The editorial represents a classic example and study regarding white, super-liberal-fragility; avoidance-behavior, and chronic denial --- relative to participation in individual and institutional racism. Instead of fessing-up --- the author attempts to shift critical dialogue to the idea that people need to make-up and let bygones be bygones --- even when they haven't completely passed away --- AMAZING!!!
COMMUNITY ALERT --- We have an important and interesting, new twist in the upcoming 2017 Local Elections, i.e., Malik Evans has announced that he's running for Rochester City Council, which of course means that if he wins --- that will leave ANOTHER open seat on the Rochester City School District Board of Education (in addition to the three that are up for re-election --- Van White, Cynthia Elliott, and Jose Cruz), which also means that (theoretically) --- the community could change the MAJORITY of school board members in 2017. I'm not sure about what happens if Malik Evans wins a Council seat, i.e., not sure if he gets to choose the individual who will finish out his remaining, two-year term, or if there would be a special election. I assume it's the former --- rather than the latter. In any case, this IS important news (at least potentially).
"Just 47.5 percent of students here graduate within four years - that's the lowest rate in all of New York."
It's ONLY (SOLELY) because you're listening and processing from a super-narrow, Eurocentric perspective --- that you believe Malcolm's skillful utilization of the term "victim" is "a sure sign of low self esteem." You clearly don't understand his calculated-psychology. If you LISTEN --- I mean REALLY LISTEN to the entire 6 minutes and 43 seconds (6:43) clip --- you MAY begin to understand (even though I really doubt it) --- because honestly, I don't think you have a reference point for seeing/hearing this any other way than the way you've been trained to see/hear it.
You obviously are NOT a good listener, or you would not have made the statement that --- "never once does he mention a republican." Please take your own advice --- Please pay CLOSE attention: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uLTGvX58mn…
Yes johnny --- Once again Malcolm X preaches that BOTH democrats and republicans use black people.
As it relates to your stupendous statement about Malcolm having "low self esteem" --- IN YOUR DREAMS.
Our Dear Brother was not only one of the boldest, proudest, most intelligent beings in all of the U.S, and the world during the 20th Century, but he also had the charisma and talent to help instill the same kind of boldness and BLACK PRIDE in millions of African peoples around the world.
So, back to the drawing board johnny.
Yes johnny --- Democrats are to the City --- what Republicans are to the County.
MALCOLM X EXPLAINS DEMOCRATS AND REPUBLICANS:
