      I feel that I must strongly protest the use of Malcolm X by Muslims living in the West.

      Your experience has nothing do with that of Africans forcibly removed from their homeland only to endure the Middle Passage and the horrors of slavery in the New World.

      Your parents were immigrants of their own free will.

      They endured no Middle Passage.

      Whatever discrimination they, and perhaps you, have faced can in no way compare to that experienced by African-Americans in the U.S.

      I guess I would be more comfortable with this were I convinced that young Muslims were truly educated in African-American history.

          Malcolm X was a Muslim living in the West and was silenced because of his adherence to Islaam.

          + it's definitely a good analogy to those today who are kissing up to the 'Master'

            The way Denzel Washington done it in the film Malcom X , was awesome.
            "Closer and closer to mankind comes their Reckoning: yet they heed not and they turn away" (21:1)

            " How can the one who chooses a hour of Haraam pleasure, above the eternal pleasure of Jannah, ever be considered as sane? "
            -Ibn Al Qayyim

              Anyone comparing the discrimination faced by black Americans in the US (not to speak of apartheid in South Africa) with the situation of Muslims in "Western" countries does not know what he's talking about.

              By the way, "Muslim" Arabs were involved in the African slave trade to the same extent as "Christian" Westerners were.

              Ever heard of the "zanj rebellion" ?

                    Have you read his autobiography? You do know he repudiate the heretical form of Islam practiced by the extremist black racialist nationalists of the 'Nation of Islam'. After going on pilgrimage to the Middle East and seeing Muslims of all colours, tribes and backgrounds eating and praying together. I have mostly been of the opinion that he was silenced for adherence to true Islam by members of the 'Nation of Islam' rather than 'the man'.

                        Well, he was killed by one of the numerous factions competing for power within the Nation of Islam.

                            I don't think you understand why so many people love Brother Malcolm, Its not because they identify with him on slavery and torture of white Americans during those times. They love him because he was a Muslim, because he spoke the truth and because he was smart and intelligent . they just nothing you can't love about Malcolm.

                            It has nothing to do with Slavery, or the Middle passage or discrimination.
