It's MLK Day and there are still no questions exploring Malcolm X's anti-Semitism?

I'm shocked. Malcolm X was a Muslim, after all, so it makes his anti-Semitism less surprising, but no less repulsive. Everything about him was repulsive, though. Everything.

    MLK day is about Martin luther King, not malcolm X.

    regardless, Malcolm X was taught racism in life by the fact his mother had been raped by a white man. Growing up he saw a lot of injustice towards people of color. Then when he was in jail he changed his life around because of converting to the Muslim faith. he did reach racism of Jews and whites. Although he did help many black people do better in life, I believe you can not be happy and do well by hating people.

    Malcolm realized that the people of the nation of Islam, were not all they had said they were. The leader was cheating all over his wife, and then after he went Mecca, he saw that Muslims were white too. He changed his thoughts and his speeches.

    When back in America, because of his presence being so popular the leaders of the Nation of Islam were intimidated and upset by his new thinking. they didn't like it. It is thought that his own people, other muslims, killed him.
