We should not argue arguing about what scholar lived when and what religious political figure lived. Scholars like John Henrik Clark and Dr Diop where alive while Elijah Mohammed was alive and knew the man. Elijah Mohammad was a religious figure not scientific. He did use Sciences and and more psuedo-science like any religion uses to show that Black people in American where second to none and great strides where made by these men yes but there is a huge HUGE difference between a religious figure and a scholar. Malcolm X who is widely known is not a scholar, he was a political figure and a religious leader. While these are important roles in the evolution of a people. Science and Scholarly Studies prove what religious and politicians exaggerate about for there own cause. All respect to Elijah Mohammed and Louis Farrakhan. They are not Scientists They are Theologians of there own Religion.
