Q: What uplifted you the most about Malcolm X's philosophy?

Muhammad Rasheed

"If you are the son of a man who had a wealthy estate and you inherit your father's estate, you have to pay off the debts that your father incurred before he died. The only reason that the present generation of white Americans are in a position of economic strength... is because their fathers worked our fathers for over 400 years with no pay... We were sold from plantation to plantation like you sell a horse, or a cow, or a chicken, or a bushel of wheat... All that money... is what gives the present generation of American whites the ability to walk around the earth with their chest out... like they have some kind of economic ingenuity. Your father isn't here to pay. My father isn't here to collect. But I'm here to collect and you're here to pay." ~Malcolm X
The fact that his message is continuously misrepresented as villainy by the diabolical, Über-selfish white racist aristocracy—even up into the present day—means that Bro. Malcolm was on the right path and that particular social justice baton needs to be carried forth.
