„Ihr könnt keinen Kapitalismus haben ohne Rassismus.“

— Malcolm X
Rede am 29. Mai 1964, The Harlem Hate-Gang-Scare, Speaks, ebd., S. 68 f'.'

„Man kann kein kapitalistisches System betreiben, wenn man kein Geier ist; man muss das Blut von jemand anderem saugen, um Kapitalist zu sein.“

— Malcolm X
Rede vom 20. Dezember 1964, At the Audubon, aus: Speaks, hgg. von George Breitman, Grove Press 1965, S. 121 f.

„Education is our passport to the future, for tomorrow belongs to the people who prepare for it today.“

— Malcolm X
Context: Education is an important element in the struggle for human rights. It is the means to help our children and our people rediscover their identity and thereby increase their self respect. Education is our passport to the future, for tomorrow belongs only to the people who prepare for it today. Speech at Founding Rally of the Organization of Afro-American Unity (28 June 1964), as quoted in By Any Means Necessary (1970)

„We need to expand the civil-rights struggle to a higher level—to the level of human rights. Whenever you are in a civil-rights struggle, whether you know it or not, you are confining yourself to the jurisdiction of Uncle Sam. No one from the outside world can speak out in your behalf as long as your struggle is a civil-rights struggle. Civil rights comes within the domestic affairs of this country.“

— Malcolm X
Context: We need to expand the civil-rights struggle to a higher level—to the level of human rights. Whenever you are in a civil-rights struggle, whether you know it or not, you are confining yourself to the jurisdiction of Uncle Sam. No one from the outside world can speak out in your behalf as long as your struggle is a civil-rights struggle. Civil rights comes within the domestic affairs of this country. All of our African brothers and our Asian brothers and our Latin-American brothers cannot open their mouths and interfere in the domestic affairs of the United States. And as long as it’s civil rights, this comes under the jurisdiction of Uncle Sam. But the United Nations has what’s known as the charter of human rights; it has a committee that deals in human rights. You may wonder why all of the atrocities that have been committed in Africa and in Hungary and in Asia, and in Latin America are brought before the UN, and the Negro problem is never brought before the UN. This is part of the conspiracy. This old, tricky blue eyed liberal who is supposed to be your and my friend, supposed to be in our corner, supposed to be subsidizing our struggle, and supposed to be acting in the capacity of an adviser, never tells you anything about human rights. They keep you wrapped up in civil rights. And you spend so much time barking up the civil-rights tree, you don’t even know there’s a human-rights tree on the same floor.

„I could spend the rest of my life reading, just satisfying my curiosity“

— Malcolm X
Context: I told the Englishman that my alma mater was books, a good library. Every time I catch a plane, I have with me a book that I want to read—and that’s a lot of books these days. If I weren’t out here every day battling the white man, I could spend the rest of my life reading, just satisfying my curiosity—because you can hardly mention anything I’m not curious about. Chapter 11, paragraph 59 http://www.uri.edu/library/inscriptions/almamater.html

„The future belongs to those who prepare for it today.“

— Malcolm X, Malcolm X, Black Liberation, and the Road to Workers' Power
