Identitarian unity photo: American Nazis at a Nation of Islam rally


In "Bigotry and the English Language", Ta-Nehisi Coates notes that Nazi George Rockwell praised the Nation of Islam for having...
gathered millions of the dirty, immoral, drunken, filthy-mouthed, lazy and repulsive people sneeringly called ‘niggers’ and inspired them to the point where they are clean, sober, honest, hard working, dignified, dedicated and admirable human beings in spite of their color.
Historically, segregationists approve of segregationists. I wish I could find a picture of Marcus Garvey's meeting with a head of the Ku Klux Klan. Garvey said, "I regard the Klan, the Anglo-Saxon clubs and White American societies, as far as the Negro is concerned, as better friends of the race than all other groups of hypocritical whites put together. I like honesty and fair play. You may call me a Klansman if you will, but, potentially, every white man is a Klansman, as far as the Negro in competition with whites socially, economically and politically is concerned, and there is no use lying."

If you're a Critical Race Theorist, you may be inclined to agree with him. But if you do, you'll be at odds with W.E.B. DuBois, who said, "Marcus Garvey is the most dangerous enemy of the Negro race in America and in the world."

And this is probably a good time to repeat what Malcolm X realized after he left the Nation of Islam:
I believe in recognizing every human being as a human being–neither white, black, brown, or red; and when you are dealing with humanity as a family there’s no question of integration or intermarriage. It’s just one human being marrying another human being or one human being living around and with another human being.
