    Malcolm X: Angel or Devil? Human Rights Advocate or Extremist?

    None! It was a story of a man trapped between two race at a time when one was inferior and the other superior. Unfortunately, he found himself being categorised as an inferior even though he shared both traits. This is what drove some forceful emotions of negative sentiments and rebellion against the so called superior race.

    We're creatures of a dualistic nature. Every human being is both angel and devil. It's a safe assumption MX was no exception.

    Likewise, why is it necessary to think of him as either a human rights activist or an extremist? There is no reason he couldn't have been both.

    Technically, there were three very different Malcolm X's and they were the following:

    (1) Malcolm Little, the pimp and common thug.

    (2) Malcolm X, the fire-breathing minister of the Nation of Islam who tried to influence as many blacks as he could to hate whites.

    (3) Malcolm X, the man who made a pilgrimage to Mecca and learned (while he was there) that "all men are created equal."

    I don't think he was a devil, nor was he an angel. I think that because of his first hand experience with racism, Malcolm X developed a radical opinion against all white people. Then he turned to the Nation of Islam religion. Afterwards he traveled to other countries and saw other "Muslims" that had "white" skin. This made him realize the injustices that were happening in the U.S. was not what was happening in other countries.

    You can tell that he was changing and his heart was softening toward the end of his life. He was going to leave the Nation of Islam because he saw immorality that was being committed by it's leader. I think that's what got him killed. 

    If he had not been assassinated I think he would have changed into a different kind of a person than he was in his younger years.

    People should read his autobiography. It's very interesting and you can clearly see his change toward the end.

    Who is a more normal and just human being? someone who practices exclusion or someone who fights for inclusion?

    Attikos hit it on the head. He like all of us is both.

    Purity and righteousness are thinly veiled facades that evaporate with even minor scrutiny.

    All men have sinned, will sin, and no one is exempt.
