Malcolm X, born Malcolm Little, lost his father at a very young age, and also had his mother taken from him a few years later, and put in a mental hospital, for refusing pork (due to religious purposes), and the welfare agents called crazy for refusing food, and then threw her into a mental hospital. These are just a few of the events that formed Malcolm X into the legend he became and is now. Sometimes I wonder what Malcolm would think if he was still alive today. What would he think of the modern African American people? What would he think of the modern white people?
I believe we have come a long way as people. When you leave your home, get in your car, or even enter your home. You are less likely to be assaulted or be accosted. As Adam Kokesh brings up, "We are statistically more at peace than we have ever been", I am both confused and conflicted by that quote. Because it just seems that the government is always growing, but in other aspects it seems that government is shrinking.
Some people will say "The revolution won't be televised", and i think that is very true. Those protesters and rioters you see on the news, those aren't revolutionaries or social justice warriors the media claims them to be. For example, back when riots were most common in Ferguson, Missouri. One of George Soro's front groups, known as MORE, offered people money to protest in Ferguson. What would Malcolm think if he knew that people didn't protest because they wanted justice, but that they protested because they wanted money?
To tie everything back together, many people say that Malcolm was violent, and that's why he's a bad role model, or that history should remember him as a villain. But, people misunderstand why he was "violent". Malcolm disagreed with non-violent protest (like how MLK would protest) because it already showed to the same people who enslaved and beat you, that you are willing to rollover for them, so they can keep beating you.
