Joe Green on Manning Marable's last book, published posthumously.
"I believe in recognizing every human being as a human being--neither white, black, brown, or red; and when you are dealing with humanity as a family there's no question of integration or intermarriage. It's just one human being marrying another human being or one human being living around and with another human being."
Malcolm X (The Autobiography of Malcolm X: As Told to Alex Haley)

In each case the true prospect of liberation was aborted in favor of the continuation of strife, a very real parallel to the twin efforts of CIA and CPUSSR to change out the corresponding doves Kennedy and Khrushchev for the hawk-puppets LBJ and Brezhnev.

Malcolm's greater consideration for the role of women would force the reformation of Islam.

Malcolm's anti-war sentiments would focus a hotter spotlight on the Libyan farce than the tulip-tiptoeing Congress.
