Reply to "Should Black People..."

CF's attitude towards Black Business dealing with White Business reminds me of Malcolm X's attitude towards White people in a scene of the movie "Malcolm X" with Denzel Washington.

Malcolm X (still "Malcolm Little" at the time) was a teenager/young adult working on a train as a waiter having to serve White passengers. He walked around carrying food trays with a big smile on his face calling out what food he was carrying. A White navyman (this was shortly after WWII) asks for some food, and Malcolm [Denzel] says to the White man, "Yes'suh! I aims to please and I'm pleased to aim!" with a coonish grin on his face. The White navyman says, "I like you, boy." patronizingly. Malcolm X smiles and says, "Thank you 'suh!"


*shakes head*

CON-Feed has the same attitude on how Blacks should behave around Whitey. Except unlike Malcolm X, he REALLY FEELS THAT WAY. In the movie, Malcolm, even as a young man, was just catoring to White people because it was the only job he could get. Shortly after saying, "Thank you 'suh!" to the White customer, he imagine shoving food in the navyman's face for being patronizing. CF would NEVER even DREAM of doing that.
