Fred Siegel’s The Revolt Against the Masses

[Malcom Little] “A bisexual hustler and small-time hoodlum, Malcom X found strength is the black nationalism preached by Nation of Islam, an idiosyncratic American break-off from orthodox Islam. Elijah Muhammad, the leader of the Nation of Islam spoke of the “home country” as a locale where blacks and Muslims ruled, and where the white man was despised as a devil, a snake who alone accounted for all black ills.” The Revolt Against the Masses, copyright © 2013 by Fred Siegel, Encounter Books, Page 133.

“Malcom X, who had become an orthodox Muslim, was murdered by gunmen connected to the Nation of Islam.” The Revolt Against the Masses, copyright © 2013 by Fred Siegel, Encounter Books, Page 134.
