    Subject: Autobiography of Malcolm X: Rewritten?

    I am Tom Larkin, E-mail, Tjlarkin98@aol.com. When I read the Autobiography of
    Malcolm X in the late 1960s, it had a list of items that Malcolm X
    recommended to the African-American community to improve their situation.
    That list was primarily a list of white middle class values like education,
    savings, etc.; however, the last item on the list was Hate Whites. That list
    apparently has been deleted from subsequent editions. When did this hapeen?
    Who did it? Why was it done? Do you believe that this is an appropriate way
    to change or rewrite history? Thank you for your kind attention. Thomas J.
    Larkin. Please note the capital "T" in my E-mail address.
