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     




heck yeah there was.  my gramma even tole me as much.  alot of ninja's like to talk about the glory days before feminism n'sh*t but won't acknowledge the real sh*t that went on behind the scenes.

I like how they mentioned some black were not on board with the civil rights movement

I think many believe all blacks during that time were for it

I also liked how it showed how a lot of the youth came together and were a major part of the movement, even though some of their elders were "against" it


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

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.

Okay black people are amazing.  I really wish our young people now were more aware of our journey.

Keep trying.  That happened to me last week and after about 5 minutes I was able to play it.
