Malcolm X – Ballot or Bullet


Mr. Moderator, Reverend Cleage, Brother Lomax,
brothers and sisters, and friends — and I see some enemies. In fact, I think we’d be
fooling ourselves if we had an audience this large and didn’t realize that there were some
enemies present. This afternoon we want to talk about “The
ballot or the bullet.” The ballot or the bullet explains itself. But before we get into it,
since this is the year of the ballot or the bullet, I would like to clarify some things
that refer to me personally concerning my own personal position. I’m still a Muslim. That is, my religion is
still Islam. My religion is still Islam. My religion is still Islam. I still credit Mr. Mohammed for what I know
and what I am. He’s the one who opened my eyes. At present, I’m the Minister of the
newly founded Muslim Mosque, Incorporated, which has its offices in the Teresa Hotel,
right in the heart of Harlem — that’s the black belt in New York city. And when we realize that
Adam Clayton Powell is a Christian minister, he’s the — he heads Abyssinian Baptist Church,
but at the same time, he’s more famous for his political struggling. And Dr. King is a Christian Minister, in Atlanta
— from Atlanta Georgia — or in Atlanta, Georgia, but he’s become more famous for being
involved in the civil rights struggle. There’s another in New York, Reverend Galamison —
I don’t know if you’ve heard of him out here — he’s a Christian Minister from Brooklyn,
but has become famous for his fight against a segregated school system in Brooklyn. Reverend
Cleage, right here, is a Christian Minister, here in Detroit. He’s the head of the “Freedom
Now Party.” All of these are Christian Ministers — All of these are Christian Ministers,
but they don’t come to us as Christian Ministers. They come to us as fighters in some other
category. I’m a Muslim minister. The same as they are
Christian Ministers, I’m a Muslim minister. And I don’t believe in fighting today in any
one front, but on all fronts. In fact, I’m a “Black Nationalist Freedom Fighter.” 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. So today, though Islam is my religious philosophy, my political,
economic, and social philosophy is Black Nationalism. You and I — As I say, if we bring up religion
we’ll have differences; we’ll have arguments; and we’ll never be able to get together. But
if we keep our religion at home, keep our religion in the closet, keep our religion
between ourselves and our God, but when we come out here, we have a fight that’s common
to all of us against a enemy who is common to all of us. The political philosophy of Black Nationalism
only means that the black man should control the politics and the politicians in his own community. The — The time — The time when white people can come in our community and get us to vote
for them so that they can be our political leaders and tell us what to do and what not
to do is long gone. By the same token, the time when that same white man, knowing that
your eyes are too far open, can send another negro into the community and get you and me
to support him so he can use him to lead us astray — those days are long gone too. The political philosophy of Black Nationalism
only means that if you and I are going to live in a Black community — and that’s where
we’re going to live, ’cause as soon as you move into one of their — soon as you move
out of the Black community into their community, it’s mixed for a period of time, but they’re
gone and you’re right there all by yourself again. We must — We must understand the politics
of our community and we must know what politics is supposed to produce. We must know what
part politics play in our lives. And until we become politically mature we will always
be mislead, lead astray, or deceived or maneuvered into supporting someone politically who doesn’t
have the good of our community at heart. So the political philosophy of Black Nationalism
only means that we will have to carry on a program, a political program, of re-education
to open our people’s eyes, make us become more politically conscious, politically mature,
and then we will — whenever we get ready to cast our ballot, that ballot will be —
will be cast for a man of the community who has the good of the community of heart. The economic philosophy of Black Nationalism
only means that we should own and operate and control the economy of our community.
You would never — You can’t open up a black store in a white community. White men won’t
even patronize you. And he’s not wrong. He’s got sense enough to look out for himself.
You the one who don’t have sense enough to look out for yourself. The white man — The
white man is too intelligent to let someone else come and gain control of the economy
of his community. But you will let anybody come in and take control of the economy of
your community, control the housing, control the education, control the jobs, control the
businesses, under the pretext that you want to integrate. No, you’re out of your mind. The political — The economic philosophy of
Black Nationalism only means that we have to become involved in a program of reeducation
to educate our people into the importance of knowing that when you spend your dollar
out of the community in which you live, the community in which you spend your money becomes
richer and richer; the community out of which you take your money becomes poorer and poorer.
And because these negroes, who have been mislead, misguided, are breaking their necks to take
their money and spend it with The Man, The Man is becoming richer and richer, and you’re
becoming poorer and poorer. And then what happens? The community in which you live becomes
a slum. It becomes a ghetto. The conditions become run down. And then you have the audacity
to — to complain about poor housing in a run-down community. Why you run it down yourself
when you take your dollar out. And you and I are in a double-track, because
not only do we lose by taking our money someplace else and spending it, when we try and spend
it in our own community we’re trapped because we haven’t had sense enough to set up stores
and control the businesses of our community. The man who’s controlling the stores in our
community is a man who doesn’t look like we do. He’s a man who doesn’t even live in the
community. So you and I, even when we try and spend our money in the block where we
live or the area where we live, we’re spending it with a man who, when the sun goes down,
takes that basket full of money in another part of the town. So we’re trapped, trapped, double-trapped,
triple-trapped. Anywhere we go we find that we’re trapped. And every kind of solution
that someone comes up with is just another trap. But the political and economic philosophy
of Black Nationalism — the economic philosophy of Black Nationalism shows our people the
importance of setting up these little stores and developing them and expanding them into
larger operations. Woolworth didn’t start out big like they are today. They started
out with a dime store and expanded and expanded and then expanded until today, they’re are
all over the country and all over the world, and they get to some of everybody’s money.
Now this is what you and I — General Motors’ the same way. They didn’t start out like
it is. It started out just a little rat race type operation. And it expanded and it expanded
until today it’s where it is right now. And you and I have to make a start and the best
place to start is right in the community where we live. So our people not only have to be reeducated
to the importance of supporting black business, but the black man himself has to be made aware
of the importance of going into business. And once you and I go into business, we own
and operate at least the businesses in our community. What we will be doing is developing
a situation wherein we will actually be able to create employment for the people in the
community. And once you can create some — some employment in the community where you
live it will eliminate the necessity of you and me having to act ignorantly and disgracefully,
boycotting and picketing some “cracker” some place else trying to beg him for a job. Anytime you have to rely upon your enemy for
a job, you’re in bad shape. When you have — He is your enemy. Let me tell you, you
