Malcolm X Matters: Icon’s Words Still Ring True


Malcolm X Matters: Icon’s Words Still Ring True

Kirsten West Savali

s the #BlackLivesMatter movement continues to grow in strength like the perfect storm, the prescient words of Malcolm X (El-Hajj Malik El-Shabazz) slice with laser-sharp precision through the rhetoric of politicians and pundits alike as if he still walked among us.


Interesting article, Ms. Savali (I’ll have to watch the videos tomorrow)…

But how do you reconcile your closing statement with the Obama/phenomenon?

"As it is right now, most of the Negro leaders sell out to the white politicians for crumbs, and a political awakening among Negroes will make it impossible for the present Negro leaders to sell our people out as they’ve been doing in the past.”


LOL, Malcolm X would have called Obama the same as what Dr Cornell West has…plain and simple.
