For Malcolm X, Islam was discipline and purpose, it gave him reason and life. It exhorted him to act. #WhatMalcolmXMeans
There is no way to seperate Malcolm X from being a revert, from being imprisoned, from being poor, from being Black and Muslim. All of these conditions informed who we know today and who we look up to for guidance and wisdom. #WhatMalcolmXMeans
If you love Malcolm X you have to love the poor, the misguided, the imprisoned. You have to love Black Muslims, and more specifically Black American Muslims that paved the way for the rest of us to exist in this Babylon #WhatMalcolmXMeans
