Happy Malcolm X Day

Okay I know it is King Day and not X Day.   But I do think the world would be better if it were X Day.   I am a recovering liberal.  And in my pre recovery days I idolized Dr. King, like most of the Western World does.  He was one of my patron political saints.  But after passing through the rehab of reality I have to admit I was wrong.  King's approach of integration was incorrect. It was not good for African-Americans. It was not good for European-Americans. It was not good for anyone. 

    Malcolm X's approach was a better one.  Black empowerment,  segregation, responsibility, separation.  Even after he broke with Elijah Muhammad, Malcolm pretty much believed in these ideals.  Jim Crow was not a bad thing. Separate but Equal is not a bad thing.  It could and would work if the people in both communities put their hearts, souls, and energy into it.  And Islam is not a bad religion for African-Americans, just as Asatru and Heathenism is not a bad path for our people.  Strong, proud communities working side by side, but separate would be a worthy alternative to Dr. King's vision of everyone living together in a synthetic mesh that only creates conflict and hurt. 

   Malcolm's way was the better way.  So on this Federal Day, it is him that I honor, not Martin. I venture to say that Martin got it wrong.
