This is what President-Elect Barack Obama said about Malcolm X in his best-selling autobiography, via David Remnick:
In every page of every book, in Bigger Thomas and invisible men, I kept finding the same anguish, the same doubt; a self-contempt that neither irony nor intellect seemed able to deflect. Even Du Bois learning and Baldwins love and Langstons humor eventually succumbed to its corrosive force, each man finally forced to doubt arts redemptive power, each man finally forced to withdraw, one to Africa, one to Europe, one deeper into the bowels of Harlem, but all of them in the same weary flight, all of them exhausted, bitter men, the devil at their heels. Only Malcolm Xs autobiography seemed to offer something different. His repeated acts of self-creation spoke to me.
By Obama's own admission, Malcolm X was one of the biggest influences in his intellectual and cultural development.

Wow. The nose and mouth.
goes waaay back, start with this piece of research and read forward:
Po fok is still Po fok.
I don't think even the KKK went THIS far! Yowzerz!
Good God, man....my ancestors RIP would be up in arms...literally
Yikes....his mom must havwe been a VERY LOOSE WOMEN.
Someone should get a photo of 0bama Sr, Ann, and do the computer mix and see what it looks like. Probably a lot less like BHO than the Malcolm X/Ann mix.
Never knew X had a white grandaddy. Barry has a white grandaddy too. Both appear to have some inferiority complex and uncomfortable in their identity - like they’re changing or searching to fit in
Malcolm X was one of the biggest influences in Obama’s intellectual and cultural development.
Now the unemployment rate will double for the 2-3 ethnic groups that voted for Hussein II
I am just waiting with sensitive replies to hear a liberal complain about their 401K tanking bigtime!
He doesn’t have ANY features of Obama Sr. nonething.
Heh, I forgot the sarcasm tag in my post!!
The birthers think he is Obama’s real father..
Before the election my liberal NYC sister said she did not like any of the 3 most likely candidates for President (a big surprise to me)
And 20% of Conservatives went for Hussein II?
“And 20% of Conservatives went for Hussein II?”
Taught those RINOS a lessson, huh?
I know - there is no resemblance whatsoever. It would be interesting just for the record though.
they are bother angry over the cracker in the woodpile
I remember you telling me that and it was surprising.
I sheer naive stupidity and blantant ignorance of so many in both parties is incredible
Even my liberal NYC sister saw that Hussein II, Hillary, or McCain would be a train wreck
She is 100% against illegal aliens for starters - and could not believe zero down payment sub-prime mortgages for unqualified minorities were being forced upon the banks by politicians buying votes
When people start admitting they are paying for millions of losers in a never-ending scam - them sometimes start to reexamine their political beliefs
Getting whacked in her 401K was also a slight hint that something was going Socialist and worse -
Looks like the apple did fall far from the tree.
