Default I found this the other day.. thought I'd share..

I was looking up about Malcolm x and come across something he said ....
Thought it something to think about....


And you dare to call me coloured...
"When I'm born I'm Black, when I grow up I'm Black, when I'm in the cold I'm Black, when I'm in the sun I'm Black, when I'm sick I'm Black, when I die I'm Black. And you... When you're born you're Pink, when you grow up you're White, when you're in the cold you're Blue, when you're in the sun Red, when you're sick you're Green, when you die you're Purple. And you dare to call ME a coloured....".

He was a key figure of his time.


........... At a speaking engagement in the Manhattan's Audubon Ballroom on February 21, 1965 three gunmen rushed Malcolm onstage. They shot him 15 times at close range.
he also said .......
"You don't have to be a man to fight for freedom. All you have to do is to be an intelligent human being." "I am not a racist. I am against every form of racism and segregation, every form of discrimination. I believe in human beings, and that all human beings should be respected as such, regardless of their color."

I did a paper on him when I was in the 8th grade. Very moving quotes from him.

We need Equal RIGHTS and Justice.

Deep deep topic, Malcolm X.

400 years worth of discussion.
