Malcolm X Predicted the Progression of Racism

Today we celebrate the birth of Malcolm X…..a very astute observer of society and human nature…..he made many predictions that few heeded but the one that he was spot on was the progression of racism in the US even after the Civil Rights Act…..

This excerpt revisits a landmark law that was supposed to end racism and the outspoken activist who predicted it would not.

In celebration of Malcolm X’s birthday, we present this exclusive excerpt from Ibram X. Kendi’s new book, Stamped from the Beginning: The Definitive History of Racist Ideas in America. As racism endures, this excerpt revisits the landmark law that was supposed to end racism and the outspoken activist who predicted it would not. Malcolm X is closely bonded in history with the Civil Rights Act of 1964. Historians have rightfully hailed the myriad of ways in which this law brought on racial progress. But this excerpt reveals the reasons why this law did not stop (or even affected) the progression of racism — a progression that Black Lives Matter activists are currently fighting. No wonder Black Lives Matter activists look to Malcolm X for inspiration as much as any leader in US history. No wonder his speeches and insights remain relevant to progressives today on his birthday.
