In November we can vote out those politicians who wrsp themselves in a flag of patriotism to hide their insatiable greed....for oil or power or money. Malcom X was deemed a radical in his day because he represented a minority. But he spoke for a majority.

I agree w/ carbunclefrank, Malcom X did speak for a majority.
