The Financial Crisis, Malcolm X, and Barack Obama

You will never get real freedom and recognition between black and white people in this country without destroying the country, without destroying the present politcal system, without destroying the present economic system, without rewriting the entire constitution. It will be a complete destruction of everything that America supposedly stands for.

Malcom X

Only Malcom X’s autobiography seemed to offer something different. His repeated acts of self-creation spoke to me. The blunt poetry of his words. His unadorned insistence on respect. He promised a new and uncompromising order, martial in its discipline.

–Barack Hussein Obama

Video of both quotes and much, much more.
