    who are you?
    you dont know?
    Dont tell me negro
    thats nothin
    what were you before the white man named you a negro
    what was your name?
    it couldnt have been smith or jones or bush or powell
    that wasnt your name
    they dont have those kind of names where you and i came from
    no what was your name?
    and why dont you now know what your name was then
    where was your history?
    how did a man wipe out your history?
    how did the man what did the man do to make you as dumb, as you are right now

    [MALCOM X]
    no negro leaders have fought for civil rights
    they paid for civil rights
    they have begged the white man for civil rights
    they have begged the white man for freedom
    and anytime you beg another man to set you free
    you will never be free
    freedom is something you have to do for yourselves
    and until the american negro lets the white man know
    that we are really really ready and willing to pay the price that is destin for freedom
    our people will always be walking around and second class citizens or what you call twentith century slaves
    what price are you talking about sir?
    the price of freedom is death
