Malcolm X : Stand For Something or Fall For Anything

Malcolm X : Stand For Something or Fall For Anything

Nobody can give you freedom. Nobody can give you equality or justice or anything. If you’re a man, you take it.

– Malcolm X

***

 Our objective is complete freedom, justice and equality by any means necessary.

– Malcolm X

***

You show me a capitalist, and I’ll show you a bloodsucker.
– Malcolm X

***

In all our deeds, the proper value and respect for time determines success or failure.
– Malcolm X

***

Without education, you are not going anywhere in this world.
– Malcolm X

***

I believe in a religion that believes in freedom. Any time I have to accept a religion that won’t let me fight a battle for my people, I say to hell with that religion.
– Malcolm X

***

If you don’t stand for something you will fall for anything.
– Malcolm X

***

If you have no critics you’ll likely have no success.
– Malcolm X

***

The day that the black man takes an uncompromising step and realizes that he’s within his rights, when his own freedom is being jeopardized, to use any means necessary to bring about his freedom or put a halt to that injustice, I don’t think he’ll be by himself.
– Malcolm X

***

There is no better than adversity. Every defeat, every heartbreak, every loss, contains its own seed, its own lesson on how to improve your performance the next time.
– Malcolm X

***

Education is the passport to the future, for tomorrow belongs to those who prepare for it today.
– Malcolm X

***

I have more respect for a man who lets me know where he stands, even if he’s wrong. Than the one who comes up like an angel and is nothing but a devil.
– Malcolm X

I am a first generation Jamaican immigrant whose experiences and accomplishments were made possible by the courage, sacrifices and the heroic acts of many whose bodies have rotted away in unmarked graves. Those are my heroes. Their sacrifices and death paved the way for my children and I. Failure to Listen is a token of my eternal gratitude. Failure to Listen is a tribute those generations of unmarked graves occupied by people of all races whose ultimate sacrifice of life opened the door for me and others, THANK YOU. Failure to Listen https://failuretolisten.wordpress.com/ uses cultural lenses to appreciate and understand the relationships between current events and our values, beliefs and attitudes. Culture is everything without it we are nothing. Failure to Listen will take you on a journey to recognize the beauty of our differences as the seeds to creativity, innovation and resolving disparities. By sharing my personal and professional experiences, I hope to do justice to the perspectives of those who are rarely heard or listened to. This site is not to incite anger but rather to provoke thought. It is my hope that Failure to Listen will work to foster intergroup dialogues and motivate readers to step outside the box and get to know ALL PEOPLE. In the spirit of Martin Luther King, let's join hands and remember his famous speech about a dream... A small group of thoughtful people could change the world. Indeed, it's the only thing that ever has. -Margaret Mead
