It was natural enough. To be white in Mississippi is to be a Republican, 
to be black is to be a Democrat. So when the leaders of the Malcolm X 
Grassroots Organization, heir to organizational efforts in Jackson 
Mississippi since the early 1970s considered running candidates for 
local office they did what looked like the sensible thing. They ran 
Chokwe Lumumba and his son Chokwe Antar as Democrats. Kali Akuno, a 
former member of the MXGM leadership team now says that joining the 
Democrats was a strategic compromise “made in error.”