wouldn’t be in this country if some enemy hadn’t kidnapped you and brought you here. On the other hand, some of you think you came here on the Mayflower. So as you can see brothers and sisters, today
— this afternoon, it’s not our intention to discuss religion. We’re going to forget
religion. 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. Whether you are — Whether you are a Christian,
or a Muslim, or a Nationalist, we all have the same problem. They don’t hang you because
you’re a Baptist; they hang you ’cause you’re black. They don’t attack me because I’m a
Muslim; they attack me ’cause I’m black. They attack all of us for the same reason; all
of us catch hell from the same enemy. We’re all in the same bag, in the same boat. We
suffer political oppression, economic exploitation, and social degradation — all of them from
the same enemy. The government has failed us; you can’t deny that. Anytime you live
in the twentieth century, 1964, and you walkin’ around here singing “We Shall Overcome,” the
government has failed us. This is part of what’s wrong with you —
you do too much singing. Today it’s time to stop singing
and start swinging. You can’t sing up on freedom,
but you can swing up on some freedom. Cassius Clay can sing, but singing
didn’t help him to become the heavyweight champion of the world; swinging helped him
become the heavyweight champion. This government has failed us;
the government itself has failed us, and the white liberals
who have been posing as our friends have failed us. And once we see that all these other sources
to which we’ve turned have failed, we stop turning to them and turn to ourselves. We
need a self help program, a do-it — a-do-it-yourself philosophy, a do-it-right-now philosophy,
a it’s-already-too-late philosophy. This is what you and I need to get with, and the only
time — the only way we’re going to solve our problem is with a self-help program. Before
we can get a self-help program started we have to have a self-help philosophy. Black Nationalism is a self-help philosophy.
What’s so good about it? You can stay right in the church where you are and still take
Black Nationalism as your philosophy. You can stay in any kind of civic organization
that you belong to and still take black nationalism as your philosophy. You can be an atheist
and still take black nationalism as your philosophy. This is a philosophy that eliminates the necessity
for division and argument. ‘Cause if you’re black you should be thinking black, and if
you are black and you not thinking black at this late date, well I’m sorry for you. 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. They’ll have you sittin’ in everywhere. It’s not so good to refer to
what you’re going to do as a “sit-in.” That right there castrates you. Right there it
brings you down. What — What goes with it? What — Think of the image of a someone sitting.
An old woman can sit. An old man can sit. A chump can sit. A coward can sit. Anything
can sit. Well you and I been sitting long enough, and it’s time today for us to start
doing some standing, and some fighting to back that up. When we look like — at other parts of this
earth upon which we live, we find that black, brown, red, and yellow people in Africa and
Asia are getting their independence. They’re not getting it by singing “We Shall Overcome.”
No, they’re getting it through nationalism. It is nationalism that brought about the independence
of the people in Asia. Every nation in Asia gained its independence through the philosophy
of nationalism. Every nation on the African continent that has gotten its independence
brought it about through the philosophy of nationalism. And it will take black nationalism
— that to bring about the freedom of 22 million Afro-Americans here in this country
where we have suffered colonialism for the past 400 years. America is just as much a colonial power as
England ever was. America is just as much a colonial power as France ever was. In fact,
America is more so a colonial power than they because she’s a hypocritical colonial power
behind it. What is 20th — What do you call second class
citizenship? Why, that’s colonization. Second class citizenship is nothing but 20th century
slavery. How you gonna tell me you’re a second class citizen? They don’t have second class
citizenship in any other government on this earth. They just have slaves and people who
are free. Well this country is a hypocrite. They try and make you think they set you free
by calling you a second class citizen. No, you’re nothing but a 20th century slave. Just as it took nationalism to move — to
remove colonialism from Asia and Africa, it’ll take black nationalism today to remove colonialism
from the backs and the minds of 22 million Afro-Americans here in this country. And 1964 looks like it might be the year of
the ballot or the bullet. Why does it look like it might be the year
of the ballot or the bullet? Because Negroes have listened to the trickery, and the lies,
and the false promises of the white man now for too long. And they’re fed up. They’ve
become disenchanted. They’ve become disillusioned. They’ve become dissatisfied, and all of this
has built up frustrations in the black community that makes the black community throughout
America today more explosive than all of the atomic bombs the Russians can ever invent.
Whenever you got a racial powder keg sitting in your lap, you’re in more trouble than if
you had an atomic powder keg sitting in your lap. When a racial powder keg goes off, it
doesn’t care who it knocks out the way. Understand this, it’s dangerous. And in 1964 this seems to be the year, because
what can the white man use now to fool us after he put down that march on Washington?
And you see all through that now. He tricked you, had you marching down to Washington.
Yes, had you marching back and forth between the feet of a dead man named Lincoln and another
dead man named George Washington singing “We Shall Overcome.” He made a chump out of you.
He made a fool out of you. He made you think you were going somewhere and you end up going
nowhere but between Lincoln and Washington. So today, our people are disillusioned. They’ve
become disenchanted. They’ve become dissatisfied, and in their frustrations they want action. And in 1964 you’ll see this young black man,
this new generation asking for the ballot or the bullet. That old Uncle Tom action is
outdated. The young generation don’t want to hear anything about the odds are against
us. What do we care about odds? When this country here was first being founded
there were 13 colonies. The — The whites were colonized. They were fed up with this
taxation without representation, so some of them stood up and said “liberty or death.”
Though I went to a white school over here in Mason, Michigan, the white man made the
mistake of letting me read his history books. He made the mistake of teaching me that Patrick
Henry was a patriot, and George Washington, wasn’t nothing non-violent about old Pat or
George Washington. Liberty or death was what brought about the
freedom of whites in this country from the English. They didn’t care about the odds.
Why they faced the wrath of the entire British Empire. And in those days they used to say
that the British Empire was so vast and so powerful when the sun — the sun would never
set on it. This is how big it was, yet these 13 little scrawny states, tired of taxation
without representation, tired of being exploited and oppressed and degraded, told that big
British Empire “liberty or death.” And here you have 22 million Afro-American
black people today catching more hell than Patrick Henry ever saw. And I’m — I’m here
to tell you in case you don’t know it — that you got a new — you got a new generation
of black people in this country who don’t care anything whatsoever about odds. They
don’t want to hear you old Uncle Tom handkerchief heads talking about the odds. No. This is
a new generation. If they’re gonna draft these young black men and send them over to Korea
or South Vietnam to face 800 million Chinese — if you’re not afraid of those odds, you
shouldn’t be afraid of these odds. Why is — Why does this loom to be such an
explosive political year? Because this is the year of politics. This is the year when
all of the white politicians are going to come into the Negro community. You never see
them until election time. You can’t find them until election time. They’re going to come
