Change is always resisted externally as well by who are internally involved with a new organization. The timeline of this resistance spans as long as there is forward movement towards the change, which means it transcends time. Those within the Nation of Islam who were key to this resisteance may have died off, but they had babies. These individuals come with a few more tricks than those before.
This is an excellent writing that chronicles the slow, shrewed and calculating events the turned the Nation of Islam from a new force for a new world to a smorgazborg of religious and political correctness.
cloaked in the garb of yesterday and baptized in the rhetoric of arguably the nation's finest orator, this may have been one of the greatest cooptations of all time.
