We've already been down this road with CON-Feed.
MALCOLM X: BLACK CONSERVATIVE???
To your question, with respect to BOTH MLK and Malcolm X, neither would come down on CON-Feed's side. Neither were so narrow in their views. Both men held a degree of BOTH ideas -- those narrowly framed as "liberal" and "conservative".quote:Does anyone else find it a bit odd that some would now try to call Malcolm X (and other black historical leaders) "conservative" when, as in Malcolm's case, he argued for revolution - an overthrow of the social, political, economic, and cultural foundations of the country?
Now what exactly about that is "conservative"?
Those terms essentially have no meaning in that they do a disservice by trying to pigeonhole either of those Black philosophical traditions withing a White Left vs. Right construct. Those terms simply don't convert nor can either MLK or Malcolm X be "convert" into one of those ridiculous and IRRELEVANT terms.
Please refrain from the "they're both dogs" arguments. Matter of fact, please reference THE WHOLE (not just one aspect - to misrepresent and misappropriate) of MLK's and Malcolm X's arguments and views.
Neither of them were as scared of White people (scared of challenging the system) as CON-Feed is.
CON-Feed is an ideological Test-Tube Baby. His school of non-thought has no organic history or background in any respectable African/African-American tradition.
And just in case his Test-Tube Baby a$$ wants to comment on this thread, please have him (and you can if you want to) direct his comments towards this:
"You can't have racism without capitalism. If you find antiracists, usually
they're socialists or their political philosophy is that of socialism."
Look it up. Ponder on that for a while. Let it percolate then holla back and tell me how that BS (Malcolm beleived that blacks should do for themselves which I believe is what ConFed is usually preaching.)
But then again you apparently had problems telling the difference (the Distinctions with a pronounced Difference) between Spike Lee and Bill Cosby.
