Malcolm x: the man, the myth and the race traitor


Provocative title isnt it.

I love malcolm x because he truly made white supremacy simple to understand.

I mean if you look at his youtube videos you will see that he explained an intricate social system so simply that a child could understand it.

He was fearless in his delivery and he didnt hesitate to tell the truth regardless of where it landed him.

He connected not only with national black leaders but with international afrikan leaders (particularly when he took a tour of major afrikan nations).

He had an international message that was directed at creating a pan afrikan political social economic system.

He rose from crime (drug dealing, stealing, burglarizing houses, drinking and druging) went to jail, learned the wisdom of the nation of islam through the teachings of the honorable elijah muhammad, and he turned his life around and a few years out of prison was lecturing at places like harvard, yale and oxford.

He was completely commited to the struggle.
Never cheated on his wife, never picked up drugs or alcohol after he heard muhammad teachings.

So with all these accolaids underneath his belt, why would i ever stoop so low in calling him a race traitor?

Because i believe he let his ego get too out of hand.

See malcolm x was a taurus.

And if there is one thing about a taurus i know is that they love love love attention (almost as much as a leo).

Another thing i know is if you cross them thats your ass.

They will get you back even if it requires hurting you, many close people around them and themselves.

He found out that a man who he thought of as a father, the honorable elijah muhamad, was sleeping with all of these different women, having children by them and not taking care of them so he told the news media of this man's improprieties, damaging the image of the nation to the world.

I call him a race traitor because he didnt care about the fact that this man basically took care of him from the moment he left the prison.

If it wasnt for muhammad, x would have never found knowledge of self and found out who the enemy was.

He wouldnt have met his wife and had his four kids.
He would have never been lecturing at harvard and yale.
The only reason you had a second chance at life is because this man took you under his wing and you basically spit in his face.

Im not saying muhammad wasnt wrong for siring children that he wasnt taking care of but x didnt look at the bigger picture.

Muhammad was providing employment for thousands of black men and women.
He was turning thousands of mens lives around who were in prison and making them whole again.

Because of this mans influence black people were starting to wake up and break themselves from the destructive forces of white supremacy.

And malcolm didnt think about all of these things before he put muhammads dirty laundry out.

People say the men who killed malcolm were in the fbi, the new york police or whatever.
>Maybe but if i was in that organization and this dude discredited my leader i would have wanted to killl him too.

X's life is a reminder to me that you have to fully consider the ramifications of your actions.

Now he tried to appoligize to muhammad right before he got killed, but the fbi and police infiltraitors in the group prevented the appology letters from getting to muhammad.

We have to analyze malcolm x's life and get the meat of the lessons the shining star taught us.

Are you freaking kidding me, James? Your reasoning is flawed, to say the least. I can't believe u!!!!!

Ummm yeah, this was interesting. I don't know how I feel about you calling Malcolm a traitor, that was a bit extreme.

I see where you could draw that conclusion, I just don't draw the same one when presented with the same facts.

just because he exposed Muhammad’s dirty secrets doesn’t make him a race traitor.

How can u help so many black men yet you cannot take care of your own children and wife’s? That’s hypocrisy! and we all know X had a thing for telling it like it is, no matter what...

would it have been wiser to keep his mouth shut, probably, however did speaking out against it make him a traitor? Absolutely not!

Hypocritical leader is not a strong base to build an 'afrikan political social economic system' !!

Malcolm did right. He tried to apologies many times, even face to face, but those Muslims sure do hold grudges...instead of admitting fault and finding a way to work it out, they declare war!

very egotistic, on both parts, i must say...

sting... calm down stingy lol

i know this is a serious accusation but i had to strip the emotion from it (which is difficult for you and i because we are both feeling signs (pisces and scorpio) we are compatible by the way too)

but i had to look at it from a logical perspective

see the white man keeps us divided through divide and conquer

they instigate an argument between us and they make it worse than what it really is so we can hurt each other and kill each other

so whenever we act in a way that helps divide us against each other more without considering this concept, in my opinion we are betraying our race

this is what malcolm was doing

of course the media (which is ran and operated by white men of course)instigated the conflict between the honorable elijah muhammad and malcolm

malcolm took the bate hook line and sinker

and malcolm at the end of his life KNEW he was wrong because he repeatedly tried to appologize repeatedly

but by that time the dammage had already been done

the white boys set him up and he may have just been a tool

however the end result was that he rated muhammad out and that created a rift in the nation that is yet to be filled

