Malcolm fought racism with racism of his own. Granted, he lifted alot of black peoples spirits and made them feel like they were people, but it was still done with racism which would have led to God knows how much violence if MLK didn't come in to solidify the peace.
Malcolm created a revolution for islam in the black community, MLK created a revolution in peoples judgement and opened their minds.
the thing is malcolm wasn't f!ghting racism with racism, he just felt since it was a black cultral issue that only blacks needed to be involved, and when he was willing to let other races help it was already after his split with the nation of islam who were the main ones telling malcolm to not use white or other races's help
just had to throw that in there
malcolm only felt violence was necessary when faced with violence, he wasn't advocating for violence agaisnt innocent people, just against those who were willing to keep blacks oppressed
its the same thing with the black panthers mainsteam media and schools made it seem like they were just anti white and racist when their messages were just convoluted to discredit them
