Malcolm X[edit]

Hello! The Wikipedia article, Malcolm X, is on my watch list so I noticed your recent edit there in which you removed 'Muslim minister'. It is in this role that Malcolm X first became notable—a minister in the U.S. organization, the Nation of Islam. Later, he embraced Sunni Islam and completed the Hadj. He became one of the two most important voices in the struggles against white supremacy in the U.S. The lede is a summary of the rest of the article. His role and occupation are important facts for the lede. For this reason I reverted your edit.

I think the appearance of the phrase "was an African-American Muslim minister" is subject to interpretation that Malcolm X is a minister who is a Muslim because the the two blue Wikilinks run together. Best practice is to have Wikilinks not be directly adjacent. However, even so, "African-American Muslim minister" is the literal statement, and is necessary to properly characterize the role in which Malcolm X rose to notability. I believe that any Wikipedia article on a person notable as a minister of any religion will be characterized in the lede as a name of religion appropriate name of the role.

If you still think otherwise, please open a discussion at the article talk page. There have been extensive discussions about the lede (as well as other parts of the the article. Many editors are actively engaged with the article. — Neonorange (Phil) 22:18, 16 February 2018 (UTC)
