Reply to "Does MLK Get A Bad Rap?"

JUXTAPOSITION:

  • At the end of the day, though, didn't they both share the same objectives? Didn't they both fight and die for black liberty? In some sense, didn't the fact that there was a Martin make Malcolm more effective, and vice versa?

  • At the end of the day, who did more for black people?
  • Are we talking about the same "end" of the same "day"? Do you not see the contradictory/conflicting ideas there?

    Does MLK get a bad rap sometimes by those that admire the more aggressive tactic, despite perhaps its less effective results?
    That presumes that both held the same objective - i.e. defined it the same - and that you can objectively measure or plot on some scale or rather on the same scale where they both rank. I'm not sure you can do that.

    Anyway... if you tell the truth we continue to revisit the very things Malcolm X presented... And, of course, some of what MLK did too, but that is definitely to a lesser extent. So, how can you say there is ultimate "success" on the ultimate "goal"?
