Happy Birthday To You

Like an unchecked cancer, hate corrodes the personality and eats away its vital unity. Hate destroys a man's sense of values and his objectivity. It causes him to describe the beautiful as ugly and the ugly as beautiful, and to confuse the true with the false and the false with the true

Returning violence for violence multiplies violence, adding deeper darkness to a night already devoid of stars... Hate cannot drive out hate: only love can do that.

We are prone to judge success by the index of our salaries or the size of our automobile rather than by the quality of our service and relationship to mankind.

When you are right you cannot be too radical; when you are wrong, you cannot be too conservative.

Discrimination is a hellhound that gnaws at Negroes in every waking moment of their lives to remind them that the lie of their inferiority is accepted as truth in the society dominating them.

Peace Brother,

Unlike many, I never stopped loving this man or his philosophy when I started reading about Malcolm X. I can't stand when people compare the two - usually derisively. Both men had their people's best interests at heart and were only concerned about the upliftment of their people.

I wish some of these so-called black church leaders had half their strength, integrity and intelligence.