in with false promises, and as they make these false promises they’re gonna feed our frustrations
and this will only serve to make matters worse. I’m no politician. I’m not even a student
of politics. I’m not a Republican, nor a Democrat, nor an American, and got sense enough to know
it. I’m one of the 22 million black victims of the Democrats, one of the 22 million black
victims of the Republicans, and one of the 22 million black victims of Americanism. And
when I speak, I don’t speak as a Democrat, or a Republican, *nor an American.* I speak
as a victim of America’s so-called democracy. You and I have never seen democracy; all we’ve
seen is hypocrisy. When we open our eyes today and look around America, we see America not
through the eyes of someone who have — who has enjoyed the fruits of Americanism, we
see America through the eyes of someone who has been the victim of Americanism. We don’t
see any American dream; we’ve experienced only the American nightmare. We haven’t benefited
from America’s democracy; we’ve only suffered from America’s hypocrisy. And the generation
that’s coming up now can see it and are not afraid to say it. If you — If you go to jail, so what? If you
black, you were born in jail. If you black, you were born in jail, in the North as well
as the South. Stop talking about the South. Long as you south of the — Long as you south
of the Canadian border, you’re south. Don’t call Governor Wallace a Dixie governor; Romney
is a Dixie governor. Twenty-two million black victims of Americanism
are waking up and they’re gaining a new political consciousness, becoming politically mature.
And as they become — develop this political maturity, they’re able to see the recent trends
in these political elections. They see that the whites are so evenly divided that every
time they vote the race is so close they have to go back and count the votes all over again.
And that…which means that any block, any minority that has a block of votes that stick
together is in a strategic position. Either way you go, that’s who gets it. You’re —
You’re in a position to determine who will go to the White House and who will stay in
the dog house. You’re the one who has that power. You can keep Johnson in Washington
D.C., or you can send him back to his Texas cotton patch. You’re the one who sent Kennedy
to Washington. You’re the one who put the present Democratic Administration in Washington
D.C. The whites were evenly divided. It was the fact that you threw 80 percent of your
votes behind the Democrats that put the Democrats in the White House. When you see this, you can see that the Negro
vote is the key factor. And despite the fact that you are in a position to — to be the
determining factor, what do you get out of it? The Democrats have been in Washington
D.C. only because of the Negro vote. They’ve been down there four years, and they’re —
all other legislation they wanted to bring up they brought it up and gotten it out of
the way, and now they bring up you. And now, they bring up you. You put them first, and
they put you last, ’cause you’re a chump, a political chump. In Washington D.C., in the House of Representatives,
there are 257 who are Democrats; only 177 are Republican. In the Senate there are 67
Democrats; only 33 are Republicans. The Party that you backed controls two-thirds of the
House of Representatives and the Senate, and still they can’t keep their promise to you,
’cause you’re a chump. Anytime you throw your weight behind a political party that controls
two-thirds of the government, and that Party can’t keep the promise that it made to you
during election time, and you’re dumb enough to walk around continuing to identify yourself
with that Party, you’re not only a chump, but you’re a traitor to your race. And what kind of alibi do they come up with?
They try and pass the buck to the Dixiecrats. Now back during the days when you were blind,
deaf, and dumb, ignorant, politically immature, naturally you went along with that. But today
as your eyes come open, and you develop political maturity, you’re able to see and think for
yourself, and you can see that a Dixiecrat is nothing but a Democrat in disguise. You look at the structure of the government
that controls this country; it’s controlled by 16 senatorial committees and 20 congressional
committees. Of the 16 senatorial committees that run the government, 10 of them are in
the hands of Southern segregationists. Of the 20 congressional committees that run the
government, 12 of them in the — are in the hands of Southern segregationists. And they’re
going to tell you and me that the South lost the war. You, today, have — are in the hands of a
government of segregationists, racists, white supremacists who belong to the Democratic
party, but disguise themselves as Dixiecrats. A Dixiecrat is nothing but a Democrat. Whoever
runs the Democrats is also the father of the Dixiecrats, and the father of all of them
is sitting in the White House. I say and I say it again: You got a President who’s nothing
but a Southern segregationist from the state of Texas. They’ll lynch you in Texas as quick
as they’ll lynch you in Mississippi. Only in — in Texas they lynch you with a Texas
accent; in Mississippi they lynch you with a Mississippi accent. And the first thing the cracker does when
he comes in power, he takes all the Negro leaders and invites them for coffee to show
that he’s alright. And those Uncle Toms can’t pass up the coffee. They come away from the
coffee table telling you and me that this man is alright ’cause he’s from the South,
and since he’s from the South he can deal with the South. Look at the logic that they’re
using. What about Eastland? He’s from the South. Make him the President. He can —
If Johnson is a good man ’cause he’s from Texas, and being from Texas will enable him
to deal with the South, Eastland can deal with the South better than Johnson. Oh, I
say you been mislead. You been had. You been took. I was in Washington a couple weeks ago while
the Senators were filibustering, and I noticed in the back of the Senate a huge map, and
on this map it showed the distribution of Negroes in America, and surprisingly the same
Senators that were involved in the filibuster were from the states where there were the
most Negroes. Why were they filibustering the civil rights legislation? Because the
civil rights legislation is supposed to guarantee voting rights to Negroes in those states,
and those senators from those states know that if the Negroes in those states can vote,
those senators are down the drain. The Representatives of those states go down the drain. And in
the Constitution of this country it has a stipulation wherein whenever the rights, the
voting rights, of people in a certain district are violated, then the Representative who
— who’s from that particular district, according to the Constitution, is supposed to be expelled
from the Congress. Now, if this particular aspect of the Constitution was enforced, why
you wouldn’t have a cracker in Washington D.C. But what would happen when you expel
the Dixiecrat, you’re expelling the Democrat. When you destroy the power of the Dixiecrat,
you’re destroying the power — power of the Democratic Party. So how in the world can
the Democratic Party in the South actually side with you in sincerity, when all of its
power is based in the — in the South? These Northern Democrats are in cahoots with
the Southern Democrats. They’re playing a giant con game, a political con game. You
know how it goes. One of them — One of them comes to you and makes believe he’s for you,
and he’s in cahoots with the other one that’s not for you. Why? Because neither one of them
is for you, but they got to make you go with one of them or the other. So this is a con
game. And this is what they’ve been doing with you and me all these years. You know who “Dicky” is? Dicky is old Southern
cracker Richard — Richard Russell. Look here,
that are filibustering civil rights legislation.
You tell me how in the hell is he going to
be Johnson’s best friend? How can Johnson
be his friend and your friend too? No, that
man is too tricky. Especially if his friend
is still old Dicky.
Whenever the Negroes keep the Democrats in
power, they’re keeping the Dixiecrats in power.
Is this true? A vote for a Democrat is nothing
but a vote for a Dixiecrat. I know you don’t

