I Malcolm X was born on May 21, 1925. Life was hard for me but I always did my best to help my community. Back when I was younger black people were treated differently than white people. My father was an outspoken supporter of Black Nationalist leader Marcus Garvey, and as a result my family incurred the wrath of various white vigilante groups.
When I was still in my mothers’ stomach and not yet born, our house was set on fire and the “all white emergency line” refused to respond or do anything about it. All of my siblings, and I were separated into different foster homes.
I had made a newspaper, my advice may have been harsh but, it did end up coming in handy. I told everyone, “You don’t have a peaceful revolution...You don’t have a turn-the-cheek revolution” I knew that anything blacks wanted or needed we had to fight for it we couldn’t be peaceful because nothing was changing and everything was just perfect for the whites and us blacks were treated horribly.
We could not stand for that anymore so we had to fight for change and for our rights as black people.
School was the worst for me all because of my race, black.. I was black. When I was asked by my teacher what I wanted to be when I got older I said, “ Lawyer, I want to be a lawyer,” She responded, “ the first thing in life is being realistic, think of something a black person could be. Have you ever thought of carpentry.”
A little bit after that day I was kicked out of school and sent to juvenile, I then dropped out of school at the age of 15.
