It’s amazing how easily people can ignore his message and refuse to do it for themselves, to build everything beneath their feet for themselves and those close to them (or their community) but will actively seek to be given ground to stand on that was built by another. Such a path is not the way to freedom, it is the way to obedience, to be given just enough that you are content within the misery around you. I wonder if it will remain the same in thirty more years?
There is a reason why the textbook in American schools don’t extol Malcolm X , they knew his influence will revolutionize and motivate the black youth that are looking for black role models. MLK’s main focus was the right to vote and integration. Obviously integration has not worked for us nor will it work. Once people see that you are not similar to them they treat you different. Racism will always exist. It is time we find ways to fend for ourselves. Appreciate and miss you Malcolm . May your soul rest in peace and your words forever resonate through the minds of any soul that need encouragement.
