Malcolm X’s Family To File $100 Million Lawsuit Alleging CIA, FBI Covered Up His Assassination | Eastern North Carolina Now

    The family of civil rights activist Malcolm X announced Tuesday, the 58th anniversary of his death, that they plan to file a $100 million wrongful death lawsuit against federal and state government agencies for allegedly covering up evidence related to his assassination in 1965.

    Malcolm X was shot and killed while speaking at the Audubon Ballroom in New York City on February 21, 1965. Nearly 60 years later, two of his daughters, Ilyasah Shabazz and Qubilah Shabazz, along with their attorneys Ben Crump and Ray Hamlin, said during a press conference on Tuesday they were seeking "justice" for the revolutionary and will name the city of New York, the state of New York, the NYPD, FBI, and the CIA as defendants.

    "For years our family has fought for the truth to come to light concerning his murder, and we'd like our father to receive the justice that he deserves," Shabazz said. "The truth about the circumstances leading to the death of our father is important - not only to his family but to many followers, many admirers ... And it is our hope that litigation of this case will finally provide some unanswered questions. We want justice served for our father."

    In January 2022, the New York Times reported Muhammad A. Aziz and Khalil Islam were wrongfully convicted of killing Malcolm X and were later awarded $36 million by New York late last year after filing lawsuits against the state after serving over two decades in prison.

    A New York City Law Department spokesman said in October 2022 that the settlement "brings some measure of justice to individuals who spent decades in prison and bore the stigma of being falsely accused of murdering an iconic figure."

    "Based on our review, this office stands by the opinion of former Manhattan District Attorney Cy Vance, who stated, based on his investigation, that 'there is one ultimate conclusion: Mr. Aziz and Mr. Islam were wrongfully convicted of this crime,'" he added.

    Shabazz said, per The Associated Press, that the agencies "conspired with each other and with other individuals and acted, and failed to act, in such a way as to bring about the wrongful death of Malcolm X."

    Lawyers for Malcolm X's family argue Aziz and Islam are also entitled to compensation.

    Crump, who has been involved in some of the most controversial cases involving police in recent history, said, according to an ABC report, "if the government compensated the two gentlemen that were wrongfully convicted for the assassination of Malcolm X with tens of millions of dollars, then what is to be the compensation for the daughters who suffered the most from the assassination of Malcolm X?"

    Crump told The Associated Press that family members and lawyers of Malcolm X allege government agencies conspired to assassinate the civil rights leader.

    "They infiltrated many civil rights organizations," he said.

It has been far too many years since the Woke theology interlaced its canons within the fabric of the Indoctrination Realm, so it is nigh time to ask: Does this Representative Republic continue, as a functioning society of a self-governed people, by contending with the unusual, self absorbed dictates of the Woke, and their vast array of Victimhood scenarios?
  Yes, the Religion of Woke must continue; there are so many groups of underprivileged, underserved, a direct result of unrelenting Inequity; they deserve everything.
  No; the Woke fools must be toppled from their self-anointed pedestal; a functioning society of a good Constitutional people cannot withstand this level of "existential" favoritism as it exists now.
  I just observe; with this thoughtful observation: What will happen "when the Vikings are breeching our walls;" how do the Woke react?
