Posted on 09/27/2006 5:49:10 PM PDT by ConservativeJen
Malcolm X was born 80 years ago today, on 19 May 1925. But amid the commemorations, controversy is brewing. Some black activists are enraged by suggestions that their hero might have been gay - or at least bisexual. The controversy has been stirring since the publication of Bruce Perry's acclaimed biography, Malcolm: The Life of a Man Who Changed Black America (Station Hill, New York) in 1991. Based on interviews with Malcolm's closest boyhood and adult friends, Perry suggests that the US black nationalist leader was not as robustly heterosexual as his Nation of Islam (NoI) colleagues have always insisted.
As for his sporadic gay hustling, as Perry notes, "there were other ways he could have earned money". Dope-dealing, thieving and pimping were sources of income he had pursued with success. There was no imperative to sell his body. Why, then, did he prostitute himself? Misogyny and repressed homosexuality might be the answer. According to Perry: "His male-to-male encounters, which rendered it unnecessary for him to compete for women, afforded him an opportunity for sexual release without the attendant risk of dependence on women."
Now it is time to blow the whistle. There is not a single world-famous black person who is openly gay. Young black lesbians and gays need role models. Who better than Malcolm X, one of the inspirations of my activism and one of the great modern heroes of black liberation?

Malcolm X on the "down low?" OMGSTFULOL
I don't want to know, it has nothing to do with anything that's remotely our business.
He was worthless then, and he is worthless now.
I wonder if he played any "finger games" with Michael Weiner.
We've got no gay role models, so let's just lie.
Malcom XXX !
Wow. This story is so breaking....
(Do you know it over a year old?)
Please explain why you posted this article from Thursday May 19, 2005 in breaking news.
"Wow. This story is so breaking.... "
I never heard it, this is a story that needs to get out.
Malcolm X is one the monsters of the left that has reached hero status.
The revelation that the most famous black militant, anti white hero of the anti-American left is a homo is a big deal.
I remember asking some of them if they new the name he was born with. Nope, not a clue, but they did know that he hated the White man, and that was all that counted to them.
He was born Malcolm Little and was killed by the Nation of Islam because he disavowed them and exposed the hypocracy of "The Honorable Elisia Mohamed".
Let me guess -- Bruce Perry is a fag. Queers spend much of their time insisting that almost any famous figure was queer.
The Guardian is nothing more than an anti-American tabloid. There's a good reason you never heard of this before, it's unlikely that it's true.
At a Country Music concert near here a few years back, I remember seeing a tee-shirt with the Confederate flag and the slogan,"You wear your X and I'll wear mine."
Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger is a Nazi.
ACLU founder Roger Baldwin is a Communist.
Interesting? Yes. Breaking News? No.
"Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger is a Nazi."
I missed that one too, who proved that?
because someone sent me the link on AIM and I didn't see the date
So Margaret Sanger was NOT a Nazi.
She may not have been a Nazi per se, but she was definitely into eugenics which is just as bad.
We all know that she was into eugenics (which isn't just as bad as Nazism), but the claim had been made that she was a Nazi.
If someone could make that connection convincingly it would blow the lid off of Planned Parenthood.
In his efforts to mock a story being posted about Malcolm X being homosexual, Mr Brightside went a bridge too far.
She didn't join the party, or she didn't subscribe to the principles of Naziism?
Here is just ONE example...
- She hired Ernst Rubin, a Nazi eugenicist, to write articles in her publications. Here is information from just one link on the Google search. (Did you even read any of the articles?)
This is a conservative web site, we know all that, you made a mistake claiming that Sanger was a Nazi.
No big deal simply admit the mistake and move on.
Her you go...
I should have never inferred that Margret Sanger ever paid dues and recieved a membership card to the Hitler's National Socialst Party.
If you want to defend her as a champion of Birth Control, go ahead.
(Do you think that one needs to belong to the Communist Party to be a communist?)
"Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger is a Nazi.
ACLU founder Roger Baldwin is a Communist.
Interesting? Yes. Breaking News? No."
So, are you defending her?
Sounds like I struck a nerve.
I had heard long ago that 'The Honorable Elisia Mohamed' was a big time bone smoker.
Maybe he and X had a lover's spat.
"So, are you defending her?
Sounds like I struck a nerve."
Your approach to correcting a mistake you made on this thread is bizarre.
Normally I wouldn't respond, but in this case I found your attempts to twist your anger into a personal attack on me especially amusing.
Just two hours ago a minister and pro-life activist stopped here at my house, to tell me how much he is enjoying the copy of Norma Corvey's autobiography I lent him Tuesday.
LoL. You know he was an excellant dancer prior to becoming a nutcase.
So was Theodore Roosevelt. Eugenics has a bad smell to us now, but back in the day, many people supported it.
I think Paul Winfield was gay. He was out, but not making a big point of it.
I don't think it is any more bizarre to consider Margret Sanger a Nazi than it is to say that Ted Kennedy is a Socialist.
Thanks hennie pennie.
time article 1965.
Malcolm X had been a pimp, a cocaine addict and a thief. He was an unashamed demagogue. His gospel was hatred: “Your little babies will get polio!” he cried to the “white devils.” His creed was violence: “If ballots won’t work, bullets will.”
Yet even before his bullet-ripped body went to its grave, Malcolm X was being sanctified. Negro leaders called him “brilliant,” said he had recently “moderated” his views, blamed his assassination on “the white power structure” or, in the case of Martin Luther King, on a “society sick enough to express dissent with murder.” Malcolm’s death, they agreed, was a setback to the civil rights movement.
Alias John Doe. In fact, Malcolm X in life and in deathwas a disaster to the civil rights movement.
AMERICA NEEDS A MAU MAU
“...I have to take time to mention that because, in my opinion, not only in Mississippi and Alabama, but right here in New York City, you and I can best learn how to get real freedom by studying how Kenyatta brought it to his people in Kenya, and how Odinga helped him, and the excellent job that was done by the Mau Mau freedom fighters. In fact, that’s what we need in Mississippi. In Mississippi we need a Mau Mau. In Alabama we need a Mau Mau. In Georgia we need a Mau Mau. Right here in Harlem, in New York City, we need a Mau Mau.
(YOU DON’T KNOW THE HALF OF IT, MORE’S THE PITY!)
MALCOLM X MEETS COMMUNISTS IN CAIRO:
How prescient. We got one.
It’s 2009 and the guy in the second photo is figuring to win a gunfight with a revolver (and dressed like THAT)? Thank God for the stupidity of the enemy.
Have you, by chance read any of the long postings made in the summer of 2008, primarily, about the distinct possibily that Stanley Ann Dunham met Malcolm X in Seattle and that he might be the father of her son?