the end result is what im looking at

not how he got to it

love you stingy


@sunshine... that was a lot more tame than stingy up there lol

that was extreme

but like i told stingy im looking at what happened to the nation (one of the greatest organizations ever produced by afrikan amerikans, definately in the top 3) as a result of malcolm snitching on muhammad

there were almost 100,000 members in the nation at this time

businesses were flourishing, people were being saved from the ills of this wicked society

and when malcolm left the nation (or was forced to leave) that split the nation right in half and cause a real ugly scene

this is hard for women to understand sometimes

but somethings its best for women and children not know

i mean i think its just like having children in your house

there are many thing you dont discuss with them because having that knowledge could potentially harm them

i dont know if i am making any sense

i dont know if im even making sense to myself

but it sounded like something smart to say at the time


@eizzy... i have to come back for you because this is going to require a serious explanation lol

Sting said...

Hmmm..... so are u saying that Malcolm should have looked the other way while Elijah muhammed deceived millions of people. Did it occur to you that some people have scruples or that Malcolm behaved in exactly the way Elijah taught him to behave, as a man of honor and with principles.

That man deserved to be exposed. He was a liar, and a crook. Malcolm didn't get to see what Islam was really about until he left the nation. It saddened me to no end that unlike MLK, Malcolm was killed by his own people, all because of some teacher that was a dishonest person. The white man didn't have anything to do with this mess. Blame it all on Elijah!

I also think Malcolm might have reacted as strongly as he did because his illusions about his teacher were shattered beyond belief.

I don't agree with u, at all. Emotions or not!!!!! Where did u hear that Scorpios and Pisces are compatible? I don't know if scorpios are compatible with anyone, we tend to be too ornery.

James Tubman said...

@stingy... elijah muhammad had his faults but he didnt look at the big picture

he let his emotions get the best of him

but i just found some new information that said that malcolm x was offered 3 million dollars to turn on elijah muhammad and he turned it down just to stay loyal to him

so that has to be taken into consideration


@eizzy... i guess the egotism is typical of black men

it was an unfortunate situation

they let their emotions get the best of them

both of them

both of them were very human

this hsould teach future organizations that we cant let emotions get the best of us or we will cause harm to thosands of people and kill any chance we have at unity

MysTery said...

No disrespect, but I must say that I disagree homie.

All of this could have happened without Muhammad. Real Talk. The things that happened with Muhammad happened because of the dirty laundry that he had in his life that could be exposed. No one is perfect, but if you are in a place of power you know all that is hidden in darkness will come to light.

true

I'VE HEARD SO MANY MISINFORMED COMMENTS LIKE YOURS, THAT I NO LONGER GET ANNOYED. ACTUALLY, AT THIS POINT THEY'VE BECOME QUITE ENTERTAINING. TWO IMPORTANT THINGS THAT WERE LEFT OUT OF YOUR OPINION ON BROTHER MALCOLM X IS, FOR ONE, MALCOLM WAS PARTICIPATING IN HIS OWN EMOTIONAL, INTELLECTUAL, AND SPIRITUAL GROWTH. THAT MEANS, THE MAN WHO FIRST CAME UNDER THE TEACHINGS OF THE HONERABLE ELIJAH MUHAMMED, BECAME A DIFFERENT MAN TOWARD THE END OF HIS JOURNEY AS WE KNOW IT. SECONDLY AND MORE IMPORTANTLY, HE DISCOVERED THIS THING CALLED,"INTEGRITY" THAT TRANSCENDED, "MANS LAWS" WHICH IS WHY HE, AS YOU LIKE TO PUT IT, BECAME A TRAITOR.
MOST PEOPLE CANNOT FATHOM THE COURAGE THAT IT TOOK TO TAKE THE ETHICAL HIGH ROAD AGAINST A MAN WHOM HE LOVED SO MUCH, BECAUSE WE LIVE IN A SOCIETY OF, "SELL-OUTS" WHO WOULD'NT KNOW TRUE CHARACTER IF IT CAME UP AND STUCK ITS TOUGUE DOWN OUR THROATS.

A traitor isn't someone who tells the truth or exposes the truth. Also, Malcolm was killed not for what he knew. It was, because he put himself in a crossfire an didn't know it. Elijah Muhammad knew that with Malcolm leaving Atleast 70% of the Noi income would leave with him. Also, the Government of the united states an businesses an countries who rely on American labor or people would lose business as well. Since malcom was starting to learn economics an politics it was a matter of time before he discovered the truth about America. An expose it to all hence he had the knowledge of whites not being devils.
