I apologize BlackOuroboros. I used the term, and included a link to its historical definition, for the reasons I had stated in the original post, not for shock value. I feel that Malcolm X's explanation of the term is very relevant to almost any non-equal power structure.
Also, I'm not trying to silence anyone. I fully encourage people to disagree with me. I wouldn't really bother posting stuff if everyone agreed with me all the time.
Again, sorry if I offended you.
I found this article a couple of days ago and it sums up a lot of my feelings towards the current culture. I don't fully agree with everything he says, but I feel a lot of the observations are accurate.
