Malcolm X: Resisting colonialism | New York Amsterdam News: The new Black view

Having implemented the “back to Africa” philosophy from his Garveyite upbringing, along El Hajj Malik El Shabazz’s global travels he had personally met and formed alliances with “11 heads of state from Africa, Che Guevara and Fidel Castro,” reflects Malcolm’s comrade, Brother Abdullah Abdur-Razzaq, formerly known as Lieutenant James 67X in the Nation of Islam’s Temple No. 7 in Harlem.Gathering on an almost biweekly basis at the Audubon, the O.A.A.U. meetings strategized the processes of coming up with solutions to the problems they faced.”The newly awakened people all over the world pose a problem for what’s known as Western interests–which is imperialism, colonialism, racism and all these other negative isms or vulturistic isms. Just as the external forces pose a grave threat, they can now see that the internal forces pose an even greater threat. But the internal forces pose an even greater threat only when they have properly analyzed the situation and know what the stakes really are,” he said.
