Malcolm X, African-American activist and member of the Nation of Islam, spent most of his life fighting racism and white supremacy in the United States. This paper outlines several key experiences in Malcolm X's life and connects them to his actions, using quotes from his autobiography to support its conclusions.
From the Paper:"In doing so, Malcolm X redefined for himself the role of white people in addressing the persisting problems of racism in America. Before, the white man was automatically considered to be the enemy and hence nothing outside of complete separation could solve the myriad of problems facing the American black man. However, with the focus on society itself Malcolm X was finally able to see that not all white men were determined to see him fail. " "The true Islam has shown me that a blanket indictment of all white people is as wrong as when whites make blanket indictments against blacks," he proclaimed."
