Atlanta needs an Oriental transgender mayor. Honestly anything would be better than the corruption and ineptitude you have had lately.

I might give you MLK as a racial coalition builder....but give me a break on Malcolm X who said "the death of 120 white folks is a beautiful thing"......funny way to "reach out" and "create a racial coalition".......not to mention those 120 whites were from Atlanta.

"You may be shocked by these words coming from me. But on this pilgrimage, what I have seen, and experienced, has forced me to re-arrange much of my thought patterns previously held, and to toss aside some of my previous conclusions. This was not too difficult for me. Despite my firm convictions, I have always been a man who tries to face facts, and to accept the reality of life as new experiences and new knowledge unfolds it. I have always kept an open mind, which is necessary to the flexibility that must go hand in hand with every form of intelligent search for truth. [LEFT]During the past eleven days here in the Muslim world, I have eaten from the same plate, drunk from the same glass, and slept in the same bed, (or on the same rug) -- while praying to the same God -- with fellow Muslims, whose eyes were the bluest of blue, whose hair was the blondest of blond, and whose skin was the whitest of white. And in the same words and in the actions and in the deeds of the 'white' Muslims, I felt the same sincerity that I felt among the black African Muslims of Nigeria, Sudan and Ghana." -Malcolm X, Letter from Mecca

Unfortunately, the 120 Atlantans who died in that plane crash were mostly Episcopalian, Presbyterian, Methodist, Babtist and Jewish......not "white Muslims".....so I'm sure Mr. Little's joy over their deaths remained in place even after his visit to Mecca.

Except the people who Malcolm mentioned his letter were white folks, and your original assertion was that Malcolm X hated white folks.

I know my childhood neighborhood in South Dekalb was mostly white when my parents moved in in 1977. No one made them(white folks) leave, that's for sure. I've had white childhood friends who disappeared on me by the 5th grade and it was only after high school when I slowly realized why.

Black folks reached across the aisle first with the hand of friendship. It was white folks who by large slapped it away, and decided to restyled themselves as "conservative" Republicans and started this political stonewalling mess every step of the way. Nevermind the truth that these "conservatives" ate just as much at the government pig trough as anyone else, especially during the 1930s depression. "Less goverment" advocates indeed...

I'm tired of this southern strategy that tries to act as if black folks by large are the unprogressive ones who refuse to be part of the coalition. Heck, MLK Jr. AND Malcolm X were assassinated for trying to create a racial coalition for pete sakes!!! Name me an equivalent white civil rights activist that has given that sort of blood.

God, this stuff never ends, does it?

Beautiful post, Brother Acid...

I merely quoted your hero....his words were his words, not mine....you and Mr. Little have to live with his words and thoughts, not me.....you can interpret "the death of 120 white folks is a beautiful thing" anyway you want to....you can honor the man that said it.....but please don't try to make him or yourself out to be a "race conciliator" when you honor the man that said it. One of my relatives was on that plane.

I like how you ignored the part where he pretty much states that his views have changed. But then again I do take you to be one who is ignorant of history, and brother Malik-Al-Hajj-Shabazz's split with the nation of Islam, and the tension which followed afterwards, partly due to Malcolm x condemning their hateful views.

RACE DOES NOT MATTER. WHAT MATTERS IS THE MIND THE PERSON HAS AND THE FUTURE HE WANTS FOR THE CITY. AND FOR ALL CHRISTIANS FORGIVE ME IF YOU ARE NOT. BUT GOD MADE ONE RACE THE HUMAN RACE, MAN CREATED RACISM BELIEVE IT
