Malcolm X and the KKK

In this powerful 1964 interview, Malcolm X sets forth his plans to take the fight to the Ku Klux Klan and other entities that were terrorizing black Americans in the Deep South. During the interview, Malcolm X hints at the truly game-changing role that whites under his leadership would have played in bringing about a revolution in America.

Unlike the white liberal freedom riders of the ‘integrationist’ civil rights movement (who largely confined themselves to ineffectual non-violent tactics), Malcolm X would have used his army of white revolutionary disciples to infiltrate the KKK, the White Citizens Councils and even the FBI and CIA in order to gather intelligence and counter their unlawful efforts to subvert black Americans in their struggle for human rights (7:43). This paradigm-shifting initiative would have been nothing less than a ‘COINTELPRO-in-reverse’.

Such a game-changing insurgent alliance under Malcolm’s genius leadership would have produced a tactical and strategic bond between black and white Americans on an infinitely more intimate and profound level than that which was achieved by the black and white integrationists under the leadership of Martin Luther King Jr.

It also points to the role that white activists in the post-Ferguson era could yet play in the social insurgency against racial profiling, police brutality and other forms of persecution. Today’s white revolutionary disciples of Malcolm X are uniquely placed to go ‘behind enemy lines’ and infiltrate corrupt police departments and federal agencies like the FBI and CIA in order to counter their unlawful efforts to subvert ordinary Americans in the 21st century.

2015 will mark the 50th anniversary of the brutal assassination of Malcolm X and we are calling on President Barack Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder to publish all federal government files and records, without alteration or redaction, relating to the 1965 crime.
