    Malcolm X and the Nation of Islam, like the Black Panthers and other black groups of that decade scared the shit out of white middle America. When Malcolm was murdered, white society breathed a sigh of relief and gloated in the fact he was killed by members of the Nation of Islam. Problem solved was the accepted reaction, and us whitey's are absolved of the blame.

    A true nationalist and supporter of an ethno-state for black people only.

    He also warned his black race about the evil of the Democrats. Fact. So do the right thing and run away from that liberal shit.

    An earlier version of this post incorrectly stated that it was Malcolm X's birthday.

    He wasn't controversial. That's the narrative mainstream news used when they wanted to shut up the civil rights movement.
