Muslims have destroyed freedom and culture in many countries, and are responsible for history's greatest genocide. Don't be naive.
And it was the NOI who killed Malcolm, though they did it in collaboration with FBI-COINTELPRO.
Islam is filth.

Malcolm X only spouted only a bunch of rhetoric aimed a poor ignorant blacks. He never brought his behind South where we had to endure dogs, fire hoses, and brutality. I should know because I was involved in the protesting.

BTW, Rosa Parks wasn't the first in Montgomery,

" Few people know the story of Claudette Colvin: When she was 15, she refused to move to the back of the bus and give up her seat to a white person — nine months before Rosa Parks did the very same thing.

Most people know about Parks and the Montgomery, Ala., bus boycott that began in 1955, but few know that there were a number of women who refused to give up their seats on the same bus system. Most of the women were quietly fined, and no one heard much more. "

Isn't it interesting that Martin Luther Kings group practiced peaceful solutions as they believed in the Christian Faith and Malcolm spoke a lot about hate and segragation with his Muslim faith.
This shows ignorance on a number of levels. Firstly who and what malcolm x stood for changed with the change in his religion. He went from a rogue alien racist group (the nation of Islam) to a mainstream religion (Islam). He is wrongly remembered for the parroted spokesperson he was for the NOI and not as the Muslim he became.
In his latter life he was happy to work with white America. However said before that can happen we need black solidarity, because as a people you can't unite with others if you are unable to unite yourselves
