It is obvious that there could or should be a connections or alliance between the Nation of Islam and the KKK because both groups want the exact same things; to oppress women, exploit religous beliefs and to be racial segregation. Also, I have seen Klan members being interviewed on talk shows on more than one occasion over the years who praise the Nation of Islam and actually say that its because the Klan and the Nation of Islam want the same things. It would not be inconcievable for me to believe that Malcom X meet with or consorted with the Klan before his awakening to the truth of Islam and while still under the cult like spell of the Nation of Islam; however, afterwards, I am sure that Malcom X came to see the Klan for what it really was as he did the Nation of Islam--the realizations and protests of which got him assinated. I personally believe that the Nation of Islam is anything from just a religous organization to a cult, depending on how deep you are into it. I know of all the good that the Nation of Islam does, depending on who you are and where you live in this country, but, there were plantation owners that did "good" things for their slaves. I just cannot see the difference. As far as the Klan is concerned, they are no longer poor rednecks running down lone black men on dark, deserted streets; they are now in the Senate, the House, the White House - they are your doctors, lawyers, school superintendents, the people you spend your money with everyday - the redneck stereo-type of the Klan is only true in rare instances that rarely affect African Americans directly. There was some mention of Jews fostering the AIDs epidemic; the aids virus should be accredited the the germ warfare efforst of the US, German and Japanese government/military scientists. - - And African Americans, as we protect ourselves and fight against this neo-genocide campaign should never forget along the way that this virus was created in a lab and that the green monkey theory of this virus is more propaganda that the the virus creators new they could rely on the keep people from demanding the truth of the virus' origin.
