Best Black People of All Time

This is about the most amazing, great and inspirational black People

The Top Ten

1 Martin Luther King Jr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was an American Baptist minister, activist, humanitarian, and leader in the African-American Civil Rights Movement.

Perhaps not the greatest in the world, but certainly one of the most recognizable figures in American history.

As for the "Have you met ALL 'black people of all time? '" comment... um, no. So what? The same observation could be made on almost all of the most popular lists on this site. Best songs of all time... "have you heard every song ever created? " No, nobody has. Best movies... nope, nobody has watched every movie either. Doesn't mean people can't have a little fun and debate the topic. A comment like this adds nothing. It's just there to piss people off.

And since when is it racist to use the acceptable term for a race of people? It's not racist to call someone white, black, Hispanic, etc., although it may be indicative of one's own racial prejudices to consider it racist to call someone black.

One of my favorite human beings. His dream and his ability to see passed hatred and see the good in all humanity, fight for it and be willing to die for it!

And plus how is this racist you obviously don't think much. Every black person is equal every person is equal. what do you mean 'who am I to decide' so what your saying is who am I to show my opinion. Do you not get that by best I mean inspirational. And on The Top Tens you have to be selective! you make a list on best white people! Also look up the word racist. Many people are liking this list and have not found it racist so why don't you them!

This list is presumptuous, selectively

PC, offensive in many ways, and arguably racist. Have you met ALL "black people of all time? " Where's the list for "best white people of all time? " (Though it would be equally ridiculous.) What do you mean by "best," and just who are YOU to decide?

2 Malcolm X Malcolm X, born Malcolm Little and also known as el-Hajj Malik el-Shabazz, was an American Muslim minister and human rights activist.

I love this man so much. Don't believe what the textbooks and media says about him. They want you to believe he was a pro violent racist. Nothing can be further from the truth. Watch his speeches and interviews then read his autography. It is easy to see why he was the greatest black man He wasn't for violence. He was for self defense. He was dedicated to the truth even if it would cost him his life. He was extremely smart and intelligent and an excellent orator who could talk circles around his opponents. He loved black people and wanted them to know their true history and worth. Malcom X was ahead of his time. Everything he spoke about still happens today

Greatest man ever sad he died

"I want you to watch and see if I'm not right in what I say: that the white man in his press,
is going to identify me with "hate." He will make use of me dead, as he has made use of
me alive, as a convenient symbol of "hatred"—and that will help him to escape facing the
truth." — The Autobiography of Malcolm X

3 Nelson Mandela Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela was a South African anti-apartheid revolutionary, politician, and philanthropist, who served as President of South Africa from 1994 to 1999. He was the country's first black chief executive, and the first elected in a fully representative democratic election.

He was a Communist idiot - I don't care if he got a Peace Prize.

6 Rosa Parks Rosa Louise McCauley Parks was an African American civil rights activist, whom the United States Congress called "the first lady of civil rights" and "the mother of the freedom movement".

All she did was sit her old tired black ass down on a bus. MLK did all the work.

No that's not true. She helped black people earn their rights to sit in front seats. They boycotted the bus. - TheAwesomeDude54

To the ignorant people calling Michael Jackson a pedophile he was PROVEN innocent in his 2005 trial and a decade long SECRET FBI investigation. Michael Jackson was a wonderful kind compassionate smart black man loved around the world for his outstanding talent skill and contribution to music and humanitarian work which he donated over $500 0000 to charity. He was also an adament childrens rights advocate who built Neverland just for children to experience their childhood which he never had and was going to build a hospital for children. All the people calling Michael Jackson a pedophile obviously don't know anything about him and just believe whatever nonsense the mainstream prints and needs to shut up before condemning an innocent man. Michael Jackson was too good for this world and they destroyed him for it. A real mockingbird. Rest in Peace Michael Jackson.

Stop casting blame on this guy for things he obviously wouldn't do, it's one thing for the skin color thing, which was in his genes. But, although he liked children, not to a dangerous level, the so-called molesting would not be the Michael Jackson we know and love.

He molested children, he shouldn't be here

He didn't betray the black community, he had he skin disorder vitiligo, which results in white patches on the skin.The cause of vitiligo is unknown.
