Malcolm X’s International Footprint
by Gaspar Yanga
July 26, 2014
Malcolm X, was one of the greatest thinkers and intellects of the 21st century. His ability to analyze both the African and European world is something to truly be commended. Malcolm X’s ability to disseminate history, current events into well thought out opinions is something that is sorely lacking today. Malcolm X’s intellect allowed him to leave an international footprint, his sincere naive love of African people and trusting of White Arabs from North Africa led to a premature death. Even though he would have either been killed or put in prison sooner or late.
I firmly believe, that if Malcolm X had lived longer, he would have left Islam, one of the things that we now know from Manning Marables propagandist book Malcolm X: A Life of Reinvention. Is that Malcolm X, was manipulated by White Islamized Arabs into a false image of Islamic Arabia. Malcolm X, a multi racial man, whom many would classify as Black/African, was not treated like an ordinary Black Muslims or Mixed Raced majority African DNA Muslim would be treated. The US State Department, l with longstanding ties to Egypt, told them to make sure Malcolm X was treated well and to hide any form racism towards Blacks from him.
Malcolm X, during this trip was blocked from seeing the poor treatment of Africans, nor do I believe he was well read enough yet on Islam and Arabias role in the destruction of Black Africans. Malcolm X, on this trip nearly died, he had to get his stomach pumped because he was poisoned, after Malcolm X, healed up he tried to enter France, he was denied. Malcolm X, because of his international speeches which condemned and warned of Western Hegemony, became marked for death.
Brown Africans from the Congo, while giving a UN speech, begin to criticize the United States in the United Nations. A Conoglese Official, said that the United States bombs Black people in the Congo as they did Black people in Mississippi. Malcolm X, had did something that, no one has bothered to do since. He was able to tear down the borders created by Europeans in the minds of an African in other nation, and bridge them into one group both looking after the internationally well being of both. This scared the United States and the EU. Marcus Garvey, said the reason why Europeans wanted to disassociate Westernized Africans with those on the Continent because that group would become a threat to Western US/EU Hegemony.
Malcolm X, was the first mixed race man from out of Africa , to be allowed into the OAU in Africa. The OAU, typically blocked access to their private meetings only to Africans. Malcolm X, was allowed in and participated. It was said that Malcolm X had the support of 22 African Heads of State in taking the USA to task for its mistreatment of Africans in the Western Hemisphere. President of Uganda, Idi Amin, even offered Malcolm X a position in his government and created the Malcolm X Plan. Many other African leaders told Malcolm X, that he should remain with them in Africa and to forget America. Malcolm X, chose to comeback to the USA, and he set up the OAAU, with Professor John Henrike Clarke.
The OAAU, was founded June 24, 1964. It was patterned after the OAU in Africa. The purpose of the OAAU was to fight for the human rights of African Americans and promote cooperation among Africans and the African peoples in the Americas. Malcolm X, was not trying to draw black people near Arabs. He was by his naive nature, thinking about possibly allowing White Arab Muslims in the organization but he was completely against White Americans joining him. He said the problem was Whites and they would be better served fighting racism in their communities vs. trying to take over and manipulate his organization.
The OAAU Program was as follwing: (written by John Henrike Clarke):
- Restoration: “In order to release ourselves from the oppression of our enslavers then, it is absolutely necessary for the Afro-American to restore communication with Africa.”
- Reorientation: “We can learn much about Africa by reading informative books.”
- Education: “The Organization of Afro-American Unity will devise original educational methods and procedures which will liberate the minds of our children. We will … encourage qualified Afro-Americans to write and publish the textbooks needed to liberate our minds … educating them [our children] at home.”
- Economic Security: “After the Emancipation Proclamation … it was realized that the Afro-American constituted the largest homogeneous ethnic group with a common origin and common group experience in the United States and, if allowed to exercise economic or political freedom, would in a short period of time own this country. We must establish a technician bank. We must do this so that the newly independent nations of Africa can turn to us who are their brothers for the technicians they will need now and in the future.”
Malcolm X and John Henrike Clarke, saw it as vital that Afro-Americans restore communication with AFRICA. His program died when he died, and no African person has even attempted to sincerely establish the type of ties with African in the same manner as Malcolm X, but those were different times and it is probably far more dangerous because in the 1960s, Africans leaders were fighting European oppression today they are helping the Europeans oppress Africans. (IRONY).
