He came from nothing
(father killed by KKK, mother institutionalized, grew up in foster homes)
suckered in by a criminal lifestyle goes to jail at 20.
"This is truth, you can't fight this. Whatcha gonna fight it with? If it's truth the only thing you gonna fight it with is lies and lies don't stand up against the truth, that truth don't even have to fight! All the truth got to do is sit there. You got lies all shook up."
Think about the way at which he turned his life around and reinvent himself from a hustler/gangster to a minister, world leader. By the end of his life he was being received by heads of state in Africa and the Middle East, not only that domestically he had the FBI, CIA, NYPD and the state department after him...
So when you've made that many enemies you know you've done something right.
"I'm for truth, no matter who tells it. I'm for justice, no matter who it's for or against."
