I know what Malcolm X would have done. Actually, Trayvon probably wouldn't have laid a knuckle on Malcolm. Malcolm would have slapped him silly and thrown his hoodie in the trash. Malcolm is like Jesus, you see. You see his pictures everywhere, and everybody basically worships him, but nobody ever really thinks about what he said or did. It was a long time ago, so Malcolm did complain about unfair treatment of Blacks on the part of the authorities and other people, but as far as I can remember, he never once recommended that Blacks respond by behaving like hooligans. On the contrary, he was a separatist because he wanted Blacks to be under the authority of other Blacks like himself and actually work to improve themselves, no matter who was responsible for their condition in the first place. He set himself apart from the mainstream Black movement precisely because he wan't into whining about past injustices and asking for freebies. And he was right. Fifty years of whining and begging has produced far too many Black hooligans and con men, fatherless kids and welfare dependency.
And Malcolm might have gone to visit Trayvon's father and slapped him silly for bringing up a hooligan kid. He was into self-reliance and responsible behavior. Seems like Spike Lee might have picked some of that up while making the movie, but evidently not. Whining and begging is the order of the day.
