Nah. White people twisted his words and stripped him until he was known as a blush toy that says “I have a dream” when you pull the string.
But when I look back on Malcolm X’s beliefs in his early days his views were way more sensible. People labeled him an extremist when really his views weren’t extreme at all. I guess because he stood for full black solidarity and limiting contact with white people until we got ourselves together folks took that as “anti white”. I honestly feel like if we listened to Malcolm more than MLK we would have been better off.
I agree with this 100%. I truly believe Malcolm had black people’s best interest in mind. Reading his views compared to MLK’s I’ve always agreed with him more. I just think MLK gets too much of a “sensible black leader” rap. He though integration would cure everything but Malcolm knew it was deeper than that.
