Day 140: A Quote From Malcolm X

I’m tired today, so I’ll simply leave you with one of my favorite quotes from Malcolm X. I first heard it on the Black Power Mixtape, which I still believe is on Netflix. Go check it out if you can.

As long as a white man does it, it’s all right. A Black man is supposed to have no feelings. But when a Black man strikes back, he’s an extremist. He’s supposed to sit passively and have no feelings. Be nonviolent and love his enemy no matter what kind of attack, be it verbal or otherwise, he’s supposed to take it. But if he stands up in any way and tries to defend himself, then he’s an extremist.
