Just watched it... another amazing episode.

I was thinking about the differences that have come to define Malcolm and Martins approach to civil rights as Malcolm was a product of a more North Eastern philosophy that was more fast pace(we want freedom and we want it now) and financially driven, While Martin was a southerner, a southern gentlemen. There lifestyles where totally different.

And I always knew their was a certain amount of sexism within the civil right struggle

Black folk like to pretend like we were all united and down for the cause.

exactly

I believe many families did not teach black pride because they were not proud to be black

And they were genuinely afraid.   Death was an absolute possibility but what they failed to see was the strength in numbers.  This is why Malcolm said you have to be willing to die or don't even talk about freedom.
