Malcolm X has became a symbol of freedom and struggle for liberty. His ideals are far more honorable and respected throughout the world than the pitiful whinings of that crying helpless fagg*t called Martin Luther King Jr.

White devils only respect the force. It's force what they ought to receive.Violence is the only path for true freedom of our people.

Martin Luther King was actually the most influential because many PPL agree with equality in a diverse society and still do. The problem is equality doesn't exist when it comes to distributing wealth, it mostly exist with laws. This is why gays believe their struggle is the same as blacks even tho gay whites do not suffer economic injustice especially if they are in the closet. They will share the same privilege for being white just for pretending to be straight.

Mlk was the most influential that is why AAs are in this predicament today. Besides being against integration, Malcolm X wanted 2 states for AAs, for a separate nation. But Mlk was preaching some bullsht crackpipe dream about having black children hold hands with the devils' spawns...He realized his mistake a little too late.

All Malcolm ever did was to rant and rave in NYC. Never once did he travel down South and demand equal treatment!

In spite of all the ranting and raving of who was the best so-called "leader", Booker T. Washington IMHO, tops them all!

His lesson is still good today.

Voting Rights is OK, but having a financial system in place tops politics.

WITHOUT ECONOMIC POWER, THERE CAN BE NO POLITICAL POWER!

Six million Jews in the USA, yet they control the Congress, and gets Israel everything it wants.

Good example.

Malcolm X couldn't give a fk about wanting equal treatment from whites. He wanted separation. He wanted black people to be independent and self-reliant form whites, that is why he wanted two states for AAs for a separate black nation.

Let's look at the facts,THERE WILL NEVER BE A SEPARATE COUNTRY WITHIN THE CONFINES OF THE USA!

What would be the benefit of having a separate country?

Who would yuu have to support you for the following:

Interstate commerce

The banking system

The highway system

The health system

The food supply system

The employment system

The manufacturing system

The criminal justice system

Malcolm was dreaming, and it wasn't a "wet dream"!

Negroes need to accept REALITY!

Talk is cheap

Ahhhhh, to be young ,gifted, and idealistic..........

Next whine..........

First of all, black separatism has to make it's return in full force. My people have become complacent and let their guards down under the illusion of "equality".
We have a stake right here, and we begin to carve out our nation little by little, then we simply secede. Of course, this will take decades and might not happen during my lifetime, but it is the best course of action for blacks and whites.

You dunno what the % the Black population will be in a hundred years. You are NOT a prophet. And PPL thought the world was going to end during their era and here we are.

One only has to look at the level of race mixing to know that whites and blacks will be a tiny minority in the US ,within the next 100 years.

In terms of black leadership Frederick Douglass, Booker T. Washington, and Martin Luther King Jr. are historically the most influential.

Some ignorantly talk sh*t about MLK and call him an Uncle Tom, while elevating Malcolm to messianic status. But Martin did far more for blacks than Malcolm. If you doubt this just name one piece of legislation achieved through the effort of Malcolm X. Malcolm was nothing more than tough talk, speeches, and ideas that he NEVER put into practice. King was the total package, he gave great speeches, held protest, marches, boycotts, and sit-ins in an effort to make America lived up to it's ideals of freedom and equality for all.

Stokely Carmichael rightfully called the white American "a beast without a conscience". You don't tell a group of people who are facing such a beast to adopt a non-violent stance and turn the other cheek while they're getting trampled. Even Nelson Mandela knew the only language they understood is violence, hence is founding of the armed wing of the ANC..
I wouldn't call MLK an uncle tom, though.. He did give a lot for black people and towards the end of his life, he began to see the light.
