Autobiography of Malcolm X quote

I thought of you, dear reader, when I read this quote from “The Autobiography of Malcolm X” by MALCOLM X, M. S. Handler – “it didn’t take long to loosen up the dancing instincts in my African heritage.” Start reading this book for free: https://a.co/3HUE3Fv

Hmm. “African heritage.” Is it this easy to slip into a racist trope, or was he being sarcastic?

Of course, this is only chapter 4, so what do I know?


Er… and a few paragraphs on:

«Whites are correct in thinking that black people are natural dancers.»
