Malcolm X was GAY.  Which blacks refer to as "the down low".
After leaving the Nation of Islam, X became a marked man, literally marked with an X. The Nation of Islam showed that they were NOT a religion of peace and were literally subhuman, torching his house to the ground. They had tried to wire explosives to his car and set his house on fire on many occasions. Finally it was time to X him out. They sent in a group of assassins to shoot X to death, much like I will do to anyone who breaks into my house. He died on the spot, and X marked the spot where he died at age 39, leaving a black widow, 3 black children, and one half-black, half-white child named Barry X.