but a vote for a Dixiecrat. I know you don’t like me saying that, but I…I’m not the kind
of person who come here to say what you like. I’m going to tell you the truth whether you
like it or not. Up here, in the North you have the same thing.
The Democratic Party don’t — don’t do it — they don’t do it that way. They got a
thing that they call gerrymandering. They — They maneuver you out of power. Even though
you can vote, they fix it so you’re voting for nobody; they got you going and coming.
In the South, they’re outright political wolves. the dog family. Now you take your choice.

It’s liberty or it’s death. It’s freedom for everybody or freedom for nobody. America today
finds herself in a unique situation. Historically, revolutions are bloody. Oh, yes, they are.
They haven’t never had a blood-less revolution, or a non-violent revolution. That don’t happen
even in Hollywood. You don’t have a revolution Whenever the Negroes keep the Democrats in
power, they’re keeping the Dixiecrats in power. You know who “Dicky” is? Dicky is old Southern

You going to choose a Northern dog or a Southern in which you love your enemy, and you don’t
have a revolution in which you are begging the system of exploitation to integrate you
into it. Revolutions overturn systems. Revolutions destroy systems. A revolution is bloody, but America is in
a unique position. She’s the only country in history in a position actually to become
involved in a blood-less revolution. The — The Russian revolution was bloody; Chinese
revolution was bloody; French revolution was bloody; Cuban revolution was bloody; and there
was nothing more bloody then the American Revolution. But today this country can become
involved in a revolution that won’t take bloodshed. All she’s got to do is give the black man
in this country everything that’s due him — everything. I hope that the white man can see this, ’cause
if he don’t see it you’re finished. If you don’t see it you’re going to be coming —
you’re going to become involved in some action — it’s useless because other countries have
atomic bombs. When two or three different

you want some action, you gotta come on down to Earth. And there’s more black people on
Earth than there are white people on Earth. I only got a couple more minutes. The white
man can never win another war on the ground. I prove it? Yes. Take all the action that’s
going on on this earth right now that he’s His days of war, victory, his great — his

preaches White Nationalism. That’s what he preaches. I say that’s what he preaches. The
whole church structure in this country is White Nationalism. You go inside a white church
— that’s what they preaching: White Nationalism. They got Jesus white, Mary white, God white,
everybody white — that’s White Nationalism. So what he does — the way he — the way he
— the way he circumvents the — the jealousy and envy that he ordinarily would incur among
the heads of the church, wherever he go into an area where the church already is you going
into trouble, ’cause they got that thing — what you call it — syndicated, they got
a syndicate just like the Racketeers have. I’m going to say what’s on my mind ’cause
the churches are, the preachers already proved to you that they got a syndicate. And when you’re out in the rackets, whenever
you’re getting in another man’s territory, you know, they gang up on you. And that’s
the same way with you — you ran into the and let the world see that Uncle Sam is guilty
of violating the human rights of 22 million Afro-Americans…. It’s a government filibuster. Any kind of
activity that takes place on the floor of
the Congress or the Senate, that’s the government.
Any kind of dilly-dallying, that’s the government.
Any kind of pussy-footing, that’s the government.
Any kind of act that’s designed to delay or
deprive you and me right now of getting full
rights, that’s the government that’s responsible.
And any time you find the government involved
in a conspiracy to violate the citizenship
or the civil rights of a people, then you
are wasting your time going to that government
expecting redress. Instead, you have to take
that government to the World Court and accuse
it of genocide and all of the other crimes
that it is guilty of today.
So those of us whose political, and economic,
and social philosophy is Black Nationalism
have become involved in the civil rights struggle.
We have injected ourselves into the civil
rights struggle, and we intend to expand it
from the level of civil rights to the level
of human rights. As long as you’re — As long
as you’re fighting on the level of civil rights,
you’re under Uncle Sam’s jurisdiction. You’re
going to his court expecting him to correct
the problem. He created the problem. He’s
the criminal. You don’t take your case to
the criminal; you take your criminal to court.
When the government of South Africa began
to trample upon the human rights of the people
of South Africa, they were taken to the U.N.
When the government of Portugal began to trample
upon the — the rights of our brothers and
sisters in Angola, it was taken before the
U.N. Why even the white man took the Hungarian
question to the U.N. And just this week Chief
Justice Goldberg was crying over 3 million
Jews in Russia about their human rights, charging
Russia with violating the U.N. charter because
of its mistreatment of the human rights of
Jews in Russia.
Now you tell me how can the plight of everybody
on this earth reach the halls of the United
Nations, and you have 22 million Afro-Americans
whose churches are being bombed, whose little
girls are being murdered, whose — whose leaders
are being shot down in broad daylight. Now
you tell me why the leaders of this struggle
have never taken it before the United Nations.
So our next move is to take the entire civil
rights struggle problem into the United Nations
and let the world see that Uncle Sam is guilty
of violating the human rights of 22 million
Afro-Americans….

