

    I suppose that's why so many whites couldn't stand him.

    The truth shouldn't be an offense.

    Here's an interesting debate between Brother Minister Malcolm X and, another thought leader, James Baldwin...



    It features the core of Malcolm's beliefs.

    I challenge anyone to point out what's wrong w/anything he said.

    Brother Malcolm understood the fear, flight, fight response. He understood that if Blacks posed a threat to whites they would no longer feel they could just beat us down. Whites would have to take some casualties. Once that dynamic was introduced whites were never the same. Whites have an especially strong reaction to fear. It freezes them Whites hate Malcolm for bringing this mentality and bringing an end to passive resistance.

    I didn't like him because he was a hateful, antisemitic piece of shit.

    As a black man, you embrace his ethic hatred because you never actually learned the lesson of racism.

    all you have done is replicate it with different targets.

    Most white people, far from hating Malcolm X, would more likely say, Malcolm who? Aside from him proclaiming Obama to be the Messiah, most don't really care who he is.

    Tell that to the clowns that want to see professors fired and students expelled from college for not accommodating ridiculous gender pronouns.

    Tell that to the people that won't admit that poor Mexicans are not currently a benefit to our economy.
