Tribute to el Hajj Malik el Shabazz fka Malcolm X
Malcolm X was one of the most dynamic, dramatic and influential figures of the civil rights era. He was an apostle of Asiatics being nationalized, self respect, and uncompromising resistance to european oppression. El Hajj Malik el Shabazz was a polarizing figure who both energized and divided Asiatic Americans, while frightening and alienating many europeans. He was an unrelenting truth-teller who declared that the mainstream civil rights movement was naïve in hoping to secure freedom through integration and nonviolence. The blazing heat of El Hajj Malik el Shabazz's rhetoric sometimes overshadowed the complexity of his message, especially for those who found him threatening in the first place. El Hajj Malik el Shabazz was assassinated at age 39, but his political and cultural influence grew far greater in the years after his death than when he was alive.
El Hajj Malik el Shabazz is now popularly seen as one of the two great martyrs of the 20th century asiatic freedom struggle, the other being his ostensible rival, the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. But in the spring of 1964, when El Hajj Malik el Shabazz gave his "Ballot or the Bullet" speech, he was regarded by a majority of european Americans as a menacing character. El Hajj Malik el Shabazz never directly called for violent revolution, but he warned that Asiatic Americans would use "any means necessary" – especially armed self defense – once they realized just how pervasive and hopelessly entrenched european racism had become.