rights, that’s the government that’s responsible.
And any time you find the government involved
in a conspiracy to violate the citizenship
or the civil rights of a people, then you
are wasting your time going to that government
expecting redress. Instead, you have to take
that government to the World Court and accuse
it of genocide and all of the other crimes
that it is guilty of today.
So those of us whose political, and economic,
and social philosophy is Black Nationalism
have become involved in the civil rights struggle.
We have injected ourselves into the civil
rights struggle, and we intend to expand it
from the level of civil rights to the level
of human rights. As long as you’re — As long
as you’re fighting on the level of civil rights,
you’re under Uncle Sam’s jurisdiction. You’re
going to his court expecting him to correct
the problem. He created the problem. He’s
the criminal. You don’t take your case to
the criminal; you take your criminal to court.
When the government of South Africa began
to trample upon the human rights of the people
of South Africa, they were taken to the U.N.
When the government of Portugal began to trample
upon the — the rights of our brothers and
sisters in Angola, it was taken before the
U.N. Why even the white man took the Hungarian
question to the U.N. And just this week Chief
Justice Goldberg was crying over 3 million
Jews in Russia about their human rights, charging
Russia with violating the U.N. charter because
of its mistreatment of the human rights of
Jews in Russia.
Now you tell me how can the plight of everybody
on this earth reach the halls of the United
Nations, and you have 22 million Afro-Americans
whose churches are being bombed, whose little
girls are being murdered, whose — whose leaders
are being shot down in broad daylight. Now
you tell me why the leaders of this struggle
have never taken it before the United Nations.
So our next move is to take the entire civil
rights struggle problem into the United Nations
and let the world see that Uncle Sam is guilty
of violating the human rights of 22 million
Afro-Americans….
[short audio gap…content uncertain]
[Uncle Sam…] and still has the audacity
or the nerve to stand up and represent himself
as the leader of the free world. Not only
is he a crook, he’s a hypocrite. There he
is standing up in front of other people, Uncle
Sam, with the blood of your and mine mothers
and fathers on his hands, with the blood dripping
down his jaws like a bloody-jawed wolf, and
still got the nerve to point his finger at
other countries. You can’t even get civil
rights legislation. And this man has got the
nerve to stand up and talk about South Africa,
or talk about Nazi Germany, or talk about
[unclear]. Nah, no more days like those.
So, I say in my conclusion the only way we’re
going to solve it — we gotta unite in unity
and harmony, and Black Nationalism is the
key. How we gonna overcome the tendency to
be at each other’s throats that always exists
in our neighborhoods? And the reason this
tendency exists, the strategy of the white
man has always been divide and conquer. He
keeps us divided in order to conquer us. He
tells you I’m for separation and you’re for
integration to keep us fighting with each
other. No, I’m not for separation and you’re
not for integration. What you and I is for
is freedom. Only you think that integration
will get you freedom, I think separation will
get me freedom. We both got the same objective.
We just got different ways of getting at it.
So I…studied this man, Billy Graham, who
preaches White Nationalism. That’s what he
preaches. I say that’s what he preaches. The
whole church structure in this country is
White Nationalism. You go inside a white church
— that’s what they preaching: White Nationalism.
They got Jesus white, Mary white, God white,
everybody white — that’s White Nationalism.
So what he does — the way he — the way he
— the way he circumvents the — the jealousy
and envy that he ordinarily would incur among
the heads of the church, wherever he go into
an area where the church already is you going
into trouble, ’cause they got that thing
— what you call it — syndicated, they got
a syndicate just like the Racketeers have.
I’m going to say what’s on my mind ’cause
the churches are, the preachers already proved
to you that they got a syndicate.
And when you’re out in the rackets, whenever
you’re getting in another man’s territory,
you know, they gang up on you. And that’s
the same way with you — you ran into the
you know, they gang up on you. And that’s
the same way with you — you ran into the
It’s a government filibuster. Any kind of
activity that takes place on the floor of
the Congress or the Senate, that’s the government.
Any kind of dilly-dallying, that’s the government.
Any kind of pussy-footing, that’s the government.
Any kind of act that’s designed to delay or
deprive you and me right now of getting full

But when you go to a church and you see the

together and elevate black people — join
that church. Join that church. If you see
where the NAACP is preaching and practicing
that which is designed to make Black Nationalism

One more thing: I was on a program in Illinois
recently with Senator Paul Douglas, a so-called
liberal, so-called Democrat, so-called white
man, at… which time he told me that our
African brothers were not interested in us
in Africa. He said the Africans are not interested
in the American Negro. I knew he was lying,
but during the next two or three weeks it’s
my intention and plan to make a tour of our
African homeland. And I hope that when I come
back, I’ll be able to come back and let you
know how our African brothers and sisters
feel toward us. And I know before I go there
that they love us. We’re one; we’re the same;
the same man who has colonized them all these
years, colonized you and me too all these
years. And all we have to do now is wake up
and work in unity and harmony and the battle
will be over.

of program that is sincerely designed to eliminate
the political, the economic, and the social
evils that confront all of our people, in

is give me a telephone call and I’ll be on

church, he don’t — he doesn’t try to start
a church. He just goes in preaching Christ.
And he says everybody who believe in Him,
you go wherever — you go wherever you find

since it helps all the churches they don’t
fight him.
Well, we gonna do the same thing, only our
gospel is Black Nationalism. His gospel is
White Nationalism; our gospel is Black Nationalism.