The international paranoia that Malcolm X gave the United States is the primary reason that today you have the token gains that the USA Government is giving you. LBJ, established the Kerner Commission to see how to give African Americans the illusions of inclusive while keeping them maintained to the American mainland. Because a group of organized disgruntled African Americans united with African Caribbean looking to Africa vs. looking to them for support economically, politically and socially would mean a decline is European hegemony over African people.
“The last thing the White man wants you to do, is to start thinking Internationally. He will integrate with you before he lets you go free” Malcolm X
The European Americans fought a war to consolidate power. In 1968, the racist Whites of American, realized that the USA could splinter off into two separate Nations. And this would be a damaging for them. So they had to thin of a way to maintain racist control over Black people, yet make it look as if they are advancing and if they fail it is their faults because Whites were simply misguided people and that they really didn’t mean all the horrible things they done. And as Alex Jones said, why should White children feel guilty about something they didnt personally do themselves. (YEAH RIGHT)

STUDY RESPONSE TO PRESIDENTIAL SECURITY REVIEW MEMORANDUM NSC-46 BLACK AFRICA AND THE U.S. BLACK MOVEMENT
Objective of our policy toward Black Africa is to prevent social upheavals which could radically change the political situation throughout the area. The success or failure of our policy in the region depends on the solution international and internal issues whose importance of the United States is on the increase.
II. A. U.S. INTERESTS IN BLACK AFRICA
A multiplicity of interests influences the U.S. attitude toward black Africa. The most important of these interests can be summarized as follows:
If black African states assume attitudes hostile to the U.S. national interest, our policy toward the white regimes; which is a key element in our relations with the black states, may be subjected by the latter to great pressure for fundamental change. Thus the West may face a real danger of being deprived of access to the enormous raw material resources of southern Africa which are vital for our defense needs as well as losing control over the Cape sea routes by which approximately 65% of Middle Eastern oil is supplied to Western Europe.
Moreover, such a development may bring about internal political difficulties by intensifying the activity of the Black movement in the United States itself. It should also be borne in mind that black Africa is an integral part of a continent where tribal and regional discord, economic backwardness, inadequate infrastructures, drought, and famine, are constant features of the scene. In conjunction with the artificial borders imposed by the former colonial powers, guerilla warfare in Rhodesia and widespread indignation against apartheid in South Africa, the above factors provide the communist states with ample opportunities for furthering their aims. This must necessarily redound to the detriment of U.S. political interests.
Black Africa is increasingly becoming an outlet for U.S. exports and investment. The mineral resources of the area continue to be of great value for the normal functioning of industry in the United States and allied countries. In 1977, U.S. direct investment in black Africa totaled about $1.8 billion and exports $2.2 billion. New prospect of substantial profits would continue to develop in the countries concerned.
IV. BLACK AFRICA AND THE U.S. BLACK MOVEMENT
Apart from the above-mentioned factors adverse to U.S. strategic interests, the nationalist liberation movement in black Africa can act as a catalyst with far reaching effects on the American black community by stimulating its organizational consolidation and by inducing radical actions. Such a result would be likely as Zaire went the way of Angola and Mozambique.
An occurrence of the events of *1967-68 would do grievous harm to U.S. prestige, especially in view of the concern of the present Administration with human rights issues. Moreover, the Administration would have to take specific steps to stabilize the situation. Such steps might be misunderstood both inside and outside the United States.
In order to prevent such a trend and protect U.S. national security interests, it would appear essential to elaborate and carry out effective countermeasures. 1. Possibility of Joint Action By U.S. Black and African Nationalist Movement. In elaborating U.S. policy toward black Africa, due weight must be given to the fact that there are 25 millions American blacks whose roots are African and who consciously or subconsciously sympathies with African nationalism. The living conditions of the black population should also be taken into account. Immense advances in the field are accompanied by a long-lasting high rate of unemployment, especially among the youth and by poverty and dissatisfaction with government social welfare standards. These factors taken together may provide a basis for joint actions of a concrete nature by the African nationalist movement and the U.S. black community… renewal of the extremist national idea of establishing an “African Republic” on American soil. Finally, leftist radical elements of the Black community could resume extremist actions in the style of the defunct Black Panther Party. … Basically, actions would take the form of demonstrations and public protests, but the likelihood of violence cannot be excluded. There would also be attempts to coordinate their political activity both locally and in international organizations.
