I'm putting on my flame suit but

i don't support Malcolm X.

He was a great leader during the african american civil rights

but he was just as racist as the whites...

when he was with the NOI..i can see how you perceive it that way..but he was more Pro-Black than Anti-White...
but once he makes Hajj and returns to form Muslim Mosque Inc.and Origination of Afro -American Unity....thats where he was going to excel and make adifference...
while in NOI he just fell in line and did what he was told/taught to believe...(thats not to say that what he was saying while with NOI was not true)
do the knowledge..


peace to the gods and earths...

Look at what he did towards the end of his life before you make that conclusion. He definitely changed.

*YAWN*

- you know, i know these cats really have something to say, but it gets lost in the over the top gasps for air while being told over the same old tone aseveryone else that want to be a poet today. i mean c'mon man, have some originality to your flow.....is it that hard to come up with??

- it reminds me of white people who have for decades cant help but add the "uh huh, uh huh" to the raps they write, as if it has to be a part of thesong?

- i tried, i honestly did. i only got to 1:27 and turned it off. those loud !%* gulps of air and the yelling gets on my last nerve. my wife watches this show,i close the door, its like nails on a chalk board to me.


- just so happens i sent a poetry video to a freind today, and my prime reason was because they too are annoyed by the common practices of today urban poetsand the vid i sent was something different....funny too:

I'm sorry I'm all for the positive messages for blacks and humanity in general but this was whack. For some reasons already stated.

The con man dressed up as a bum on the 5 train today spittin Mos Def's verse on Thieves In The Night for money > this.

to the person who called Malcom X a racists......he changed after he visited Mecca....and the majority of whites were racists and treated blacks like crap soits not surprising that some blacks had resentment towards the white man
