What would Malcolm X and Dr. King Say About Covid-19 and Vaccines?

There’s been a number of times over the years when a current event at the time prompted me to ponder, ‘What would Malcolm X say about this? What would be his take? The same holds true with Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. What would they make of, say, the coronavirus or COVID-19 vaccines? Had they not been assassinated, would they have been out front encouraging black people to take the vaccines?  Or seen taking the jab in photo-up like fashion like Rev. Al Sharpton? Would Malcolm have been kind to all the black celebrities who were front and center encouraging blacks to get vaccinated? Would they have questioned the origin of these viruses? Surely they would have been all over the mysterious appearance of AIDS in Africa, and the 26 million Africans who died from AIDS after Hilary Koprowski’s polio vaccines. Surely Brother Malcolm’s keen perceptive, and analytical mind would have instinctively read foul play into all of the alphabet soup viruses.

But unfortunately we don’t have leaders and men of the caliber of Malcolm X and Martin Luther King anymore. And we don’t have leaders bold enough to challenge the power structure and the bogus prevailing narrative. Were Malcolm alive, he would put the spotlight on Francis Boyle and Boyle’s claim that coronavirus is the result of biological warfare. Dr. King surely would challenge the morality of a nation that would look the other way as unscrupulous scientists and mega pharmaceutical elites plotted ways to profit off human death, illness and misery. He certainly would have validated the allegations of Dr. David E. Martin. They would have stood up, strong. I heard a modern day griot say the other day that when we call upon our ancestors for support and guidance, we are not calling upon dead spirits but living ones; That we carry the spirit of Malcolm X, Dr. King, Harriett Tubman, the spirit off Patrice Lumumba and other freedom-fighting ancestors with us. They’re right there with us, wherever we go, whenever we’re in a tight spot and dealing with oppression and systemic racism. They’re with us. Let us be bold then, and challenge those that need to be challenged.
