Not big on tin hat theories but this is uncanny

Posted by   + Show Post

Just read an article about Malcom X possibly being Obama's father.   Got it in an email and went to read the article and this is the pic in the article.  They do look a hell of a lot alike.

Just an fyi, I think that is actually Denzel Washington when he portrayed Malcolm X in the Spike Lee movie.

Quoting Citygirlk:

oh and for the record these two do not look alike even if you put glasses on Obama, and Malcolm is much more handsome.

It's not racist to suggest one person looks like another.  Or to suggest that one person might be related to another.  There's nothing discriminatory in the OP.  Now, having said that...

Malcolm X was, at the time of Obama's conception, absolutely opposed to the integration of blacks and whites.  He went so far to say that we should be separated into different countries until all blacks could get back to Africa.  To him, white people were the devil.  He was also married, and in the Nation of Islam, adultery was a huge no-no.  Some say that one of the main reasons X broke from the group was because of rumors that the leader was having a lot of affairs.

Personally, I think the resemblance is uncanny, but I also doubt there is any relation based on Malcolm X's open hatred of white people.

You don't have to be judgmental and be like "Oh, he's using his freedom the wrong way!  I want him to use his freedom the way I use my freedom!"  You can't do that. You have to be tolerant.  People say "Oh no, you can't be tolerant. What if they do something you don't like?" Tolerance does not mean endorsement.  -- Ron Paul

While I do not think that all black men look alike nor have I ever inferred the same, I will take offense "sweety". Did you not notice that I had written "I think"? There was no need for a snotty response.

Since you've told me that the photo is Malcolm X, the photo comparison should be between Malcolm and Denzel, not Malcolm and Obama.

Thanks sweet-a-kins. Denzel certainly resembles him more than Obama!

I know! Perfect casting. Not to mention that Denzel is an awesome actor. I always forget that I'm watching him and only focus on his character.
