Malcolm X


“We didn’t land on Plymouth Rock. Plymouth Rock landed on us.”

Today is Malcolm X‘s birthday (1925-1965).

Frye in Notebook 21:

I must read Malcolm X to see why the hell a black revolutionary would turn to the religion of the Arab slave-traders. I suppose it’s a vulgarization of the black-Hebrew anti-Egyptian Queen Sheba let-my-people-go alliance. Because the Queen-Bride is certainly black (reversed into white), whatever suit I’m expounding.
