It's been over 20 years since I read the Autobiography of Malcolm X. It finally brought to life the everything that I'd read in the Autobiography of Assata Shakur, The Autobiography of George Jackson, and Children's Voices from the Ghetto. However, the brother that urged that I read the Autobiography of Malcolm X spent five months persuading me to do so. He was one of the most " awakened " brothers I've ever known. However, he dated a white girl. I was skeptical about the book, because I had very low opinions about most black people who dated outside of their race. After reading the the book, I gravitated towards people who were like Malcolm X BEFORE he started drinking tea with white Arabs. Real black folks were ( and are ) my " cup of tea. " I always thought that more, and more, and more people were needed to reach a threshold that would reverse the damage that integration had imparted upon our communities. I now realize that the threshold number of people has always been around, but isolated. With social media and the internet, the World is a much smaller place. The internet has given me a voice in over 120 nations. However, now that the isolation of the " chosen few " needed to galvanize salvation within the community has been iradicated, more work must be done. The people that are ready to do what is necessary to be free are far outnumbered by people who like to talk about freedom. TALK IS CHEAP, AND SO IS TRASH, and the talkers must be tossed out of the movement in order to salvage it.
