  •  Malcolm trashed the March on Washington lol (0+ / 0-)

    called it the FARCE on Washington iirc....

    Yeah. El-Shabazz is one of those guys like Che Guevara where I laugh out loud every time I see a pacifist idolizing them.

    I think about Malcolm a lot when I think about the Syrian rebels. MLK would preach forgiveness. Malcolm tho? He'd be pro-beheading Secret Policemen.

    Imho.
