Return to Resources to help us rethink the current crisis (in perception)

I submitted the following comment to the moderator at Cyprian Fernandes: Headlines of my life! for the article below; however, Cyprian Fernandes: Headlines of my life! chose not to accept nor publish my comment. I guess that my providing not only feedback, but also resources was too much!

Cyprian Fernandes: Headlines of my life!: Malcolm X, Pio Gama Pinto, Dick Gregory, what connects them?, February 6, 2021

El-Hajj Malik El-Shabazz (Malcolm X) was assassinated first because he had already made the radical leap to work with anyone (regardless of their skin color and religion) to improve the lives of oppressed people throughout the world. He had moved to human rights (social and economic justice for full, human beings) & freedom. In order to accomplish that goal, he was working with African leaders to take the struggle of Afro-Americans to the United Nations (UN). Were the African leaders that El-Hajj Malik El-Shabazz was working with also assassinated?

According to Dick Gregory {in an interview on “What’s the 411? with Sharon Kay Show” on JAZZY 88 WFSK in 2011 (?)}, the true assassin(s) of Malcolm X were positioned above the crowd at the Audubon Theatre and Ballroom []. Malcolm X was given mouth-to-mouth resuscitation by a government operative to finish what the bullets hadn’t already.

Regarding Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr., he was assassinated, a year after his “Beyond Vietnam — A Time to Break Silence” speech where King discussed the “… giant triplets of racism, extreme materialism, and militarism …”, by the same global el-ite’s “corporament” that had killed John Fitzgerald Kennedy, Sr. (JFK), Robert Francis Kennedy, Sr. (RFK), and El-Hajj Malik El-Shabazz (Malcolm X) {}. Both King and Malcolm gave their support to people struggling for better working & living conditions. Their biggest threat to the international power structure that El-Hajj Malik El-Shabazz called out in Detroit on February 14, 1965, was that they were confronting the foundations of the power structure (divide-and-conquer) by developing allies throughout this country & the world.

Regarding Dick Gregory, he was much more than simply a “Civil Rights Activist”. I have included various links below that provide more information about who he was:
