Reply to "The True History of Malcolm X & the NOI"


What do you have to say about it? Did you teach Malcolm? Did you make Malcolm? Did you clean up Malcolm? Did you put Malcolm out before the world? Was Malcolm your traitor or was he ours? And if we dealt with him like a nation deals with a traitor what the hell business is it of yours?

- Louis Farrakhan, 1993 Savior's Day address

Do I need to know any more "true history"?

Yes, we did deal with Malcolm the same way any Nation would deal with a traitor. We applied justice pursuant to the law of the Nation Of Islam. What did this look like? NOI rules do not permit the murder of any member. A person found guilty is given time out of the Nation.

Malcolm was excommunicated from the Nation Of Islam.

Those who claim an NOI conspiracy are disagreeing with the Nation, and they are disagreeing with Malcolm himself, who publically stated that he no longer believed that the NOI was behind the attempts on his life. The assasination of Malcolm in 1965 was not the first attempt on his life.

Malocolm specifically pointed toward a government conspiracy...The government pointed the finger at the Nation, and too many black people were eager to believe the charge despite the fact that the FBI has admitted that several of Malcolms closest security memnbers were paid agents of the FBI.

It is eassy to take a comment by the Minister and spin it....
