Malcolm X , nacido como Malcolm Little, y cuyo nombre oficial completo era El-Hajj Malik El-Shabazz , fue un orador, ministro religioso y activista estadounidense. Fue un defensor de los derechos de los afroamericanos, un hombre que acusó a los estadounidenses blancos en las más duras condiciones de sus crímenes contra sus compatriotas negros. En cambio, sus detractores lo acusaron de predicar el racismo y la violencia. Ha sido descrito como uno de los más influyentes afroamericanos en la historia estadounidense.

Malcolm X nació en Omaha . A los seis años su padre fue asesinado por su labor en defensa de los derechos de los trabajadores y su madre ingresó en un hospital psiquiátrico a causa de la locura que le produjo el hecho de que le quitaran la custodia de sus hijos. Después de vivir en una serie de casas de acogida, Malcolm X se involucró en el hampa de Boston y Nueva York, y en 1945 fue condenado a entre ocho y diez años de prisión.

En la cárcel, Malcolm X se convirtió en miembro de la Nación del Islam, una secta musulmana dirigida por Elijah Muhammad, y tras su libertad condicional en 1952, se convirtió en ministro de la organización. Durante casi una docena de años fue la cara pública de la Nación del Islam, pero las tensiones entre él y Muhammad llevaron a su salida de la organización en marzo de 1964.

Tras abandonar la Nación del Islam, Malcolm X hizo la peregrinación a La Meca y se convirtió al sunismo. Viajó extensamente por toda África, Oriente Medio e incluso visitó la Unión Soviética. Esos viajes le cambiaron la visión que tenía del mundo y de la lucha por las libertades civiles. Fundó la Muslim Mosque, Inc., una organización islámica, y la secular Organización de la Unidad Afroamericana. Menos de un año después de abandonar la Nación del Islam, Malcolm X fue asesinado antes de dar un discurso en Nueva York.

„I’m nonviolent with those who are nonviolent with me. But when you drop that violence on me, then you’ve made me go insane, and I’m not responsible for what I do.“

—  Malcolm X
Context: I don’t mean go out and get violent; but at the same time you should never be nonviolent unless you run into some nonviolence. I’m nonviolent with those who are nonviolent with me. But when you drop that violence on me, then you’ve made me go insane, and I’m not responsible for what I do. And that’s the way every Negro should get. Any time you know you’re within the law, within your legal rights, within your moral rights, in accord with justice, then die for what you believe in. But don’t die alone. Let your dying be reciprocal. This is what is meant by equality. What’s good for the goose is good for the gander.

„A ballot is like a bullet. You don’t throw your ballots until you see a target, and if that target is not within your reach, keep your ballot in your pocket.“

—  Malcolm X
Context: The political philosophy of black nationalism means that the black man should control the politics and the politicians in his own community; no more. The black man in the black community has to be re-educated into the science of politics so he will know what politics is supposed to bring him in return. Don’t be throwing out any ballots. A ballot is like a bullet. You don’t throw your ballots until you see a target, and if that target is not within your reach, keep your ballot in your pocket.

„Islam is my religion, but I believe my religion is my personal business. It governs my personal life, my personal morals. And my religious philosophy is personal between me and the God in whom I believe; just as the religious philosophy of these others is between them and the God in whom they believe. And this is best this way. Were we to come out here discussing religion, we’d have too many differences from the outstart and we could never get together.“

And my religious philosophy is personal between me and the God in whom I believe; just as the religious philosophy of these others is between them and the God in whom they believe. And this is best this way. Were we to come out here discussing religion, we’d have too many differences from the outstart and we could never get together. [... ] If we bring up religion, we’ll be in an argument, and the best way to keep away from arguments and differences, as I said earlier, put your religion at home in the closet. Keep it between you and your God. Because if it hasn’t done anything more for you than it has, you need to forget it anyway.

„In 1964, it’s the ballot or the bullet.“

—  Malcolm X
Context: Lyndon B. Johnson is the head of the Democratic Party. If he’s for civil rights, let him go into the Senate next week and declare himself. Let him go in there right now and declare himself. Let him go in there and denounce the Southern branch of his party. Let him go in there right now and take a moral stand—right now, not later. Tell him don’t wait until election time. If he waits too long, brothers and sisters, he will be responsible for letting a condition develop in this country which will create a climate that will bring seeds up out of the ground with vegetation on the end of them looking like something these people never dreamed of. In 1964, it’s the ballot or the bullet.

„A fox and a wolf are both canine, both belong to the dog family. Now you take your choice. You going to choose a Northern dog or a Southern dog? Because either dog you choose, I guarantee you’ll still be in the dog house. This is why I say it’s the ballot or the bullet. It’s liberty or it’s death. It’s freedom for everybody or freedom for nobody.“

„I believe in recognizing every human being as a human being, neither white, black, brown nor red.“

—  Malcolm X
Context: I believe in recognizing every human being as a human being, neither white, black, brown nor red. When you are dealing with humanity as one family, there's no question of integration or intermarriage. It's just one human being marrying another human being, or one human being living around and with another human being. Interview http://www.malcolm-x.org/docs/int_pbert.htm for the Pierre Berton Show. Toronto, Ontario, (19 January 1965)

„Once you change your philosophy, you change your thought pattern. Once you change your thought pattern, you change your — your attitude. Once you change your attitude, it changes your behavior pattern and then you go on into some action.“

—  Malcolm X
Context: Once you change your philosophy, you change your thought pattern. Once you change your thought pattern, you change your — your attitude. Once you change your attitude, it changes your behavior pattern and then you go on into some action. As long as you gotta sit-down philosophy, you’ll have a sit-down thought pattern, and as long as you think that old sit-down thought you’ll be in some kind of sit-down action.
