According to author Peter Louis Goldman, who published The Death and Life of Malcom X (1979), in the alleged single meeting in which Civil Rights leader MLK met the Nation of Islam’s Elijah Muhammad, Dr. King asked Elijah: do you really believe all white people are snakes?
“Dr. King, we are both Southern men. We know that there are grass snakes, that are harmlessless and there are rattle snakes, that are poisonous. But both are snakes.” Muhammad is quoted as replying.
“There is only 1 political party in America: they are white, and they, whether Democrats or Republicans, are both devils. Keep the movement alive.” – NBFSN Cedishon Angelou
