And why not a Malcolm X day?

19 Jan

As we approach MLK day, I want to further espouse my belief that brother Malcolm X did just as much for African Americans as Dr. Martin Luther King. If we are not going to recognize his contribution to the civil rights struggle here and abroad and give him his own day (and Americans another day of observance) then can we at least give him a U.S. stamp?

I’m just saying. And anybody who thinks he stood for violence as opposed to MLK’s view on non-violence I urge them to look at this clip and many others like this:
