We can never forget or fail to recognize what the African-American experience, struggle and history has been in America. Forty-four years ago, Malcolm X delivered one of his greatest speeches titled “The Ballot or the Bullet.”
Many people have labeled Malcolm X as a racist or one that preached hatred of anything not of African descent. Anyone that has studied him understands that this is a great lie and has destroyed much of a message that should be embraced by the African-American communities… self-help, self-awareness, education, spiritual wellbeing, love and respect.
Take some time to hear (not listen) him in his own words… hear what he said in Detroit, April 24, 1964… hear a message he gave to African-Americans that could easily be given today.
Make sure you key in on his call for African-Americans to be responsible to themselves and stop asking for others to help them. Also key in on his tongue lashing of the Democratic Party and how it has failed the African-American support… this was 44 years ago and we still don’t listen.
