Default I don't know much about Malcolm X. Why was he considered dangerous during his time?

Just curious. I'm not African American but I do respect the rights movements they had in the 1960s.

Because the idea of an educated black man has always been considered dangerous in America.

Back than. Not now. Younger black dudes get pissy about things nowadays that Malcolm X wouldn't have even noticed. Kinda crazy to think about how far the world has come even if things aren't completely fair/perfect yet. Could you imagine a 21 year old black dude in 2014 having to do this?



Educated black people do pretty well nowadays, it's the uneducated ones that are really fcked

Because he was the mouth piece of the Nation of Islam and they preached armed, violent resistance against the racially oppressive system. This was the antithesis of MLK/SNCC/etc philosophy which preached peaceful insubordination. The White establishment was convinced that if Malcolm's philosophy took hold there would be nation wide riots and rampages. They basically saw him as another Nat Turner. I actually did a paper in HS examining why the establishment was so quick to deal with leaders like MLK. Pretty much every major Civil Rights law followed some large scale violent uprising/riot. I think the government was scared that if they didn't let the peaceful protesters in the front door, Malcolm and the Black Panthers were going to kick in the back door and murder everyone in the house.

I'm sure they were more than happy to continue sicking the dogs and hoses on Black people at sit ins, freedom marches/rides indefinitely

Malcolm's world view changed drastically after he went on a pilgrimage to Mecca though. He cleaved himself from Elijah Muhammad and the nation as a result and unfortunately that's what got him killed.

Really fascinating read. Or if you're too lazy, just watch the Denzel/Spike Lee movie.

Or, he was the most prominent member of an insane cult. The same cult that when Malcolm didn't want anything to do with them anymore they murdered him.

But whatever. Stick to your "dangerous educated black man" narrative.

Quote:
From his adoption of the Nation of Islam in 1952 until he broke with it in 1964, Malcolm X promoted the Nation's teachings. These included the beliefs:

that black people are the original people of the world
that white people are "devils"
that blacks are superior to whites, and
that the demise of the white race is imminent.

Malcolm X also called for a segregated nation for blacks and use of violence whenever necessary.

Well, the Nation of Islam didn't lynch a bunch of people to my knowledge.

They're not AS bad as the KKK.

Really? He was young and ignorant and got brainwashed by the Nation Of Islam while in prison. He then made a name for himself by preaching the radical, racist agenda of the Nation. I'll give him credit that he finally got wise to the fallacy of the Nation Of Islam and left it. The smartest thing he ever did got him killed.
