Over the May 18-19 weekend the Detroit Museum of African American History (MAAH ) will be celebrating the 88th birthday of Malcolm X who was born May 19, 1925 and killed February 21, 1965. Cheap cialis no prescription, On Saturday the film Make it Plain will be shown, and my old friend University of Massachusetts Professor Bill Strickland will be speaking, generic cialis cheap. Discount cialis,
Sunday afternoon I will speak briefly about why honoring Malcolm in the 21st century has become so important.
Most people associate Malcolm with violence, compare cialis prices. Buy discount cialis, But Malcolm’s unique power came not from physical weapons but from his courage and skill in speaking the truths that empower us to go beyond viewing ourselves as victims . He was always challenging us to look in the mirror and accept responsibility for our pain and suffering instead of looking for others to blame, buy cialis super active without prescription.
Thus, order discount cialis online, Cialis professional, after the assassination of President Kennedy in November 1963, Malcolm
said “The chickens have come home to roost.”
Malcolm’s comment involved only seven words but those seven words were dangerous because they called upon us, price of cialis, Cialis india, the American people, to recognize and take responsibility for the terrorism that people all over the world have been experiencing as a result of our government’s foreign policies, cialis. Order cialis, In fact, Malcolm’s few words were so dangerous that Nation of Islam leader Elijah Muhammad suspended him for uttering them, buy cialis online australia, Find cheap cialis online, fearful that they would bring the wrath of the authorities down on the organization.
In the 21st century, cialis discount, Sale cialis, since 911, we have been living in fear of terrorists, cialis bangkok, Cialis no online prescription, without acknowledging that (as Noam Chomsky put it recently) the U.S. is the world’s top terrorist state, cheap cialis online. Buy cialis super active without prescription, Honoring Malcolm in the 21st century is also important because it is in this century that the American Dream has died , challenging us to create a new dream. Purchase cialis, This challenge was one of Malcolm‘s most important contributions. I can still see people at his meetings squirming with discomfort as he chided us for our continuing dependence on status quo institutions instead of creating our own, order cialis in us.
If Malcolm were alive today, I am confident that he would be warning us against trying to discover Muslim connections for the Boston Marathon bombing suspects.
He would be urging us instead to acknowledge that we are enjoying our comforts and conveniences at the expense of people all over the world and that the chickens
have come home to roost.
If we do not listen to Malcolm and keep looking for “others” to blame, we will be creating a nightmare for ourselves, giving up our inalienable right to life, liberty and pursuit of happiness in defense of a terrorist state, buy cialis super active without prescription.
In Detroit especially I believe Malcolm would be challenging us to go beyond protesting the Emergency Financial Manager and suggesting that we encourage grassroots neighborhood organizations to form a Council to govern the city.
We/they are already beginning to create a new post-industrial society:
• Creating community safety by looking out for each other.
• Growing our own food,
• Using new methods of local, small-scale production (such as 3-D printing) to produce our own clothing, housing transportation
• Creating community-based schools to educate our children,
• Practicing restorative justice with neighborhood offenders.
Forming a Council to govern ourselves is the next step!.
