Beware The Snake

In Malcolm X’s biography, he relates a conversation with a NOI minister he encounters in prison who says in sum “God’s word ain’t no hustle.” But while God’s word ISN’T, the movement often is. In fact, since the shift from liberation to integrationism, the movement has been one of the biggest hustles out there. People who run no organizations, contribute no real money, have no degrees of study, and really are largely armchair revolutionaries show up and take the energy, resources, and focus of the people to themselves claiming to be messiahs. Same thing for some who are actually paid by the Eurocentric system as infiltrators and agents provocateur to be placed with the movement to assure that the movement move (to defuse pressure), but also not go beyond defined parameters.