In the context of long-term strategy, the United States can not afford a radical change in the fundamentals of its African policy, which is designed for maximum protection of national security. In the present case, emphasis is laid on the importance of Black Africa for U.S. political, economic and military interests.
In weighing the range of U.S. interests in Black Africa, basic recommendations arranged without intent to imply priority are: 1. Specific steps should be taken with the help of appropriate government agencies to inhibit coordinated activity of the Black Movement in the United States. 2. Special clandestine operations should be launched by the CIA to generate mistrust and hostility in American and world opinion against joint activity of the two forces, and to cause division among Black African radical national groups and their leaders. 3. U.S. embassies to Black African countries specially interested in southern Africa must be highly circumspect in view of the activity of certain political circles and influential individuals opposing the objectives and methods of U.S. policy toward South Africa. It must be kept in mind that the failure of U.S. strategy in South Africa would adversely affect American standing throughout the world. In addition, this would mean a significant diminution of U.S. influence in Africa and the emergence of new difficulties in our internal situation due to worsening economic prospects. 4. The FBI should mount surveillance operations against Black African representatives and collect sensitive information on those, especially at the U.N., who oppose U.S. policy toward South Africa. The information should include facts on their links with the leaders of the Black movement in the United States, thus making possible at least partial neutralization of the adverse effects of their activity.
B. THE RANGE OF POLICY OPTIONS
The concern for the future security of the United States makes necessary the range of policy options. Arranged without intent imply priority they are: (a) to enlarge programs, within the framework of the present budget, for the improvement of the social and economic welfare of American Blacks in order to ensure continuing development of present trends in the Black movement; (b) to elaborate and bring into effect a special program designed to perpetuate division in the Black movement and neutralize the most active groups of leftist radical organizations representing different social strata of the Black community: to encourage division in Black circles; (c) to preserve the present climate which inhibits the emergence from within the Black leadership of a person capable of exerting nationwide appeal; (d) to work out and realize preventive operations in order to impede durable ties between U.S Black organizations and radical groups in African states; e) to support actions designed to sharpen social stratification in the Black community which would lead to the widening and perpetuation of the gap between successful educated Blacks and the poor, giving rise to growing antagonism between different Black groups and a weakening of the movement as a whole. (f) to facilitate the greatest possible expansion of Black business by granting government contracts and loans with favorable terms to Black businessmen; (g) to take every possible means through the AFL-CIO leaders to counteract the increasing influence of Black labor organizations which function in all m”ajor unions and in particular, the National Coalition of Black Trade Union and its leadership including the creation of real preference for adverse and hostile reaction among White trade unionists to demands for improvement of social and economic welfare of the Blacks; (h) to support the nomination at federal and local levels of loyal Black public figures to elective offices, to government agencies and the Court.
“to preserve the present climate which inhibits the emergence from within the Black leadership of a person capable of exerting nationwide appeal; (d) to work out and realize preventive operations in order to impede durable ties between U.S Black organizations and radical groups in African states; e) to support actions designed to sharpen social stratification in the Black community which would lead to the widening and perpetuation of the gap between successful educated Blacks and the poor, giving rise to growing antagonism between different Black groups and a weakening of the movement as a whole”
Barack Obama (non African), Colin Powell (non African) and Condi Rice were no mistakes. Malcolm X is not an African, but he was a man with an African father, a mulatto mother who was the product of a rape what was unfortunate. Malcolm X never grew up in a household where he had some European family. It still does not make him a Black/African per say but he was apart of the African experience genuinely and not like a Obama, Zaza Ali or another other mulatto faker.
Malcolm X long lasting legacy is the international foot print that he made with other African people. The possibility of African Cooperation in the overthrow of European Hegemony. 22 African Heads of State willing to stand by the Africans of the Americas. This is what we should take and everything should simply be analyzed, learned from and moved upon from. This will be the key to our freedom. International African Centered Biological Nationalist Collective Communalism. Not Marxist- Leninst Ideology, not Assimilation, and not multiracial groups. But a singular ACBN International Collective of Brown African peoples!
