BOOKS ON BLACKS
“Read, Baby, Read” (Dec. 19) commends the thief, dope-peddler, and pimp Malcolm X as a sensitive highly intelligent black leader. Stokely Carmichael and Eldrige Cleaver are also included in the recommended list of readings. No doubt one can learn something of the criminal mind by reading these authors; but the article would have been better had some elementary Christian morality been used in assessing the merits of these protagonists of riot, arson, and murder.
