Malcolm’s Religion and Elijah’s Religion

Posted by Jack Stephens on August 20, 2007

Michael Fisher, on the blog The Assault on Black Folk’s Sanity, writes about Malcolm X and his religious views after breaking with Elijah Muhammad and the Nation of Islam:

Therefore, from the point of view of a White Supremacist, given the political content of Elijah Muhammad’s religion and that of Malcolm’s religion, which political content of which religion, Elijah’s or Malcolm’s would be less dangerous to the white supremacist?

I would argue that it would be that of Malcolm’s for it provides an “in” to what otherwise under Elijah would potentially have been a system which at the very least theoretically closed the white supremacists’ access to the minds of black people.

Under the system of White Supremacy the political content of Malcolm’s religion, I would argue, is less than useless. It is dangerous to black people. First, as we already know, the existence of “good” white people is, on balance, thoroughly irrelevant. In fact, an ally without power is a liability.
