There's a lot of crossover here I think between Angry Black Man and Well-Intentioned Extremist, plus the YMMV of "your terrorist is our freedom fighter".

I want to suggest now an addition to the main description linking these things and also possibly shifting this to a YMMV trope.

FWIW, the name of this page is not as cool as whoever thought of it thinks it is.

Why don't we have a mention of Magneto here? I figure he at least deserves a not on how he's the Malcom X to Prof X's Martin Luther King. (I JUST got the irony)

That's an interesting idea- however, it would require redefining the trope to include characters of all nationalities instead of just Africans.

...But considering how few non-African characters fit the trope's other criteria, that probably wouldn't be too problematic.
