I could care less about Malcolm X

Reader comment on item: A History of Muslim Terrorism against Jews in the United States
in response to reader comment: Dar al Islam vs Dar al Harb

Since someone mentioned Malcolm X and his assassination by the henchmen of "Calypso Louie" (for real?), I wonder why Malcolm X became an American icon. His autobiography screams about Christianity as the slave owner's religion, but he himself bought into the slave raider's religion--and the religion which abolished slavery only because Christian powers practiced a bit of gunboat diplomacy on them! Frankly, I think Malcolm X was a combination of con-man and dupe.
