Malcolm X (born Malcolm Little; May 19, 1925 – February 21, 1965), also known as El-Hajj Malik El-Shabazz.
For other uses, see Malcolm X ."Malik Shabazz" redirects here. For other persons of that name, see Malik Shabazz.

He was an African American Muslim minister, public speaker, and human rights activist. To his admirers, he was a courageous advocate for the rights of African Americans, a man who indicted white America in the harshest terms for its crimes against black Americans.His detractors accused him of preaching racism and violence.He has been described as one of the greatest and most influential African Americans in history.

Malcolm X was born in Omaha, Nebraska. By the time he was 13, his father had died and his mother had been committed to a mental hospital. His childhood, including his father's lessons concerning black pride and self-reliance and his own experiences concerning race, played a significant role in Malcolm X's adult life. After living in a series of foster homes, Malcolm X became involved in the criminal underworld in Boston and New York. In 1945, Malcolm X was sentenced to eight to ten years in prison.

While in prison, Malcolm X became a member of the Nation of Islam. After his parole in 1952, he became one of the Nation's leaders and chief spokesmen. For nearly a dozen years, he was the public face of the Nation of Islam. Tension between Malcolm X and Elijah Muhammad, head of the Nation of Islam, led to Malcom X's departure from the organization in March 1964.

After leaving the Nation of Islam, Malcolm X became a Sunni Muslim and made a pilgrimage to Mecca. He traveled extensively throughout Africa and the Middle East. He founded Muslim Mosque, Inc., a religious organization, and the secular, black nationalist Organization of Afro-American Unity. Less than a year after he left the Nation of Islam, Malcolm X was assassinated while giving a speech in New York.

You're seeing things from one side only. This is complicated. The video where Farrakhan call Malcolm a traitor did upset me, but he doesn't say the Nation murdered Malcolm. If you want a responsible, you got all of those who didnt follow Malcolm's teachings. Betty Shabbaz talked with the Minister. When Malcolm's daughte was set up by the FBI cause she would have tried to pay one of her former friends to murder The Minister, Dr. Betty Shabbaz raised funds, and the Minister helped, he was invited to the gathering to show support to Malcolm's daughter.
Malcolm X was one of the greatest man to put his foot on earth, he will always be respected, and everything will be done so that as many as possible hear his word.

The fact that some NOI members were involved doesn't make the NOI guilty. There a lot of idiots who just want to belong, and are ready to murder if they think somebody's going to respect them for it.
Farrakhan said that Malcolm X was worthy of death, he said he was a traitor, he said all of this non-sense. And a lot of people inside and outside the NOI believed this same non-sense.
The FBI wanted Malcolm X dead, the white power wanted Malcolm dead.
It is false to say "the NOI killed Malcolm". By his words, the Minister participated in that murder. However the movement known as the Nation of Islam is not more guilty than everybody who ignored Malcolm's word, who called him and still call him a racist, a hate preacher. They are just as responsible for his death.

why ?

Malcolm did get in front of the cameras and go along with the program of defaming Elijah, his teacher and the one responsible for saving his life - the one that taught him all he knew

but he doesn't say the Nation murdered Malcolm.

saying that the Nation of Islam Killed Malcolm is just like saying that White People oppressed Black People

how many white people want to take responsibility for that ?


If you want a responsible, you got all of those who didnt follow Malcolm's teachings.


Those were not Malcolms Teachings - Malcolm was instructed on what to teach and was taught how to teach by his teacher - The teachings that Malcolm received from his teacher are what made the world pay attention to Malcolm - there were many many other Ministers in the Nation when Malcolm was in the Nation

Betty Shabbaz talked with the Minister. When Malcolm's daughte was set up by the FBI cause she would have tried to pay one of her former friends to murder The Minister, Dr. Betty Shabbaz raised funds, and the Minister helped, he was invited to the gathering to show support to Malcolm's daughter.

people have allot of good things to say about Malcolm now that he's gone
what made him great was the teachings he received - when he threw the teachings and training away, he got killed - its that simple - white america made Malcolm a hero for black people after he was killed - they did this because he was able to be manipulated into denoucing his teacher

Malcolm was never a traitor. White america didn't made him a hero, it made him a traitor. Malcolm was the BPP's hero, thats not what white america wanted.
Malcolm was blind, then Elijah Muhammad guided him, and then he got his own eyes.
Of course there are a lot of people now that use Malcolm's image against the NOI, just as a lot of them used MLK's image against Malcolm, but he wasn't a traitor. He knew what he had to do and he did it, and it got him killed.

what did he teach that makes you feel that he's so great -

Malcolm was never a traitor. White america didn't made him a hero, it made him a traitor.

white america names schools and streets after black men that they have had their way with - there are many Malcolm X blvds and Malcolm X elementary schools - this is how white america works - i know white america well -


Malcolm was the BPP's hero, thats not what white america wanted.

after white america killed the BBP and set up Malcolm, Malcolm became an american hero


Malcolm was blind, then Elijah Muhammad guided him, and then he got his own eyes.]

lets look at what he accomplished with those eyes
what was the outcome ?

Of course there are a lot of people now that use Malcolm's image against the NOI, just as a lot of them used MLK's image against Malcolm, but he wasn't a traitor. He knew what he had to do and he did it, and it got him killed.


again - what got him killed is the fact that he started an all black gun club when he returned from mecca - he was promoting the gun and promoting retaliation against law official with firearms - but to top all that off, he abanndonned the weapons check procedure that was taught to him by his teacher - so those 3 men were able to get into the audobon with those guns - who told him to abandon the check procedure ?

No, I won't speak for people who consider him as a hero, but I consider him as a hero because he is one man who fought with his life for his beliefs. He did not hesitate, he wasn't afraid to bleed, he is a martyr for the cause of brotherhood. I know that in the Nation you consider him like any other ministers, but being outside the Nation, I saw him as an idea, a cause to be followed. This is what Malcolm X is to me.
This is not about including whites. As I said, to me, the memory of Malcolm is in NO way a instrument to denounce the NOI, as it is too many times.

as time goes by there will be allot more compliments for Brother Malcolm

I know that in the Nation you consider him like any other ministers, but being outside the Nation, I saw him as an idea, a cause to be followed.

i consider him one of our greatest Ministers

there were many more Mosques throughout america at that time
Malcolm didn't train most of the FOI



so he knew their limitations better than anyone ... i'm not sayin tha noi has their hands clean on this one because i use to run around cryin fuck noi too ... but imo tha government played a bigger role in this than anyone because 1 they couldve prevented it and 2 they allowed it to happen

Elijah did not save Malcolm's life, Malcolm saved his own life. Nor was Elijah Malcolm's first teacher (in Islam or otherwise). Elijah did not spark that big bang in Malcolm's mind that was another person. Nor did Elijah teach Malcolm everything he knows. The myths.

Those were NOT Elijah's teaching either. Elijah was instructed on what to teach and he was taught by his teacher just like Malcolm. And Elijah's teacher had a teacher too, so those were not his teachings either. If what made Malcolm Malcolm (according to you), the same would hold true for all those other ministers who were in the nation during the time of Malcolm however those other ministers didn't have the same ability as Malcolm.

The teachings didn't make Malcolm great, Malcolm made Malcolm great because it was Malcolm who put in the work. If it was all about the teachings, then everybody in the nation would have experienced the same or similiar results as Malcolm, however that's not the case. White america did NOT make Malcolm a hero, Malcolm put in the work, not white america.

They used his name (Malcolm) to shield their dirty religion. (5:14)
