Malcolm X had a very unique perspective on "freedom" he believed that it was a in this world it was a thing to be earned and not given out to those not deserving. I think that he beleived that it should be a right but especialy in his days it wasn't. He beleived that if we are worthy and want it than we have to fight for it. If we are already the possesors of freedom through an unfair avenue, example being a) being of high stature or b) haveing good connections or being member to a majority group then it is only right that the rights we have not earned may be taken away if others higher up or if a majority of people vote to do so. If the rights are not given at birth for reason of color, race, political standing, or another unjust cause then the rights should be free for all to earn. Malcolm X believed that the black race as a whole were unjustly denied there rights and therfore should be able to fight for these rights. Though at many times people tried to deny him this also he persisted and managed to make an impact in society as was widley known in his days.

Malcom X was and still is an extradinary person.  All the triumphs he had in his life he over came them.  That's why I'm doing my black history project on such an excellent person such as Malcom X.

MALCOM X IS NOW WHERE AS GOOD MAN AS MARTIN LUTHER KING WAS. MALCOLM X WAS A VIOLENT MAN WHO DID WRONG THINGS. I THINK MARTIN LUTHER KING IS A MAN WHO STOOD UP FOR WHAT WAS RIGHT. AND FOR THAT HE IS A MAN OF RIGHTEOUSNESS

Malcom x had great beliefs that there should be eaqual freedom and rights for everybody.  If you look at how unjust his race was treated you should understand Malcom had a good cause.  He conquered so much to fight for what was right.

Malcolm X was such an eloquent speaker and i can't believe the same black people he was helping assassinated him.Though he chose the violent approach doesn't mean he was bad.His perspective on freedom was unique.Everybody deserves to have freedom both black and white.I like him so much thats why I am doing my project on him.

Come on!  Without Malcolm X the Civil Rights movement would have never been as successful as it was.  Malcolm X attracted the poor, lower class African American.  This was the majority of the population.  Martin Luther King attracted the middle and upper class African American.  He also intrigued the whites with his Gandhi like performance.  Without either of them the Civil Rights movement would have been successful.  Malcolm also had to come back from being back stabbed by Elijah Mohamed, and find out who he was and what he wanted for his people.  One must take that into account.  That was time that was lost for him and his movement.  We all know that once he did get back he was assassinated.  Had that not happened he would have been even a greater contributer.

he was assasinated for preaching liberation to the segregated black communities, to the extent that the Nation of Islam would not accept, and for that he was shot 16 times by three muslims with a shotgun an 2 revolvers. Malcolm X evoke a society not just the black community and for that coloured people have human and civil rights today.

Malcolm X, born in 1925 in Omaha, Nebraska, was not an ordinary person. Malcolm was not the kind of kid thatís dream was to grow up and be a doctor. Malcolm wanted to speak out against the whites and win his freedom. He was a great man, and a civil rights leader, a curious teenager in Boston, prison resident in New York, faithful and energetic member of the Nation of Islam, and finally, the creator of the Muslim Mosque Inc. organization for all blacks no matter what your religion. Overall, Malcolm X was a very powerful person as well as a leader and has lived a fully experienced life.
