I completely agree with his cause, and would have done the same thing but terrorists are villains.

Yep
Then why make a thread with a misleading title? You could have had a discussion about him then advertised it.

I don't know much about him apart from his Nation of Islam connections and people seem to bum him out even though he was racist to them. Same with Muhammed Ali.

I am in two minds - It is not surprising how he turned out considering the slow pace of the civil rights movement in the 60's and the horrors he endured as a child - However I do not think fighting hate with hate is ever an answer.

what did malcom x stand for
The X (originally little) stood for the lost identity of the black slaves. He himself stood for black pride and separation over integration, he also disliked Martin Luther King. In his later life he did consider integration an option after his hajj (pilgrimage to Mecca)

A real hero. He was one of the most remarkable political orators of the 20th century. A man who did not depart from principle nor fall short of the morals expected of a civil rights leader.

Ultimately he started of as a radical, but over time he began to change his approach on accept integration.

He spoke out to many Afro-Americans in a way that MLK never achieved. It was so sad that he was murdered.

Outstanding man, definitely a born leader. I also disagree with all of those who say they dislike people who fight hatred with hatred. I believe that everything he did he had a right to do so and did it in the best manner he possibly could. The America then was disgusting and many parts of that society still is.

The fact that he wanted African Americans to not wait for the white people to over come their hatred and disgust for coloured people unlike Martin Luther King. Rather than wait he wanted them to take what was rightly theirs.
Where as Martin Luther King Who is no doubt being promoted as the Force for the civil rights movement what a joke(I am assuming he is being promoted far more due to him being a Christian and a huge lover of those people who generally dislike black people). When we all know Malcom X stood for something white America disliked a Black man or in the case of America "Negro" who saw the long term goal rather than a quick fix which Martin Luther King was searching for.

In his later years, his complete self. Although I agree with 'some' of what he said in his early days.

He was one of the most influential men in history.

His Autobiography is an absolute must read! Definately my favourite non-fiction piece of literature.
