Malcom X Essay

538 words - 3 pages

We watched and read the biography of Malcolm X in class these past couple of weeks. And in both the movie and the film they portrayed Malcolm to be an extremist leader and a racist. He hated white and preached the use of force at any means necessary. He wanted to take away everything so many other Black leaders at the time worked fro and that was to get rid of segregation in society he wanted to keep everything segregated. Then after going to Mecca he changed and did accept white help but they could not join his new church. There was so much emotion involved in the movie it was hard not to feel something on way or another.I ...view middle of the document...

Then eventually it would only ending up in blood shed and ruin the whole Equal Rights movement. This was not the best way to preach to his followers to use violence if necessary. How can you expect to have the white man not bother you if you are too running around with guns?Secondly Malcolm X was a racist and hated all the white men. His famous quote about JFK proved this fact when he said "the chickens came home to roost." The scene where the college coed was sincerely trying to help his cause and he turned he down right away. He never wanted the help of a white man and I think that was not smart. Not all white people are they same and he should I realized that. I do not think I am like any of the people Malcolm thinks of when he sees a white man. His racist propaganda never helped his cause and only caused more hypocorism about him and the Islamic faith. His ideals on how the white man is the devil and we are all evil are ludicrous. I know I am not an evil person and I would never treat anyone they way some whites have. It's true there are some bad white people but at the same time there are some bad black people.I believe after his pilgrimage to Mecca he was truly a changed man and not just acting in front of the cameras. He understood that not all people are bad and they can help him. After spending time with white Muslims he was a changed man. He also cared about his family more than before and knew that they where very important to them. He knew that the Nation of Islam would hurt them.
