    Quoted :

    "YES. I find the painting of Dr King as "gentle" and "humble and "peaceful" to be a white-washing of history. It's taking his story, removing any traces of anger & radical action, and selling it as part inspiration, part warning. Malcolm X is the reverse, where his story has been painted as so dark and angry that he's "bad". It feels like a coded message to the African American population: if you are gentle & quiet you will be rewarded, but if you are in any way angry about your forced-lesser status you will be punished.

    "Our nation’s Eurocentric historical narratives continue to do their work to a man who was, in his time, one of the foremost threats to structural racism and inequality. "

    As a consequence that threat was precisely why he was assassinated. The empire understands that it's existence depends on imposition of control by force and violence, and a threat to that control becomes a threat to empire, regardless of the moral power of that threat.

    Dr King as promoted anger & radical action.  Malcolm X was the reverse, yet he is the man whose story has been painted as so dark and angry that he's "bad". IDr King was a brave and brilliant radical revolutionary, and it frustrates some people that his story has been repackaged into such a clean narrative for the sake of not challenging the white status quo.
