Malcolm X: It’s disgraceful for black people to picket and beg for jobs

Malcolm X was a great man, most of us know this. He said things that others would not say, and he doesn’t always get the recognition he deserved.

But things are changing, and Malcolm is starting to be loved by millions for his visionary idea on just what it would take for African Americans to get ahead economically, politically and otherwise.

This is part of a short speech that Malcolm gave many years ago that reflects on why black people must own their own businesses. According to Malcolm, it is disgraceful and humiliating for black people to picket whites to give them jobs when we have the ability to create jobs for ourselves. Take a listen to this clip and use it for motivation as you work to change your life.