Detroit and elsewhere, all they got to do
is give me a telephone call and I’ll be on
the next jet right on into the city. is preaching White Nationalism. But when you go to a church and you see the
pastor of that church with a philosophy and a program that’s designed to bring black people
together and elevate black people — join that church. Join that church. If you see
where the NAACP is preaching and practicing that which is designed to make Black Nationalism
materialize — join the NAACP. Join any kind of organization — civic, religious, fraternal,
political, or otherwise that’s based on lifting the black man up and making him master of
his own community. It’ll be — It’ll be the — the ballot or
it’ll be the bullet. It’ll be liberty or it’ll be death. And if you’re not ready to pay that

man, at… which time he told me that our African brothers were not interested in us
in Africa. He said the Africans are not interested in the American Negro. I knew he was lying,
but during the next two or three weeks it’s evils that confront all of our people, in
Detroit and elsewhere, all they got to do feel toward us. And I know before I go there
that they love us. We’re one; we’re the same;
the same man who has colonized them all these

will be over.
I want to thank the Freedom Now Party and

but during the next two or three weeks it’s
my intention and plan to make a tour of our
African homeland. And I hope that when I come
back, I’ll be able to come back and let you
know how our African brothers and sisters
feel toward us. And I know before I go there
that they love us. We’re one; we’re the same;
the same man who has colonized them all these
years, colonized you and me too all these
years. And all we have to do now is wake up
and work in unity and harmony and the battle
will be over.
I want to thank the Freedom Now Party and
the [unclear]. I want to thank Milton and
Richard Henley for inviting me here this afternoon,
and also Reverend Cleage. And I want them
to know that anything that I can ever do,
at any time, to work with anybody in any kind
of program that is sincerely designed to eliminate
the political, the economic, and the social
evils that confront all of our people, in
Detroit and elsewhere, all they got to do
is give me a telephone call and I’ll be on
the next jet right on into the city.
is preaching White Nationalism.
But when you go to a church and you see the
pastor of that church with a philosophy and
a program that’s designed to bring black people
together and elevate black people — join
that church. Join that church. If you see
where the NAACP is preaching and practicing
that which is designed to make Black Nationalism
materialize — join the NAACP. Join any kind
of organization — civic, religious, fraternal,
political, or otherwise that’s based on lifting
the black man up and making him master of
his own community.
It’ll be — It’ll be the — the ballot or
it’ll be the bullet. It’ll be liberty or it’ll
be death. And if you’re not ready to pay that
price don’t use the word freedom in your vocabulary.
One more thing: I was on a program in Illinois
recently with Senator Paul Douglas, a so-called
liberal, so-called Democrat, so-called white
man, at… which time he told me that our
African brothers were not interested in us
in Africa. He said the Africans are not interested
in the American Negro. I knew he was lying,
but during the next two or three weeks it’s
territory, like he going to start up a new
church, he don’t — he doesn’t try to start
a church. He just goes in preaching Christ.
And he says everybody who believe in Him,
you go wherever — you go wherever you find
him. So this helps all the churches and so
since it helps all the churches they don’t
fight him.
Well, we gonna do the same thing, only our
gospel is Black Nationalism. His gospel is
White Nationalism; our gospel is Black Nationalism.
And the gospel of Black Nationalism, as I
told you, means you should control your own
— the politics of your community, the economy
of your community, and all of the society
in which you live should be under your control.
And…once you…feel that this philosophy
will solve your problem, go join any church
where that’s preached. Don’t join a church
where White Nationalism is preached. Now you
can go to a negro church and be exposed to
White Nationalism, ’cause you are — when
you walk in a negro church and a white Mary
and some white angels — that Negro church
is preaching White Nationalism.
But when you go to a church and you see the
pastor of that church with a philosophy and
a program that’s designed to bring black people
together and elevate black people — join
that church. Join that church. If you see

that, instead of going into somebody else’s
territory, like he going to start up a new
church, he don’t — he doesn’t try to start
a church. He just goes in preaching Christ.

