Happy birthday to El-Hajj Malik El-Shabazz, or as he's better known to the rest of the world, Malcolm X. He was born on this date in Omaha, NE in 1925.
Our 'Shining Black Prince' as the late Ossie Davis said about him in his eulogy after his assassination, is misunderstood by people and is called 'racist' by many whites.
But then again, any Black person who has immense pride in our people and is blunt about the subject of race and race relations in the United States gets tarred and feathered with that assertion.
Renee at Womanist Musings has an interesting post up about him.
