Reply to "Dr King vs. Malcolm X"

FINE, please back away from the commercialized hype!

Malcolm stood for was that tradition of black nationalism, and anyone who interprets Malcolm and says that he repudiated that tradition, anyone who says that Malcolm turned his back on black nationalism toward the end of his life, that is incorrect, wrong, not supported by the evidence.

Malcolm X was a black nationalist first, last and always.
Now, I'd more than welcome your evidence in support of your cliche-ish ideas here, Fine.

Please detail how Malcolm X's views "softened" with respect to Black Nationalism. That is, please detail what changed in terms of his professed Black Nationalist objectives. Which one of those objectives, the core objectives were "softened" and changed?

Upon WHAT do you base your views on?
What in particular did Malcolm X say with regards to those principles/objectives of Black Nationalism did he either disavow, dismiss, devalue or otherwise disregard after Mecca?

Did Malcolm X "soften" (i.e. modify/change) his view on Black Nationalism with respect to these definitive objectives:

  • The economic philosophy of black nationalism only means that our people need to be re-educated into the importance of controlling the economy of the community in which we live, which means that we won't have to constantly be involved in picketing and boycotting other people in other communities in order to get jobs

  • The political philosophy of black nationalism means that the black man should control the politics and the politicians in his own community; no more.

    ... IF SO... What did they change to? What was the "soften" version of those views on Black Nationalism?

    C'mon, ENLIGHTEN me...