you go wherever — you go wherever you find

that they love us. We’re one; we’re the same;
the same man who has colonized them all these
years, colonized you and me too all these
years. And all we have to do now is wake up
and work in unity and harmony and the battle
will be over.
I want to thank the Freedom Now Party and
the [unclear]. I want to thank Milton and
Richard Henley for inviting me here this afternoon,
and also Reverend Cleage. And I want them
to know that anything that I can ever do,
at any time, to work with anybody in any kind
of program that is sincerely designed to eliminate
the political, the economic, and the social
evils that confront all of our people, in
Detroit and elsewhere, all they got to do
is give me a telephone call and I’ll be on
the next jet right on into the city.
same thing. So how Billy Graham gets around
that, instead of going into somebody else’s
territory, like he going to start up a new
church, he don’t — he doesn’t try to start
a church. He just goes in preaching Christ.
And he says everybody who believe in Him,
you go wherever — you go wherever you find
him. So this helps all the churches and so
since it helps all the churches they don’t
fight him.
Well, we gonna do the same thing, only our
gospel is Black Nationalism. His gospel is
White Nationalism; our gospel is Black Nationalism.
And the gospel of Black Nationalism, as I
told you, means you should control your own
— the politics of your community, the economy
of your community, and all of the society
in which you live should be under your control.
And…once you…feel that this philosophy
will solve your problem, go join any church
where that’s preached. Don’t join a church
where White Nationalism is preached. Now you
can go to a negro church and be exposed to
White Nationalism, ’cause you are — when
you walk in a negro church and a white Mary
and some white angels — that Negro church
is preaching White Nationalism.
But when you go to a church and you see the
pastor of that church with a philosophy and
a program that’s designed to bring black people
together and elevate black people — join
that church. Join that church. If you see
where the NAACP is preaching and practicing
that which is designed to make Black Nationalism
materialize — join the NAACP. Join any kind
of organization — civic, religious, fraternal,
political, or otherwise that’s based on lifting
the black man up and making him master of
his own community.
It’ll be — It’ll be the — the ballot or
it’ll be the bullet. It’ll be liberty or it’ll
be death. And if you’re not ready to pay that
price don’t use the word freedom in your vocabulary.
One more thing: I was on a program in Illinois
recently with Senator Paul Douglas, a so-called
liberal, so-called Democrat, so-called white
man, at… which time he told me that our
African brothers were not interested in us
in Africa. He said the Africans are not interested
in the American Negro. I knew he was lying,
but during the next two or three weeks it’s
my intention and plan to make a tour of our
African homeland. And I hope that when I come
back, I’ll be able to come back and let you
know how our African brothers and sisters
feel toward us. And I know before I go there
that they love us. We’re one; we’re the same;
the same man who has colonized them all these
years, colonized you and me too all these
years. And all we have to do now is wake up
and work in unity and harmony and the battle

  1. I felt as if he was speaking right now…so much said back then that relates to whats still going on now..

  2. Man….I wish Malcolm X was alive and tell his side of the whole shitstorm about his connections with the CIA, Kruschev, Castro, and other international leaders. I heard a rumor (more like a recording from the 1961 radio interview) of Malcolm X meeting with those leaders back then and how it is all tied to, now, President Obama.

  3. They tried to ruin this speech with the weird mickey mouse voice working in tandum with his 40 mins in listen…Its distracting

  4. I so gonna use this speech! I'm a composer, producing electronic music. This sh*t gone down in Paris has really sharpened my anger, and I need to channelize it into music.

  5. On this day, Martin L. Kings birthday…. whom I love and appreciate, I choose to listen to Brother Malcolm as well Martin. Happy B Day Dr. King. PBUH

  6. Something I noticed from Malcolm's speech right from the beginning was his understanding of how humans always find something that alienates us from one another. He started to talk regarding his religion and how even though he may be a Muslim that it shouldn't be something that everyone should focus on because he is there not as a Muslim, but instead, as an activist, as he states "So today, though Islam is my religious philosophy, my political, economic, and social philosophy is Black Nationalism".

    He also understands that the people have the tendency to follow someone with power without question so he urges that they will not benefit society unless the think for themselves and decide what should and shouldn’t be allowed. This is a very "Enlightened" form of thinking which leads me to believe he studied what the enlightenment did for the French and would like to apply the social change that the enlightenment period brought and apply to America in regards to racism; he states "We must understand the politics of our community and we must know what politics is supposed to produce. We must know what part politics play in our lives. And until we become politically mature we will always be misled, lead astray, or deceived or maneuvered into supporting someone politically who doesn’t have the good of our community at heart"

    I loved the irony that he brought on his speech regarding how America has become a colonial power when it had to fight wars to break free from England. Now we see people keep fighting for freedom. It's almost as if we have gone full circle with America defying colonial power and then people fighting the same cause within America. He states, “America is just as much a colonial power as England ever was. America is just as much a co-lonial power as France ever was. In fact, America is more so a colonial power than they be-cause she’s a hypocritical colonial power behind it".

  7. What is the feedback in the background fam can you take this down and reupload please it messes up a truly timeless speech

  8. The most brilliant insight on the economic slavery to come if desegregation happened before the black community owned the businesses and financial power in the community or the outsiders would take the money to another neighborhood. This was the white mans way to keep black America down. Since the ideas of race separating intelligence and ability failed. Since cheap labor and strong handed control failed. They could still grab the financial power by a quick unorganized desegregation. I love our wonderful desegregated America but Malcolm saw the danger in it without power and money to back the black community. He was a brilliant mind.

  9. WE'RE HERE TO SET THE RECORD STRAIGHT WITH RIGHT KNOWLEDGE WITH RIGHT OVERSTANDING BEHIND ENEMIES LINE'S THEY ALL DEVIL'S HERE In THE UNITED SNAKES OF AMERICA 2016 &€£#%=÷[email protected]!)_&?.,"'-🏤🏡🏠🏪🗼🏦🏪💒🏦😰🎥📷📹

  10. I just want to say that Revolution is the only answer to the problems we face in America today. we can keep arguing about super delegates and the Electoral College & other things for the next 50 years. but until we start swinging, no changes will ever be made

  11. True today of 2017 about Trump and so called black leaders such as Steve Harvey, Kanye West, Martin Luther King's son meeting with him. Lying to the people about rights, the black community, etc. All lies today, Malcolm X was just a real lead and sad we don't have black leader like this beautiful brotha today. R.I.P. Brotha Macolm X

  12. Listen to Malcolm's last speech: February 14, 1965. We have NEVER had a leader who better understood how the media operates, how they manipulate your mind to feel however they want you to.

  13. This is why Trump won. People are realizing both parties are out for the blood of the working-class voter. I voted for Trump,who's bought & paid democrats and republicans to further his goals, so he's a rouge-1% player, not a bought& paid for politician. He'll bring back jobs by stopping them from bleeding out to other countries.'Bare-Back O'Bummer' has a hidden history of being a gay cocaine smoker. No wonder he did nothing to interfere with the crack-dealing gangs, terrorizing the South-Side of Chicago, where his wife Michael was born & raised and where he cut his political-teeth. Trump will drain the swamp and bring change to a corrupt political system.

