There's a little 'Malcolm X' in all of Us.
Well, based on a psychodynamic approach. But most importantly though, on the Humanistic approach [on individuals' personality]. This is very True.
The authentic figure, whom I never shy off bringing up in some of my intellectual conversations, not just cuz we share a birth date (19th, May), but for who he really was- a Being highly favored by God.
In a very broad collective consciousness, to date, was in such a high plateau- position of power- for what he spoke about, how he said it too. Without fear of taking anything back!
The late Maya Angelou (R.I.P) once pointed out whenever he rose to speak, the crowd always first showered him with shouts and praises. He would stand there, take his dues then commence to the 'day's business'. No doubt that he gave the People so much Love, that's why, I believe, he earned it! That was his version of love though, don't get me wrong- I'm taking a scholarly approach on this matter. Take this in too- I Love & Respect his Legacy.
When he's about 40 and Muhammad Ali 22, they meet up and he psychologically prepares the young Cassius Clay. Both were close friends. Ali was still a kid.
The young boxer highly enthusiastic, a poet as well sets to take down Sonny Liston on a Historic match.
X accepts the invitation to watch the game...
Clay's superior speed, mobility, techniques & repeated jabs matched the talk he was bringing up about the fight.
Malcolm was on seat 7 when this kid knocked down his opponent on the seventh round.
I'm trying to #makeitplain
, Malcolm didn't like a lot of glorification.
Forever in History, Muhammad Ali's one great regret: turning his back on Malcolm X...It's all 💙
