"Power Never Takes A Back Step - Only In The Face Of More Power."
Tha Artivist Writes:
Today (May 19, 2008) marks the life affirmation day of one of our greatest freedom fighters and most eloquent truth speakers for liberation: Malcolm X...Malcolm would have been 83 years young today..And yet his spirit lives...
I know many of us are getting carried away in this recent "change phenomenon",but recognize what Malcolm taught us that wolves and foxes may differ in appearance slightly, but are still one in the same...Bro. Malcolm, even from beyond the grave, is urging us towards progress while reminding us to still proceed with caution...
As long as there are people willing to fight against all forms of oppression, repression and depression then Malcolm lives; As long as there are oppression, repression and depression left to fight, then Malcolm's work is incomplete...It is up to you and I to complete it...
Let us honor the living legacy of this mighty and courageous Ancestor by giving the world the best we have to offer!!!
Look for me in the whirlwind...
Yours in solidarity and creativity,
Bro. Ron a.k.a. R2C2H2 Tha Artivist

Dr. Marable, a 21 year old attendant of the historic 1972 Black Political Agenda Convention in Gary, Indiana also talked about the inadequacies of the Black leadership model and the so-called two party system today and the need for a third political party which basically addresses the needs of African Americans...

Another complementary perspective concerning Malcolm X, Democrats and American politrixs:
Malcolm was as great,complex and committed as they come, who could not be brought with money (was once offered 3 million dollars to leave the Honorable Elijah Muhammad to start teaching a more "traditional" form of Islam, but he flat out refused)...Malcolm also had the underrated ability to admit when he was wrong and was willing to change in order to be a part of the solution, in order to confront and eradicate the problem...Malcolm experienced the extremes of the human condition in his brief yet full 39 years on this piece of rock we call earth...Let us rejoice in what he left us instead of how he left us...We got a lot of work to do so let's get to it!!! Hotep!!!
Your comrade in the struggle.