  14. Malcolm speech is more relevant in the 21st century than in the 20th century because we haven't seen democracy yet world over -instead hypocrisy continue to thrive.

  15. What was so significant about this particular speech in 1964, was the foreshadowing of the crippling "Social welfare laws" that were enacted in 1964. Although he stated he wasn't one to study politics, Malcolm most certainly understood how social policy affects/effects culture. His message delivered in this speech still hold relevance and is still in "context" 53 years later.

  16. ….to face….{the odds of} 800 million Chinese…" one of the great analogies of all time! exact and true and serious but still humorous at the same time.

  17. WRITTEN IN CHAPTER OF BLOOD WRITTEN IN BLOOD VERIFICATION DEPARTMENT OF TRUTH RIGHTEOUSNESS

  18. Respect to Malcolm always.
    But in this day and time.
    " The ballot or the bullet."
    Will not get us black n brown folks any closer to the promise land.
    Just look at how elections are stolen?

    "The price of freedom is death."

  19. it's 2017 now. How's blacks running Atl.,GA. . Boston working for you & many other failed cities around America? Even better Deerborn, Michigan.

  20. iF ONLY HE WAS WHITE. HE WOULD HAVE BEEN THE PRESIDENT OF AMERICA. BUT HE WAS BLACK, SO HE HAD TO FIGHT TO JUST BE HUMAN.

  21. When he gave himself some time to think he became educated, because the human was made to think and learn and understand. He became aware of biggest hustle in human history. His conscientiousness, encyclopaedic reading and skills as a master orator, using clear parables and electrifying rhetoric, made him the only person able to shake to consciousness the sleeping masses. Malcolm was our “manhood” in the face-off against those who subjugate, exploit and wish not to be just.

  22. Best Speech to listen on MLK Day and to reflect on the civil right struggles of the past; but it is never finished.

  23. BLACK MARINES OF FREEDOM THEY DIED FOR FREEDOM THIS WHAT U NEED TO NOW WE WON THEIR WAR HERE INSIDE THE UNITED SNAKES OF AMERICA THEY LYNCHED THE BLACK COLORS SOLDIERS OF FREEDOM WE DID OUR DUTY

  24. Anytime you are walking around in the 21st century year 2018 saying #BLACK LIVES MATTER!! The government has failed you.

Punks and Fools!? 2018 Or last bet #4 get Raped or As Min. Malcolm X said the most neglected is https://twitter.com/parkcharlie1/status/990494997064564736

  27. Malcom-X knew about the principles of Freemasonry. Freemasons except all religions, but they act umongst each other with a unified will.

  28. A lot of his speeches were a bout being black . but what he failed to realize there is no such thing as black white Latino Philippino German or Russian …we are all ALIEN being's living a HUMAN being experience .

  29. The great revolutionaries are visionaries. Malcolm delivered this speech more than 5 decades ago, but it is relevant today and will be relevant tomorrow. There's no greater American or world leader like El-Hajj Malik El-Shabazz. We celebrate his life and we resurrect him by carrying on his legacy. The American public is frightened to even speak of his name during the so called Black History Month. The truth he carried frightens us because we've been so exposed to the lies that when the truth is finally spoken, it sounds so strange. Rest in power, Malik.

  30. All due respect to President Obama, but Mr.X is self taught and has a gift from God,he I'd on a whole different level, than President Obama, that is just the truth and no one can change that.!!!!

  31. As salaam alaykium wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu may peace be upon EL HAJJ EL MALIK SHABAZ as he had a slate of a new born infant righteousness will get us far and read please because take time to read the UM Al KATABI the mother of all books take your SHAHADA know the knowledge of the SUNNAH and the last RAHSOOLALLAH apstol messenger MUSTAFA MUHAMMAD IBN ABDULLAH ASAWWS) may peace be upon him while he is in the highest JANNAH means 7 HAVENS take this no fornicate no drinking if you only knew whats in it how they make it and honor your mother mother mother and your father GOD willing im ABDULLAH AFWA MUSTAFA JULAYBEEB AS SAADIQ thank you shuk ran non belivers believers and also the people that are in our cemetery may ALLAH make ease AMEEN

  32. Everything that you say, you shouldn't have to say that I promise.That's why his word is Bond.Facts.MALCOM X

  33. THANK YOU. Outstanding effort to make such an empowering speech available—maybe MX's best all time. Too bad the 2nd half is infected with some other voice's noise. I still hope this brings millions of listeners.

  34. America need to pay attention to leaders who warns it of domestic threats using racism as an excuse to keep America back

  35. AND THEY MAKE THE WORLD THINK THAT MARTIN LUTHER KING IS THE MAN…….AS THOUGH MALCOLM NEVER EXISTED…..EVERYTHING IS KING, KING, KING……MALCOLM WAS RESPONSIBLE FOR MOST OF OUR ACCOMPLISHMENTS AND AWARENESS AS A PEOPLE…..MOST PEOPLE TALK KING BECAUSE THEY(THE SYSTEM)PUSHES THAT KING NARRATIVE…….IF, AS A INDIVIDUAL, YOU STUDY THEM ON YOUR OWN, YOU'LL FIND YOURSELF FORGETTING KING…..Not saying that KING didn't contribute……

  36. This is 2019 we are still trapped inside the Belly of the colonizing parasitic pedophilic murderous beasts this nightmare must End

  37. All True to the Day to the day The Devil can not be reformed they are all disagreeable to live with on this planet Earth and everywhere else we must learn A Do forself way of living

  38. I just like what he did for gun rights and freedom of speech and how he woke people up to things other than race. Race is pretty much a made up social construct to file us under and thereby keep us separate from people who might be able to help each other out

  39. The word amazing is said in just about every comment!
    Malcolm man…ahead of his damn time.
    Smarter than he gets credit for.
    He’s beyond amazing.
