Malcolm & Martin

My Learning Mate from Saudi Arabia (P.S. He doesn’t know about my ********), who is extremely fond of Malcolm X. Malcolm to him is like Nancy Ajram to some Arab guys!. He sent me a youtube video: ‘Malcolm X: Oxford University Debate’. I have listened to some speeches of Malcolm X, but I believe that Martin Luther was more reasonable and friendly in the things he called for. For example, Malcolm X once said: “There is no peace with white man!”. I totally disagree with him on that point, I know that it is hard to make human being “accept each other no matter who they are and where they come from”. However, I believe that peace and mutual respect between humans can be always achieved. By the way, both of the two ended up being assassinated: Martin Luther (on the left) was assassinated on April 4, 1968. While Malcolm X (on the right) was assassinated on February 21, 1965.

I am sharing this video with you, because I liked a phrase Malcolm X had said in it. He said:

“I have more repspect for a man who let me know where he stands, even if he is wrong. Than a one who comes up like an angel and is nothing but a devil.”
