MLK/Malcolm X?? MLK for civil rights, Blacks a minority group in the U.S., needed majority Whites to win civil rights. Malcolm X told MLK, “Hey, people of color outnumber White people by 10 to 1 — we’re talking about the world, not the U.S.!! Why are Blacks a minority?? Blacks are in the majority!! Civil rights?? How about human rights for people of color throughout the whole world??!!” Yes, Plains GA. Jimmy Carter capitalized on Malcolm X — human rights trans-national.

Malcolm X self-actualized/transcended amid being outted by his Black Muslim org, which is how he found comfort/affinity w/442 “beat all odds” morale booster.

*

To me, Malcolm X saw a universal class/world struggle for equality, vs. a more provincial home-based effort by MLKing to win over middle class Whites in America.

*

In this sense, Malcolm X was more advanced in consciousness than an also-evolving MLK, who not long before MLK was gunned down, was isolated from mainstream moderates/centrists by MLK’s opposition to our VNWar.

*

Tragically, both men were assassinated BEFORE mid-life, before their devotion to humanity/the world could be fulfilled, but in their martyrdom we try to pick up the pieces & ensure that MX/MLK did not die in vain.

*

As one keen everyday observer lamented, African-American former college star athlete, he thought that MLK was going to be Robert Kennedy’s VP choice. Great vision/high hopes!!

*

Aren’t these what America is all about?? Land of opportunity for everyone, regardless of race/religion/ancestral origin!

*

Barack Obama’s Presidency shows that MX/MLK did NOT die in vain!!

*

Neither did Bobby Kennedy die in vain, nor JFK, for they facilitated Catholic Irish/Poles/Italians/etc. to reach for the stars/nothing is impossible to overcome/achieve.
