Re: Make peace with reality

Malcolm X, Elijah Muhammad before him, Marcus Garvey before they, Noble Drew Ali before that, have all essentially doctored ancient African history to favor modern blacks. All these men were great leaders themselves and only sought to instill national pride through historic context in the people they led. However black nationalists have oft been known to tell artfully antiqued lies. The problem with bogus, albeit prodigious, history is that it never happened. African Americans must make peace with reality and not find comfort within prideful falsehoods a pride built on artificiality will not withstand the harsh tests of time.
