Malcolm X knew what the President knows decades ago and the Dems murdered him to suppress the truth.

In this election the President will receive the highest % of black and Hispanic votes of any republican in 100 years. Malcolm X was right. The blacks know it. We all know it. The Dems lie about it and seem to believe screwing the blacks and getting the votes of blacks is their right. We’ve heard Mrs Clinton say it on the way to losing and we’ve heard pre losing Biden say it.

Looks to me like you just did sir 🤙🏼 [@327405,theOnebianyouwerewarnedabout]
Wow. New low even for you and the only thing to support you conspiracy theory is an out of context quote. Nice.

You just don’t like and can’t deal with truth or facts. You’ve earned a policy 11

Mmhmmm. There's no context or history here or anything.

Jesus ya'll are dumb.

This is as far off the mark as you can possibly get.

🤔 but he didnt promote voting for Republicans either, so it could have been Republicans, he was anti-white and encouraged blacks to fight for their rights, use any means necessary. Seems that leaves the door wide open on his murder.
[@854658,SamtheDog] I would not call Malcolm X anti white but he knew who his enemy was and that was the pretty much lily white ruling class. If anything he was sympathetic to Maoism which makes it hilarious that Jack would pick this hill to die on.

[@346344,PicturesOfABetterTomorrow] let me rephrase that, anti black support for predominately white political parties.

And a Muslim, theres a religious influence not congruent with white America too 🤷‍♂️

Throughout 1964, as his conflict with the Nation of Islam intensified, Malcolm X was repeatedly threatened.[171]

In February, a leader of Temple Number Seven ordered the bombing of Malcolm X's car.[172] In March, Muhammad told Boston minister Louis X (later known as Louis Farrakhan) that "hypocrites like Malcolm should have their heads cut off";[173] the April 10 edition of Muhammad Speaks featured a cartoon depicting Malcolm X's bouncing, severed head.[174][175]

On June 8, FBI surveillance recorded a telephone call in which Betty Shabazz was told that her husband was "as good as dead."[176] Four days later, an FBI informant received a tip that "Malcolm X is going to be bumped off."[177] That same month, the Nation sued to reclaim Malcolm X's residence in East Elmhurst, Queens, New York. His family was ordered to vacate[178] but on February 14, 1965‍—‌the night before a hearing on postponing the eviction‍—‌the house was destroyed by fire.[179]

On July 9, Muhammad aide John Ali (suspected of being an undercover FBI agent)[180] referred to Malcolm X by saying, "Anyone who opposes the Honorable Elijah Muhammad puts their life in jeopardy."[181] In the December 4 issue of Muhammad Speaks, Louis X wrote that "such a man as Malcolm is worthy of death."[182] -https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Malcolm_X#Death_threats_and_intimidation_from_Nation_of_Islam

Read King’s letter from inside Birmingham Jail; 55 years ago. You think that is was written just yesterday.

You need to know that a mans faith does not depend on his political party nor the church he may or may not attend. Grouping democrats or Republics into an enemy of blacks is like grouping blacks as an enemy of America. It’s preposterous to judge all people by a group label. People are people. They are born and bred by their families. Love people worthy of being loved around you. Stand up to those who act racisit - but don’t assume every person in any one group is racisit. Even if that’s how Malcom felt.
Briggett · T
[@8567,Mindful] Fredrick Douglass also said of the same thing that Malcolm said, but from similar point of view and King as well

When I first heard Malcolm X say what he says at 1:00 into the video decades back, at first I was a bit surprised because it went against all that was prevalent and a default position for the Democrats at that time. But when you listen to what he actually meant it does seem to make some sense. Build yourself up from the bootstraps, depend on yourself and not become addicted to dependency on others for you, your family and your community. Edify yourself with dignity, honor and self respect.

Aside from the possibly incendiary title, what Malcolm X actually meant in some ways mirrors how this country declared independence and separated from Britain itself.

[youtube=https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xzz7R7Ro4x8]

"The Honorable Elijah Muhammad, our religious leader, teaches us the importance of doing something for ourselves now, rather than trying to continue to force ourselves into the white community or upon the white man. He teaches us that if we would do something for ourselves, clean up ourselves, morally, intellectually and otherwise, and then try and do something for ourselves economically, we would be recognized and accepted by others.

But as long as we try and force ourselves in upon others now, without having done nothing to prove that we are — are on any kind of equal basis with them, that there will always be this race tension and race problem.

If a white man puts his arm around me voluntarily, that's brotherhood. But if you — if you hold a gun on him and make him embrace me and [i]pretend [/i]to be friendly or brotherly toward me, then that's not brotherhood, that's hypocrisy. And what America is trying to do is pass laws to force whites to [i]pretend [/i]that they want Negroes into their schools or into — in their places of employment.

Well, this is hypocrisy, and this makes a worse relationship between black and white, the black man himself should learn how to develop himself in the same sense that the white man has developed himself. Then they can both come together and recognize each other as equals."

15 Black votes and 23 Hispanic votes. Wow, big deal
Sounds like you write Trump's fantasies for him.
