He is often one of the more misunderstood people in American history. There were points in his life were he was really radical and said some pretty bad stuff (while with the Nation of Islam, which was kind of pulling his strings). However, after taking a pilgrimage to Mecca, he realized how profound racial harmony is. In Mecca, he met people of all skin colors and backgrounds, and since then, he identified racism as not just a black and white issue, but a universal issue.
One of my favorite quotes from him is "It's not a case of being a good or bad black or white person, it's a case of being a good or bad human being."

>The African continent was one of the richest in the world
And America was a boondocks with a bunch of primitive Indians. Also, if you think that all Egyptians lived like pharaons on the pictures from your schoolbook, you're terribly wrong.
>The reason Africa is in such poverty right now is because Europe colonized it and left it not intact.
Yeah, inglorious barbarians brought culture, medicaments and supplies, left schools and hospitals. What a guile!
>Frederick Douglass and Malcolm X come to mind. And Toni Morrison
Lol, all three were Afro-Americans.

However, it hard to deny that the european colonization was detrimental to their economy. Zimbabwe (i dont remember the name before that) was once the bread basket in the world and South Africa boasted one of the strongest economies and both nations were under direct British rule. I'm not saying this because I'm some racist guy, but if you are to look at the facts, Africa was at height of its power in modern history due to colonization.

I can't name a lot of them only two came tomy mind Amadou Hampaté Ba (who is more of an historian ) and Kocc Barma (senegalese philosopher.
Now do not forget that Africans favored oral communication and didn't have written langages. You were taught philosophy through tales and stories.

I understood that.
i just wanted to point out that African philisophers won't be very well known because the african philosophy exist through tales and stories passed down from elders to young ones. So basically every elder was considered a wise man / philosopher in africa because they were responsible of teaching thoses stories to the youngsters.

Actually they're pretty efficient and do cover mental health aspects as swell. New York actually passed a law in conjunction with their new S.A.F.E act that allows people to be allowed to buy a firearm even if they sought to seek help. That is how strict it was/is to a point where if you just ask for help you could be denied. It also is based on the shop owner's decision too. It can be denied to anyone legally if they feel the person might be an endangerment but cannot be biased of gender, race, nationality, ect.

Most mentally insane people getting a hold of firearms is most often by stealing them from family members (such as Adam Lanza). And as far as kids getting a hold of firearms and hurting themselves, it is largely due to parents leaving firearms out in the open or other irresponsible actions. Personally, I keep all my firearms locked in a safe which removes the possibility of anyone but myself getting a hold of them.
