Malcolm X had pretty conservative ideas. Compared to MLK he was the superior man. He believed in economic self sufficiency. He didn’t believe in government hand outs. He left the kooks at the Nation of Islam. He was a loyal family man unlike MLK. He may look like Obama physically but that’s about it.

You have absolutely no idea of what you are talking about...
THIS WAS MALCOLMX!
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.
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.
Have to agree with you, read his autobiog. in the 1980’s..He changed alot... I think the book was Soul On Ice. not sure, getting on in years you know and I was in college as a mother of 5 at the time..
Alex Haley’s “The Autobiography of Malcom X” is definitely a piece of PR spin, and not to be completely trusted.
I will say, though, that Malcom was smarter than O, and a far better speaker.
He may have been moderating his views towards the end of his life, but part of that was his split from the Nation of Islam and their complete insanity. Who knows? At least he didn’t end up a huckster and parody of himself like Jackson and Sharpton.
I mean this with all respect, but you truly need to do some research and read the stuff Malcolm X preached. You are seriously misinformed if you really believe what you wrote.
