You came here with that ISSUE.
Manning Marable CORROBORATES your view of the issue... WHERE? HOW?
Towards that end, this statement of yours (below) = NON-SEQUITUR "it does not follow."
quote:marable talks about how malcolm broke with the NOI in 1964 and spent most of the following months, prior to his assassination, outside of the country. likewise, bro. wazir mentioned how malcolm's sister had to tell him to come back from africa to take care of the organization (s) he was in charge of. when he came back, that's when malcolm was killed.
1Mile, you keep highlight more and more NON-SEQUITURs The stuff just does not "follow."
quote:so out of all that, how is it that some/many have come away with the view that the NOI "blew malcolm away?"
You're fighting your own shadow. You pretended to have a point, something that would suggest that Marable has would CORROBORATE your idea about how Malcolm wasn't "the hero" people want to make him out to be.... but YOU KEEP HIGHLIGHTING EVERYTHING BUT SOMETHING BUT THAT!
All you've done was prove that your position here is nothing but NOI Apologetics and how you take issue with some imaginary "some/many" people who are hardly represented here. Worst than that, you claim there is "CORROBORATION" but you keep pointing to common knowledge and/or insignificant factoids as if you can make a big case out of small disconnected parts.
Yours is a failure of reasoning... It does not follow that, since Wazir and Marable "agree" on Malcolm's well document travels that whatever idea you have about Malcolm not being as much of a "hero" in your or Wazir's account has any more credibility just because there is "agreement" (the stuff is common knowledge) on an UNRELATED point.
And Marable does not exonerate the NOI. Even with the FBI and Malcolm's entourage, the NOI is still part of the group of villains. Where are your comparative quotes from Marable and Wazir on those things?
Did Wazir say FBI + NOI + Malcolm's Entourage = Assasination?
Please find something other than NON-SEQUITURS.
