Malcolm X Matters: Icon’s Words Still Ring True

Kirsten West Savali

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.
