Louis Farrakhan: I Did NOT Murder Malcolm X
Louis Farrakhan says that he is not responsible for the death of the late Malcolm X. Malcolm X was a Muslim minister and human rights activist. He was killed on February 21, 1965, as he was preparing to address the OAAU in Manhattan’s Audubon Ballroom. He was 39. Three gunmen, Nation of Islam members Talmadge Hayer (also known as Thomas Hagan), Norman 3X Butler and Thomas 15X Johnson were convicted of Malcolm’s murder.
Fast forward to the present day and Farrakhan wants people to know that he had nothing to do with Malcolm’s death. He says,
I did not kill Malcolm X. The enemy is so frightened that Black people listen to Farrakhan that they put it out that Farrakhan had something to do with the murder of Malcolm X. This is how wicked the media is. Don’t you know as much as they hate me, if they had any proof that I did something like that, don’t you know they would take me off the street in the twinkling of an eye and bury me under the jail?
I had nothing to do with my brother’s death, but I am what I am because I am a good student. I learned a lot from Brother Malcolm, but the teacher of both Malcolm, Muhammad Ali, myself and thousands of others is the Honorable Elijah Muhammad and I would hope that you will all get more acquainted with the Honorable Elijah Muhammad because God gifted us with a great man in our midst.
Today marks the 53 year anniversary of Malcolm X’s assassination.
