“I observed first-hand how the Nazi Poison transformed decent, caring, reasonable men and women into fanatical racists who approved the destruction of anyone and anything that did not conform to their vision of the world.”
– Hans-Jurgen Massaquoi, former Editor-in-Chief of Ebony Magazine
Hans-Jurgen Massaquoi was one of the few Blacks in Germany during Hitler’s rise to power. He was born in 1926 in the port city of Hamburg, Germany to a white German mother, Bertha Baetz, and Al-Haj Massaquoi, a Liberian businessman and Muslim. Massaquoi found out quickly that being Black was not compatible with the “vision” that Hitler had for Germany at that moment in history. In the 1950s, Hans-Jurgen Massaquoi emigrated to the United States where he became the editor-in-chief for Ebony Magazine, one of the LEADING African-American Magazines of All Time!
It is not a stretch to compare the Nazi Poison of Adolf Hitler with the modern day white supremacist hate speech promoted by Donald J. Trump. Prior to the massacre of muslims in New Zealand the murderer praised Trump for promoting white supremacy.
It has happened again! Another Mass shooting. 50 Muslims murdered! Many kneeling in prayer – shot in the back! I recently said on comrademalik.com that I was going through something but did not elaborate.
On March 8th, 2019, a womyn who is dying of Cancer was denied one final HUG with her son who happens to be incarcerated here with me! I had been helping them and advocating on their behalf. Paulina Gracia who has an aggressive form of Leukemia was told by the prison administrators here to come on and visit, they said they would allow her to hug her son. Then at the very last moment, they canceled the visit!!! That Hurt! It hurt all of us. All you can ask is WHY? Would this one HUG damage the Prison Agencies reputation?? NO, it would not. But then, look who is leading this campaign for Humyn Rights??!!
It is I the Muslim Activist known as Comrade Malik! AND THE WHITE SUPREMACIST PRISON OFFICIALS HATE ME! So my friends Miguel and Paulina – suffered! This is not my Vision of Love! A week later on March 15th, 2019 an Australian man, a white man, who subscribes to White Nationalism and embraces White Supremacy goes into two mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand and he executes 50 of my Muslim brothers and sisters!! He murders them in cold blood. This senseless act of violence is as hurtful to me as the tragedy which took place at the Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh!!
Personally, I am really not caught up on focusing on whether the victims are Jewish, Muslim or Christians – they were all Humyn beings! No-one should be fearful in the place they worship and pray – no-one!! The shooter says he was ‘inspired’ by Dylan Roof and Andres Brevik. I believe that this spike in White Nationalism and White Supremacy is a manifestation of a mental illness that has not been diagnosed as such not yet! We must start to analyze this more closely especially when HATE AND VIOLENCE become a key part in the equation. Trump’s denial and downplaying of the problem isn’t helping anything.
Bringing this out into the OPEN and discussing it in Open Forums is a start in the right direction. I think people are uncomfortable with these issues and topics because it forces us to examine our inner feelings and beliefs – possibly we don’t want to share with the world what we really believe and feel. The election of Trump brought a lot of “closet racists” out into the OPEN! They now feel empowered and emboldened. It sounds good to say: “I’m not prejudiced, I have many Muslim friends or many Jewish friends, or many Black friends.” It sounds good! But what is the reality?
The State of Texas along with the Department of Homeland Security have labeled me a “Threat” because I speak the truth!!
Take a look at me!! Look at me with my Big Beard and Kufi prayer cap! How has the Mainstream Media in Amerika as well as the harsh rhetoric of Donald J. Trump made you feel about Muslim Humyn Beings??
Look at me!! You see the photo!! Does it make you afraid? Do you feel angry? Do you want to see me harmed? Let’s talk about it. I don’t have all the answers sisters and brothers but I think we can figure this out together if we can figure this out together if we try!! Please Stop the Hate and LOVE ONE ANOTHER!!
Dare To Struggle, Dare to Win, All Power to the People!!
